We took Rusty for a New Year’s day walk out to Tweseldown today. A huge wooded area with all sorts of things for a pup to get excited about… Mud, sand, grass, trees, and plenty of water.
She’s just turned 21 weeks old and is already 22″ tall to the shoulder, and weighs in at 24kg.
I didn’t get a chance to take many photos before she took to the water… over and over again.
DAMN I’M GOOD LOOKING!
DITCH JUMP!!! HELLS YEAH!
SAND!!! OMG!!! I BLOODY LOVE SAND!!!!
WHAT? You still have the ball? THROW IT, DAMN YOU!
CAN’T…BREATH… BUT MUST FIND STONE…
MORE SAND!!!! AND I SEE WATER!!!!
COME ON IN!!! IT’S FREEZING!!!
THROW IT ALREADY!!!
WA… WAIT… JUST CATCHING MY BREATH…
LET’S PLAY MORE!!
OKAY… NOW STOP THROWING MY STICK AWAY ALL THE TIME…
Alex has figured out his Christmas work bench already. He’s a dab hand with the power screwdrivers, sockets and various screwdriver sets. He can strip and rebuild his race car in minutes – He’s quite amazing to watch!
He’s also really loving that drum kit… Yup – no sign of him even starting to get bored of it – in fact he is pretty good with it and even counts himself in now! “1,2,3, Bang crash bang!”
New Years Eve is going to be a quiet one for us. Funds don’t really allow for much, so we’ll probably watch a movie or something to see the back end of 2008 out – and then count the days to 2010 to get as much space between us and the poor year that 2008 ended up as.
As the Queen said of 1992, 2008 rates the same for me – most definitely my “annus horribilis” (and no, it has nothing to do with bottoms).
Well, considering what has happened, I am still looking forward to Christmas. We already had presents ready for Alex before the recent problems, so it will be a joy in itself to see him tear into his gifts and hear him laugh and squeak in delight!
As for you, be you a regular reader of my blog, an irregular one (they can do wonders with cosmetic surgery you know) – a friend, family member or total stranger – I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year…. yes… definitely a wish to all for a prosperous New Year!
As a Christmas experiment I am mentioning AlphaInventions. This is a blog focused idea set up to increase blog coverage and, well – if it works it could do all sorts of things… although I’m not sure how it works – so participating may yield some answers….
