Weekend mischief

Did you know that miniature horses look like kangaroos from a distance, through trees?

And you aren't supposed to race ahead, ignoring all yells by your peep?

AND you're not even allowed to bark at them anyway?
Roxy and Dui who got in big trouble.

We didn't either.

New Pups...

Today we got to meet Kenzie.  (She's Demi's, the German Shepherd, new sister).  Kenzie is part German Shepherd, too.  
She's an 11-week-old rescue pup.

This was our first meeting.  She was a bit nervous.

Bella says hello

Roxy and Dui saying hello
 Soon she was racing around with everyone.
When Coco and Ruby arrived, they brought another puppy.
This is BEAR, he's a cavoodle only 11 weeks old, too.

Dui getting up close and personal.
 Poor Bear was overwhelmed by the other 9 big dogs and spent lots of time under cars.
He'll get used to us soon.

Fangkful Friday

Finally, we were sprung from prison,
after 9 whole days!
We were so excited that when Deb came to get us with our leads, SHE said just let them out and they'll race down to get in the car.
Which we did!

Then we stopped by the river for a walk and run around.
 We definitely did not want to pose for photos.
 Roxy and even Bella took off and raced around the track.
Dui had to stay on the lead because there were cars around, and he likes to race them.
 We were even happy to get back in the car, because we were going HOME.
Bella is on the floor....her preferred travel position
After dinner, one of the kittens was in our backyard.
We chased it around and under plants until it went over the gate.
It's great to be home.
Tomorrow we start a 3-day weekend--3 days at the river for us.
We hope you have a beautiful weekend lined up!

While the cat's away.....

the mice will play.
We know you've heard that one.
what about when the dogs are away
the C A T will play.

We're still in the lock-up (while HER eye heals)
AND this happened yesterday afternoon!
At OUR side door.

Of course, she ran off when she saw the camera.

We think it is Sibling.  T'Abby is darker.

Also, another Woodchopping event from the show:
Woodchopping is an International Event

The tall posts in the background is another competition.  The competitors must cut a V in the large pole, insert a slat, climb on, another cut, climb on the slat, cut half the log on top, climb down removing the slats and repeat for the other side.

The Dubbo Show--

that we dogs were once again excluded from.
(The show is like a county fair, we think.)
This sheep was watching the judging.
 One of the high schools bulls, shown by a student, being judged. 
 Agriculture is taught in high school.

A woodchopping event!
If your sound is on, you can hear the competetors being counted in, according to their handicaps.
The fellow on the far right--obscured--was last to start and first to finish!

Segment of sheep dog competition.

Shearing competition.
This competition was a team event.
Sheep shorn,
Fleece tidied up...getting the daggy bits off,
rolled in one piece, baled and the area cleaned up.

Of course there were also flower, chickens,  rabbits, birds, art, photographs, vegetable, fleece, baked goods, jams and craft competitions.
As well as rides, sideshow alley, businesses showing their wares,
show jumping, bands, magicians, puppet shows, baby farm animals....etc.
Always lots to see, we hear, as we NEVER get to go--
though we'd help clean up all the food stuff dropped.
