Hey boyz and gals, it's Inky here.
As you know, Saturday week ago we met up with Lili Lambert on Ocean Grove beach. We wanted to show you some more pictures of the gathering as it was an absolute stunning day. Here is me with the Lilmeister...
and as you can see, Lil' was still a little fuzz butt then which I had to suss out of course...
Then it was time to go for a dip in the ocean
and chase some wildlife (I think they are called whales)...
No session on the beach of course is complete without the traditional seaweed kerfuffle...
or in fact, a good game of ball...
We met lots of other doganauts being on the beach for the same reason as us...
It truly was a great day to sniff butt...
It was so warm that, if it hadn't been for the ocean, we would have thought to be in the desert...
and we were ever so pleased when refreshment were being served...
The following day, Sunday, we went down to another beach further along The Great Ocean Road and did the same thing all over again: run wild, go for a swim, sniff butt.
I think it was then that Lili decided it was time to shed her luscious locks in order to be able to engage in more heat-generating activity with us. So on Friday, it was Airecut Day for young Lil' at our house.
We weren't allowed in the torture chamber for all the while Lili was in there but we certainly celebrated with a traditional After-Airecut-ceremony when she came out...
Here is her "before" shot from the other day on the beach...
and the "after" shot
Well, we can say, that Lili is truly one of us now. Welcome to the club of Trimmed Fuzzbutts!!!
We've also received a couple of awards over the past two weeks.
Our very first-ever award we received from our dear friend Noah
It says: 'your blog is like a pearl...rare, delicate & charming'.
Thank you Noah, it is very kind of you indeed to think about us this way.
The second one was handed down to us from the world famous Maggie and Mitch
"When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching. If you have never stolen any food, you must have been a really good pup! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their blogs."
Well, when it comes to food stealing, I have to say that I am an Angel.
I have my Pinkies trained to bring the food to me, basically whatever I want, I just need to look at them and they bring it to wherever I am resting.
However, my friend Molly... we'll she was obviously not brought up with the fine manners I have learnt from an early age.
Apparently she spent the first twelve months of her life snatching pieces of toast that where chucked at a group of Airedales all living at the same address, with everybody out to get the most pieces. Can you imagine the carnage??
So no fine manners there. Sadly, this trait is still very much evident in her.
So on one occasion, it was our family xmas get-together to be precise, our Aussie grandma was holding a canapé ready to eat it herself when Molly came diving from across the room to snatch it right out of her hand before it could enter grandma's mouth. Needless to say that Molly just gazzobbled the canapé with no crumbs left to spare.
Well, that's what a barbaric upbringing will do to you is all I can say.
For both awards we'd like to tag
4. Ellie and Baz
if you have already been tagged, ah what the heck... you could play again?!
Lots of love, INKY
