We like our toys. In fact, Krissy and I personally think a hound can never have too many toys! 🙂
Sometimes we share ………
Sometimes we don’t ………
And sometimes it’s all too much ………
It’s been a strange old summer and autumn. New Zealand – including the Coromandel Peninsula – is still desperate for a good spell of rain, and we still have a total fire ban in place up here. The Coromandel isn’t usually short of a drop of rain, so we’re all feeling it right now…
We have had a quiet few months. Dad’s been a bit under the weather, and Mum is waiting to have a cataract operation on her eye – so she hasn’t been spending as much time on the computer as usual.
She has been taking lots of photos of little old Moi, though… Here are a few…
As you can see, I’ve been doing lots of zoomies.
But sometimes it’s nice just to settle down and have a good snooze…..
‘Bye for now….. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz 🙂
I promised my Weimaraner friend Easy (http://easyweimaraner.wordpress.com/) that I would post a picture of another Weimaraner we saw when we were doing some promotion for Greyhounds as Pets (GAP) New Zealand in October last year. So here is the photo – and a few more from the event, which was called “Brits at the Beach”. We had a wonderful time, and it was a fun day out.
I hope you’ve enjoyed visiting “Brits at the Beach” with me. Bye for now! 🙂
We had a couple of weeks of pretty warm weather just after Christmas, so Dad was walking me really early in the morning, and Mum didn’t take me out until late evening, as I got too hot.
I watched with some interest while Dad went to the trouble of patching the bottom of the inflatable paddling pool, as it sprang a small leak last summer. When Dad had finished, Mum heaved it out under the trees in the garden, then she half-filled it with water. Well, despite the fact that I did have a little paddle in it last summer, this year I completely refused to go anywhere near it… I have decided I don’t care much for paddling. Mum left it there for a while but she’s eventually conceded defeat, and she emptied it the other day.
Luckily for all of us, the weather has turned a wee bit cooler, and most days there is a nice cool breeze blowing, as well, so I go zoomies round the garden whenever I feel like it (usually before I go for a walk with Dad in the mornings).
There were some lovely people from Auckland holidaying in the village a few weeks ago. They had brought their two dogs with them, Bijou, the collie, and Flash, who, joy of joys! – was a greyhound! Here are some pictures of our play-date in the garden.
Here I am having a bit of a zoom round the garden this morning before my walk. I had a great time…
Off for my walk with Dad, now. Bye! 🙂
Mum’s having computer trouble. The desktop PC needs to go to the repairman, and the laptop wouldn’t boot last night and this morning. Dad’s had a look at it and managed to get it going for her, so we’re posting a few quick photos to let everyone know we’re still here! 🙂
Well, it’s been a weird sort of day. Now Mum says she has to get back to work, and I need to do some serious napping.
Bye for now… 🙂
Well, we’ve still been getting a fair bit of rain but then a couple of days ago — the sun came out! I think Mum was more shocked than I was. She got all excited and did a little dance then she took me to the beach.
Here are some photos she took: and, shock horror – I’m not in all of them!
When we were walking the beach, we saw this goldy-green thing gleaming in the distance. Mum couldn’t wait to get up close – though I was a bit more cautious. Look what we found!
‘Bye for now! 🙂
Well, as you can probably tell, it’s still been raining a lot. Here are a couple of photos Mum took last week.
Mum’s been making more grumbling noises about arks, and she showed me some pictures on the Internet. I thought they looked pretty neat – though I’m not sure about having to share with all those animals. Mum assured me I wouldn’t have to – though I thought that perhaps just a few houndy mates might be nice. Then we could go zoomies round and round the deck. (Um, perhaps I shouldn’t have mentioned that here.)
I would have to insist on a minimum of three settees, because I do like my comfort, and I like to be able to lounge on different vantage points during the day, depending on what sort of mood I’m in, and what Mum and Dad are up to. I like to keep an eye on them, you see.
The other day, there was what Mum called “a window of opportunity” in the weather i.e. it wasn’t currently pelting with rain, so we made it to the beach and back. WHOOPEE! The beach is still there! And there were lots of interesting new smells for me to sniff.
When we got to the bridge, I spotted some strange shapes coming towards us. They turned out to be horses. I must admit I freaked a little bit, and Mum took me to the other side of the road until they’d all gone past. Phew!
After we got back from our lovely walk to the beach, it rained really heavily again. But by then, I didn’t care. 🙂
‘Bye for now….. 🙂
