Fathers Day here in OZ

Hiya all,

Today is Fathers Day in Australia - and I think it's totally fab to have a Day dedicated to my dad dad!

He is VERY hard to buy for..... he says he doesn't want ANYTHINGY...... it frustrates mum to all heck too!

I, however, was not put off by all this and I pressed mum to make a little fuss for me and help me make a card and get a present for my dad dad.

He was very surprised when I put his card and present box on the bed for him to find after he got up and visited the little white tiled attached room. This is usually the time when we make the big bed together.

He got dressed and we went to the family room so I could have some pics taken.

 Here is the card I made for him - it has a photo of me on the front..... and a photo of me and mum on the inside. I thanked him for all the stuff he does for little ol me.

Then we open his wrapped present..... and I got him his favourite dark chocolate treat (which I'm not allowed to taste). There is also a black funny shaped box here....oh you are gonna love this dad dad..... OPEN IT!

Now - dad dad........... these are not just any ol' reading glasses..... these are VERY special...... I got them off the internuts....... do you know why they are SPECIAL..... Do ya??! Huh!!???

I gotta tell you dad dad....... you don't have any like these ..... they are battery operated and have little LED lights on them so you can READ in the DARK!!! Who needs stoopid ol' lamps and stuffs now???? Huh?? Oh you are impressed with me ...... I am screaming with excitements over the fact that you like my present!! Can I have some liver treats now??? Who's your most favourite doggie then????

Now for mum's present to you........ it's nowhere as good as MINE mind you......

In fact you might wanna go hide.......... I'll cover for ya!!!

She's gonna let you help her sand this ol' antique buffet that was gonna be thrown away!!!! Remember seeing this in your dad's shed a million years ago????

Well SHE thinks it's a good idea to restore it!!!

Mum thinks that's a good way to spend your dad dad's DAY!!!

Sorry dad dad.......... but we can all agree - MY PRESENT was MUCH BETTER!!!!!


  1. Oh wow! Happy Fathers Day to your Pops! Those are some great Gifties!!!

  2. Those are awesome pressies for your dad dad! Even the one your mom got him... we think restoring furnitures is kinda fun!

  11. Happy Father's Day! We don't have a dad, but we could smell all the barbecues in the neighbourhood yesterday.

    Great present, except your mum's is going to take up LOTS of walking time...just sayin'.

    Maybe you should have got him a new lead.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  12. Happy father's day to your dad! Hope you likes his glasses, is he a big reader?

  13. Great present Rubie not so sure about your mums sounds like hard work!!

  14. Your present was LOADS better, but I bet he'll say your mom's was just to make her feel better. Don't take it personally.

  15. Oh yah much better bol
    Happy Fathers Day and cant wait to see it all done!!

  21. Howdy Rubie, we had a good day with our Dad too but mum was sad at the same time cause you know our Poppa passed away recently. We love the presents you got your Dad. He will just love sanding the cupboard for sure! Also he can now read you bedtime stories! See ya sweetie pie. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  22. Your presents were very nice and very thoughtful :) Hope you got lots of treats for them!
    Maddy and Owen

  23. Ohhh Rubie what a wonderful doggie daughter you are giving your Dad dad such an amazing gift and such a cool card with you on it!! I totally agree that your gift was better and that maybe your Dad dad could get out of sanding duty by taking you on a long walk, just the two of you to spend fathers day together! I hope you all had a wonderful day! Love, Hugs and Tummy Rubs your Furiend Frank XxxxxxX
