Helping Dad paint

Oy, I thought you two were here to help me sand and paint.
''We're just having our nap, Dad.''
*yawn* ''Yes, it's very tiring, Dad.''
Well, enjoy the sun then.

Mud, dust, snot, paint and gapfiller

Seriously, Daisy. Look at you, you grubby child.
Only your father could love you in this state !
''But you do love me, don't you Dad ?!''
Hmmm, maybe after a wash...

A small puddle.

''Hmmm, hmm, la, la, it's only a small puddle but it will do.''

Ick ! Daisy, get out of that.
''No way Dad. I have to paddle and drink and roll in it.''
Ick. Show me that face. Look at you !
Covered in mud. Covered in paint and gap filler too.

Daisy and Dad

Here's another old favorite from a few years ago.
Daisy and Dad.
My glasses must poke into her eye every time I pick her up. I think that's why she squints in that eye !

Monty and Daisy are off to the vet for tabs and jabs

"What's today's adventure, Dad ? We're ready."

To the Fitzroy Vet I'm afraid.
Monty needs his monthly 'pentosan' injection and you both need worm tablets.
Take care crossing the road here.

"There's Sarah. Hi Sarah. Can we have a treat please ?"

Settle down you two. Just wait there.

Monty's had his jab and I have the worming tablets. That's all.
Home again now kiddies.

How are you feeling Monty ?
"OK Dad. That needle always hurts, but the new vet Mindy was nice. She gave me a treat."
Ah well, that jab keeps you moving.

Wash day for stinky Monty and Daisy

It's Winter here in Melbourne.
I don't wash the kiddies too much in Winter because it's so cold.
But today is wash day for stinky Monty and Daisy.

Who's first in the tub ?! Monty, come here.

"Noooooo. Dad, I'm very sad now."

And very clean too !

Daisy stop hiding and come here. You're next !
Pooooh. You stink of possum poop. What have you been rolling in ?!

There. Much better now.
"Dad, I will get my revenge I swear !"

Poor thing.
Think of how much more I love you when you are clean.
"It's almost worth it then Dad."

Sharing hot buttered toast with our Dad

"We love our Dad."
"We do everything with our Dad... and if that's hot buttered toast, we definitely do EVERYTHING with our Dad."

"Yum, hot buttered toast. Thanks Dad."
You're welcome, I'm sure.
"Me too, I'm soooo hungry."
Sure thing, Monty.

Dog is my co-pilot

I saw this sticker on a car yesterday.
I'll have to find me one of those.

What do you think kiddies, is dog my co-pilot ?
"Wrong Dad. Dog is your pilot AND your co-pilot."

Well that's a happy thought.

Monty by the Old Brick Wall

Another day and another walk down our favorite alleys.
This is Old Brick Wall Alley.

It must have been a big, old warehouse once, with a back yard stable.

Check out the wonderful, old, bluestone foundations.

There's Monty in his Winter jammies.
"Hello Dad. What are you waffling on about ?"

I'm telling the readers about our alleys and this Old Brick Wall.

"Are we done with this wall yet ?"
Yes Monty. Let's keep going.

"It smells good, Dad ! Join in."
Ick. No thank you.

"Dad, you just don't understand."

I understand you need a wash !

Monty and Daisy and the cat on the fence

Monty and Daisy and I are walking down our usual alley.

Hello puss.

"Harumph. Hello yourself."

"Take those pesky dogs away please.
Mind you, they're barking up the wrong tree."

Yes I know. They're not real bright sometimes.

Goodbye puss.
"Harumph. Good riddance."
