We’re home sweet home, happy and tired after a fantastic holiday over in Western Australia!
Flo and Mackie hadn’t seen each other since she was about 10 weeks old. At that point he was bigger than she was. The first time she saw him she ran under the car to hide; she hasn’t been able to fit under the car for a looooooooooong time! While their owners sat enjoying some of the local Margaret River produce (hic!) and swimming with dolphins in the ocean, Mackie and Flo ran each other ragged.
There was quite a bit of this….
and a lot of this…
The fabulous one is very much a tropical dog now, so there was a requirement for a little thermal assistance in the evenings so that Her Fabulousness could sleep without whimpering.
Flo didn’t get to see or do this, but I did and it was AMAZING!
We went out into the ocean with our snorkels and found ourselves surrounded by dolphins. There are FAR worse things that we could’ve been surrounded by in the ocean over there, so it was a great relief that the dorsal fins belonged to some friendly cetaceans! They came so close to us, it was a real treat.
Finally, we went a little further north and met up with Flo’s Grandad. He’s a handsome fellow, but his behaviour was decidedly inappropriate given their close relatedness!
Even though the pool has turned an unusual shade of brown and I’ve fished at least one dead lizard out of it, though there may well be more lurking in the depths – I’ll find out tomorrow when the pump and chlorine start to have an effect – we’re happy to be home with George and Fergus, who are probably wondering why Flo got a holiday and they got sent to the Cat Castle. Both have been very vocal since being picked up.
Miss Fab is clearly exhausted, there was not a lot of running around on our evening walk, and she’s now completely flaked out. A tired puppy is a good puppy.
