Stroll and a roll

It's a lovely evening so we are going for a sunset stroll.
''It's a lovely night for a roll, Dad.''
Groan, just don't roll in anything stinky please.
''I think you're missing the main concept here, Dad.''

Flowers for who ?

''Hello Dad, what's this ?''
Hello Monty. Flowers for you ?
"I don't think so Dad."

''Hello Dad, what's that ?''
Flowers for you, Daisy-Mae.

''Haha, don't joke. Give them to Mum or she'll be jealous of me. I'm not silly.''

Too right. I'll give them to Laura then. She'll pull your ears if I give them to you !

Dying for even half a sausage

Poor Monty. Poor Daisy.
We have walked past the Bowls Club in the park, and they have been cooking sausages on the barbecue.

"Daisy, help me get their attention, and try to look hungry."
"Bark, bark, bark."

"There's someone coming this way.... oh no, they've gone straight past."

"I'll guess I'll just starve to death here, without sausages, or snacks, or chop bones ..."

*grumble grumble* "Nobody loves me, nobody feeds me."
Poor Monty. Come home and I will make you a hot dinner.

Still waiting for sausages

We are in Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy and Monty and Daisy can smell sausages cooking at the Bowls Club.
Poor Monty is dying for a sausage.

"Dad, this paper smells like sausages !"

"Almost got it... almost got it..."

"Sigh, nothing, just empty paper."
Poor Monty.

"Well, I'm waiting here until I get a sausage."

Poor, poor Monty. If you collapse from starvation, I'll carry you home.

Sausages in there

It's coming on for Summer, and we are in the Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy on a glorious sunny day.

"Dad ! I can smell sausages in there."

So can I Monty. They must be having a barbecue in the bowls club.

"Hey ! You there ! Throw half a sausage through the fence for a starving dog !"
Monty, stop your barking !
"I think they're all deaf, Dad."

"Well, I'm sitting here until I get a sausage and I'm not moving until I do !"

Righto Monty. You just wait there.
Maybe someone will take pity in a poor starving dog.
To be continued ...

Big adventures in the jungle. Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy

Hey ho, it's another day of adventures at The Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy.
Mind you, it's a long long, slow walk to get there.

Come on Monty. Hurry up old man.
"I'm coming Dad, just don't rush me."

"I'm going to play in The Jungle."
No worries Monty.

"Last time I was in here, I ran into Arnie Schwarzenegger and Chuck Norris."

OK, well give them my regards if you see them again today.
"Hah, no chance Dad. Chuck Norris my be tough, but I'm tougher ! I eat Chuck Norris for breakfast !"

Let's go for a drive.

Come on kiddies, let's go for a drive somewhere.
''Yay. I want an adventure.''
''Harumph, as long as it's not to the vet.''

Yes, Daisy. No, Monty.
We'll go up to the park near the cafes on Queens Parade.

''Cafes ? Yum, can we buy snacks, Dad ?!''
Maybe. Let's go and see.

Daisy, you next.

Monty and Daisy have both just had a wash.
Now it's time for a summer haircut.

Daisy, your turn.
"Maybe a little off the fringe please, Dad."

Let's take all this off too.

"Make me look beautiful please, Dad."
No problemo, Daisy.

Monty, you first.

It's wash and a haircut for Monty and Daisy today.
They've both just been in the tub.

Monty, you first for a haircut.
"Yes please Dad. I'm a bit hot."

Look at all that !
That's a lot less Monty hair to spread around the house.

"Thanks Dad. I feel cool now."
