It has been one of those weeks… Five dead cane toads in the garden, a dead lizard on the bottom of the pool and then there was the piece de resistance… I had received a whiff of ‘dead thing’ on … Continue reading
We are lucky to have spectacular sunsets here in Darwin. During the wet season the skies are heavy with dramatic monsoon clouds and in the dry season the smoke from bush fires creates the most beautiful hazy colours. Capturing a … Continue reading
Apparently I don’t like change… would that make me conservative? I think I’d rather be inflexible. Yes, I’m inflexible. A would-be luddite. Unable to cope when Google Reader disappears. It didn’t irk me, even a little, when I read that … Continue reading
I have enough animals. If I were to get any more animals children would start throwing rocks at my car. I might even start to smell like the crazy cat lady (assuming I don’t already). I don’t need any more … Continue reading
Today’s mischief wasn’t caused by any permanent occupants of Flo’s house, but by unwanted house guests. I have known there’s been a rat in the storeroom for several weeks. It was nibbling away at the lambs’ ears I had for … Continue reading
I didn’t have a post ready for today. I wasn’t bothered. I was going to leave it. Then, an hour ago, I found Elsie eating this outside on her bed. In case you’re wondering what it is, it’s what’s left … Continue reading
What??? Another post that hasn’t really got anything to do with les animaux? Unbeflippinglievable. Call the RSPCA. Things I’ve remembered this week… This pic from here Housework is actually easier/close to enjoyable while listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd &Blondie. 🙂 I … Continue reading
[NOTE 15-5-2013 I have noticed a lot of hits on this post over the last few days. Please note that unfortunately the link to reading more about Dion Beasley and to the Nyinkka Nyunyu Arts and Cultural Centre are no … Continue reading
This week we’ve been off galavanting to view some of the amazing places and things the Northern Territory planet has to offer. This week we were down in the Katherine region, which is about 3 hours drive south of Darwin. … Continue reading
Exciting news! Last year, one of our gang members set off to move to another state. It was supposed to be a permanent move… after all it was a LONG drive and not one you’d want to repeat. BUT… today … Continue reading
Today was the RSPCA Million Paws Walk. It’s a national event with each state and territory organising their own events where dog owners come together for a group dog-walking session to raise money for the RSPCA. Darwin is such a … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading
It’s our turn to go visiting! This time we’ve jetted off to Western Australia to stay with friends and with Flo’s very first playmate, Mackie Boomba. We left at mid-day, which isn’t ideal because it means travelling in the heat, … Continue reading
It’s been a very wet week… a monsoonal low hovered above us for the first part of the week, threatening to develop into a cyclone, so work was cancelled on Wednesday. Thankfully the tropical low came to nothing but I … Continue reading

I’ve bitten the bullet and begun to move Flo off her dog biscuits and on to a raw diet. Although I’m confident that it’s not her food that is causing her skin spots, I am hoping that this diet might … Continue reading
This week, Flo went to doggy daycare for the first time. Once a month the garden rubbish is collected and up until now I’ve always taken Flo to a friend’s house so that she didn’t either escape or scare the … Continue reading
