It's me ...... Charlie!!!!!! Crikey ..... you haven't forgotten me have you????? Mum and Dad are back. As if I care!! Fair dinkum that was a looooooooong holiday. What were they thinking?? They reckon they had a real good time. I don't think they thought about me at all. I thought about them EVERY
day!! I missed them .... big time!! I wasn't going to let THEM
know that though but I couldn't help myself. I jumped all over them when I first saw them but I finally got my act together and went and sat in my bed and ignored them while they had a big talk to Charmaine. I like Charmaine and Peter lots and they have a border collie who was real good value. We played together all the time and Peter and Charmaine looked after me like a fighting cock but I just wanted my Mum and Dad. You know how I said I wasn't going to eat while they were gone??? Well ..... I did a pretty good job of starving myself. You should see me. Mum reckons I look like that bag of bones I said I was going to be. I lost a whole kilo in weight. Poor Charmaine was beside herself trying to get me to eat. She cooked me chicken breasts all the time because that was all I would eat. I tried to give them a miss too, but who can resist lightly poached chicken breasts. Certainly not me. Anyway after their chat to Charmaine, Mum and Dad packed up my things and we headed out to the car. I tried not to show how happy I was but I did jump up and hop in my crate awful quick. I didn't even look for the treat I usually get. I just got into my crate and snuggled up as quick as I could before they decided to go on another holiday and leave me even longer. Crikey it was good to be in my very own crate in my very own car. We didn't go home
. We went to Leura for a holiday for me. I love Leura
. We didn't do much that first day cause Mum and Dad were awful tired. I thought holidays were supposed to refresh you. All they did for the first few days was sleep. Something about jet lag .... whatever that is. There's a great dog park at Leura and I have heaps of mates there.
|Here I am at the dog park at Leura with my mate Oscar. He's a real good bloke and he likes to run just like me. |
On our first arvo at the park I took off for a run with my mates and I was so weak from not eating that I couldn't run much and when I did a little bit I hurt my back ..... BIG TIME!!
I put on quite a scene. Whimpered like a baby!! Everyone at the park thought I was dying. Well I had to show 'em it wasn't alright leaving me like that. You blokes all know what it's like, aye? My back was ok but Mum wouldn't let me run for a few days until I got some good tucker into me and good tucker I sure did get into me. I can't stop eating. Anything that's put in my bowl I devour in super quick time. Mum reckons I'd eat the bowl if she didn't take it away. No need for poached chicken breasts. I'd eat a raw chook if I was let loose near one. Matter of fact when I get home I'm going to give my two legged sister's chooks a real good go. Crikey ...... I almost forgot about those chooks. Not to mention the pig!! I sure hope she hasn't taken over big time since I've been gone. Here's a picture of one of the chooks and Poppy that my two legged sister, Jenni sent Mum and Dad the other day. It's the footy finals in Australia and Jenni's family are Hawthorn hawks' fans and had a bit of a do at their house on finals day. Glad I wasn't there. I'd hate to think what they'd do to me. Must say I felt a bit sorry for Poppy for once. Just in case your interested, although I couldn't possibly see that you would be, the Hawks won.
Crikey it's good to have Mum and Dad back but don't tell them
that ok?????? I'm still a bit snaky on 'em. We are heading for home tomorrow. It will take two days to get there but hey ...... after all this time ..... what's another few days? I might just forgive 'em once I get home. I can't wait to see all the Grandkids AND
I can't wait to go to the BEACH
!!! Crikey it will be good to get home. I've missed you all so much. It will take me a little while to catch up on all your gossip but catch up I will. I think Mum owes me lots of computer time don't you? Oh I forgot ....... they did buy me a swanky collar and lead from Holland. I look extremely handsome in it. Well I will when my neck fills out again. It's a bit big on me just yet. It's the weight thing ...... my neck got awful skinny too but it won't take long and I'll be back to normal. Back to normal and BACK HOME!!
It doesn't get any better than that, aye??
Crikey I hope you haven't forgotten me. You do remember me don't you???????????
Wanna run ...... Love, Charlie.
We wondered where you were! We've never been able to to the no eating technique. SHE says we're just furry, walking stomachs.ReplyDelete
Bwahaahaa! We're laughin at the piggy dressed as a Hawk! Crazy.
Glad the pawrents are back with you AND that you've made them feel guilty...
Crikey ...... furry, walking stomachs!! That's quite a picture you paint.Delete

OMD OMD OMD - CHAAARRLLEEEEEEEEE.... I missed ya mate! I was thinking about you only at the weekend there; so perhaps was getting the vibe that your folks were back - you sent excitement ripples into the ether!
But wait...LEURA??? You were in NSW??? Blue Mountains NSW??? How did I miss that bit of news? It is one of my favouritist places. Safe trippies homewards and so very glad you have been reunited. If mum and dad share their stories with you, will you pass them on to us? Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Crikey Aunty .... it's so good to be back and hear from you again. I have been to Leura. I'm so glad you like it too.I love the Blue Mountains. On our last night there we went to Sublime point and we had it all to ourselves. We just sat for ages, soaking up the peace. It was so silent. The only thing we could hear was the call of the bellbirds from way down in the valley. Pretty special, aye?? Do you really want to hear Mum and Dad's stories?? Pretty boring if you ask me.Delete
...aw mate, at least they might have some good piccies? Sublime Point lives up to its name for sure, I am just glad that you got to tag along for that one at least! H&W, Y-a xxxDelete
Hey Charlie - it is so good to have you back again - you know there really should be a law against peeps taking vacations without us.ReplyDelete

Crikey I knew I could count on you not to dob me in. Thanks!! Mum said you blokes were the most popular breed of dog she saw on all of her travels. She said she saw more French bulldogs than any other breed. How good is that??Delete
We were looking and looking for you. under the bed, and in the closets but you were no where to be found.ReplyDelete
Crikey ..... did you really look in all those places for me?? Well I wasn't there but I'm here now. It sure is good to see you again. Did you like the beach picture Mum and I did for you??Delete

Aroo to you,
Crikey Sully ..... good to see you again. I'm not going away ever again for that long. That was ridiculous, aye?? I'll try and stop Mum from rambling on about her trip. No-one wants to hear about that. She bored me half to death with it all. Don't wanna make you blokes suffer too.Delete
We've been thinking about you these past couple days. We wondered if you were gonna make it back in time for the big election or for Santa Paws to come! We are glad you are back. We missed you like crazy! Oh, and we got skunked on Saturday night too.ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley

I am getting lots of special treats and belly rubs and I sure am going to demand lots of puter time.Delete
Hooray! Charlie is alive, and well! A bit skinny I see, but well!ReplyDelete

MR JF SIR..... I think I missed you the mostest!! Crikey its good to be home. I'm gobbling up everything I can get hold of. I've put a bit of the weight back on but I still have a way to go. It's not all bad .... I've been getting lots of great food. Would you believe they are using cheese for treats. I LOVE cheese!! That photo on my blog was after I had been at Leura for a week. You should have seen me first off. I looked terrible. I didn't have any meat at all on my bones. There are some stories to tell but I've gotta catch up on everyone before I can spruik too much. Crikey .... so many sick mates and Jazzi ..... what to say!! Too sad!!Delete
I'm glad your parents are back and you are back in Blogville too! I bet you will visit your beach first when you are back at home, hope it's still your beach and no one occupied your sand castle :o)ReplyDelete

Welcome back, Charlie! We are happy you're back home and eating! We don't give up food for anything, so we are a bit puzzled by that tactic. We just ignore Her when she picks us up from the doggy resort BOL. Enjoy your peep time and have a blast at the beach!ReplyDelete
Braeden, Seth and puppy Riley
Crikey Braeden and Seth and Riley .... that's all you do?? Fair dinkum ..... I wish I could be that cool. I don't even like Mum and Dad going to the shops without me. It's so good to be home and back running on my beach.Delete
