Hurrah! We’ve had almost no chewing ‘issues’ this week! OK, so there’s not that much left to chew. I rather foolishly left a box of new golf balls downstairs and came home to find them all removed firstly from the bigger box and then each from their individual boxes. Each little golf ball box had been carefully chewed to a thousand small pieces and liberally scattered amongst some chewed palm fronds on the lawn. The silver lining was she’d chosen a palm frond to chew also – a much better choice. Alas, those golf balls were just too tempting. Eight out of ten for restraint this week Miss Flo!
I’m trying the fabulous one on some glucosamine tablets – beef flavour – mmmm, yummy. She seems to quite like them but I’m not sure that they’re working yet. I think they need a bit of time. Her legs have been bothering her again so I think it’s time to make a decision about sending her to the orthopedic specialist when he’s in town next month. Perhaps he can review her (very expensive and quite lovely) x-rays.
Walks this week have been interesting – spangled drongos, red-tailed black cockatoos, a dingo (but not the one that stalked us previously) and some little red-backed fairy wrens. With a name like ‘spangled drongo’ you would be forgiven for expecting some astonishing, Dr Seuss-type creation of a bird with multicoloured head-plumage and long, elaborate tail feathers. Alas, it doesn’t live up to its name… I didn’t have my camera with me either time that I saw it, so I’m putting a link to it. When I’ve got some spare time, I might create my own version of what I think it SHOULD look like using Photoshop or something similar. 🙂
We’ve had two showers in the last fortnight which mean that the mozzies have all come out and can make our evening walk a little unpleasant unless we go out smothered in tropical strength repellent. Someone also needs to tell the March flies that it’s September!
