Hi Mom - I'm Coming Home
Found this email from Checkers when I got up this morning -
Hey Mom - I wanted to get this off to you before the plane takes off - not sure if I'll get service in the air!!!!!
Rambo, Lady and I are headed back to the states...... we've had a blast! But Rambo and I have a bit of a hangover - hope you don't mind! Those Aussies like their beer!
Lady has been obsessed with Scooby's illness so I'm not sure if she had such a great time pawting as we did, but she sure was happy to be with Scooby. She was by his side 24/7 - going to the vet and keeping a close eye on his bleeding. Apparently he will have to have come changes in his diet! But I'm sure his loving mom will keep a close watch on that just as you do for me. He is wearing a collar to keep from licking himself - poor guy - so it was hard for him to kiss Lady - but she is very understanding.
This surfing is incredible. Suzi is magnificent - I bet she could win a contest doing this. She said I was a natural but I think it was probably just "love talk" - But, just in case I really am a good, can I get a boogie board when I get home?
Talia was so excited - she was bouncing off the walls and keeping the neighbors and their dogs up. BOL - Rambo thought that was hilarious and egged her on...even chimed in occasionally. You'll be glad to know that Suzuki and I behaved and did NOT encourage their bad behavior...we were too busy being in love. Miss Shannon finally got them to settle down by putting them to bed - TOGETHER - and they got to go to the big human bed. Cool huh?
Miss Shannon was quite the chef - The menu for the evening was:
Dinner: A serving of biscuits each A hamburger from Hungry Jacks each (known as Burger King in the USA) - yes I ate the beef - but I'm doing okay! Ice Cream Cake (one slice each) and a large variety of treats throughout the evening Breakfast: Toast Bacon Eggs Tahlia also had a side dish of mouse - I'm not sure why they served mouse as I never saw any cats!
Rambo was checking things out and saw what Midget was posting - he was not thrilled that she was "taking over" so I would advise her to hide away for a bit upon his return.
This kangaroo came up trying to tease Scooby since he was "indisposed" -
But don't worry, Rambo and I took care of him - this is a picture of him after the encounter!
I understand that TANK has doubts about our visit - tell him we will talk upon my return - I'll try to Tweet him in a bit.
All in all it was a delightful week-end - although I think that Miss Shannon is totally "pupped out" - She probably did way too much with that bad back
I will have more pics for you when I get home and I'm sure Miss Shannon will send you some too.
See you later.....love you much! Give daddy and Livy some licks for me!
