You know it's winter here in Adelaide?? Well my furiends, we here in South Australia don't always get much rain fallin' from the sky. We ARE the DRIEST state in the DRIEST inhabited continent in the whole wide world. My state is fairly big....and most of it is classed as "arid". That's why most of our population live on the coast.
BUTT, we have had LOTS of rains here this month for a change. In fact we have had the wettest June here for years and years.......
Rain, rain, rain....
Runnin' into the storm water systems
Runnin' through my yard and down my moss rock steps!!
It has really interfered with my daily walking schedule. In fact, dad dad and I have often come home soaking wets.....makin' mum yell at my wet and muddy feets goin' through the house when we got home! He he he. That bit has been super fun.
Secondly, remember when my peeps insisted on going to Bright for their hollingday and left me to hollingday with uncie and Scarlet and Zoe???? That was last April. We finally want to show you some pictures....courtesy of uncie!
On the colder days we had to snuggle for warmth together under blankies and stuff.
Scarlet under the blankie.
This is us mucking about in the backyard and burning some calories.
There is lots of dirts available in uncle's backyard.......he used to have a big lawn....but that passed away in the big drought when householders were not allowed to put any water on them. But we kinda like the big clumps of weedy grasses and dirts....it's like a jungle!!
Problem is there are often "foot baths" happening before we can go back inside!
This is the first time I set eyes on this really cool doggie park near uncie's place. It has a section for big dogs.... and a section for pups and small dogs.....
We love running around in here meeting everyone....
Sometimes we meet fellow mini schnauzers!
Here I am dragging Scarlet and Zoe to play in the tunnels..... but they are skeered of them....
I'm not...... because I ran through tunnels at agility skool!
Look at this adorable photo....mum LOVES it!
Because this fellow mini schnauzer is light furred like me...... and this is rare here in Australia, his peeps were freaked out to meet me!
Here we are sayin' "Hi" to the big dogs on the other side of the fence.
Such a good time!!
So, uncie was sending pictures and texts to mum while they were away to show her I was happy and havin' a good time. The first night I kept going to the front door to wait for them....but then I settled into routine and was fine. So I have since given my peeps the OK to leave me at uncie's if I can't go with them. Just NOT that often!!
Back to the present......... I hope you are all in hard training for your events in the Blogville 2012 Olympics....... I'll be doing a reminder post soon!
