Swimming at Bayview

I used to be terrified of water but over Christmas my mom and dad took me to Bayview Park where at least 40 dogs and their families were cavorting in the water so I went in to try it.
This is me bravely swimming out to my dad, I wish he wouldn't go QUITE so far out, I am still very nervous.

Best Friend Big Iggi

This is Iggi, the next door neighbour's dog I mentioned in a Jan 2012 post.  He has GROWN and now he chases me through the bushes with his master's newspaper in his mouth!

Chilworth Restored to Public Use

The M2 people have finished working under the viaducts of Chilworth Recreation Reserve, and built a really nice wooden bridge over the creek, and lined the sides of the creek with big boulders, great fun (for a dog) to climb over.  I am now very happy to be able to go on long walks north and south of the M2 in this lovely park!  I have met lots of nice dogs in the park, and several rather scary Bush Turkeys!  Fortunately those strange looking birds seem to be more scared of me than I am of them!

Blind Replacement

This was what I did to the blinds in the front bedroom, three years ago.  Master thinks I got caught in the blinds and panicked, but in fact I just found the thin sheets of pine tasty and crunchy.  They had someone in measuring up for new blinds yesterday, I hope they go for the same type.  I haven't really done anything to earn reproach recently, and maybe they think I am getting soft!

Battle Scars

It's not easy to be dignified with your head in a bucket!  This is me in the Ray White Beecroft office after I had an operation on my knee.
And a few weeks later I blew a blood vessel in my ear and had to go back to wearing the bucket!

A Weekend to Remember

I've just spent the weekend on a houseboat on the Hawkesbury! I confess I found it pretty nerve-wracking, all that water all around us, and sometimes the boat moved!
Scary stuff walking out onto what they told me was the poop deck, although I didn't feel up to using it, far too public. Instead we had to Go Ashore three times a day in this tiny little corracle called a Tinnie! I called it the Wee Boat.

More Restrictions!

Master took me to a house he was examining with the owner, leaving me to roam the gardens while they went down into the basement. I went to see what they were doing, it was really damp and creepy, I loved it. But the owner doesn't like dogs so Master told me to go out. As always I obeyed, then after a couple of minutes I went back in. Master took me out, put me on my lead, and tied me to a railing. He said stay, so I did, until I had eaten through my lead, then I went back in with a little bit of my lead hanging from my collar. That basement is really a creepy place! However Master wasn't pleased to see me again, so I spent the rest of the visit locked in the car. Back home, mom thought I looked cute with my little dangling lead!
Anyway now Master has bought me a nice shiny metal chain link lead! Not even my friend Mia the huge alsatian has one of those! Gives me Bragging Rights!
