People – I just found this on mum’s computer…!!!!! What tha!!! I’ve never seen this puppy before…what do you think this could mean!? Do you think they’re thinking of… (*gulp*) …replacing me!? With a boy!!??? Have I shredded my last soft toy people…!?

Bella, Gigi and Sophie – meet Siegfried…

Posted in Family & Friends on October 12, 2010 by beatricebella



Hi all. Well it’s certainly been a wet few days but boy have I had some fun! Due to a very happy coincidence there’s been one big enormous sleep-over party at my place all this week. It all started of course with Gigi who is staying with us ’cause her mum and dad went OS for 6 weeks – add to this my bestest friend ever,  my sweet sister Sophie, who came to stay last week ’cause her folks went down south for a week to a wedding…so that’s three gals – (yep it’s a pajama party people!) – now add just a few more ingredients – a super cute boy (that would be my new biggest crush – the super sleek Siegfried – his parents went to a wedding too) – non-stop torrential rain, and a tiny apartment – and what do you have !? Yep that’s right people – ABSOLUTE MAYHEM!!!

Anyway I think we all ended up having a crush on Siegfried (aka Sieg) – my very first GSP pal!! (oh der – that stands for German Short-haired Pointer people!). Anyway we all took turns at showing off to him in our own way – this is me above showing off my ball skills (Sieg LOVES balls so I was out to impress), Sophie in the two pics below – just concentrating on looking damn cute and, doing her best most alluring Hollywood gaze ever below that is clan matriarch – the magnificent Gigi.

Of course it wasn’t just Sieg we were out to impress – suddenly there was competition for mum and dad’s affections too! Check out cheeky Sophie and Gigi below cuddling up to dad – NOT HAPPY PEOPLE!!!

But really the main game (and I mean game people – we are hunting dogs after all!) was the mighty Siegfried!!! Check him out below and you’ll see why…

Yep Sieg was a keeper – tall, dark, handsome, mysterious (well he is cross-eyed… surely that passes for mysterious?!).  Anyway I was so excited I froze up…I was bark-less in his presence people!  Imagine it…all I could do was stare straight ahead and pray he couldn’t tell what I was thinking…

All the while Gigi was up to no good….older and wiser she’d taken over the bedroom and struck her best Odalisque pose – I didn’t stand a chance!

 

So people – it was frisbees at dawn – there was only one solution (and trust me, mum wasn’t happy about it!) – we’d have to fight each other for him, in the lounge-room of course (well we were hardly going to get our paws wet people – I mean it was a cyclone out there!), and to the death…

Unfortunately (*sigh*) age won out over beauty and Gigi out-maneuvered me. She cuddled up to Siegfried on the lounge and Sophie and I were left to wallow in mum’s disappointment (that would have related to the fact that during the melee someone (it was me, it was me!!!) frustratedly chewed a basket to pieces people, then systematically dropped, one piece at a time, the entire contents of the recycling bin down the back steps . Ummm errrr oppsy!!

Anyway sleep tight people and I hope you didn’t get too flooded!

Holy Poladroid Batman!

Hi all. Well it’s a wet rainy day in Brisvegas so I raided mum and dad’s photos and have been having a play. I found this great program called Poladroid which converts normal pics into Polaroid-looking pics! Anyway check out these ones I created…(but don’t tell mum & dad or I’ll be in trouble with a capital “T” people!).

Me & G at the beach…

Me just looking cute…

Pretty cool ‘eh!? Anyway I give Poladroid 9 woofs out of 10. Try it out people!

Trout!

Hi all! Sorry it’s been ages since my last post. Mum’s job has been v busy so I let her have a little break – but only long enough for her  to organise a long weekend away together for me and Gigi (!!) before G’s dad comes to pick her up this coming weekend (*sigh*). Anyway long story short we had a great weekend – even if it did involve 7 hours in the car each way to get there and back (groan). (Boy oh boy – that’s gotta be my longest trip ever!!).  Anyway here’s some pics from the trip – we stayed in an old logging cabin on a stream called the Little Styx River up in the mountains at New England (near Ebor/Armidale) in New South Wales. Mum described the cabin as “rustic” but I prefer “dog-friendly” which translates to “we were allowed to be inside with mum and dad and tear around like crazy” – which, I’m telling you people, was really good ’cause it rained the whole three days of our stay. And I mean – rained and didn’t stop once until there was almost a FLOOD!! Luckily we had a lovely fire which dad kept going all the time during our stay and G and I lay about soaking up the heat between bouts of playing outside in the rain and just hanging at the front door or the windows watching the rain fall.

Appropriately our cabin was called “Possum Villa” – now I say appropriate ’cause G has a sort of possum obsession and is forever looking up tree trunks after sniffing out roaming marsupials. We were hanging out  for the possums to arrive but unfortunately they must have been too scared of our shenanigans to show. Slackers!!! Now we may not have seen possums during our stay at the Villa but we did some some v weird creatures mum called “kangaroos” – boy were these things scary people!!! I’m telling you – they stood and stared at us then hopped away – yes people HOPPED. V weird – the  stuff of nightmares even – I mean these things were huge!!! (Oh yeah baby – give me a possum any ‘ol day!!).



Now before we start talking about the pics you might have noticed I called this post Trout. This is not just because I think trout is a cool word (Mum said if I’d been a boy I was close to being called Trout!!), but ’cause the other reason we spent 7 hours in the car to get to New England was ’cause it was the opening of the trout season (whatever that means). Anyway it seemed to make dad all silly, carrying a stick around with string and insects attached. (Mum called it fly fishing – dumb if you ask me – though personally I’m pretty fond of catching the odd fly). Anyway dad went out in the rain with some friends and the insect on a string thingy and came back with some fish – some were babies and had to be let go before we got to see them and some bigger ones ended up breakfast whatever that means.

Okay now to the pics – so can you tell me and the G apart yet? We’re pretty alike but the first pic is her and the next ones looking out the window and door, and resting, are me. You can also see our little red cabin and some of the be-ootiful streams up there  along with a duckie picture that we found framed on the cabin wall. Mum checked and the label on the back said it was called “Black Ducks”. I made her take a photo ’cause I didn’t think you’d believe it people – someone had decorated that cabin just for me!!

 

 

 

Well people time for me and G to hit they hay now so to speak. (Okay to clarify, really there’s no hay here at home but I am feelin’ dog tired so a little kip might be in order…). Hope you enjoyed my pics everyone and talk soon. Oh and yeah – here’s some advice  – don’t mess with those kangaroos…
