Our Family - Jinx the dog.

Howdy Everybuddy, well as usual mum always gets her own way.  Sigh.  There she was blah blah blahing about how we all had to get on, no barking, snarling, fighting and stuffs. We are family now and family stick together, look after each other,  eat our food together and especially love each other.

At first we wondered who the heck this new doggie was coming to visit with Tyler.  We had some barks through the door and Jinx barked back.  She's a tough old girl.  Most farm dogs are I suppose and there was no way I was taking things too far.   I had to think of her age, her delicate time of life and her sweet gentle face.  I knew in my heart of hearts, that yes, she could give me a bloomin good thrashing if it came to push and shove.  Yes folks, I, Stella the Bossy, know I am really a chicken at heart.  Bok bok bok, hehehe.  Who cares anyway, I have a new cousin and life is GOOD.

We went to the Polo Cross oval to say howdy.  This is what I thought when I realised a 12 year old red kelpie could outrun me for the tennis ball.  Humiliated I was I tell ya. 

Of course, when Rory went to the oval mum forgot to take the camera but he and Jinx were just fine.  We went at separate times to make it easier to say howdy.

Today Laura and Lisa are both working so mum says we are having a get together.  She says no funny business anyone and even if we let out a small yip or teeny tiny bark, she YELLS at us and we all pee ourselves just a little hehe.

Here is our first photo together and mum says we were all fabo and should be proud of ourselves.  Paws crossed it will continue like this but mum thinks we are all doing fine.

Anyhoo Jinx, we love ya old girl.  Hope everybuddy has had a good weekend.  See ya soon.

No worries, and love, Stella, Rory, Tyler and Jinx



  1. Oh well done you two...well, well done!! We have yet to meet our new cousin Ben but having read this post we are hoping we will be as well behaved & welcoming as you have been with Jinx.

    Have a grrreat Sunday,
    Wally & Sammy

  2. You are doing so well guys - it's always a bit scary letting a new dog join the pack but Jinx looks a sweet old girl and I'm sure you'll soon be best buddies - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  3. Nice one guys. Looks like you have given Jinx a nice welcome. Well done. Remember the old ones can teach you a thing or two. Have a super Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Nice job on meeting Jinx. We're so glad to hear that there weren't any scuffles happening around there. I'm sure she is nervous too about the whole thing, so a little respect can go a long way. We LOVE the group picture!

  6. Hello Jinx! We are hoping to add a third Golden and our worry is Monty. Half the time he is okay, but then once in a while he isn't happy with a new friend at all. Sigh...

  17. You have to know your limits and it sounds like Jinx is pretty rough trade. You just give her space and everything will be fine. Boss lady mom will keep everybody in line.


  18. Well, ignore my email, I finally figured out how to make comments. Duhhhhh. We are so proud of you for letting Jinx come and live with you. I am sure she will fit in perfectly in time. You are all so patient.

  31. What a good looking crew you have there. Jinx is adorable and I'm so glad you're all getting along so well.

    (Are you sticking your tongue out at us in that first picture, Stella? Ha! You're awfully cute.)

  32. Hi! We're so glad that all of you are getting along so well. That's one of about three rules in our house too - get along with each other! The four of you look fantastic together, I'm thinking there were maybe some treats involved?

    Watch out for that Australian Kelpie, she'll be a fast one but I am sure she'll also be a lot of fun too.

  33. I'm sure your Mum will keep you all happily under control! But, really, the more of you to play together, the happier everyone should be!

    xoxo Marjie
