My sweet and wonderful Gentle Giant

Good morning my boy, I hope you are having lots and lots of fun with your buddies.

Its another very hot day today, not a cloud in the sky and no wind, not even a slight breeze. Molly and Spud went outside and played but now they are extremely subdued, I guess its because its too hot to play fight. In this hot weather I don't want to do anything, I suppose its the same for the pack, well Bella and Hobo don't do anything at the best of times.

In 20 days I officially retire and get my UK state pension, I'm still sorting out my works pension which is a pain in the neck, they want to know the ins and outs of everything, all I want is my pension for goodness sake. Anyway, it will get sorted out sooner then later.

I am still looking at buying a new car, I've narrowed it down, I don't really need a 4 wheel drive any more, I want a nice comfortable car that's safe for everyone who rides in it, and cheap on fuel.

Anyway my boy I guess its time for you to go play some more with your buddies.

I love you and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

MERLIN MERLIN MERLIN, YOUR DIARY HAS MADE THE ACTIVE POSTERS LIST. WELL DONE MY BOY I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another cloudless day, with no wind, but thankfully its not as hot today, so it would make a good run and play day for you. Molly and Spud are outside, although they aren't running about going bonkers, why I have no idea, perhaps they are fed up play fighting, although I doubt it. I've no idea where Bella and Hobo are, poor old aunty Bella is feeling her age now she has problems getting up. As long as she isn't in pain, I'll let her live her life out, but your mum expects Bella to be dead every time she comes home.

I've got a photograph of you running towards me after I called you from your little hill near the fence, you've got such a lovely look on your face as you came running towards me as if to say, “I'm coming Daddy.” I do miss you so much my boy,

I just had a quick snack of cold roast beef left over from my Sunday Dinner, hmm it is so nice. I remember how much you loved English tea with one sugar and a little milk, you would lap it up, and I am sure if I let you, you would have had a second cup. We were such a good team together weren't we my boy? We had so much fun together you and I, although you liked playing with Mike my son as well, it was like watching two puppies playing together. Wonderful memories my boy, absolutely wonderful.

Well I guess its time that you went and played with your buddies.

I love and Miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my ever so sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very hot day today, there is a light breeze but its not really cooling anything down. It was supposed to rain yesterday but it didn't, but being overcast did cool things off a bit. Last night was another hot night, but amazingly it didn't wake me up so I got a fair nights sleep which is unusual.

Your mum isn't very well, she's got a tummy bug which she caught from Mia. I gave her some of my stomach medication which kills off all the bad bugs, but not the good ones. So hopefully they will help your mum. Whenever I get stomach cramps which are so bad I'm in agony, those stomach capsules along with my strong pain killers usually does the trick.

Molly and Spud are outside doing their usual play fighting, I really don't know where they get the energy. Spud is still an overgrown puppy and as for Molly, I don't think she will ever leave puppy hood behind. Spud hurts Molly so Molly attacks Spud and it all starts all over again, its catch 22.

I've got to sort out my works pension which is a pain in the neck, but I'll get there In the end with your mums help. She understands these thing much better then I do.

I suppose its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I do love you and miss you so much Merlin, never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its quite overcast at the moment and there is a gentle breeze, its supposed to rain this morning, I hope it does and cools everything off. Last night was awfully hot, I kept waking up during the night soaked in sweat, when I came out of the shower this morning I began to sweat again. It really is nasty Merlin, I don't think that you would like to run and play today. Even Molly and Spud are somewhat subdued this morning. Yesterday I went outside and even the wind was hot, which I suspect came off of the Kalahari desert. As I said, nasty.

|Your mum picked up Mia from play school early yesterday and went to the beach, apparently Mia had the time of her life there, she was laughing as she splashed in the sea, really enjoying herself. There's nothing quite like a child's laughter.

I hope it begins to rain soon, my desk fan is having very little effect even when its flat out. I really am fed up with this heat Merlin, its got to be one of the hottest summers ever. NASTY NASTY NASTY!!!!

I suppose its time that you went and had some more fun with your buddies my boy.

I love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my ever so sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another extremely hot day, no cloud and what wind there is it a hot berg wind, its even nastier then yesterday. Molly and Spud aren't even playing, Hobo as always is chilling out under a tree some where, I have no idea where Bella is. Poor old Aunty Bella really looks old now, she has problems getting up when she lays down. As long as she isn't in pain we'll leave her to live out her life. Strangely enough occasionally she has a burst of energy and plays with Hobo, or tries to, poor old Hobo wonders what's going on and rolls onto his back surrendering.

Little Mia isn't too well at the moment again, they poor little mite is always unwell, it could actually be the heat, I know I don't feel too good when its this hot. Her mum Melissa has taken her to the doctor this morning, hopefully Mia will be feeling a lot better very soon. It breaks my heart when she isn't well.

Your mum isn't too well either, she's got a horrible cold, Molly knows something is wrong and follows her everywhere, just like you did with me when I was ill. If it wasn't for you I know I'd be dead right now, you saved my life Merlin for which I will be forever grateful.

I suppose its time that you went and had some more fun with your buddies.

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

MERLIN MERLIN MERLIN, YOU HAVE DONE IT AGAIN, YOUR DIARY IS ONE OF TODAY'S PICKS. WELL DONE MY BOY, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.


Good afternoon Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant. Your mum and I were awake at 4:30 am this morning, I made her a cup of coffee and I made myself a cup of tea and stayed up. Anyway at 8:30 when everyone left I decided to go back to sleep as I was so tired, I only meant to sleep for about an hour, anyway, 3 1/2 hours later I woke up. I must have been more tired then I realised.

Its a very hot day again my boy, but at least there is a wind which does help a little. The front door is wide open and my desk fan is on so its helping to keep me a little bit cooler. I don't think today would make a good run and play day for you my boy.

Do you remember when I came home after work on a Saturday morning and I'd go and take a nap for a little while, when you though I had slept enough you would come and jump on me? All 100 pounds of you landed on my tummy, knocking the wind out of me. You were no lightweight Merlin, I know you wanted you and I to play but there were better ways of waking me up.

Mike my son got some new furniture for his room in the UK, only problem is, he has to build it up himself and he has no tools there. I bet he is cussing and swearing, I know he hated those flat packs.

Well my boy I suppose its time for you t ogo play and have some more fun and games with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very hot day today, very little cloud and no wind. Its really uncomfortable, its nasty. Even Molly and Spud are subdued and aren't doing their usual play fighting, Bella is indoors under my desk, I have no idea where Hobo is, probably parking off under a tree somewhere. It wouldn't make a good run and play day for you my boy, its far too hot.

I can't remember if I told you, your mum got her little car repaired after the gate smashed against her door when we had high winds. The panel beaters have done a very good job. Your mum didn't claim against her insurance, she paid for it herself as she didn't want to lose her no claims bonus.

It appears Mike my son is getting on quite well in the UK, a young lady and her mum have really taken to Mike, as well as a friend of the young lady. The young lady's mum cooks Mike's meals for him, she really feeds him well and she even said she enjoys his company in the evening's. It looks like your mum and I raised Mike right and I can honestly say I am very proud of him. I don't know what it is about Mike, but everyone who meets him likes him, but then again he is a very likeable lad. I just wish he wasn't so far away.

I am getting more and more use to this new keyboard, although I sometimes hit the wrong keys, or hit multiple keys with my fat fingers.

I suppose its time for you to go play some more with your buddies.

I do love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my ever so sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Thankfully its very overcast with no wind whatsoever today, thankfully its a lot cooler then it has been this past week or so, much more comfortable but still very humid. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy as long as you drank lots of water.

Next month I officially retire, I get my UK state pension as well as my work pension which is going to be extremely welcome. It wouldn't be much in UK at UK prices, but here its a very good pension and worth a lot more because of the weakness of the South African Rand. Great stuff as my pensions are guaranteed, its not like I am working for someone and have the risk of being laid off or retrenched. No doubt I am going to spoil Mia with toys and chocolate. Her mum is going to hate me.

Do you remember when you were a tiny puppy and we would go for walks among the tree's on the property? Your little legs could just keep up with me, sometimes when I looked around you were running along and you had a look on your face that said, “Wait for me Daddy, I'm only little.” Oh my Merlin, you were such a beautiful baby boy, then you grew up to be a handsome and beautiful adult perfect in every way. The best friend I ever had, you were never really very far from me, always following me everywhere I went. How I miss those days Merlin.

Well I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin and I always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.

WELL DONE MY BOY, YOUR DIARY HAS BEEN CHOSEN AS ONE OF TODAY'S PICKS. WELL DONE MY BOY I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!!

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another extremely hot day again, I just let the pack out, Molly and Spud did their usual play fighting, Hobo went and laid down under a tree and Bella came straight back indoors after doing her ablutions. There's no cloud's in the sky and no wind, on top of that its also very humid. Again I don't think it would make a good run and play day for you my boy. I wouldn't mind betting that Molly and Spud are going to come indoors sooner then later. I've got my desk fan going and I must admit it does help a bit.

There was a dog howling this morning, it was starting to get very annoying, thankfully its now stopped.

Molly had a cuddle up again last night, she was laid out with her back pressed against mine. I don't mind in the winter when its quite cold, but she is so hot and in this heat its quite uncomfortable. Thankfully after a little while she got off and laid on the floor. Remember how you use to climb up on my bed and lay across my legs? You were so heavy you use to cut the bloody supply to my legs, you really didn't like it when I told you to get off. When you laid with your back to mine, if I were awake I'd stroke your beautiful head and tell you “I love you Merlin.” Remember that?

Well I guess its time for you to go play some more with your buddies.

I do love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my ever so sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very hot day, no cloud and virtually very little wind, it was quite cool last night thankfully. As soon as I got out of the shower this morning I began to sweat, its really nasty Merlin, I don't think you would like to run around today. However, Molly and Spud are doing their usual attacking each other, those two never cease to amaze me. Bella and Hobo were in the house chilling, if they do go outside they probably find a tree to lay under and go to sleep. I can't say I blame them to be honest.

Mia is unwell again, I think she might have to have grommets put in her ears. She was screaming this morning and making herself feel even worse. The poor little mite is always sick, I really feel sorry for her.

I heard from Mike again, it looks like he's getting himself sorted out and has made quite a few friends. He hasn't said what he does over the weekends, he cannot afford to go to the pub too often at the moment, he needs to find a job first. He did go for a pint and he said that the prices for a pint is about the same as here in South Africa.

When Dogster make their changes Merlin, I don't know if I will be able to write in your diary any more, if I cannot Merlin please remember that I haven't forgotten you. I will never forget you my boy, never in a million years.

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.
