 Enough of the pawpawartsy.  Lets get this show on the road....
Once a week while Mums busy slaving down the salt mines Aunty Rach from Take The Lead comes round and takes us gadding about the hood.
 Sometimes its just us but most times theres back up....
 Thursdays is Terrier day.   Here's me, the giant amongst terriers.   Just small groups of dogs and we're all on a lead so there's no chance of getting lost or wandering off.
 While on other days we get to hang with the big guys Jasper and Lucas.  Borders borders everywhere.
 All these places are in our hood, we're pretty lucky really.  A snooterers paradise.
 Aunty Rach takes lots of photos and vids for to send to Mum sos she can see what a good time we are having, while shes having a similarly good time - snootering her way through spreadsheets.   *snorts*
 Top secret locayshun, if we told you where this photo was taken we would have to kill you. Don't we look special in pink?
 An off lead butterfly seen on our travels.
 And water water everywhere.  NZ is not far from water anywhere, you can see my joy at finding some to wallow in.  It's been very hot this summer so the occasional dabble is tolerated.
 Dont even think of making us go in that raging river,   its flowing too fast and we'll end up in the Waitemata Harbour.  We're not much of swimmers you know. 
What do you mean we are going home already.  This was so much fun, thanks Aunty Rach, see you next week.

 Mmmm hungry,   time to go over and rattle up the sous chef.
 Mums reading her book,  must be a good one
 Excusy,  do I hear the rattling of dinner bowls in the not too distant future?
 What do you mean daylight savings day.   Stomach,  backbone,   capisce??
 Does not compute foreign language "Daylight Savings"
 Do you wanna run that one past me again?  Have you gone on strike, better conditions - what?
 This is not looking good.  Time to call in backup.
 Look into my pleading eyes.  Which part of hungry do you not unnerstand.
Oh shes hard, maybe we need more backup?

 We doesn't know how it happened but by some twist of fate a Presidential wannabes wig was found on our back lawn on the weekend.
 Euan was on the scene to check it all out.  I was in lockdown with sore jaw and sore paw.  
Teeth been cleaned, injections been had, nuff said.
 Standoff at the border.   State name, rank and pedigree.
 Names Kahlo,  cousin, & gonna be the boss of you.  Cavoo.  
Bring it on.
 So Euan showed Kahlo the ropes of the Huia Funpark.  First game = Zoomies
 Chase me Kahlo, Chase me
 Lap 2 and Euan is still in the lead.  Kahlo is staying in the race.
 Second game.  Synchronised snooterin.
 So much grass,  so many sniffs to be snootered.
 Cousin Finn was also stayin so we brought him out next for the intros.
 Safety position.  These dogs be huge.
 Gettin some parfum on
I have heard that one of my tuggies has already been passed to cousin Kahlo to practise for the Tuggy World Champs.   
 She's clearly been practising solo
 Testin out her new skills with Euan
 Time to bring out the big guns, my teefs are feelin better now Mum. (Psst don't worry this is editors license and the photos of me were taken when Kahlo came back a few days later.  We were'nt playing tuggy on operation day - Mum was scared my teef would fall out).
 Oops si doodle.  Thats not how you play tuggy......
 Yeah Nah
 Someones in big big trouble.  Wasn't me hangin off the dress, no siree Bob.
 Butter wouldn't melt
 As Kahlo was started to channel the Trump a bit much her Mum gave her a bit of a chop with the scissors.  Time to hide the sharp things methinks.....
Still pretty cute.  Doesn't look at all like her namesake though.  Where be the eyebrows??

 Today Euan turned a new milestone.   
Look at this here, full steam ahead!!  
No briberies or corruption needed.
 Up Periscope,  feets pedalling an swimmin with Gusto
 Well ok swimmin with Mozzie.  
Ewwwwww it's tickly on me tummy!!!!
 It did help that we had the puddle to ourselves on this three day weekend.Most of the rest of Auckland were spendin quality time in their cars on the motorway.
 No scary screamey children or big barkey dogs.  
Or rustley plastic bags,  or wind or waves.  Perfect.
 And then this happened.   Mum was gobsmacked.
 Euan did swimmin,  and stickin his face in the water, and retrieving.  
All at once.
Of course I can do this - what's the big deal....
 And retrieve
 Oh ye of little faith, good things take time.
 Pugh,  its a bit sandy up me noz
Euan the sandboy.   Clearly he is gifted!!!
