Introducing Oprah: 3 May 2022

🐾Good day to all my human friends🐾

I am very sorry that I did not post for a while. But with mom being out of commission and with a whole garden to keep me busy, I did not have any time for hijacking mom’s computer.

Oooh, I must tell you I am an aunt now, Lian my human brother adopted a puppy two weeks ago. Her name is Oprah and she is a very busy little pup.

Oprah, waiting to steal my toy.
Oprah can’t leave my tail alone… She keeps biting it…
Oprah checking to see what I am up too…
Oprah eating a dried leaf….
Oprah is very curious.
Oprah checking to see what she can do next.

Oprah steals my food and toys. So, I am forced to hide my favorite toys from her by digging holes in the garden. Mom gets so mad she says I am ruining her garden….

Mom and Lian, says I must help them potty train Oprah. I must take her outside when I go outside. But Oprah is very naughty, as soon as she sets foot in the house, she makes a puddle or a stinkbom….

Oprah is busy in the sunroom, terrorizing Ogies.

I must say life is very busy these days. All Oprah wants to do is play, eat and sleep. I hide on mom’s bed to get away from her. I used to go lie on the couch, but Oprah got a way up and now I have no peace and quiet on the couch.

I get very jealous when Oprah sits on mom’s lap. But I am a clever girl, I devise a plan so that Oprah gets down from mom’s lap then I climb on and give mom lots of kisses. Mom keeps telling me I am her girl and she loves me to the moon and back.

Mom said if I am good, we can go for walks again in the Spring. Then her leg will be healed… Till then I will have to play with Oprah, and go on the occasional drive with mom.

I do love Oprah and I try to protect her. Mom says I am a good girl and I would have made a good mommy.

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a fabulous day.

Willow Shenanigans: 16 March 2022

🐾Good morning to all my human friends🐾

I am very sorry that I did not post for a while. But Mom was so busy at her computer that I did not have a chance to hijack it.

A lot has happened since I last talked to you. Grandad went away to a place they call a hospital and Mom was sick in bed here at home. I took care of Mom and made sure she was not cold. I also helped her to finish her food. After Mom got better, Granddad came home, but he could not walk. Mom spend all her time looking after Granddad and when she went out to fetch food I looked after him to make sure he was okay.

Well, I am here now. I took Mom for a walk this morning. It looked like her eyes were going to leak again. Since Dad and Granddad left Mom’s, eyes keep leaking. I try to lick away the water. Sometimes Mom starts laughing and we go outside and play. Sometimes I climb on Mom’s lap and I give her lots of cuddles. I don’t like it when mom’s eyes leak like that….

Mom said that I must get back to training, she told one of the people on that thing she takes the photos with when we are walking, that I had a very long school holiday (whatever that means). Mom also told me that if I behave, we can go on more walks this week. I like spending time with Mom, and I protect her from all other humans I don’t know.

I took Mommy on a walk
Mommy and I had a good workout
I am so very tired….

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed our outing this morning.

Have a fabulous day.

Willow Shenanigans: 15 November 2021

🐾Good morning to all my human friends🐾

Do I have some news for you. Mom told me that I must tell you all about my visit to the beach yesterday.  So here goes….

Yesterday morning Mom woke me up very early. It was still dark outside and that big light  in the sky was still switched off.  Mom then put her face covering around her neck, and then she went into her office and got her camera bag. I call it I will be back soon bag. When she takes that bag I stay at home and Mom goes out by herself. She do give me treats though.

Mom and Dad called me and told me we are going to the beach. Beach????? I did not know what that is.  Now I understand why Mom was putting stuff in the car and an blanket on the backseat the previous evening. I wondered why she put my bath towels, a water bowl and a bottle of water in the back of the car.

We drove for a very long time. When Mom stopped she went to the back of the car and took out her camera and Dad took me out of the car. Mom was walking one way and Dad took me in the opposite direction. I did not like that at all. I wanted to go to Mom. She climbed on to big stones and Dad told me that I am going to hurt myself if I go after Mom. I called her but she only came back a little while later. I was so worried I could not see her she just disappeared behind the big stones.

After a while we saw Mom again and she was taking photos of the water and all those big stones dad calls rocks. She showed Dad the back of her camera and said that she is finish and we can go. We got back in the car and I did not understand is this the beach? I did not understand what all the fuss was about. I did not even went for a proper walk.

Mom drove for a short while and then we got out again. Then I saw it…..

WOOOOFFSEEE what a big pool, everywhere you look is just water that come and greet you and run away again. I wonder why the water is afraid of me. There was also lots and lots of sand. Dad said I can dig as many holes as I want to here.

My first walk on the beach….

Dad took the movie of Mom and me playing in the water.

Mom said as soon as I listen to her when she calls me back and stop pulling and running off she will take my leash off and I can go play in the sand and water. But for now Mom says it is safer for me to be on the leash.

I gave Mom some proper exercise we ran in the water and when Mom and I turned to run back to Dad the water grabbed Moms foot and she fell down in the water, I pulled as hard as I could to save her from the water…. Mom got up and laughed she thought it was so funny. She told Dad that one moment there was sand the next moment nothing, just water.

Mom, Dad and I walked along the beach and then the sand started hurting us, Mom said it is broken shells and it can cut my paws and their feet. We turned around and went back to the car. Mom gave me some water in my bowl but I was not that thirsty but Mom insisted that I drink some and gave me some water in her hands. Then she took out my bath towels and dried me.

We got back in the car and we drove home. I was very tired and slept nearly all the way home. 

Me looking at all the water and sand
Me looking at all the water
Mom are you okay after your fall?
Me checking out the birds
Me playing in the water.
OOOH goodness I am so tired….
It is just to much effort to sit up on the seat. I rather sit on the floor and use the seat as resting place for my head.

Yesterday afternoon Mom and Dad watched movies and I caught up on some lost sleep. Who would have thought that an early morning run and walk along the beach can make one so very tired.

At home…. What a morning….

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed our outing to the beach.

Have a fabulous day.

Willow Shenanigans: 10 November 2021

🐾Good morning everybody,

What a morning. I was standing guard while Mom is giving Granddad his morning food. That’s when I saw something flying into the driveway. I told the thing to go away but it just moved closer to the gate.

After Mom finished in Granddad’s flat she came out and asked me what’s wrong. I then showed her the flying creature in the driveway.

What did Mom do? The most irresponsible thing you can think of!!! She opened the gate and invited the flying creature into our backyard. She clearly did not understand that it could be aliens trying to hurt us all.

I told it to leave us alone, and go away. Mom thought it was very funny and laughed the whole time. Even Snuffels smelled the flying creature’s butt and just walked away.

I could not understand how they can be so calm about something that moves around without legs and it can fly too. What kind of creature is this??????? And then it had the audacity to drink my water without asking!

Mom told me it is alright that it will not harm us. She invited it inside and now it is hiding under Moms bed.

Thank you for reading my post.

Have a fabulous day.

Willow🐾

Willow Shenanigans: 3 September 2021

Willow loves playing outside and with winter nearly finished I am looking forward to playing with her in the garden or what is left of it anyway. Willow has been digging all over the. The lawn has a lot of sandpits now. I try to take her for walks whenever we have a nice day.

Something got her attention….
If nobody wants to play with me I’ll play with myself….
Love playing with her rope toy.
Is this better mommy?
Willow locked inside so that I can sweep the passage.
Mommy can I please come outside I want to play ball

Willow love her stuffed animals. Well they were stuffed at the time the photos was taken. I had to take out the stuffing so that she don’t eat it. I don’t want her to get sick.

She really likes her unstuffed giraffe. When she gets excited she will go look for it and start throwing it in the air. She also use it as payment for treats…. When I am busy working and she want treats she will throw the giraffe on my lap or put it on my desk and then she will look in the direction of the treats.

This is how her stuff toys look like now.

Her first stuff toy still has his filling
Her second stuff toy she chose this one herself has a arm, two eyes and stuffing that is missing. I tried to repair it…
Her third stuff toy she also chose this one. It is the other lions twin. Well he lost his stuffing and eye.

Hallo Ogies: 23 August 2021

Good day everyone,

How are you doing today?

These photos of Ogies was taken on 2 May 2021. She has this habit of sleeping with her eyes open. Sometimes it freaks people out because it looks like she is dead. You must watch closely to even see her breathing then….

We have not taken that many photos the past month. It was raining a lot and we did not play outside that much. I hope to take much more photos with my camera of Willow when the days get warmer and we spend some more time outdoors. At the moment most of the photos of Willow is taken with my cellphone.

At the moment I try to take Willow out on drives and we go to Sonstraaldam and walk around the dam a few times.

She loves to go for drives, I cannot open the car door when she is around she gets in and it is a struggle to get her out.

These photos was taken with my cellphone.

Sniff sniff… Mom went shopping without me. I smell treats….
Who went with her…. OOOh I smell Grandpa….
Maybe if I am good she will take me for a drive….
Weekly outing to Sonstraaldam….
I am so curious….
Okay mommy we can go home now. I am tired…

Willow Shenanigans: 1 July 2021

Good day friends,

Willow is a bit frustrated today. It has been 4 days since she can roam free. Due to the rain, I had to keep her indoors and only take her outside supervised. She loves water, which makes it hard to keep the house clean and dry.

Willow loves to take mud baths. When she gets a gap, she will go and play in the mud. It is a very messy affair.
I see that it will only be cloudy today Willow and I can go play outside later.

Willow has also found the toilet brush, and she carries it around everywhere. I have to lock the bathroom now. She also found out if you pull on the toilet paper roll it the paper comes with you… I forgot to take a photo of it friends, so sorry.

Poor Willow is very confused today. She is being kept on the other side of the house. She can go to Granddad, but mom is in her office working, and there are unknown men in our home. They are installing the fiber today.

Mommy please can I come inside?
Keeping a eye on mommy.

The following photos were taken on 27 May 2021.

Shadow VS Willow

At first Shadow was affraid of Willow. The first evening we managed to get Shadow and Willow on the couch. Both sleeping. The same last night. I was so proud of the two.

I was very surprised to see Shadow sleeping on the couch during the night, while Willow slept on the bed.

During the night something changed, this mirning Shadow had so much confidence and for the first time he hissed and growl at Willow.

Now the roles has changed. Willow is very cautious of Shadow. Shadow hiss at Willow and then Willow retreats. Shadow sit on the corners of the furniture and as soon as Willow wants to pass he hiss and growl.

I do hope they sort out their differences because both are loved. Both of them like to play and if they can just get along they will realize it.

So  we are keeping our fingers crossed.

Loving my guardians bed rest….

Shadow is really taking advantage of the time I spend in bed.

Shadow keeping me company while I am reading.

I moved on to the couch but he is still sleeping.

Time to chance position

I am so grateful for all the joy my four legged children bring me.

Photo’s taken in 2015 in my garden…. Part 3

Yes Ruby is still in love with her sticks and upgraded to palm leaves. She enjoyed playing with the sticks and Palm leaves while my dad and I cleaned out our garden.  She still enjoys playing with her ball but due to all the new dogs in our street I cannot go play with her out front. Now we must play in the garden and that is not so good on the grass. I also started taking her to the beach, but after a dog attacked her on one of our walks she is not very sociable. It will take a while for her to trust other dogs again… She is also very protective over me. I am not always sure if this is a good or bad thing….
