Chico - Running to keep Warm - Love it!

Whenever we get together all we do is run around chasing each other, this way and then the other way. Round and round in circles. It's great that Haggis can keep up with me, but I thinkg we slow down slightly just to keep Radar happy, it's not his fault he has short legs.. He does his aboslute best to keep up..

We have so much energy that when we jump out of the car, we go mad. I need to as a I need to warm myself up but it doesn't take long! It's a such an exhilirating sensation to be able to run at top speed and off leash.. and I have only bumped into a a tree once. And that was enough!

Sometimes when Haggis is feeling particularly energetic, she will play fight with us, but she's such a big dog she can do some damage - unintentionally of course! Especially Radar, he cops it BIG time! And he'll always run back for more, cause he just can't seem to get enough ot if! So sometimes for fun we like to gang up on the big Haggis, just to give her a taste of her own medicine! Ha take that big yin!

But no matter what happens we are all still friends at the end of the day and finish off with a nice drink together! Happy days!

Haggis - Visiting our Old Friends Bonny and Nico

It's so exciting when we jump into the car, we never know where we're going to end up when we stop! Such an adventure every day (almost). We used to see Bonny and Nico almost every day until they moved far far away, and now that they have another fabulous giant property to visit near Daylesford, we were invited to a play date again!

Bonny and Nico are both Cocker Spaniels and also rescue dogs like me. They are the best swimmers in the world considering they are pretty hairy dogs.. funny how our hairiest friends are all water lovers.. They definitely have excellent ball skills and give us a run for our money when chasing the ball. But alas for them and for all our fine young friends, we will always be the fastest... sorry! They have so much energy that it's practically impossible to get them tired, so by the end of the day, we're exhausted..

We also met some new friends too! A couple of miniature Appaloosa ponies and some horses.. the mini Appaloosa stallion as you can see here is a feisty little thing! When we wanted to go over and say hello to the bigger horses, he instantly turned his rear end towards the big horses as if to say.. "Don't you dare go near them! They're my friends not yours! You're not allowed to get pats." It's clear to see who is in charge here!

We stayed well away from them..

Chico - Visiting Uncle Archie Again!

We were so excited when we arrived at granny's house and discovered little Uncle Archie! He's twice the size than he was last time, I wonder how big he's going to get?

He was so excited to see us as well! He must think we're the BIG dogs.. well I suppose he does look up to us! It's so funny watching Uncle Archie run, he takes about a millions steps to our (especially Haggis's) one! It take's him forever to catch up with us in the garden, it's not even worth asking him to chase us, cause there's no way he can keep up!

Another funny thing about Archie is that he already thinks he's so tough and big! He plays with Haggis like they're the same size.. that is - until she puts almost all of him into her mouth, or rolls on top of him.. oops.. Haggis is the same, but she seems to think that she's still the same size as when she came to us.. yeah right!!

Haggis - Jealous of Radar and Heiji?

My relationship with Radar has recently taken a turn since little ms Heiji has joined the party.. he seems very interested in the little black dog, a bit too interested I say! As a result I must admit I am slightly jealous.. it is unfair that when another girl doggy comes along.. that all the makes all the boys stand to attention..

For example today he hardly came over to say hello, he was only interested in the little black Heiji with her beautiful shiny curly locks (the curls always do it).. so I ran away to get his attention..ran away into the next field so that they all had to chase me..

And they didn't chase me.. sob sob.. I don't care, they have have each other, but first I'll show that Radar what I really think about him! The bugger...
