On Saturday we phoned Aunty Gail to see if her and Bails wanted to go and investigate the Orakei Basin Walk. 20 minutes from home, its a seaside basin in the middle of town where people does waterskiing and sea biscuiting and stuff. Believe it or not this is right in the middle of Auckland City. This is not far from the factory where Mum works.
No sooner were we at the park than I met this friendly guy. He didn't seem to belong to anyone there. We think he must have lived in one of the houses by the basin and just hangs in the park all day. Not a bad job if you can get it.
Well he certainly took a shine to me.
Followed me like the little lost dog he was.
Every move you make
Every breath you take
I'll be watching you
He was starting to wear thin and I did invite him to "flock off" but
He jes din't get it.
|Is he still there?|
On our way back to the car look who we met.
Now its not every day that you meet a Border Terrier as good looking as myself but we think that Bandit could play my body double in my movie, what do you think?
OK, here's a test for you. In the picture below is this me or Bandit - with Bailey?
And is this me or Bandit?
And is this me swimmin or Bandit. Oh okay you don't get any prizes for guessing this is Bandit, just because there is no human draggin him out there.
|Bandit my stunt double|
Sunday we awoke to another nice day and Aunty Josie rang and asked if we wanted to go on a walk to Karamatua. (Not to be confused with Kakamatua, its a bit further down the road.)
|A shadow of my former self|
What, not another walk, I'm exhausted from yesterday, can't you take the Goose, she'd happily walk with you to the ends of the earth!!!!!
See, you ladies don't even know where you're going. Hope you're going to back in time for my tea
Before they went into the forest all feets - both dogs n humans had to be sprayed. Our kauri trees are getting a disease and this helps stop the spread.Goose doin her very best at my job of posin. She's much better at walkin than posin which is quite obviously a guys job.
She's startin to look a bit ragged, has probably towed Mum up 5 kays of a hill.
And now handed over to Aunty Josie for the downhill leg.
A much needed foot spa.On the way back they visited Cornwallis, is that a very small dog or a very long wharf. Its a bit of both, Cornwallis wharf is the longest wharf in Auckland. It was doomed for destruction a few years back but lots of people got together and bought a plank each.
WEEKEND - DONE
