Hollingday in the White Stuffs - SNOW - Pawt 6 (Final)

Hiya all,

This 6 Pawt Hollingday saga was a marathon of its own ... don't ya think? Anyway - we have hit the home stretch and please enjoy the last Pawt...

FURST - I have to report "Operation Meet The Bright Peeps" was VERY VERY successful. I have NEW GRANDPAWRENTS!!! Grandmaw I and Grandpaw N sure did LOVE ME!! Grandmaw even went special shopping for me and bought me YUMMERS treats and FED ME NON-STOP.   I LOVES HER!!!!!!! I was on my bestest behaviour too. Grandmaw even snuck me her foodables at the dinner table ... when mum wasn't looking! We had such a GREAT TIME togethers. I'll show you how I trained Grandmaw later on in this post.

It may seem a little strange - but we went on a little excursion with my new Grandpawrents and ended up in the Bright Cemetery !! I've never been to a peep cemetery before but you can see my happy fur butt heading up the hill in front. That's my new Grandmaw on the left and dad dad in the middle, and my new Grandpaw on the right.

This place was like a big pawk!

See this wall?? My Grandpawrents are gonna be "planted" in a wall like this one when they go over the Bridge. It was all very confusing ... they are not planning to get planted anytime soon - they just booked the accommodation so they would end up together and where they wanted to be. Such a pretty place - surrounded by mountains and stuffs.

This is the old part - with lots of interesting stones to read, but I loved running around on the grass.

On the way home - I met a couple more locals.

These locals were friendly and waved at us each time we passed!

Another big day in Bright!!

My peeps and I saw the Grandpawrents every night for "Happy Hour" drinks and dinner. We alternated which house we ate at. Mum called it a "dinner party and red wine marathon". We ALL had a wonderful time. 

This is me and Grandmaw the morning we left. This is at their place. Check out the trick I taught her:

This trick is called "Feed the Hungry Schnauzer TREATS". She had the best JERKY for me..... hhhmmmmm! 

So we booked them for next year too! I proved to my peeps that I can travel the distance. This was the biggest car ride I have done and I'm not a great traveller!!

See ya in 12 months Grandmaw and Grandpaw!!!

Back in the car:

The scenery looked like this:

We pulled over so I could have a close look at these big things in a paddock. Mum says they are Black Bulls. They had a distinctive odour.

They were VERY interested in me ... mum picked me up when they started crowding closer ... and we left and said goodbye when I started shaking a bit!! See Ya BULLS!

We did a few stops to stretch our legs ... this was a cute town called Echuca. It is on the River Murray which is a huge river in Australia.

Lots of houseboats docked along the banks.

But mum didn't want me to go onboard without an invitation.

Funny trees here - never seen bark like this before!!??

We even got to stay in the same room at the Pet-Friendly motel at Swan Hill on the return journey. Won't be long till we get home now!!

So this Hollingday WAS A BLAST my furiends.... big drives, doggie motel, SNOW, chalets, underfloor heating, new Grandpawrents, lots of treats and walks ..... all GOOD!!

AND - I get to go back next year!! Mum says we might even drive up to see the snow again - if there is some - at the time we are in Bright! Wooooo Hooooo!!

Thanks for reading!!


PeeeeSss: Make sure your peeps are "on the ball" and have your "International Taco Day" tacos planned and ready to roll - not long now!!!!!

This fun day on October 4th is hosted by Angel Jazzi and her bloggie - and it means that we can eat TACOS in her honour!

Hollingday in the White Stuffs - SNOW - Pawt 5

Hiya all. 

I now resume normal programming - and provide you with the next Pawt of my Hollingday story.

After we drove down the big Mountain back to "non-snow" territory ... we hit BRIGHT a little town that is quaint, small, picturesque ... and where we are booked in for FIVE nights. Mum and dad dad have been here lots of times ... they LOVE it here - and this is where one of dad dad's old bosses (and his wife) retired to almost 20 years ago after leaving Adelaide. I get to meet them for the FURST TIME - so mum hopes I will be on my best behaviour so as to not disgrace myself. (**AS IF MUM!!!**)

We arrived back in Bright a little early and killed some time with a walk down by the Ovens River.

And there goes mum takin' photos of stuffs that isn't ME!! Again!

This is the little unit we rented in Bright. It is a two bedroom unit, complete with enclosed back yard. And I AM WELCOME here. A little bonus was that this unit is a 8 minute walk away from the peeps my peeps came to see.

Want a tour of our DIGS??? OK - If you insist!!

Let me begin by saying my bum bum is nice and warm due to the underfloor heating. My peeps have never stayed anywhere with underfloor heating until this trip. We had it in our Chalet and now we get it again here.  

Here is the kitchen - all impawtant for creating FOODABLES. Mum was happy - she had a big fridge, big oven, and dishwasher!

Breakfast bar and dining area.

My dining area ... bol!!

Lounge room complete with couch and two recliners.

Through to the Sunroom ... 

There's a couch and comfy chair in here - with sliding door access to the deck, BBQ and .....

Enclosed backyard with a creek running behind. The fence stopped me from trying the water there.

If you look closely at the base of our tree you will see a green stand with a plate on top. That's where mum fed the birds after she burned the toast. (She scraped the black stuffs off for them)

They were very pleased with their breakfasts. They got toast from us and ate the ripe lemons on our tree!

Back inside - they put my blue bed here for day time sleeps.

Nightime we all slept in here.

View from the middle of the hallway - to the left is the doorway into the 2nd bedroom with twin beds (both with a teddy on the bed) (I looked but didn't touch!)

Tour over - lets go for a walk up the street.

It got rural fairly quick - and I loved looking at the horse.

We are off to see the Platypus ponds.

Nice ponds - but as usual my peeps didn't see any platypus!

The walk was very pretty anyway.

Mum - I'm over HERE ....... don't disturb the napping duckies!

Yep - back to ME!!

Round the ponds we go.

Almost back to the unit - we have a nice pawk practically next door - and the red church in the background is directly behind our unit on the other side of the creek. I got to do a lot of running back and forth in this pawk.

Mum picked these flowers on our walk for the sunroom.

And dad dad and me tried out the couch in the sunroom. We were tired after our big walk.

Tonight we go and see the peeps my peeps know for drinks and dinner. Mum calls it a food MARATHON. Hope there are stuffs for me there!!

I'll let you know if they LIKE me in the next PAWT. That will be the LAST Pawt of this hollingday adventure!

Hug and Kiss Your Human Day !

Today, 6th September, we are pawticipatin' in Lily and Edward's (from the USA bloggie Two French Bulldogs"Hug and Kiss Your Human Day".... 

Now ... I admit that this is my idea of a true life trauma because (much to my mum's horror) I AM NOT a huggie and kissie type of dawg. My normal nickname is "Little Miss Independence". I show my love in other ways.

Anywho - this is for LILY AND EDWARD and BLOGVILLE - so here goes!!

Lookin' a bit nervous ...

Oooo Gotta shift .... take me from another angle dad dad !

Hmmmm ... she's makin' silly kissy kissy noises on my neck ... (sigh)

OK - one last big smile for my furiends the French Bulldawgs!!

Put me down now please!

So get huggin' and kissin' your Humans everyone - or just let them hug and kiss you ... as in my case.

See Ya xxx

PeeS: Blogger just told me this is my 300th POST... Wow!!
