My feet feel cold and wet. Rushall Crescent Community Garden Fitzroy North

"Yay. A puddle. I think I'll have a paddle."
No! You'll get all muddy, Monty.
"Dad, my feet feel cold and wet."
That's because you're standing in a puddle, Monty.
*turns around* "Oh yes, a puddle. Yes."
"Dad, my feet feel cold and wet."
That's because you're still standing in that muddy puddle, you daft old dog.
"Hmm, oh yes, I seem to be standing in a puddle."
"Dad, my bum feels cold and wet."
Haha, you silly plonker. That's because you've just sat in that same puddle.
"Have I ? Oh, well that's probably why my bum feels all wet."

"Dad ! Dad ! Check out all this water !"
Wow, pretty nice, eh kiddies ? It's the council's new water garden.
"This is great. Lovely fresh water to play in."
Yes, it's very peaceful with that sound of running water.
"Phooo, it's gone up my nose."
Hahaha. Monty, you're all wet.
"Let's go exploring. Come on Dad."
Rightio. Let's see what else there is.

Big on self-expression.

"Ah, it's a lovely day to be out. I really feel the need to express myself to the world."
*peepee* "Oh yes. That should really tell them how I'm thinking."
*kick kick* I'd better spread the good news around. That's better."
*kick kick* "Oh yes, it's all coming together now, I can feel it."
"Right, what's next. Maybe over there."

Monty ! What have you found this time ?!
"Someone's old piece of toast. Yum." *crunch crunch*

Ick. But it's covered in ants !
"Yeah. It makes it taste a bit bitter." *crunch crunch* *cough cough*

Well just don't puke it up inside later, Mr Garbage Guts.
"What, and waste it ? No chance." *cough*

What's for dinner, Dad ?

"What's for dinner, Dad ?"
Maybe I'll roast you tonight, Daisy.

"Me ?"
Yes you. You should be good eating after all these years of snacks and treats.

"OK Dad. What else ?"
Oh, a few veggies, sweet potatoes, that sort of thing.

"Yum. Sounds grand."

You too Monty !
"What, roast me ? I'll be too old and tough. The veggies look good though..."

Don't worry, I'll throw some bacon on top. That'll make you taste just fine.
"Yum. Bacon. Let's do it then."

Finders keepers

Monty! Show me your nose. What have you been doing?
"Ah well, Daisy buried her biscuit in the back yard, and I know where she hid it, you see."

So you stole her biscuit did you?
"Finders keepers, Dad. The quick or the dead from starvation."
Is that how it is ?!

Better now.

How's those feet now, Monty?
"Much better thanks Dad. I can walk properly now."

Jolly good. Let's go for a walk then.
"Well, I'd rather have a snack. Can we go for a snack somewhere, seeings as how I've been a good boy and all ? A snack would be nice. "

Hmm. Maybe.

Dog maintenance. Monty's toes.

"Hello Dad. What are we doing today?"
Hello kiddies. We have to go and trim Monty's toenails.

"Oh. As long as your not doing anything to ME."
No Daisy. You're safe for today.

Show me your toes, Monty.
"No Dad. It tickles, and I'm very delicate."

Poor Monty. Now show me your toes. Yes, they definitely need trimming.
Let's go up to Zacs.

"But Dad... I don't wanna......"

Stuffing around with camera effects.

Smile, Monty.
"Dad.... Stop messing about with your camera phone."
But I've found this new camera app.
"Will it make me look younger and thinner? "
Alas no, but here's your heart tablet to make you breath easy.
"Yum. Gimme gimme."
"Will this new camera app feed me too?"
Hmm, let's see..... *click*... How about a chuck bone?
"Cool. Neat app Dad. Ya gotta love Android phones."

I'm driving.

"Throw me the keys, Dad. It's my turn to drive."
Sure thing, Monty. But how are you going to reach the peddles?
"Easy, Dad. Jam jars on the feet. We saw in on Raiders of The Lost Ark, remember?! "
"Daisy, you do the gears."
"Come on, Dad. Jump in."
Oh yes. Now shove on over, 'cos I'm driving.

Why is that, Monty?

Is that so?
"Oh yes. It must be almost five o'clock, and I'm starving."
Poor Monty.
"Yes Dad, so let's go home before I starve to death."
Haha, yes well we wouldn't want that.

Lovely day. Rushall Crescent Community Garden Fitzroy North

Hello Monty. What a glorious day!
"Yes Dad. It's a lovely day to be out."
*yawns* "Now the sun's making me sleepy."
That's because you're a lazy lump.
*sniff* "Now the sun's making me sneeze. "
Well don't sneeze on me like you usually do.
*garumpfff* "Phew. That's better."
Ick. Dog snot everywhere. Thanks.
