His Mumma

Other dogs and naughty children

Favorite Toy:
Bones and firewood

Favorite Food:
Anything Mumma could sneak to me under the table

Favorite Walk:
Right behind his Mumma

Best Tricks:
Mumma, she was my best trick. I danced with my tail and I farted and no one ever blamed me.

Arrival Story:
We moved to a big house with a big yard and Mumma said she would feel much better with a dog there. We wanted a lab as we had heard they were very good with children, little did we know they would be just perfect with mothers. We went to so called breeders and didn't like what we saw. In the end we bought a $40.00 puppy from the buy, sell and exchange. He was perfect! He very soon became a big part of our family. Whether playing in the garden with our son or just laying back, we loved him. Him and Mumma went to obedience training and they turned up on the first day, a young woman in doc martins, black jeans and a black t shirt with a snotty nosed four year old at her side and they left top of their class. He was the best dog a girl could ever have.

I have missed him so much since he had to go. I miss his happiness to see me, and my never ending shadow, I swear when I go out on the farm he is there with me. He was good with children, tolerated other dogs, although he knew when it was time to go to bed or just fell where he walked. He went to many parties and on camping expeditions and really just enjoyed whatever life threw at him. We moved to the country when he was nine years old and while he developed a new lease of life, I knew my time with him was limited. He took it in his stride, seeking out heat in winter and cool in summer. If anything ever bothered him a nap was the best way to fix it. When he was real old, he knew that some of our son's mate should'nt visit when we are not here, they were so scared afterwards, they asked if he would bite them, I told them I didn't know what he would do when I wasn't her He now lies under a jasmine bush near my bedroom window. The hole he left in Mumma's heart will never be filled!

24 sleeps!

I, of all pups, know how hard it is to relive a moment that seems to have flown away on a distant breeze and left.

I moved to my forever home with the best chances an ageing dog ever had, a Mumma who was not so damn sure of herself (but knew her love for me was infinite), a Dadda who would work himself into the grave(luckily he got a second chance), and a child( who had too many disabitilies to discribe) I had known for a very long time (whilst a bit of a tease, has a heart of pure gold), a new puppy(who has done me proud!) and a kitten(who according to Mumma is just a "Damn Cat!"). We all did the best we could!!!!!

In just 24 sleeps time, my family will come home.

Not only has Mumma buried me in her heart, but I have stayed at my forever home this whole time. Whilst they come to the land we all call home every single day, Mumma can not wait for the day we all go home forever.

Mumma, Dadda, Abigail and her master, the new young whipper snapper of a pup and puss puss are all coming home in 24 days.

An all Kiwi artist launch this song in the first night 06/05/2005 ,my family slept for their first time in our forever home, and we wonder if he wrote it just for us

Tonight I am feeling for you
Under the state of a strange land
You have sacrificed much to be here
‘there but for grace…’ as I offer my hand
Welcome home, i bid you welcome, i bid you welcome

Welcome home from the bottom of my heart
Out here on the edge
The empire is fading by the day
And the world is so weary in war
I know we’ll find that new way

So welcome home, see i made a space for you now
Welcome home from the bottom of my heart
Keep it coming now - keep it coming now
You’ll find most of us here with our hearts wide open
Keep it coming now - keep on coming now

There’s a woman with her hands trembling - haere mai
And she sings with a mountain’s memory - haere mai

There’s a cloud the full length of these isles
Just playing chase with the sun
And it’s black and it’s white and it’s wild
All the colours are one

So welcome home, i bid you welcome, I bid you welcome
Welcome home from the bottom of my heart

Welcome home, see i made a space for you now
Welcome home from the bottom of my heart
From the bottom of my heart

I know wild horses would not keep my very special family from coming home, to the place they belong. Every member of my family knows it is where they belong (no special contracts or terms).

There are no hidden clauses, no special terms apply, you just "want and have" to be part of this family until you feel you have nothing more that you feel you have to give. Even after that you probably have a whole lot more!

Can't wait for you to come home, my family, for all that you are and are not, I lie in wait, for the day you come home.

You will revive your dreams and your vision, and you and I will be proud of that. Families don't just grow lands, they grow people. For all the hardship you have faced, there will be a million times good day that you and I wish would last forever.

Best news, we move home in 95 days.

I have felt so displaced since we moved away.

I have really missed the place we belong, everything inside me screams every morning that I want to go home!

I have been sent blessings since the earthquakes.

A workmate who says every day how much she loves me, if this had never happened I would have never been sent her. I realise my job is to show her motherly love and make her welcome, but I know her talents are wasted and that she needs to reach for her own stars.

She is a business woman, not a mother like me. She could be very hard and yet in my presence, she seems to melt and I feel proud of her.

People are starting to semi understand what has happened and that we are so blessed, we acted so fast, you would have been proud.

However, for all these wonderful things that are happening, in my moments, the minutes of the day that belong to me, I just wanna go home.

Our home!, a place of healing, acceptance and love. Where you and I ran in the long grass and sat by the fire in the evenings. The place where, if you are not laughing and living life at a slow pace, you would be missing the point!

I can not wait for the day we move home, I will stand in my beautiful house and look out the door towards you and remember we are exactly where God wants us to be.

I still miss you every day
Love Mumma


I had to leave the land we both loved so much, but not for- long!

We have moved to Scott and Amanda's house. It has broken my heart.

I moved down here in true Granny Clampet style, sitting on my commode, on the back of the truck.

I don't like it here, the house is worse than ours. Whilst it is modernised, it is a wierd lay out and not as you would have liked it. I don't feel the contented relaxation here, and I do not love the neighbours as family, like we did at home.

Those gun shots we heard in the distance are right over the back fence. There is no moving of the grass from you as you only do that at home.

My heart can not wait for the day I moved back to our home and closer to the grave of the dog I love.

I am very sorry but we moved you to lie under the big tree. I know thats where you would lie and be so happy. Dadda said it was the best spot for you, near the big tree where you will never be disturbed again.

The new house will be absolutely beautiful and I look forward to seeing you there.

Love Mumma
