Very Good Girl hehehe.

Hi Everybuddy, today I went on my first big walk with mum and dad.  I have been bossing poor little Rory around cause mum says I am getting hormonal (whatever that means).  I don't want to be a mean bean but its kinda fun.  

Anyhoo, Mum says I must 'burn off some energy' so I was allowed to go with them on the biggest walk I have ever been on.  It was a piece of cake.  Of course mum forgot the camera but believe me, I was fantastic.  Up hills, down dales and everywhere inbetween.  I had a ball.  

Here are some photos of yesterday when Tyler went with mum and dad.  He was allowed 'off lead' cause it was very cool weather.  Today when I went I had to be 'on lead' cause it was much warmer and mum and dad saw their first brown snake of the season.  He was a biggie too.  Made mum's heart go boom boom boom.
This tree fell down after we had a minor earthquake the other night.

Now I know I can go on 'the big walk' with mum and dad all the time.  Hurray.   When we came home I was the best dog ever.  Mum said I was a VERY GOOD GIRL.  I said, of course I was.  Aren't I always.

Here are a couple of photos just for fun.

Tyler  - 'The Joker'

Stella - 'The Rascal'

Rory - 'The Dreamer' 

We also went for a small walk with Rory to our local Deli for a coffee with mum, dad, Paul, Laura, her boyfriend Paul, and James.  We were VERY GOOD too.  Rory and I watched everyone walk by and had some pats.  Note Dad's trousers.  By the end of the coffee they had lots and lots of slobber hehehe. Good one Rory.

After that tiny little walk Rory was a tired boy.  Gosh it only took 10 minutes to get there.  I love my plonky brother.

 Rory is not allowed to sit on the couch so he thought he would see how  comfy the footrest was.

 Me looking fabulous. Check out my bendy legs.

So we have had a very good weekend which mum says is very good.  She says "Stella, its good to be good"  Blah blah blah.  Dear old mum, she doesn't know it, but me and Rory always want to please her, we just like to keep her on her toes with a little mischief here and there hehehe.  

Well that's it for now.  Bye.  No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  5. It sounds like your stamina is gettin' better Stella - I used to go on walks as a pup then dad had to carry me home because I exhausted myself!!

    Stay away from those brown snakes!!!

    I liked your walk and I was very happy to see that your humans are starting taking you all out to cafes! I am sure they could not drink anything in peace... Lots and lots of people must have stopped by!!!!

  8. What a super fun weekend you all have had! And Stella! What a good girl to get to go on a big dog hike!! We got to go on a nice hike today after it stopped raining. Our snakes have gone to bed we think. Gizmo once got bitten by a rattlesnake. He was always full of mischief, but that was scary! His leg swelled up SO much and he was in SO much pain. Luckily no liver damage... So be careful, Stella!!

    Rottie Kisses,

  13. Hi Stella and Rory, such busy lives you both have. Walks and good times with your mum and dad. Life doesn't get too much better than that. Watch out for the big snakes :o

  14. There've been a few snake sightings and bitings around here too. We can only go off-lead very early in the morning. Snakes really cramp our styles.

    sounds like had some quality walks this weekend.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  15. Big walks are the best fun!

  19. hehehe Rory... typical Dane. hehehe. Pretty soon he won't be able to fit up there!
    Watch out for snakes on your walks! I have yet to see one, and I hope I don't!

  20. I don't blame Mom for freaking out over the snake. I don't like them either. You sure are a pretty girl, Stella, and your little brother is getting bigger every day!

  21. Yikes, snakes! And so many Aussie snakes are poisonous! Does that mean you can't even run free in your yard once the snakes start coming out? Maybe we should send you a mongoose.

    AND you had an earthquake! Our grandpa just had one in Oklahoma [not known for its earthquakes] this weekend, and we had one here in August that shook our house. Maybe the Earth is trying to shake all of us up, or off, or something.

    Won't be long before Rory will be big enough to go on the Big Dog walks, too. In fact, once he's grown, he could learn to run along side a bicycle; mama used to do that with her Danes because that was the only way she could tire them out.

  22. We seened a snek this weekend and we thought they had all gone away fur the winter. That snek lived where they had 10 inches of snow from the freak snow storm last weekend and he woz still out. Silly snek! Or haunted snek?

  23. That sounds like an awesome walk, all except for the big brown snake part. You be careful, please! I find venomous snakes to be much scarier than bears :)

    I love the photos "just for fun"!

  24. Nothing beats a great walk! Glad you had such fun...although the snakes sound a little off-putting. You "just for fun" shots made us chuckle!

  25. Stella we can't believe how fast you are growing up!

    Brilliant photos of you all.

  26. oh Stella – what wonderful pictures of your outings! :-) It's so great that you are doing so many different things – like the cafe training! My humans wish that they had done more of that with me when I was a pup. But yikes! Snakes!

    You look so beautiful in that last picture – just like a perfect little lady! :-) And as for Rory – (we just looked at your latest post as well) – he just seems to double in size every time we come to visit – ha ha! :-)
