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
I feel I should point out the following 10 things before you come to the conclusion of this post:- 1. I do not have to navigate my way through my house through artificial corridors of newspapers; 2. I don’t think … 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
Helloooooo! Apologies for the lack of posts. Miss Fab, her sidekick plus the two cats have been left in the care of Aunty M who is sending through regular updates and photos but I haven’t had time to sit down … Continue reading
Elsie at 7 weeks…. Elsie at 52 weeks… We spent a good chunk of the morning down at the dog park, which is one of her favourite places because she can just run and run and run. Elsie is exhausting. … Continue reading
Once we got home… We’re taking part in Blog Paws Wordless Wendesday Blog Hop. Click on the icon to join in.
Elsie has discovered how to nose the bedroom door open in the middle of the night. I leave it open a touch so that Fergus and George can come and go as they please. On Thursday night she nicked through … Continue reading
Flo Flo is feeling very abandoned at the moment; I keep going out and taking The Ritalin Kid but not her. Even though she gets something tasty before we go, this is the pathetic sight at the gate when we … Continue reading
When Flo finds George on her bed she (wisely) won’t go near it. Elsie has the stupidity foolishness innocence of youth on her side. She’ll learn.
This week has been a little on the scary side. Everything was normal with the House of Flo until Wednesday night. After a very normal piggy ear when I got home from work we had a very normal trip to … Continue reading
Tonight is the first night that Elsie hasn’t been confined to either a crate or pen overnight. It’s half past eleven. Here are some pics of the early part of the night… Five minutes in and Elsie’s bed is empty … Continue reading
Oh dear, oh dear. What a slack a**e! I have been suitably pulled up on a lack of bloggy movement by The Typist. As usual it is not the animals’ fault, they have given me plenty of laughs over the … Continue reading
Following on from Saturday’s post… we’ve just come back from the v-e-t where Elsie has had between 40ml – 50ml fluid drained off her wound site. This is with keeping her relatively quiet. The v-e-t has recommended sedatives. 😦 We’re … Continue reading
Despite feeling nervous about getting Elsie spayed it is not something that I would ever avoid. Living here where hunting pigs with dogs is popular and where, quite frankly, most of the people I’ve met who engage in the activity … Continue reading
Apologies for the poor quality – it was night, there was no flash, George and Elsie were squirming… I did my best! Elsie is at the v-e-t’s today being spayed. She’s not like Flo (as well we know) and didn’t … Continue reading
