We Haz Puppeh!

Tuesday night was spent with a good mate Dragon, and a bunch of his friends. It was a night of good food (including a couple of kilos of prawns), good music and lots of beer and laughter 😉 .
We went for a walk on Wednesday morning, then  picked up our new puppy on the way out of town. Yes, a puppy 🙂

One of JJ’s dogs had pups. She is a Blue eyed Staffy cross. The father had Bull Terrier and Dane in him.
We picked this pup up because his coat blew me away, and he came up to both Tina and I when we first saw him. He sat between our feet while the other pups wandered around. He picked us really.
Going by his build, he should be a solid, stocky thing when he matures. But check his coat. It’s almost feral pig colours!

His name, after 24 hours of decision making, and after nearly picking the following:
…we decided on…
Floyd. You know, pigs on the wing, and all that.

So, check the pics of the pup and Tina and Jack and me and Jimmy the 4WD and the fire pig and the ocean and…

Taken Wednesday morning:

A big trawler, the ‘Roper Therese’ moored in the Endeavour Harbour.

The dorys and traditional canoes used in past Cooks landing re-enactments.

On Wednesday afternoon the weather turned a little gloomy. Not gloomy, just a bit squally.
The first photo is Mt Cook, looking West at the South East face. The mountain attracted its own cloud formation.
The other pics are looking South East down the coast towards Archer Point, Mt Amos, Cedar Bay and Bloomfield. Compare these with the earlier one of Tina and the dogs.

And just because the new pup is too cute, here are two more of it sleeping off a big feed.

    Awww, look at that big fat belly on him. Bub got some pets this week too which he’s excited about. He got two hermit crabs and he thinks they are hilarious ( when they actually wake up and do stuff)
