A Christmas Surprise


Introducing 'Cricket', the newest member of our household.
Mr Roo brought her home on christmas eve - a complete surpise to me!


She is a Border Collie pup, born on 23rd October.
A little ball of energy and mischief!
The other day, she worked out how to unzip her dog cushion - there were bits of white stuffing all over the verandah :)


A sheep dog should have a sheep (even if it is a pink fluffy one!)


Dash (12) is being very patient with Cricket.
The dogs were allowed to come in for a while (as long as they stayed on the towel) We have red volcanic soil here, there are muddy footprints right around the verandah.
Their beds are on the verandah.
As you may know, we have had an enormous amount of rain here in south east Queensland (for about three weeks now) and there are lots of flooded areas. We are fine, living on the Blackall Range, and our house is elevated (four steps). Our yard is very waterlogged and quite squishy underfoot. I think the weather is finally clearing up - it will be nice to see the sunshine again.
I haven't done much sewing in the past few days....I've been a little distracted.......

Cheerio for now,
Sandi x

Oh what a little cutie! Border Collies are such beautiful and intelligent dogs.
I hope you get some sunshine to dry things out up there very very soon.

He is so cute when sleeping. If Dasher wants a break - there is always a home for him here!

A friend who lives near Twin Waters said he could almost fish of his back balcony. Apparently there is mould issues etc down that way....

Send some of it down this way - but only a little - the garden is a tad dry...

Oh gosh I am jealous!!! You have two beautiful border collies!! I remember Jake, when it would rain, would get so muddy he'd lose his white fur! lol such wonderful funny dogs they are!

She is so cute. They look quite settled on the towel, although Dash still seems to be keeping one eye on Cricket. I'm glad the rain has decided to stop for a while.

Awwww Sandi she's just adorable - lucky you!!!! We've got a border collie too, his name's Bundy (or Bun-doggy as he's become lol). He just LOVES all this rain, he runs around the yard like a loony, especially if there's thunder too .... he REALLY loves that LOL.
Hugs,
Joy :o)

What a lovely Christmas surprise, very cute.
I was hoping it was going to stop raining today, but it started again this afternoon. Fingers crossed that the forecast is correct and the next couple of days will be drier. Not looking forward to the humidity though if the sun comes out and the temp rises dramatically.
