Today is our Harri's birthday. He would have been 15. We still think of him EVERY
day and Mum and Dad miss him like you wouldn't believe. I sometimes get a bit jealous but not much cause I know they love me heaps too. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for Harri. He knew I was the right bloke to take his place and he kept sending Mum to look at a picture of me and Mum and Dad finally went and looked at me in the real and one look at me and that was it, aye?? Here I am.
Look what Mum made me do today??
Yep ...... she made me wear Harri's coat. What was she thinking?? I'm NOT
an Irish terrier but hey ..... the colour suits me, aye?? I'm sitting in front of Harri's tree and memorial. She tried to take the pictures without the mat but I wouldn't sit down. Well ... I'm bony and that concrete stuff's mighty hard. That's my excuse anyway! See that possum bloke? Mum puts water in him, EVERY
day!! I never touch it but our Harri used to drink out of it all the time. He had a big bowl in the kitchen but he liked to drink out of that itty bitty possum bloke. Weirdo, aye?? AND
Mum still fills it up daily!! Fair dinkum ..... she's as weird as our Harri.
|The trees a gardenia. It's called TRUE LOVE!! When Mum saw the name at the nursery she just had to buy it. |
|Dad fished this rock out of a little creek at our Harri's favourite place to stay. It's in Victoria near a little town called Corryong. They have the man from Snowy River festival there each year. I went last year and I know why Harri loved it. I do too. |
|If you biggefy this you'll see where a bird pooped on his head. Too funny aye?? Why the heck you'd wanna drink out of that piddly little thing I'll never know. |
Anyway today is our Harri's birthday so I thought I'd be a real good brother and share some photos of him with you. Crikey it's his birthday ...... you know what that means don't you?? ICECREAM ...... it's compulsory on birthdays. I'm going to get some icecream. It was worth wearing Harri's coat after all, aye!!
|His very first day at his new home with Mum and Dad. |
|In his boots. I inherited them. |
|With Saint Murphy!!|
|With Brand new Jo!!|
|With Elvis ..... do you remember me with Elvis. They made me dress up. Hmmmmmmmph!!! |
With our Lucy!!
|This was in Esperance in Western Australia. Harri was VERY well travelled. I haven't been to WA yet ..... but I'm going one day!! I sure wanna run on that WHITE sand. |
|This was in Broken Hill. Those flowers are Sturt's desert pea. Pretty, aye??|
|Harri was a Flyball champion. This was taken on his first time at Sydney Royal. He looks keen, aye?? Mum was very nervous but she did a good job. |
Wanna run ...... oh .... what the heck! ..... 'UP THE IRISH' ..... Love Charlie!!
