 It has been a busy few weeks at the BT Hotel.  I am beyond exhausted!!
 We have even been running tours to country retreats.   I do have a complaint for management.  How is it that the guests get the penthouse suites and I haf to share with the Euan on long journeys?
Wanna dance?
 Euan has been crowned master of ceremonies on the Entertainment Front.
 Inside,   Outside,  Any side.  Nowhere is sacred.
 He has made great friends with our new guest Loki.
 Although I'm not so sure if Euan likes being used as a pillow - that may be pushing it.  Or maybe he's just not enjoying the batman bluesuit.  Hard to tell.
 Loki has made hisself right at home.   Seriously mate, have some decorum.
 Loki has declared us now the Three Stooges.   Hmmmmm
 Mum has been stalked about the house for 3 days.
 Meals have been snoopervised.  That's beyond the call of duty and an impossible task really.  Good on yer mate for being there and good luck with that.  Even we don't hang about.
 I'm totally wrecked,  all these young things.
 This couch is full.  You will have to catch the next one.
I have however had some backup on the Snoopervising front with the lovely Silver Tamalee.
 Just keeping an eye out on Euan and Tweed.
 N Euan and Isla
 Escorting Tamalee round the country estate.
Showin her my retirement village

 Even managed to get a family shot.  Take a good look at Loki here cos some things are about to change.
Somewhere in the last two weeks I turned 13.   I was taken for a walk with my tribe.  
 On the good side we now have back up to roust out Ronald Weasley next door.

 Loki has taken it a step further and keeps an eye out for Ronald on every front.
 The three stooges.
Please explain.  Where have all these brown dogs come from?  Even the vet is calling you a Crazy Dog Lady!

 On Saturday it being a nice day and all Euan went off on a big hike with his border buddies.  And a Riff Raff.   Not me I stayed at home on the bed, you will soon see why.
 A border fest, because one border terrier is simply not enough.   And a photobomber.

 A very rare sighting of Riff the working dog.    All the borders lurv Riff,  she has no idea why, she even tried to go bush and remove herself from her worshippers at every opportunity.
 Yep there she goes - way in the distance , with Archie her ardentest admirer in hot pursuit.
 As some of the doggies was off lead and some was on there were frequent roll calls to account for all present.   
 Is this the queue for chicken?    Mmmm, our fave.
 There was something for everyone,  nice shady forest.
 Open roads
 Mud glorious mud
 And a Riff to chase,  there goes Archie again off haring round the bend.  Riff just couldn't get away from her determined suitor.
 Not me,  I'm staying with chicken lady
 12.2kms and an afternoon later.   Job done.

Easter Visitor to our estate.     We lurv visitors, especially of the Borderkind but don't call us Doggist.
 Euan took Tweed quickly under his wing and explained the ropes

 The usual job description for new recruits is complete perimeter recconoitre and mail drop
 I'll be checking your work in a jiffy
 Euan the underling doing initial mail checks, hope its all been delivered
 Top quality.   Good enough to roll in I say!
Still finishing the mornings work.  It is a big mail round.  Ronald - next doors weaseley cat has usually been in overnight.  Just because - he gets to snoop about the hood unchecked. Not to mention the odd hedgie on his annual hibernation route.  The birds do laps in our waterbowl.  Mebbe the odd meth head police chase across the lawn.   What doesn't go on in our garden!!!
Hmmm what do we have here,  the answer to Aucklands housing crisis?
Its pretty top quality.   I don't see any evidence of life though.  Mebbe you could list it with the local real estate?
