Roxy was barking loudly...

.....this morning.  As it was about 6 a.m. on Sunday morning, SHE thought SHE'd better do something about the noise if we still want the neighbours to like us.

 It was a little bird, just outside the gate.
It was fluttering frantically.
 Bella came to check it out, as well.
 SHE gently picked it up....
 And placed it on the grass beside a tree, but it died a little later.
We looked it up in the bird book and think it's a kind of Honeyeater.
Birds in books never seem to look like the ones you find.
RIP little birdie.

Only one more week....

until Jazzi's:
(We call it International Taco Day)
It's become a favourite with us. 
You can put ANYTHING you want on a tortilla 
(or base of your choice)
 and   enjoy!
We're all set.

We usually have meat and cheese on ours.
(No green stuff)
We're hoping to get in some EXTRA practice this week.

SHE thinks SHE's so funny....
Now hand over that fish jerky.

Ahhhhh Spring....

Glorious blue-sky days.

 Plants bursting into blossoms.

 Enjoying a bone...
 And crazy, swooping birds!

Roxy demonstrating what we did on Monday and Tuesday
We got rain!  According to the News we got the highest rainfall in 24 hours in 100 years!
BUT, it waited until AFTER our early morning walks on Monday and Tuesday.
The ground and plants were so thirsty,  there's hardly any just soaked straight into the ground.

River Story..

On the weekends when we go to the river at Devil's Hole,
 Bella usually sits in Kelly's truck.

 Bella loves the walk part and she loves to swim.
She will sometimes join in the games.
 But she's aggressive towards Kelly.
She waits for Roxy to have Kelly's attention and then she attacks.
Kelly just thinks it's part of the game.
For Bella, it's REVENGE!
 Kelly is a Kelpie--a sheepdog.  Though she's an urban sheepdog and has never seen a sheep,
during lulls in wild games with Roxy...

 Kelly's sheepdog genes kick in and 
she 'herds' Bella.
 Kelly follows her everywhere and won't let Bella go where she wants.
 Even if Bella snaps or snarls....
Kelly just thinks it's part of the game.

We don't know why Bella is the only one she practices her skills on.
And I do not like to be herded!
(The peeps just think it's funny.)

Keep Fit Friday.......

.......Saturday and Sunday.
 Not all the dogs some on Fridays.
But it doesn't matter because Kelly is always here
 and we can play 'Get Kelly'.

This is our 90-minute to 2-hour workout.
We just have short breaks in the river.
As you can see, we need a bit of rain.
But not like Colorado.
(And there were originally 35 pictures)

Monday Mischief

Now we know you're thinking
 'which one of those girls has been up to no good.'

Well you are WRONG.
It's HER!

These are one of our favourite treats--okay so we have lots of favourites.

 They are little, chicken and very chewy
 See....not very big at all.
 BUT  looks what SHE does...
 Yes, halves them...
And sometimes even cuts them into threes!
This mischief doesn't always happen on Mondays...
What do you think about that?

Another Gotcha Day...

Yesterday was my Gotcha Day.
BUT because of Roxy's big date with Ernie, I couldn't tell you about it until today.

 Four years ago on September 7th, I, Bella joined the pack.
I was five months old and I travelled a long way.
First a long ride to the airport, two flights, 
overnight in a crate in a motel, another long ride to a meeting place, and finally another long ride here.
I was NOT impressed with the big scotties and told them so.
However, I was impressed with dinner....
so I settled right into the pack.
We celebrated my Gotcha Day at the river and had special treats!
(I still do not like travelling by car!)
