It's been one of those weeks...

Monday was a public holiday, so EVERYONE was at the river in the morning.
Dui and Bella were entangled in burrs that had to be cut out.
Early....about 2:30 a.m. that night, Dui wanted out.
We all went out, then after about 10 minutes, Bella and Roxy wanted in.
Twenty minutes later, Dui barked to come in.
About 20 minutes later, he wanted out.  This was the pattern until 4 a.m. when SHE gave up any chance of sleep.

 Watched the depressing news...Las Vegas, Catalans, various murders and fatal car accidents....with cappuccino.
Then went into the study to find two huge
grass-filled vomits on the carpet.
Dui had decided to vomit in comfort.
As steam cleaning had been on the list of things to do,
SHE cleaned the carpet at 6:30 a.m.
We only got clean walks that day.

What is Roxy watching so intently?

 We thought it might be Kaci!
 But no, it was just a visitor.  Jedda who lives there is a
tiny black poodle.

 After taking these photos, SHE lost the camera.
Just put it down and couldn't find it...for two days.

Also, the back passenger side window went down
and won't come up.
Dui is getting the blame, he loves putting his
wet, muddy beard over  it.
Oh well, next week the timing belt has to be replaced, just add the window to the bill....
Bella....just hangin' around in the background.
 The weather has improved.  Cool nights and warm, sunny days,
for lying outside.

We are supposed to get some much-needed rain on Sunday.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.


  1. We have rain now, and that means mud, and that makes the Momster not so happy. It sounds like you could use a better week next week:)

  2. Wow - you have had one of THOSE kinds of weeks! I just love that picture of you with your huge smile and your crossed back legs, Roxy☺

  3. Dear Downunder Friends,

    We are sorry to hear about your week - it sounds like everyone from your person to the whole big world is not having a good one. We hope that your weather keeps getting better, and we hope you have a fun Walk, and we hope that some Good Things happen everywhere!

    Licks and wags,
    Ojo and Cobi

  4. That was the week that was
    Its over let it go.
    I drink my cappuccino now before I turn on the news, like I am preparing myself for the next jolt of sick humans.
    Thanks for being a friend

  5. Good Golly what a WEEK! When it rains it pours. You get Bella well then Dui decides he wants attention. Mom has a mini steam carpet cleaner by Bissel for pet accidents. Dad kinda lol when she bought it but OMCs he is singing mom's praises now. The Bissel is her 2nd favorite house hold appliance. First being her crock pot.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  6. Not a week you would like to repeat, for sure!

  7. Oh boy....we sure hope HER weekend is a bunches better than HER week!
    Jakey, Arty & Rosy

  8. Oh man ~ wells, it will only gets better, rights? I say, drink a margarita, and all is well...for awhile at least... sendin' {{hugs}}

  9. There was a lot going on around your house this week.

  10. That's why I fly rather than drive. No repair bills.

  11. Tell HER that I've had nights like that where all my dog towels and cleaner gets used before 6 AM.

    And I think our crew would want Dui to know... That "it's better to have eaten something and thrown it up. And then eaten it again than never to have eaten it at all." :-)

  12. We know about the vomits. Oh boy. River has had two 4:30 AM bed vomits on back to back night. No other vomits, just 4:30 AM in bed and then my parents are up waiing to see if she will vomit again. But we do fill our families lives with big smiles and lots of love so it is a break even day

  13. This morning at 5:30 as Dad cleaned the carpet after a digestive disaster, Mom sipped a cup of coffee and thought about how much simpler life was when she had only one dog.

  14. wow that was a week... I hope you all will have a relaxing weekend to reload your batteries and to start into new week with fresh power

  15. That is a fabulous photo of you Roxy with such a huge smile! Were you thinking of Ernie when you smiled like that? Sounds like the car is going to be expensive so have HER buy you a supply of treats before the car goes in the shop!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  16. Yes, yes yes, that photo in the bed DOES look like me.

    Maybe she is Chestie too?

  17. Good thing this week is about over.
    Hazel & Mabel

  18. Wow - that's a big week! Hopefully you get some relaxing after all that hard work..
    I do hate burrs though - they get tangled in my beautiful fur and the worst is when they get stuck around my paws... that's really painful!
    Wishing you all a bit of a relax :)
    Lots of licks, your good friend Morrie!

  19. We have weeks like that sometimes too. It always seems to get better so I hope your upcoming week is terrific.

  20. Oh my goodness - what a week you had. I hope that things are turning for the better now. That warm weather that's nice for lying out sounds fabulous!

  21. Wow what a week! Da news was so sad dis week. Mama cried more then once. Oh and I has been throwing up too and itching so I are on da rice & chicken broth diet again :/ We hopes your car gets all fixed up.
