Waiting while Dad buys coffee...

You two wait there, I have to buy coffee.
"Yes Dad. Don't be too long."

Good kiddies. I'll only be a minute.

Wash and injection day today.

Today is the day for Daisy's arthritis jab, so off to the Fitzroy Vet we go.

Needle is done, so it's into the hydro-bath for stinky mutts.
"Is this really necessary, Dad ?"
Oh yes. You stink.

Look at that. Beautiful and clean.

Daisy's fringe is back to its usual glory.

Dad loves you more when you're clean, Mr Darcy.
"Really, oh well then... I guess it was worth it."

Lovely girl.

Can I pee on it ?

What do you think of the new pavers, Mr Darcy ?
"They look good Dad, but am I allowed to pee on them ?"
Yes I guess so, that's all there is out here now.

New carpet - and keep out of the way !

We have just about finished our renovation. One last job is to put some carpet on the stairs.

Keep out of the way, you two. Stop walking on Sam's carpet.
"But Dad, you can't do it without us helping."

A new back yard.

We have just about finished our renovation. Our last job is to pave the back yard.

What do you reckon, Mr Darcy ?
"Well it looks good Dad, as long as I'm allowed to pee out there."
Ah, well, we will see about that.

I can smell it on the wind...

*sniff sniff* "Can you smell that, Dad ?"
What can you smell, Daisy ?
"Bacon ! I can smell it on the wind."

"I can smell it too, Dad."
Really, Mr Darcy ? Hmmmm.

"That way Dad. Over there."
Well now, that direction leads to 'Breakfast Thieves', so I guess we had better go check it out !

Walk and a coffee

Ah, it's a lovely sunny day - cold but sunny. I need a coffee.

"What are we having for breakfast, Dad ?"
We ? We are having a roast chicken sandwich... and a coffee.
"Oh I say, chicken ? Jolly good."

"Dad, I want toast please."
Yes of course Mr Darcy.

A trip to Port Melbourne Beach for a bit of exercise and a paddle. Part three.

We're having a lovely stroll at Port Melbourne Beach.

Come on Daisy. Let's go under the Port Melbourne Yacht Club.
"Sure thing, Dad. Me first. I'll check it out."

"All clear, Dad. Come on in."

"But watch your head. It might be a bit low for you."
Yes, shall do.

... and out the other side. Hello Mr Darcy.
"Dad ! Come and chase seagulls with me, Dad !"

Sure thing.
"Dad, I'm having such fun !"
Jolly good.

A trip to Port Melbourne Beach for a bit of exercise and a paddle. Part two.

It's lovely here at Port Melbourne Beach.
Darcy is having a think about going in.

Go on in, Darcy. Don't be a coward.
"It's a bit scary Dad. I'm not sure what all this water is."

It's called The Sea. Look at those two. They're not scared.
"OK, I'll risk it."
Good boy. Brave hound.
"Wow, it's a bit cold."

"OK, that will do. Time to chase seagulls."

A trip to Port Melbourne Beach for a bit of exercise and a paddle. Part one.

It's sunny now, but forecast for rain this afternoon. Quick, let's head to the beach so I don't have to vacuum the house.

Daisy is in first.

How's the water, Daisy ?
"Oooh, a little chilly but not bad."

"La la la. Lovely little paddle."

"Brrr, it's cold now. That will do."

"It's lovely in, Dad. Thanks for bringing us here."
Jolly good Daisy-Mae, no problemo.

"In fact I think I'll go back in. La la la."

""Hmm, I wonder if there's any fishes to chase."

I need to go outside, now...

"Daddddddd, um, I need to go outside, now !"
Is that so ?
"Um yes, rather badly in fact."

Ah, OK. Well then it must be walkies time.
"Oh, what a fine idea... and hurry..."

Dad's home.

Hello you two. Dad's home.
"Yay, Dad's home. Dance around and spin around."

"Hello Dad. I missed you."
Hello Mr Darcy.

Come here. Let me give you a scratch.
"Yes please. Scratch my head please Dad."

"Kiss my nose Dad."

OK. Everybody kissed and scratched. What next ?
"You have to ask, Dad ? Walkies... and hurry... I'm busting."

Mmmm, roast chicken for dinner tonight

You two are the luckiest dogs in the world, did you know that ?!
"Why is that Dad ?"

Because you're having roast chicken and rice for dinner, that's why.
"Roast chicken ? Wow."
"Roast chicken ! Yum."

Yes, roast chicken. Lucky mutts. Just wait while I share it out in your bowls.
"Hurry up then, Dad."
