Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY FOR YESTERDAY.

Its an extremely overcast day today but thankfully no rain or wind and not too cold, so it could make a good run and play day for you.

We had to replace the TV decoder yesterday, I can't complain really, the old one had worked hard for quite a few years, but we will get it repaired. The new one is much better, it has a lot more features, but its taking time to learn what does what and what button to press to do whatever. I'll get there in the end.

Mia had a bit of a runny nose this morning so your mum told her to get some toilet tissue from the bathroom, Mia had taken the whole roll and came back in with a load of toilet tissue in her hands. Shakes my head. Your mum thought it was highly funny.

Molly was acting like a big puppy this morning, wanting to play not only with Spud but Hobo as well. She's nearly three years old and still acts like a puppy, but then again so did you, you always loved playing. Remember how I'd throw things for you to chase? We really had some good fun didn't we my boy? How I wish I had those times over again.

Well my boy its that time again, time for you to go play and have some more fun.

I will always love and miss you Merlin, the best friend I ever had.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin and I always will

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

This will have to be short and sweet as our TV decoder was destroyed last night by a power serge, so we have contacted a TV installer to fit a new decoder, he's due and minute.

We had a very bad storm last night, which caused a power serge and as I mentioned destroyed our TV decoder. Pain in the neck. However, the storm has cleared but still very overcast and quite cold.

Anyway my boy its that time again, time to go play and have some fun with your buddies.

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good afternoon Merlin my very sweet and wonderful big boy.

Its a really nasty day today, pouring with rain, but thankfully not too cold and no wind. All the pack are indoors at the moment, Molly is under my desk, Spud was on your mums bed, Hobo is on the couch and Bella laying somewhere in the house. Its not a good run and play day for you my boy, its more of a snuggle up and fall asleep day. I woke up at 5am and made the tea and coffee, then when everyone had left by 8am I went back to bed to catch up on sleep then finally woke up at 11am. I really needed that extra sleep, I was tired.

Its a long weekend, we have a public holiday on Monday and Melissa said that business at her shop was very quiet yesterday as many people go away for the weekend, I hope it picks up for her today. I think though that when summer comes she is going to be very busy with tourists. She provides good food at a fair and reasonable price, she's not a rip off like some café's are, all of her ingredients are fresh and of good quality every day. She deserves to do well.

Well Merlin its that time again my boy, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love and miss you so very much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its quite a beautiful day today, its nice and sunny and quite warm and thankfully no wind, although over the weekend its going to rain. But today would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy, you could run and play and jump and chase all that you wanted to or chill out on the little hill by the fence that you liked so much, watching the world go by. In my minds eye I can still see you sitting there, so proud and so regal, so majestic, my perfect boy, my perfect best friend.

Molly and Spud are doing their thing play fighting as usual, but it is nice to see them run and play. In reality Molly is still a puppy, if Spud doesn't chase her, she jumps on him so they end up running around or play fighting. I wish I had their energy.

Mia was in a whining mood this morning, she didn't want to get out of bed and she let everyone know it. I was glad when she went to play school. Its a long weekend this week as Monday is a public holiday, and at least your mum gets a bit of a rest. Only problem is, Mia's dad is here from tonight right through to Monday. I can just about stomach him until Sunday evening, let alone until Monday evening. I am so surprised that Mike my son thought he was a nice person, me and your mum saw right through him the first time we met him. He's as fake as a 9 Rand bank note.

Well my boy its that time again, time for you to go play some more with your buddies.

Never forget Merlin just how much I love and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a nice bright day today, not a cloud in the sky, no wind and a bit warmer then yesterday, I think it would make a good run and play day for you my sweet boy, you could run and play and jump and chase Spud all that you wanted to.

Molly was being a pain in the neck last night, I was woken at 4:30 am by Bella growling at Molly, Molly was trying to be friends with Bella, but Bella simply doesn't like Molly whatsoever. Molly showed signs that she wanted to go outside, so I got up and let her out into the drying yard. When she finally came inside she settled down again and went to sleep. Because of being woken up so early I overslept until 8:30 am and everyone had left the house, it was sooooooooo nice and quiet, even Mia didn't wake me up before she went to play school, so I don't know if she was grizzling or not. Bliss.

Finally a bit of good news, the people handling my works pension have finally decided to pay me my pension, albeit 3 months late. Although instead of paying my pension directly into my bank account they have sent me a cheque, they were contacted and asked why they are sending me a cheque, they replied that I needed to complete a bankers mandate, they were sold in no uncertain terms one was sent to them, finally they managed to find the mandate in my file, so hopefully from now on my pension will be paid into my bank account. I'm not impressed with their service at all. But at least I am getting my money finally.

Well my boy its that time again, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Never forget Merlin, I love and miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a nice and bright sunny day, not a cloud in the sky, but its extremely cold, its cold enough for snow. This morning at 6am it was freezing cold, winter is here with a vengeance. But it would make a good run and play day for you, you could run around chasing Spud to keep warm, he needs chasing. Bella refuses to go outside unless she really has to. I must admit, I hate winter, its too cold, my hands and fingers are freezing, so much so I might put a pair of gloves on.

Mia was grizzling this morning, it appears she has a bit of a head cold and her nose is bunged up. Mind you I don't feel too good myself, my throat is a bit scratchy so I might have a cold coming on too.

I'm looking at photographs of you as a baby, oh my you were so sweet and pretty and then you grew up into a handsome, perfect in every way big boy.

On Dogster you have been given lots and lots of honours, to be honest I've lost count as to how many. You are such an amazing boy and so many people have been so kind to you as well as me. I am so proud of you Merlin, more then I can ever put into words. My perfect boy, my perfect best friend.

Well my boy, its that time again, time for you to go play and have some more fun.

I love and miss you so much Merlin, don't forget to keep a place for me when my turn comes to cross the bridge.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

MERLIN MERLIN MERLIN.

Good morning Merlin my very special boy. Your diary has been chosen yet again, I am so proud of you my boy.

Its very overcast at the moment and extremely cold, but thankfully no wind and no rain, yet. Last night was even colder and even though the wall heater was on it didn't seem to make any impression on the cold in the bedroom. I had to tell Molly to get off my bed so I could get in it, she got off in a bit of a huff. I got in bed and called her to jump up with me, but no she didn't want to, although when I woke up in the middle of the night she was laying by my feet on my bed. I remember very well how huffy you got when I told you to get off my bed , you'd give me the dirtiest of looks when I had to physically push you off. Oh boy what a boy you were. I don't want to put the mockers on it, but it looks like the sun is breaking through.

When your mum went to pick up Mia from play school yesterday, her little friend Jake shouted “HELLO NANA!” Mia immediately shouted “ MY NANA, MY NANA.” Highly amusing. Mia loves your mum so much Merlin, as your mum loves her. I must admit Mia has given your mum and I a new lease on life. As you know Merlin a couple of years ago I was in deep depression, I didn't care if I lived or died, but Mia lit the spark I once had, just like you did when I went into a deep depression the first time, you saved my life Merlin, your love, loyalty and devotion pulled me through. When you crossed the bridge I went into depression again, I never had my best friend with me, again I didn't care if I lived or died, but Molly and Mia coming into the world gave me something to live for again. No I'm not depressed again Merlin far from it, but I do miss you so much my boy.

Its that time again Merlin, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love you so much and missing you more then I can say.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful big boy. I hope the weather where you are is nicer then it is here. Yesterday was quite nice, your mum and I went looking at cars again, then later on it began to get colder and colder. Last night was very cold and was raining most of the night, it stopped for a little while this morning then it began raining again, its stopped at the moment but the clouds are so full of water I think it will start to rain again very soon. Thankfully there is no wind at the moment otherwise it would be horrendous. The weather forecast for today is extremely cold as low as 7 degrees Centigrade, its cold enough to snow on the mountains. I let the pack out but they don't stay out very long before they are barking to come inside. Last night I let the pack out before bedtime, Bella literally poked her head out of the door, turned around and went and laid down on the couch again. Poor old Aunty Bella is probably really feeling the cold now, I know how she feels.

Mia had a bit of a whine this morning, your mum was getting dressed and her mum was taking a shower, I simply ignored her crying and after a while she stopped, seeing as I wasn't going to pander to her whims. But overall she is getting better thankfully.

Well my boy its that time again, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Please Merlin, never forget just how much I love and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant. I hope that you are having a great time running and chasing and jumping and playing and having lots of fun with your buddies. You deserve it my boy.

Its a much brighter day today, but its quite windy and very cold, none of the pack wants to stay outside for very long, perhaps its the wind chill. Yesterday Bella was laying fast asleep on my bed in the nice warm sun light coming in through the windows. The past week or so has been extremely cold, so cold I have been wearing woollen gloves indoors!!!! I really don't like winter, I think I prefer the heat of summer to this cold. Its nasty, I don't like going outside when its windy as the wind with the wind chill factor burns my ears.

Mia is still behaving herself. I wonder if the real Mia has been kidnapped and a replacement put in her place. When she behaves she really is a delight, but when she starts whining and grizzling she is a real pain in the neck.

Well my boy its that time again, time for you to go play and I think your mum and I are going to look at some new cars.

I love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my amazing gentle giant.

Its another overcast and very cold day, but thankfully there is no wind and it looks like the low cloud is moving away, so it could be a good run and play day for you my boy. Mia is outside with her dad and as always Molly isn't too far away from Mia. Spud is outside as is Hobo, but Aunty Bella is indoors keeping warm.

I am really wondering why Mia is becoming better behaved lately, she doesn't throw as many tantrums as she did, but she still has that mischievous look in her eyes. Mia was one very special little girl without a doubt. Mia absolutely loves your mum, when your mum comes home from shopping Mia shouts “NANA NANA NANA,” and runs up to her for a cuddle. Mia still calls me “Dad Dad,” she can't quite manage Granddad, but its still sweet. I do tease Mia quite a bit and she ends up pointing at me and saying “Dad Dad is naughty,” which of course makes me chuckle. I hope I am half the Granddad to Mia as my Granddad was to me. He was an amazing man Merlin, and I know he would love you, he loved horses and dogs of all breeds and mixed breeds. My Granny never knew what he was coming home with. One day he came home with a huge female Mastiff, she was a big as a small pony. Granny rolled her eyes and shook her head.

Well my boy, its that time again, time for you to go play and have some fun.

I love and miss you so much Merlin, please never forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy.
