Monty's eye. Last installment.

We've just been to The Vet to check up on Monty's eye after his little bit of surgery.
Jess says Monty's eye is all good and that the stitches will drop out in a week or so.

Now we're waiting for OUR breakfast at the Corner Cafe.
They're such good kiddies.
"Yes we are, Dad."
Yes indeed, Daisy.
"Can I have some toast please, Dad ?"
Of course, Monty.

Hot buttered toasty bits.

"Hello Dad. What are WE having for breakfast ?"
Well, I'm having toast.

"Dad, I'm hungry."
"Me too. I'm hungry too."

Sigh, well it looks like we're ALL having hot buttered toast for breakfast then.
"Yum."
"Me too some toast too."

I'll save this for later.

Daisy, what have you found ?!
"Someone's dropped their hamburger ! It's mine now."

Ick. You don't know where that's been.

"I'll just bury this for later, Dad. Turn around. Don't look."

Monty and Daisy in the chariot. Slice 4.

We're off to the park with Monty in his chariot.
Sadly, this is why we really need it.

"Dad. My feet hurt now. Can I ride ?"
Yes of course. Let me lift you up.

"Thanks Dad. I really like my chariot."
I'm pleased. You can thank Grandma for that.

You poor thing. Old, tired, sore feet, arthritis, surgery on that eye.
"Hungry too, Dad, you forgot hungry."
Oh yes, hungry too. How could I forget.
Let's head home for a hot dinner then.

Monty and Daisy in the chariot. Slice 3.

We're all off to the park in Monty's new chariot.
Daisy seems quite happy in there too.

"Dad, don't stop pushing. This is great fun."
Yes Daisy-Mae.

I need to stop to take a picture of that ridiculous fringe, Daisy.
"How about this pose, Dad ?"
Lovey. *click*

Turn a bit more Daisy. Lovely. *click*

"Am I gorgeous, Dad ?"
Hmm , maybe after a bath and a brush.
Now let's get going. You two fat lumps need some exercise !

Monty and Daisy in the chariot. Slice 2.

We're all off for a walk in The Park.
We always take Monty's chariot for when his poor old legs give way.

"This is fun Dad. It beats walking."
Yes Daisy.
"Dad, this is my chariot. Throw her out."
No Monty. Learn to share.

"Come on, Mum. Push !"
"Weee. Faster !"

That's enough, you two. You can both walk now.
"Yes Dad. I need to pee anyway."
"Me too Dad."

To be continued a little more. Do stand by...

Monty and Daisy in the chariot. Slice 1.

We're all off for a big walk to The Park.
Poor old Monty's legs always give out these days, so we always take his chariot.

"I want a turn too, Dad."
Yes Daisy. Up you come then.

"Weee. This is fun. Faster !"

That's enough for you, missus. Monty is tired already.
Up you come Monty. We'll try putting you both in.

"But Dad. this is my chariot"
To be continued a bit...

P'raps I'd better taste it, Dad.

"What are you cooking, Dad ?"
Oh, hello Monty, hello Daisy. I'm cooking up some chicken fillets that have been in the freezer too long.

"Ah. Cooking them up for us, are you ?"
Yes Monty.
"Ah. Browned in a hot pan, are they ?"
Yes Monty.
"Lightly salted, and a little olive oil, is it ?"
Yes Monty.

"P'raps I'd better taste it then..."
P'raps you'd better.

"P'raps I'd better taste it too, Dad..."
Yes Daisy.

"Very nice, Dad. P'raps I'd better taste another piece, just to be sure..."

"Oh yes. Very nice, Dad."
Glad you approve.

"Me too another piece too Dad."
Yes Daisy.
"Do plate it up nicely Dad, won't you ?!"
Sigh, you two have been watching too much 'Master Chef' with your Mum.

Monty's tablets.

Poor Monty had to have surgery to remove lump from his eyelid.
Now he has to take all sorts of tablets.

Come on Monty. Time for your medication.
"Aww, do I have to Dad ?"
Yes you do.

I'll wrap them all up in minced beef so you won't even know.

Here's the pink one.
"Yum."
Here's the brown one.
"Yum."
See, you didn't even know.

Poor Monty's eye. A bit more.

Poor Monty has just had a lump cut out of his eyelid.
He's been very brave about it.
We've just been to The Fitzroy Vet for a check-up.

"Dad, I feel a bit down. Maybe some bacon would cheer me up."
You shall have bacon for being such a good boy.

Poor thing. Show me that eye.
"Have a look Dad. I don't mind. Is it looking better ?"
Hmm, yes. Not too bad. Jess has done a good job.

"What about me, Dad ?!"
You're my snotty faced darling, and you look just fine.
*snuffle snuffle* "Thanks Dad."

Yum. Here's our breakfast. Who wants some bacon ?

"Dad, I'll need a fair bit to make my eye better."
Yes, I think you're right Monty.

Poor Monty's eye. A few days later.

Poor Monty has just had a lump cut out of his eyelid.

We're heading back to The Fitzroy Vet for a check-up.
Hurry up you two.
"Coming, Dad."

"Dad, I need a snack."
Well Daisy, the girls at The Vet will no doubt feed you liver treats.

"Mmmm, liver treats."

Poor Monty. Just look at that face. He's been poked and prodded and tested.

"Yes, Dad. I'm feeling a bit down."
Let's go and have some breakfast then. You can have some bacon to cheer you up.

Assume the position.

Haha, hello Monty. Are you hungry ?

"How did you guess Dad ?"
Well, you're in position for your supper. It's a bit of a hint.

"Oh no Dad. I was just passing and thought I might sit down here for a rest."

Yes of course. But seeings as how you're here, shall I make you a hot dinner ?
"Yes please, Dad !"

The usual ? Carrot, rice from the leftover Indian, a bit of minced beef ?
"Ooh, yes please. And a pinch of salt to taste."

We've found a new park. Part five. All Nations Park, Northcote

We've found a new park and we're checking out all the corners.
There's a big hill in the middle, so we've climbed to the top.

"Phew, it's a good view from here Dad."
Yes, it's not bad at all.

*hmm hmmh* "ad hoc possum videre domum tuum" *la la*

What was that, Daisy ?
"Oh nothing Dad. Just dog latin. "I can see you house from up here." "

Monty ! You made it to the top.
"Yes Dad. It's quite a walk."

Very good. Well, let's wander home for supper.

"Hang on Dad. I'm doing my noble dog gazing to the horizon pose. Take a pic for the readers."
Sure. *click*
Very noble.
