Yogharty Goodness


Muuuum, I don't know if I'll like it.
It smells funny.

Jeez, he's a big sook.  Mmmmm, yoghart.

Mum, leave his, I'll eat it in a minute.

Thanks mum, it does taste good.


No Stella, you can't finish mine off.

For a fun time, eat yoghart. 

No worries, and love, Stella (who loves yoghart), 
and Rory (who eats yoghart if mum holds the container), 
and Penny (who eats yoghart all by herself, not like her big sooky la la, mum's boy, brother).

Penny saves the day, Rory's walk and RIP Daisy

Howdy Everybuddy.  We had some excitement the other day.  Mum's in the shower and sissy comes banging on the door, freaking out cause there is a mouse in the toilet.  Well, not actually swimming in the toilet but in the room itself.  Mum yells out, "what did you do?" and sissy says "I shut the door and locked it in there".  I could hear mum sigh from the lounge room hehe.

She gets out of the shower (no rest for the wicked we say), gets dressed and peeps through a crack in the doorway to the toilet.  Yep.  Sure enough, there he is hiding behind the toilet roll holder.  Mum is in a fluster, wondering how she can get it out.  Now for any mousey bloggers out there, you'd better not read any more cause it gets nasty.  

Mum gets a mouse trap out, spreads some peanut paste on it and slides it into the toilet.  The trouble is, how long can we wait for mousey to take the bait?   Mum realises time is short, she has to work and drastic measures are needed.  

When there's something strange, 
in your neighbourhood, 
who ya gonna call??   
No, no, no, not the ghostbusters.  It's Penny the Magnificant Mouser.   Mum gets Penny, who as a 14 year old has quite the experience of catching mice, opens the toilet door, chucks her in and slams the door shut.  She yells at sissy to open the door to outside, waits one minute and opens the door.  Penny of course has poor mousey in her mouth, runs straight outside and well, end of story for mousey. 

Anyhoo two minutes later, Penny races back inside, runs for the toilet and starts looking around for more.  No luck we're happy to say.  Just the one this time.  

So, even though Penny is pretty old, she's still got it.  Once our Dad saw her eat a mouse and the tail was still wriggling!!  Ooops, sorry, hope no one was eating breakfast.  

Did someone say mouse??

Mates, here's another video of me walking.  Mum was trying to do some obedience but she's hopeless cause she hasn't done any for a while.  You can see my leggie is still a bit wonky but the other day I actually sort of galloped at the oval and mum and dad were happy.  I still have some trouble getting up at times, sometimes my leg just flips out from under me, but all in all, I'm doing pretty darn good.

 Rory's walk (watch here)

Well mates, that's about it.  Love the ones you're with.  
No worries, and slobber, Rory, Stella, and Penny.

We have just heard that a dear friend, Daisy
has left for the Rainbow Bridge.  Run fast, run free sweet girl.

Tuesday Tyler - He's gone ratty.

Howdy Mates, we've been taking things easy here.  Mum and Dad went away for a couple of days and left us home with the family.  That was fine by us.  They went to stay with our sissy and Tyler at a beach house.

Tyler had a great time.
This is him in the car. 

On the way to the Vet.  

Yep, our cousin thought eating a snack of Rat Bait was a good idea.  Bad idea Tyler, bad idea.  After an emergency dash of 190 kms (118 miles) to the nearest vet, he had the fun experience of having an injection to make him vomit, then tablets for the next 28 days and two blood tests over the next month to make sure his blood is clotting properly.  He seems fine with no ill effects.  Phew.  The lady who owned the beach house (and is a good friend of our sissy) did not know a relative of hers had put bait out.   

Mum says she will be buying hair colour in bulk from now on!

When they all arrived home the heat was terrible so we just lolled around the house and took things easy.

No one wanted to play ball.

I practiced my "leave it" while watching Penny eat.  Sigh.  
Her food smells so much better than ours.

Well, that's all for now folks.  Keep cool or warm wherever you are.
See ya soon. 
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
