Bushfire update - all good here.

Howdy Mates.  We are still all ok.  One more day of extreme heat tomorrow with thunder and lightning predicted which is a great concern due to lightning strikes starting more fires or starting up old ones.  Thursday and Friday are possible rain so keep your paws crossed for that.  If you are interested below is a link to footage from the fires.  The town of Gumeracha which is shown in parts of the video is 10 km from us and the fire front moved to within 5 km of our town.  There has been no loss of life and this is absolutely amazing but there has been many tragic stories of animal loss.

We have had extra fire fighters from New South Wales and Victoria sent over to help. When mum was at a meeting on Sunday evening and the trucks drove down our main street, everyone cheered and waved to them.  This has brought out the very best in people with everyone rallying around to help, however they can, in whatever way they can.  We are proud and thankful to all involved.  

Rory is back to the vet tomorrow to check his foot.  It is slightly better.  His stitches have come out all bar one but it doesn't look so, well, holey in the side of his toe.  

We are determined that 2015 is going to be a good year even though it has started out on a wobbly note.  We promise to post GOOD TIMES and FUN TIMES during the year!! 
 Here is Stellie, snoopervising Penny eating her food.

Me sleeping cause it's what I love to do (apart from eating my feet).

Stellie sleeping cause she's lazy, bwahahahaha.

Well mates, that's it from us.  Tomorrow is mum's day off.   I Rory, am going to sit on mum's feet till she visits a few of our furriends in Blogville.

Take care mates.

NO WORRIES and  SLOBBERY LOVE, Rory and Stella


  1. So pleased you're safe guys. And it's heartening to hear that the crisis has brought out the best in everyone. Now Rory, you get yourself into position on Moms foot. It might not do any harm even to chew it for a little, rather than your own, that way she'll surely pay attention and help you socialise with your Blogville pals.

It really brought that town together big time. Stay safe!!!!!!! We are thinking of you all!!
