The Shock! The Horror! They had fun without me!

Well, all I can say is that I am not amused!

The other day, my family went out to some wonderful place that obviously had oodles of interesting animals to chase, things to see and new and exciting smells to smell (they thought I wouldn't know, but I could tell from their clothes when they got home, plus heres the photographic evidence) and they left me at home!

Now mum wants to show you all some photos of their big adventure without me, how rude is she?


I like cats! I'm good with cats!
I would have played with this one gently so I didn't hurt it!



And just look at these African Painted Dogs - they had a big area to run around in and I would have loved to play chasey and bitey face with them!



These little creatures are so cute, they're called Meerkats - like I said I like cats...
maybe MeeRkat stands for Me chase afteR cat?

That would have been fun;)



Ok, I'm an honest kind of guy, so I'll admit this thing looks a bit freaky -
I mean where is its FUR? I don't think I would have played with him.



Now, these two baboons on the otherhand,
well I'm always ready for a game of bitey-face!



Not so sure about this fella either (I think its the no-fur thing),
but I don't think he would have minded me having a swim in his pool!

I could have caught some of those fish - I like fish for dinner!




I know all about kangaroos, we get them in our backyard. I even chased two down the hill and through the bush the other day. Come to think about it, mum and dad wern't to happy about that. They were happy that I came back though (after five minutes or so when I lost sight of 'roos). Maybe that's why the family didn't take me on this big adventure?



Now this creature is a little Numbat (which apparently is very rare and endangered Australian native species), and I am sure that I could have bought it home to live happily in my toy box with my lambies. I love soft toys and I am very gentle with them.

Well, except for the ones that have sticky-out bits. I don't like sticky-out bits on my soft toys. That would be why my big eyed fish and lobster are now blind. And why Shrek is now deaf. Oh, and both my lambies don't have horns anymore. But I was very gentle and only removed the sticky-out bits that I didn't like (I'm a Border Collie - I'm very precise about these things). Although one of Shreks ears and one of lambies horns tasted pretty good so I did eat them, and no mum wasn't happy about that.

I think if I was allowed to have this Numbat toy, I would have to very gentley remove those ears - they stick out too much! Maybe thats why they didn't take me on this great adventure!




I don't think I have ever seen something that looks quite like this.
But I reckon it probably tastes like chicken.
I love chicken.

Mum would like to show you some more of her photos, but I'm saying that this is *MY* blog and enough is enough. Its bad enough they left me at home and went and had this great adventure at the Zoo without me!

But, if you really want to see more of mum's photos, you can see them in her Flickr.com Gallery and she will be adding more photos soon. You can even see more photos of me over there as well!

Now I think its about time Mum got off the computer and took me for a swim!

Woofs and wags and make sure your family takes you out for some FUN!

Those animals are beautiful, especially the painted doggy! Mom says she's never seen the likes of him before!

He he he, Peanut, make sure your mum keeps looking out for a new photo that my mum just took a few minutes ago. You might get an even bigger laugh:)

Amber-Mae, I think those pink bottoms are funny too!

Mack, my mum loves those painted dogs too (I'm not quite sure if I am happy about that!), but as long as they stay at the zoo, they can't be that bad (although I would still like to go play at their house!)
