 The three amigos on a mid winter break somewhere in the middle.
 I'm on holiday, I don't get out of second gear.
 Two bums in the forest
 13kms today again, such a big job,  time for a rest.
 Euan on the trail of rabbit.  Quick get ready to stomp on his lead.
 Euan did think he had to track us out of the walk, nose to the grind all the way back.
 Later back at Dog Island - Can someone please throw a stick?
 Doin what I do best.   Posin
 Quick, take the photo....
 Going,  going.........
 There be rabbits
 Posin does be hard work for Euan.
 Euan did put his big pants on and walked all the way across the swing bridge without turning a hair.   Mum was gobsmacked.
 Big job done.
 Ringside seat, waiting for the show to begin.
 The show.
 View from the mosh pit
 Neighbourhood busybodies
 Throw the stick, throw the stick.   Yeah nah,  just kidding.
 Borders borders borders
 Still walkin - energy to burn
 We did pretty much have the place all to ourselves.

 I don't like to walk on a lead
Thats no fun
 Tis better to wander
And snooter till done
 There's no hurry let's amble
And sniff round the hood
 That's the best doggy walk
A slow shuffle is good
 So don't make me walk fast and surely not run
If you try to set pace  I'll just sit on me bum
 And while I'm sat lookin all woeful and sad
I hope you're guilt ridden and feeling real bad
 Mum's losin the will - goin into a coma
Would you speed it up Bodie,  I want to go home
 Words like "hurry along" and "Rattle your dags"
Make me dig in me toes , just see how I lags
 My pace starts to wane, poor me bout to die
Mums planning my requiem  a tear in her eye
 If I play my cards right,  and Mums in a grump
She hoists up to carry 10 kilos of lump
 We turn towards home, my compass is set
The smells on my walk,  I'll never forget
 As I race up the steps and bound in the door
High five to young Euan, grab my toy off the floor
Play with me Mum, how fast I can run
I've spare energy to burn,  let's have some fun

 Its rained all day
Its rained all week
 There's naught for us to do 
But sleep
 I've slept on the couch
I've slept on the floor
 Sleeping for England
I'll win GOLD, hear them roar
 What 'bout Euan you ask?
Well he's bored as all heck
 Whingin and whinin
So annoying   - Feck
Sunnier times in actual summer
 Please play with me Bodie
In the garden we'll run
It's just raining a tad
We'll have so much fun
 You've got to be jokin
The gardens all boggy
Rain sleeting sideways
I doesn't do soggy
To our friends in the werld
With your summer near done
Spare a thought for down under
Take pity - send SUN
