What's down there?

What's down there?, originally uploaded by Wonder Westie.

When we were on our holiday, we stayed in a house that had a balcony that overlooked a big paddock - in that paddock, there were alpacas, ducks, turkeys (seriously, what is wrong with those creatuers - the noise out of them!!!!!), cows and a few sheep. I spent a considerable amount of time watching them - you can't tell it from this angle, but I'm actually have a staring competition with a cow. I won.

woof for now.

Look what I found on the beach

Look what I found!!, originally uploaded by Wonder Westie.

So, one day, while we were on my favourite beach while on our holidays, I discovered this - a washed up apple. Well, I'm quite fond of a piece of apple now and then (I eat around the skin though, which the Two Legged Ones find very amusing - I've no idea why, but well, two legged ones, generally, can be a bit of a mystery to us four legged ones!) but this one looked a bit off - I suppose after a while in the ocean I too would look a bit off!!! More stories of my adventures later!

Woof for now!

If you go down to the woods today .....

Into the light, originally uploaded by Wonder Westie.
There were so many adventures on my holiday down south, that I decided I should do separate posts, otherwise each post will be way toooo long and my paws will get tired, typing it all up ...... This was my daily afternoon adventure - a walk in the woods. It was great fun - the Two Legged Ones were more interested in the wildflowers (stunning, apparently) and the trees (awesome, apparently - to me, they are all the same!!) but well, you know me - I was more interested in the smells - and the woods were full of exciting smells - kangaroo smells, rabbit smells, frog smells, fox smells, other four legged ones smells. And, the most exciting thing - one afternoon, I saw a kangaroo.  Surprisingly, I was very well behaved and didn't run after it - the Two Legged Ones thought it was because I was finally learning all my manners (instead of just some of them!) but it was really because, well, kangaroos are huge - I'm not scared of anything (other than baths) and honestly, I wasn't scared (but again, close up, kangaroos are HUUUUUGE!!!) but I decided that, to paraphrase William Shakespeare (I quite like his works, you see), discretion was the better part of valour!

Stay tuned for more holiday photos and stories!

Woof for now!!!!!!

On my holidays

No limits, originally uploaded by Wonder Westie.

Well, we are back from our holiday (yes, the Two Legged Ones took me to my favourite beach Down Under - refer to earlier post!). I'll update you more later but for now, here is an action shot of me - I didn't realise quite how steep the drop was but well, hey, who cares, I was in a hurry. I am still recovering from a week of running, running, running, swimming, paddling, visits to wineries and, best of all, a chocolate lounge where dogs were catered for (no chocolate for me of course, but everyone made a fuss of me!). More later.

Woof for now.
