The story starts on Monday arvo. Dad is on sick leave cause he had a knee operation. He's fine and only limps a little but that should soon be gone and his old knee will be back to, well, being an old knee, but without the limp hehe.
Anyhoo we decide to go for our usual walk along the Summer Track, which in winter can be a little muddy, darn cold but fun all the same. Now, if you want to know who is the goodie two shoes in the family, look no further than Rory. Oh yes, never leaves Mum's side while walking, unless he's alongside Dad. Sheesh, that boy can be trying. It's hard to talk him into any mischief.
Well my plan was prepared well in advance. I had been thinking and thinking about what I could do to take mum's mind off things and cheer her up. Then it came to me. Aha. Yes. That's it. Let the photo show begin and I will explain it all.
Here we are, beginning of the walk, me of course on lead and Goodie Two Shoes, off lead.
Practicing my sit and stay.
With mum, she didn't have a clue, hehe.
Come on Goodie, you don't have to wait for mum all the time.
My goat impersonation.
Please Dad, may I go off lead too?
I promise to be good!
Dad's goat impersonation hehe.
Yes mum, I'm coming. Nothing to worry about here.
Hey Rory, keep them occupied for a minute will ya.
Hey mum, what's that over in the paddock?
S T E L L A ! ! ! !
get back here you little ratbag!
Well, sorry folks but there is no photos of the next bit. I had a good old run with the sheep. Yes, I am a sheep addict. I knew it would take mum's mind off things and I was right. She ran along, calling my name and looking very animated. I knew it was definitely the right thing to do. Anyhoo, I didn't want to cause too much trouble and in less than 45 seconds I was back. The sheep had good fun too, baaing, running and baaing some more. Only thing was, out came the lead again. Rats. Oh well, it was worth it mates.
Yeah, I know, I shouldn't do it, but it was for a worthy cause.
I'd do anything for my mum, even be naughty.
If I'm on lead, I don't even look at the bloomin sheep, but let me off and yippee, here I come.
Here's the fallen down tree.
Its really huge and has a hole through it. Cool.
Well, that's it mates. I can't help myself, if there are sheep around, well, I just like to have a run with them. Maybe I'm part sheepdog?
Here's a last photo of mum and Rory.
He's back on lead too now. Nearly home and a bit more traffic around.
Hope your week has been fine so far.
Stella, Sheep Addict, signing off.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
