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:

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
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 you much!   Give daddy and Livy some licks for me!
