Crikey ... what a day!! First off THE VET!! Well that was pretty good ... Peter wasn't there ... he always sticks things in me .... Jackie was there .... I LOVE Jackie!! She took those horrible stitch things (that PETER put in me) out and she didn't hurt me, not even one little bit and then she gave me some dried liver ... YUM!!!!!!! Then we went home and I had a nice, although quiet day. It was VERY hot again so I didn't mind the quiet day. Around 4.30pm Mum and Dad asked me if I would like to go to the beach. Are they mad? Did they HAVE to ask????? I was in that car so fast you wouldn't believe. I didn't have to be picked up and put in like someone I know. Then off to the beach. OMD I was sooooooo happy. Now just to get the picture straight we ALWAYS go to the beach early in the morning cause that's when ALL my mates are there. We do go most afternoons but there's always different pups and peoples in the arvos and not so many of MY mates so I don't usually run around all that much then. But, Hey ... I hadn't been for 10 days so I was just happy to play with ANYONE!! Now first up all was well. Mum let me off the lead and I ran straight for a cute little oodle of some sort. Good value ... he liked to run. We ran and ran (he couldn't catch me)and ended up in the ocean when we got too hot. Fun!!!!! BUT then I spotted a big white greyhound (or so I thought) at the other end of the beach and I was off. Ran the full length of the beach at breakneck speed to get to him and when I did he started to chase me. Crikey ... he was FAST ... I couldn't get away and he was HOOOOOOOOOOGE and he had a metal cage on his mouth. He kept bumping me with the metal cage and I was SCARED!!!!!!!! I ran to Mum and that big white thing nearly knocked Mum over. She had to dodge real quick to get out of his way. I ran to Dad and that big white thing nearly knocked Dad over. He had to dodge real quick to get out of his way. Crikey ..... HELP!!!!!!
I finally got to Dad and he grabbed me real quick and the big white thing came to a standstill. Fair dinkum ... I was sooooooo relieved and soooooooooo exhausted. I was panting and panting and panting!!!!!! The big white things owner came over to Mum and she was so happy and she thanked Mum for exercising her dog. Fair dinkum .... what sort of a nut case was she .... I exercised her stupid dog not Mum. Turns out it wasn't a greyhound after all. I LIKE greyhounds. They are really gentle and nice dogs but this one was a ?/greyhound and I know what the ? was. Great Dane, I reckon. It was humungous and that cage thing on it's mouth hurt when it bumped me. Scary scary scary!!!!!
THEN ... we hurry off as far away from that dog as we could possible get and I calmed down and was just minding my own business when a REAL nice lady walked past and I went over and jumped on her. I've never jumped on anyone before but hey ... I hadn't been to the beach for 10 whole days. She was real nice and didn't mind. She just petted me and said how beautiful I was. THEN ... I jumped on another lady .... she was nice too and just petted me and told me how nice I was. Mum and Dad decided to take me home. After all I had already had some very big runs and that was more than I needed for one day. Mum was just about to put my lead on when I spotted a Man and Lady with 3 LWF's ( that's Aussie speak for LWD's ... Little white fluffies) that I had seen earlier but didn't get to play with because the big greyhound thing had me otherwise occupied and off I went to play. BAD MOVE, Charlie!!!!!!!!! The man was MEAN!!!!!! The 3 LWF's were MEAN. They barked and snapped at me. You should have seen their teeth. As sharp as pine needles and all over their mouths and big snarly looking faces ..... OMD!!!!! The man yelled at Mum and Dad and told them to put me on a lead. Said I was out of control ..... ME ... out of control!!!!!! Fair dinkum .... I was top of the class at my obedience classes. Out of control, indeed!!!!!!! Who did he think he was. Well Mum and Dad saw red but didn't say anything to him. Just called me back and sat me at their feet where I wanted to be anyway. I didn't want to be anywhere near that MEAN man or his MEAN LWF's. Mum and Dad didn't put me on my lead though. They knew I wasn't out of control and they weren't going to listen to any mean old man. No WAY!!! But after he left the beach so did we. That was enough for anyone in one day.
When we got home I was exhausted .... no naughtiness at home from me ... I just hopped up onto my couch and slept like a baby. Crikey I love the beach ... but it will be good to get back to my morning mates. Those arvo blokes are a bit much.
That night Mum got a text from my 2 legged sister to say she had fixed my blog page up for me the way I wanted it. I wanted my picture on my background not those millions of whippet blokes that she put on earlier for me. When I looked at it I loved it but ... Crikey ... the background looked just like my mate Mr JF, Sir's page. How did that happen???? We could be twins or something .... Sorry Mr. JF Sir, I can get her to change it when she has time again if you would like. She didn't know your page was the same ... she was just trying to give me what I wanted. My Secretary, Mum would change it if she could but ... crikey ... you all know how hopeless she is on the computer.
OMD WHAT A DAY!!!!!!!!
Wanna run ... Love, Charlie.
