Daisy then and now

Here is our poor little chicken when we first picked her up from the Lost Dogs Home.
Sad, forlorn, unloved.



Here she is now. Loved, happy and hairy. The one thing we have really noticed is how her coat has filled out.

Poor Daisy and her Bravery Bandanna.

Poor Daisy went to the vet this morning to have a lump removed from her face.
It's a terrible ordeal, especially for me. Waiting for news. Hoping she will be all right.

We picked up Daisy this afternoon.



The poor little chicken was all dopey from the anesthetic.



But she is all right. Simone has taken the lump from her face. Thank you Simone.



Little Daisy came out with her "braveness bandanna" on, looking sad and gorgeous.



She is home again now, safe with her dad.



We have had lots of snuggles.



Bye for new

Poor Daisy, Poor Monty

Poor Daisy has a spot growing on her face, so she went in for surgery this morning.
She had to fast last night so no dinner. The poor thing almost collapsed from hunger.



Monty and I walked back home, and ran into this cat on the way.



This cat was totally unafraid of Monty, and proceeded to chase him down the street.



Every time Monty turned back to chase the cat, it coming running back after him to take a swipe at his nose.





Poor Monty. Watch out for that cat. It's coming backkkkk.


Now we are home, he is having a sook. I think the cat hurt his pride. Poor Monty.

W.A.S.H.

Hello again. Bath day today.
My doggies are smart. They know the difference between WALKIES and WASH.

This is waiting for Walkies...




But say WASH and this is what happens. Noooo.



In the tub we go. Daisy first. Poor little chicken.





All clean now.



Honestly, she is so much more lovable when she is CLEAN.



Enough torture for one day.

Special Guest Appearances - Ralph, Phil

Tonight I have two more Guest Appearances. Firstly we have this little Scaramouch.
I was walking up Queens Parade when this little hound popped up out of a shopping trolley to give me a right scolding. What a darling.



Next all the way from Romania, we have Danut's lovely doggo, Ralph. Now that's right across the other side of the world from Fitzroy, Australia, but the internet makes such friendships easy.

What a gorgeous boy. Ralph is a six year old Cocker Spaniel, and can be quiet naughty sometimes.

That's all tonight. Just a quick post. Goodnight.
Ooh no, just found this one too. There's Phil and Monty.
We sit in that park quiet often, enjoying the sun and a beer.

Lest We Forget Bronson

I have been sorting through My Pictures and have just found a few pictures of our old Bull Terrier, Bronson.
Bronny Boy was the most gentle and loving dog.
All he wanted was a bowl of spaghetti or a hug. That's not too much to ask for.


Here he is in his jammies.
The poor old thing was very old when these pictures were taken, so we cut down an old jumper and he wore that most of the time.


He would occasionally escape out the front door if we left it open, and because of the crick in his neck, he would always keep turning right. We would find him in the panel beaters workshop around the corner, following the calls of "hello old boy, escape again, did we?"

Poor old thing. We miss him.

Bath Day

There are days when it is too hard to wash Monty and Daisy in the laundry sink.

So, we pack our bags and head off across the park to the hydro bath at the Fitzroy Veterinary Clinic.

Oh, this is so much easier than washing the doggies in the sink.

I throw them both in together, and hose them down.

Here's Monty heading home after his B.A.T.H.


We don't LIKE bath days.
We have a big run in the park afterward to dry off.





Here's Daisy looking lovely and fluffy.
They certainly get a lot more smooches when they are clean and fluffy



Cheerio for now.

Holly

I think we had better squeeze in another post for this evening.
Friends are back from traveling around Australia, so I dropped in to visit.

Holly greeted me at the door, barking her head off, bless her.

Isn't she just gorgeous. She's just been washed and trimmed.

Fish and chips for dinner

Monty and Daisy and I are buying our fish and chips.



"Gee Dad, I'd love a piece of fish."



Here we are settling down for our fish and chips in Mayors Park in Clifton Hill.



Monty and Daisy will have a piece of fish each, thank you.

Almost forgot the father-in-law.

Hello again. Welcome back.
After the lovely guest appearance by Jose, I thought that I had better show Jose again with his dad, my Father-in-law.
As you can see, Papa is almost as handsome as little Jose.

They are a fine team.



We also recently rescued little Missy from the North Melbourne Lost Dogs Home.
We didn't know what to do with this poor little sausage, so we gave her to my Mother-in-law.

Here's Missy...



We think she is part Chihuahua and part fruit bat.

Will you look at that schnozz.

Until we meet again.

Guest appearance by feral cat from Alice Springs

Hello again.
We have another guest appearance to Monty and Daisy's site.

Now here's something you won't see every day.
Today we present a feral cat, all the way from Alice Springs, in the centre of Australia.

Here's Soxy.













Soxxy lives with my sister Jen, who lives with various other feral cats.

Oddly enough, she looks remarkably similar to Daisy - pictured here, all nice and fluffy after a bath.















Honestly, the excitement never stops.

A couple of old favorites

Here are two more pictures for today.

Here's Monty, caught digging up the garden.
The naughty boy was trying to bury a bone where I had just planted something














Here's a very old shot of Daisy Mae, taken with an old web cam device.
I love this shot of her, peering up at the camera.
We spend a lot of time gazing into each others eyes.

Special Guest Appearance by Jose

Today we have a guest appearance from Jose.
















This handsome fella' lives in Queensland, Australia.
He was rescued from the Lost Dogs Home at Tweed Heads and now lives a happy life with my father-in-law in Tugun.














Check out the eyes.
Poor Jose is half Chihuahua and half Fox Terrier, and has one eye of each.
When we rescued him, the poor fella' had a big scar down his back.
The running joke was that he was bits of two separate dogs, grafted together.

It turns out that the scar, about 1cm wide and 7 or 8cm long, was probably caused by shampoo for humans. Shampoo poured down his back at every wash, scarred his skin. Poor chicken.

One day soon we also hope to have a guest appearance from a few feral cats from Alice Springs.

The excitement is too much. Do stand by for more.

Wistful looks make me melt

Hello again. Here is the next installment.

Here are Monty and Daisy peering through a hole in a fence.

This is up near our Fish and Chip shop.



Here are a few of Mont and Daisy looking wistful. Don't you just melt.
