Farewell Honey 1996 - 2012

Hello Readers, it is a very sad day at the house of hound today as our sister Honey has gone to the rainbow bridge.

Honey came to Mum and Dad as a ball of fluff and over the years she had many occupations - rabbit rouser, kangaroo chaser, cattle keeper, goat galler, ratter, security guard, biter of policemen, council workers and tradesmen, GAP test dog , a pillow for the greys and a fierce protector of Mum.

I will miss her standing under me to have a cuddle.

One of my favourite pictures of Honey aka the cougar.

Anyway Readers, I'm off for a cry and a lie down. Until next time - Murphy.

November GAP Walk

Good morning Readers, Dad, Ozzy, Eddie and I are just back from the GAP walk at Wynnum. Brisbane has been having "super cell" storms all weekend so we weren't sure if the walk would be on but being brave souls we decided to give it a go.

We didn't get too many pics this time given the rain and Dad's hound minding duties.

Pfft, what is a little precipitation to worry about? Brisbane city last night.

Say "greyhound!"

I knew Dad was busy with Ozzy and Eddie so I walked another human today. Thanks to Buffy's man for taking care of me.
Hello to the potential adopters who turned up to meet me us. Unfortunately Simba was inspired by my famous tanty dance this morning (usually done to accompany me rooing to Tone Loc's funky cold medina on karaoke evenings) and did her version of the time warp straight into them. Sorry about that!
Despite the rain it was still lovely along the foreshore.
"why can't we stand under cover?" Rocky asks.
Me waiting for Zuma to stop hogging the water dish.

Honourary greyhound and Rocky's flatmate Lainey was catching raindrops on her nose.

Mmmm... coffee and hot chocolates after the walk.

Well Readers, we just got the walk in as it was starting to thunder again as we left Wynnum so we didn't get the catch up as much as we would have liked to. We arrived home to this so I guess I will have to make the best of it and have a snooze this afternoon.

Bye for now from a very soggy house of hound. Until next time - Murphy.

Prancer Is At It Again

Hi Readers, you may recall Prancer visited a school a few weeks back to promote greyhounds as pets and dog safety.

Well he was at it again yesterday - the big guy paid a visit to the Strathpine day kennel kindergarten which is somewhere that humans leave their pups during the day. Prancer was there with Mum and Aunty Gail and had a great time meeting all the children and giving out cuddles. I hope I get to go soon!

Prancer loved meeting all the students while Gail and Bronny spoke about dog safety.

Anyway Readers, I'm a little tired of hearing about Prancer's exploits so I'm off for dinner. Until next time - Murphy.
