Dances With Bubbles

Hai Doggies!

I have a new hobby, its called Dancing with Bubbles and its almost as much fun as chasing sheepz.

This is me in the backyard, going to investigate what Uncle AJ was up to.

I soon found out that he had BUBBLES and so I started to dance!!!

Doing the Twist

And the Foxtrot

Then the Alligator

Next I tried the Hokey put your right paw in...

Then I finished up with a little bit of Salsa!

Now I am sure that other pups out there Dance with Bubbles as well, how about you show your photos as well?

Just call us Cone heads

Well Hai!

I know its been a long time since my last post, what can I say, Mum has been busy and can't seem to fit her role as my secretary into her busy schedule. Ok, well that's not completely true, she has been sick as well as busy, but mum and dad still manage to have fun and play with us, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much.

But I did want to tell you all about something really awful that happened to Trinity and me way back in June before my Birthday, and it was all Mum's fault so I wanted to show you the photographic evidence. Anyway, one morning Mum got us up really early and we went in the car (I love the car, but Trinity hates it). I thought we were going somewhere real fun, but we ended up at the vets - Mum left both of us there all day for something called spey and neutering and Trini had her hernia fixed as well.

I'm not quite sure what all that means, other than the vet people made me go to sleep and when I woke up I had this bucket on my head and I was in so much pain I couldn't walk properly! Trinity had a bucket on her head as well, so I know how stupid I must have looked.

It was all mum's fault, she took us and left us there. Then when we got home that night mum got the camera out and took photos which wasn't very nice, but seeing as she took them, I guess I better show you all.

As you can see, me and Trinity were not very happy. I made sure Mum knew I was mad at her! I ignored her for the first week - except I had to make sure she stayed in the room with me, and that she stayed up looking after me for the first few nights. Then I let her sleep in the lounge room with me so that I could lean up against her so I could sleep. I was in so much pain and I couldn't walk, or lay down or get comfortable - it was horrible!

Apparently my surgery was complicated and I had to have three big cuts, and the vet had to get his hands right inside my tummy to fix things up, which is why I was so sore! Mum looked after me though I decided to forgive her for taking me to the vets.

As soon as we were better, Mum and Dad took us out for a ride in the car, and we have done lots of other fun things since then that I really want to tell you about, so hopefully Mum will have a bit more time to keep up to date with my blog!

Butt sniffs and Tailwags for now!

Happy 1st Birthday Taj!

Ok well I know I havn't been a good secretary and scribe because I havn't updated Taj's blog for simply forever, but things have been rather hectic and I have really good reasons for not having the time. I do promise to backtrack a bit though with some photos and things that we have done, but thought I had better mark the occasion as today is Taj's first Birthday!

We have PRESENTS!!!!!


K, nuff with the stupid hat, gimme the treat now!

I like these toys:) Can I kill them?

Oh Boy. Mother, I better get cake for doing this!

Yeah Baby! We have CAKE!


By for now

(Tia, Taj and Trinity's Mum)

A Touching Story

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the
scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.
He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead
for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.
After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of
the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was
broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.
When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch
that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate
looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he
got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.
When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me, where are we?"
"This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.
"Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the man asked.
"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought
right up."
The man gestured, and the gate began to open.
"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come in, too?" the traveler
"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."
The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and
continued the way he had been going with his dog.
After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to
a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never
been closed. There was no fence.
As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree
and reading a book.
"Excuse me!" he called to the man. "Do you have any water?"
"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in."
"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the dog.
"There should be a bowl by the pump."
They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned
hand pump with a bowl beside it.
The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, and
then he gave some to the dog.
When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was
standing by the tree.
"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.
"This is Heaven," he answered.
"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The man down the road said
that was Heaven, too."
"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope.
That's hell."
"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?"
"No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave
their best friends behind."
