4 chickens a bird and a dog

The┬ádog chases the chickens around the yard while the bird(a white cockatiel) says ‘watcha doing’ and ‘pretty girl.’

We only live in a small townhouse so we are doing pretty well to have so many animals around us.

Time for a rest

ben has a nice shed witch is nice and warm but its not enough. He wants to get inside and scratches on the sliding door it wakes us up every morning. so my dad put some old lounges in front of the door and now he sits on top of the lounge looking at us form outside. Does anyone know how to stop dogs scratching on the door?

Today Michelle went to work and dad was working in the shed. I think dad got called into the phone and when we got back outside again the dog was gone. He did not realize that he left the door opened . Panic stations as we jumped in the car and drove around the neighbor hood with our window down and head out the window asking anyone and everyone if they had seen a brown and white cavalier roaming wild.

A lady not far from us had picked him up and put him in her shed. She was interested in keeping him but I said Michelle would kill me if I sold her dog. Dad will need to be more careful in the future.

Birds get into all kinds of places to escape being trained by our two expert bird whisperers. We had to pull a whole bunch of books out of the bookcase to find this little escapee. Before long he will be sitting tamely on the ends of the girl’s fingers as natural as if it is a branch in an idyllic woodland.

Ben the social dog @ the river


some photos taken of Ben on a morning walk down at the Werribee river. Ben is good with other dogs and people. He loves his off lead time. He actually thinks he is a sheep and has a wooly winter coat at the moment.
