GOD - WHAT A FORTNIGHT WE'VE HAD

Well I don't know where to start so I'll just say WOOF WOOF!

Firstly I am a Grand-Dog after the birth of Louise's baby boy, William James. That was a big deal but I haven't had much to do with him yet. They won't let dogs into the hospital for some reason. Anyway, I will get to know him and love him. I love Louise and I will love him.

Dad and I leave tomorrow for Birdsville where I have never been. I always know when we are going because Dad starts to get excited in a different way to usual. He packs the Toyota -  my kennel - and starts looking at Google maps. He thinks it's amazing how I know we are leaving but it's not - IT'S OBVIOUS.

Anyway, we have been doing heaps while we have been waiting for the baby to come. I got to go swimming at a Dog Beach. I love all the smells of fish and crabs and salt. I used to surf a lot when Dad and I lived near the beach and I miss it. Dad is going to take a video of me surfing to show everyone soon. In fact, since everyone likes my dog blog more than his, I am putting out an eBook called the SURFING DINGO. 

Almost every day we have gone to Centennial Park in the middle of Sydney. There are lakes and horses and bikes. I can't go off the lead in most places. That's fair enough because nothing can stop me chasing a horse. It gets everyone upset, including me and the horse.

The other great thing was walking around the city. People are not used to seeing a dingo in the city. They all make a very big fuss of me. I even got to be in the wedding photos of two Japanese people. Everyone laughed although I didn't understand what was so funny. 

So life just keeps going for us. We will be away for a month before we come back to launch my book called The Electronic Swagman. I will be doing a book pawing on the night.

Woof woof

Hey Tommie, I wish Mum would go on another long trip but she is always at work these days. Twice a week I go to a resort full of other dogs. I have a great time but am exhausted for the following 24 hrs. I have had all my wool shorn. To be honest it looks a bit girlie but is oh so much cooler. I have more energy than ever. I am a grand dog too. We stayed with our William for 5 mths while his Dad was in the Middle East. I love him very much but he doesn't do much that's interesting. He can't even walk. Humans are a very fragile race, don't you reckon? Gotta go Mum wants the 'puter. Cheers.

Woof Sinbad - Dad used to get me shorn as well but doesn't anymore - Not sure why. Maybe because he seems to like combing the hair our out of me which he does for hours sometimes. Not sure what fragile means but I think they are too smart for their own good sometimes and their males NEVER seem to grow up. Woof Woof Tommie

Hey Mate,Never heard of a Grand Dog, But sounds right to me. I am a Fairy Dog Mother mother so it must be sort of the same.My Mum and I did our first little trip up to the reef and !770 in our new little house. That is where Captain Cook some English man says he first landed and discovered Australia, which I find kind of weird seeing people were already living here, so it didn't need any discovering. We had a great time although Mum lost the keys to the house and my bones ( the ones I eat ) were inside.Mum is planning our next trip and asking me where I would like to go. Dog to dog do you have some advice where there are lots of really good smells and something apart from cats to chase. Talk soon, Fonzy Doggy

Woof Fonzy ... good to hear from you. The reef sounds fun. I remembered how much I loved the water these last few weeks in Sydney. But we are off again now. In Katoomba now and it is freezing.. woof woof Tommie

Tommie, do you think your dad's a bit dyslexic? Cos he spelt God the wrong way, you know backward like humans do - but it's all right because the good ones know that God is Dog spelt backwards.Gotta go, there's an invader at the gate I've gotta go and shout at. Ta ta for now. Ditto.

Hey Tommie, glad you are doing a book pawing on the night... what you going to use? Good Australian red earth clay? Just make sure it's nothing toxic... and have lots of swims in the sea after (but you know all that, don't you, cos you're smart)! ;) xx

Woof Tommie! Looks you've been having a grand time over the past few days. I think the real reason Dad wont give you the password to the internet is 'coz he's jealous that your blog stories are way more interesting than his are. Its sad really. You would think being in your presence would be enough. Never mind. We all love ya (and he does too!) and censorship or no censorship you faithful band of followers will happily tune in for the next exciting episode of you escapades. The Surfing Dingo - I can't wait for that to come out. Can I order an advance pawed copy??? Wishing you lots of exciting smells and encounters in and around Birdville. JB & Podhi

Wow a personal visit from the top dog himself! How lucky can a girl be... can't wait!!! I am glad that dad is massaging your ear. Most dogs do love to have their ears rubbed gently especially right at the base. JB
