Back in the real world

Here is another face that is easy to love.

Who put that fence there? how's a dog supposed to know what to bark at?

Its Tuesday, Vicki and I are in Adelaide, the treatment has begun, time and prayers for its success are what we need now.
Today there was discussion about the treatment for the next three months, some manipulation and a decision to start the exercise program next week.
We had an uneventful trip from Wudinna to Adelaide, 2.30 pm to 8.30 pm, with Vicki’s Citroen loaded to the hilt, it was eventful for one member of the party, Timmy, Vicki’s dog, his longest trip in a car prior to this 6 hour marathon had been about an hour, consequently by the time we got to Adelaide he was a bit twitchy.
For a dog that has lived his life on a farm the city and then the confines of the unit were a bit strange, but he has settled down now and seems quite content.
Before leaving Wudinna I thought a short trip down memory lane might be good, some of you will recall the orphaned lambs that were bottle reared earlier in 2008, here they are now in all their adult glory, They would have NOTHING to do with Rex for a while after he shore themm but apart from that one hiccup they are typical pets (pests???) they follow Tim's lead and chase the car down the driveway, play head butting games and come home to sleep most nights.

Hi Pete, (Happy New Year) that's one good looking dog!

Now that's a cute canine, indeed. As for sheep, those photos are appealing, but sheep are stupid animals and I really can't find any redeeming qualities about them, apart from their wool. I don't even like their meat...too much of it when we were on the farm.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Vicki and the rest of the family, Peter.

Dave said...

You're all in my prayers... Vicki, Rex and you to keep strong Peter!

Happy New Years my friend...!

Yes that is one very cute puppy! Hopefully he won't get too stressed by the lack of freedom for a bit! The sheep are very cute too! I was getting worried at first that you would say you all ate them or something! Phew!

Big hugs to you and Vicki, you know my thoughts are with you every day! Take care of yourselves and keep smiling xxxxxx

a return to good health. It has been far too long since you began this horror ride. You will know Adelaide pretty well by now Peter and
