A Good Hit of Wildlife…

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

Elsie Turns One

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

Monday Mischief: A Puppy’s Midnight Adventures

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

Monday Mischief: George Gets His Own Back

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.

Can We Please Have Our Normal Back?

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

The Tyranny of Snot

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday – Quiet Schmiet

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

Just Keep Her Quiet, he said…

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

Monday Mischief – Spot The Dog

October to May is ‘stinger season’ here in Darwin.  Stingers are box jellyfish.  It’s a good time to stay out of the water because it is not a creature you want to meet.  Most of the time it’s not a … Continue reading

Monday Mischief – It Wisnae Me!

Elsie assures me she has no idea who dug about in all my carefully placed sand, but she thinks it might have been Flo.  Or George.  Or even Fergus. We’re taking part in the Monday Mischief Blog Hop hosted by … Continue reading

If You Could Have One Wish This Christmas…

Last year Fergus, George and Flo made Christmas lists.  To avoid clumsy repetition, this year we’re going for a Christmas wish. Fergus would like to be furball free. George wishes to be left alone.  Or for world peace.  Maybe both. … Continue reading
