I managed, after much work, to escape the back yard today. The Tradies from Wednesday, had moved a huge heavy brick from in front of the gate and didnt put it back. It took much much pushing and wriggling until I managed to get out. Unfortunately I got busted when Mum saw me walking around in the front garden…….it was fun while freedom lasted. Ahhh the smell of kangaroo on the front lawn.
A bit of excitement today a tradie came to see me, and fix something to do with water. I remembered him from a previous visit. He likes staffies and gave me a pat…..
Mum gave me a Christmas present yesterday…….its a Santa. Dad keeps trying to take it from me. Hey give a guy a break. Today we visited Aunty Viv who I like visiting as she makes a big fuss of me.
Finally have Mum trained. I figured out she doesnt use the naughty whistle until I have had one bark. She reckons its because it takes her time to get outside, but I know better. Its one bark only allowed. Now someone wants to sort out the new dog at the back who just barks all the time. He needs to learn its one bark only allowed……
Its just over 1 year since mum and Dad adopted me. As a family we are doing well. They understand that going in the car is no.1 with me, followed by biscuit treats, pats, and after lunch naps with Mum.
Still dont like cats and had an unfortunate meeting with a bobtail lizard. Mum usually chases them away before i see them. I have had 1 caravan trip which , despite jumping out of the car with my harness on was fun. Lets hope the next year is also fun.
Today I had to stay in the car while Mum and Dad had a look at new chairs for him and me. They decided to buy me an “ice cream”. I had a nice crunchy thing and inside was yummy cold stuff. I could do that again………..Dad checked on Luca. He is doing good but needs another blood test to see if his kidneys have been affected. I have everything crossed he is ok.
Big news, my friend Luca, who visits me sometimes, has been bitten by a snake!!!. Mum has showen me photos of these long wriggly things and said they can kill me. Luca is doing ok but it was a close call. He had to have a needle put in him with anti venom to make him better. He is at the doggy doctor eating chicken now………..here is a photo of luca at our place
Today we went for a BIG drive today where I met the new baby in the family, baby Kayley. I sniffed new smells and gave her a kiss on the head…….
A new dog has moved into next door. I think his humans have also. He barks a lot and doesn’t seem to get the naughty whistle…..I wonder why. I havent been outside very much as it has been raining and windy. Luckily I got a short walk today but it started raining before we got home……. I don’t do rain very well.
I am not happy, yesterday I tried not to bark at passing dogs but one bark squeezed out and Mum used the naughty dog whistle.
Today I got all excited about going in the car until Dad opened my window and I got the wet stuff on my head. Dad had to have the window shut most of the time. Whats the point of going for a ride if I can’t have my head out the window.
