Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant. Its quite a nice day again today, nice and bright and sunny and not too hot, there is a very breeze rustling the leaves in the tree's, I think it would make a nice run and play day for you my boy. Yesterday morning your mum and I were talking about you, remarking how majestic you looked sitting on the little hill by the fence, it looked like you were commanding all that you surveyed. People passing certainly took notice of you my boy. I'd call your name and you would come running with such a happy look on your face as if to say “Yes Daddy?” I cannot tell you how much I miss you Merlin, there are not enough words in any language to tell you exactly what I feel. I just hope that you know what I mean and what I feel.

Some very nice families on Dogster have given you beautiful presents as well as warm congratulations on your Dog of the Day honour. You are such a lucky boy and I am so proud of you.

I'm waiting on two of my pensions to come through, although the third pension still needs sorting out. Why they make everything so complicated I'll never know. Once everything is sorted out I can begin to make my mind up as to what new car I want to buy. As I have mentioned before, I hate buying new cars, I always feel like that I should have bought something else. This time though I am doing a lot more research so I can make an educated choice.

Mike my son has at last found a job, he starts today on a weeks trial. Its not the best job in the world but it will do until he finds something better, at least he will be getting a pay packet each week.

Anyway my boy its time that you went and played with your buddies.

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good afternoon my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Sorry that I am late today as I went shopping with your mum, we stopped off and had lunch, I wish we hadn't as now I feel rather bloated but I've brought home a doggy bag for the pack with fat and meat from the steak I had for lunch. I did send one steak back, it was awful, it was very chewy and they must have covered in some kind of seasoning. It was nasty, I reckon they were using the rubbish steak they had left over, anyway after complaining they changed it for a much better piece of meat.

Its a very hot day today and like a idiot I left my hat at home, my head was getting burned in the sun. I don't think this would make a good run and play day for you my boy, its far too hot and you could end up with heat exhaustion. Not good.

I went looking at more cars this morning, seeing what else is available to the ones I am considering. I really hate buying a new car as I usually regret buying what I had bought and then wish I had bought something else. Oh well lets wait and see.

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

I love you so much my boy and I miss you too, but you know that already.

Your ever loving Daddy.

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

OH WOW MERLIN, YOU HAVE BEEN MADE DOG OF THE DAY. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU MY BOY, SO VERY PROUD.

Its another really nice day, nice and bright and sunny, a very gentle breeze and not too hot, just nice and warm. It would make a really good run and play day for you my boy. The nights are a bit on the chilly side, but not too bad yet, Molly is now getting up and laying beside me most nights, I suppose its too cold for her on the floor. I don't mind because we keep each other nice and warm and she hardly moves during the night.

Mia's dad is here again, so far he is behaving himself, he had better keep behaving as you know what I will tell him to do if he doesn't. I'm sorry, but I really don't like the man and I think he knows it. Your mum cooks him nice meals when he's here and he doesn't eat them. If I were her I wouldn't bother to be honest, I'd let him buy a burger and chips or a pizza.

I'm down to my last few dry roasted peanuts, I'm savouring them and making them last as long as possible. Its a great pity that we cannot get them here as they are one of my favourite snacks, if not the favourite of them all. There is a company in UK that sends all manner of snacks around the world in bulk, so I might buy quite a few bulk packs so that they last me a few months and then re-order just before they run out.

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

I love and miss you so much my boy, I often sit and talk to you, I hope you can hear me Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very pleasant day, nice and bright and sunny but not baking hot, there is a slight breeze which is a bonus. It would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy. The nights are getting longer, the sun coming up in the mornings is getting later and later. A sure sign that winter is almost here.

Molly and the gang are outside at the moment, I'm expecting Bella to start barking any minute to be let inside, she wont stop until I do let her in. Just as I thought, Bella has just started barking, I don't know why she doesn't chill outside, its not as if it is cold outside. Hobo chills outside all day and sometimes all night, unless its raining then he barks to come indoors. I opened the front door, Bella, Molly and Spud trooped indoors, and there's Hobo chilled out on the drive. He's a funny little dog. Its highly funny when Mia my Granddaughter goes up to Hobo and says “Hellooooo boooooy,” and tries to give him a cuddle, Hobo looks at her as if to say, “What is she going to do???” then looks relieved when she tries to cuddle Molly or Spud. Spud runs away but Molly lets her cuddle her. Molly is so good with Mia, Mia even sits on her and Molly just lays there. Molly is a very good little girl most of the time. Molly has just come into my study and laying beside me. Molly has always got to be around people, unless she's outside playing with Spud, in the evenings she is either laying beside your mum or me and when we get up to go to bed she troops into the bedroom and lays down. I'm very pleased with Molly, she has got typical GSD traits.

Well I suppose its time for you to go play and have some more fun.

I do love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

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

Its a really lovely day today, nice and bright and nice and warm, instead of being baking hot. There's no breeze whatsoever, but its still a very nice day. It would make a very good run and play day for you my boy. Yesterday when I let the dogs out Spud was going banana's barking his head off for no reason so I chased him away. This morning he was quite a bit subdued, I told him “I am warning you Spud, behave,” he looked at me then ran off to explore without barking. Spud can be a lovely boy, but when he barks and barks and barks it does get very annoying. I wish you were here to teach him a few manners. Last night was quite chilly in the bed room, Molly jumped up on my bed, I suspect it was too cold for her on the floor. I don't mind her jumping up as long as she doesn't lay across my legs.

I am still eating the dry roasted peanuts that Mike my son sent me, but sadly they will soon be gone. I've already told Mike that when he comes here on holiday to leave his clothes behind and fill his luggage with dry roasted, I wish they would import them into South Africa, they are so nice.

I love strawberry jam on toast, but, being diabetic my sugar level spikes all too easily. I couldn't resist temptation so yesterday I had two slices of toast with strawberry jam. When I checked my sugar level last night it had spiked to 16.1, opppps, So I took another tablet that brings down my sugar level. This morning when I checked my sugar level had dropped by half. I need to find sugar free jam somewhere.

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

I love you my boy and I miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

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

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

Its quite a nice day today like yesterday, some cloud but nice and bright, no wind but not too hot, its a nice warm day. It would make a nice run and play day for you my boy, you could run and play and jump all that you wanted to. Last night was a bit chilly so Molly decided to jump up and laid with her back to mine, she was so nice and warm, she laid there all night until this morning. Molly is outside at the moment barking at one of the dogs across the road, she can be very stroppy at times. Although I am very glad that she doesn't join Bella and Hobo fighting every morning with the dogs next door. Both Bella and Hobo have got hurt fighting with them, yet they never learn. Mind you, you use to argue with them and I had to chase you away. Remember???? That was the only really naughty thing you use to do, apart from that you were without fault and perfect in every way.

Last night I was teasing Mia, she would point at me and stamp her foot, I copied her while laughing, she got annoyed but didn't cry. She pointed at me and said to her mum “Granddad is naughty.” Highly amusing, but in the end I gave her a little cuddle and said “Granddad loves his little Mia.” She can be such a sweet little girl, but sometimes when gets gets in one of her moods, she can get a bit too much.

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

I love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another nice bright day, not a cloud in the sky, not too hot and a nice gentle breeze, not the usual gale force winds we get here. I had a really good night last night, for a change, I slept right through. Today would be a good run and play day for you my boy, you could chase Spud all that you wanted to.

Mike my son sent me a couple packets of dry roasted peanuts for my birthday which sadly we cannot get here. That's one thing I miss about England, I do love dry roasted, its a pity that we can't get them here. When he comes over here on holiday I am going to suggest that he leaves all his clothes at home and fill his luggage with dry roasted, he's got more then enough clothes that he left here to wear while he's here. I'm eating dry roasted as I type this, I'm going to make a pig of myself. Last night I dropped a dry roasted and whoosh Bella was there and picked it up and ate it, she must like them too, because she never left my side while I was eating them!

Molly, Spud, Bella and Hobo barked to go outside, I let them out and five minutes later they barked to come inside. Molly and Spud sat down for a treat that they know I always carry in my pocket, then Bella and Hobo came running up wanting a treat. They all know what a soft touch I am.

I had to tell Molly off this morning, Mia was eating a breakfast muffin when Molly took it out of her hand, oh boy, Mia certainly let everyone know about it.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and gentle giant.

Last night was quite cold, so cold I had the heater on in the bedroom, I woke up once and then again at 5am so I decided to stay awake. Today is quite nice, there's no cloud in the sky, but its not too hot and there is also a very stiff breeze. It would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy.

Your mum, Melissa and Mia went to the mall to buy Mia some winter clothes as I mentioned yesterday, as your mum and Melissa were taking clothes off the racks to find the correct sizes for Mia, Mia began copying them and taking clothes off the racks causing all manner of aggravation. When they came home with all of Mia's clothes I was given a fashion show. It was so funny Merlin, Mia is one heck of a show off. This morning she got ready for play school and she came up to me showing off her new trousers and top, she was really pleased with herself. She is such a sweetheart, but at times she can be a pain in the neck when she throws a tantrum. Her mum or your mum tells her off and she ignores them, if I tell her off she does take notice as I am the ogre of the family. She then pouts, points at me and says Naughty Granddad. It does amuse me.

I was very annoyed with her dad yesterday, I was in my study checking emails and such like when I heard Mia making a right old noise, I went to check and saw she was on her own, the front door was wide open and her dad was in Mikes old room playing on Mike old play station. I let him know she was on her own and that I was very annoyed. If he carries on like this I am going to cancel or reduce his visitation rights. He is totally irresponsible, he doesn't deserve a daughter. I REALLY don't like him. Why on earth my daughter got tangled up with him I'll never know, I thought she had more sense.

Anyway my boy its time for you to go play and have some fun with your buddies.

I love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my very special sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

MERLIN, MERLIN, MERLIN!!! YOUR DIARY HAS MADE ONE OF TODAY'S PICK'S AND YOU HAVE RECEIVED GIFTS FROM WONDERFUL PEOPLE. YOU ARE SUCH A LUCKY BOY. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.

Its not too bad today, its bright and sunny but not too hot, its comfortable. I wish it had been like this all through the summer. Last night was quite cold, I went to bed too early and kept waking up, I must have woken up four or five times, finally waking up at 8am, so all in all I don't feel too tired this morning. Anyway, I think it would make a good run and play day for you today my boy. Molly was so good with Mia my Granddaughter yesterday, Mia was playing while sitting on Molly, Molly didn't bat an eye, she was content just being with Mia. She really is a good little girl Merlin, she is really sweet. What spoils her is when she goes out in the morning, she will bark and that is so annoying at 6am. I'm surprised that no one has complained. Bella doesn't help matters, she will go up to the fence line and try and fight with the dogs next door causing a right old noise. She just doesn't learn.

Your mum, Melissa and Mia have gone shopping this morning at the mall, buying winter clothes for Mia. I was tempted to go, but decided to stay at home, going shopping with your mum on her own is bad enough, but with Melissa AND Mia it would be a nightmare. So here I am.

I think I have decided what car to buy I just have to wait and see what my pensions pay out each month and then I can finally decide.

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

I love you and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

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

I had a bad night last night for some reason, I woke up at least three times, so this morning I am fairly tired. Anyway, its a bright day with lots of cloud cover and a lot cooler then it has been lately, a sure sign that winter is on the way. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy, you could chase Spud all that you wanted to and maybe teach him a few manners.

Mia's dad is here this weekend, so far he's been behaving himself, perhaps he realises at last we won't take any of his nonsense. I am surprised that Mike my son thought he was a nice chap, I didn't think he was that gullible and didn't see past the big act that he likes to put on. Hopefully he will learn not to be so naïve in UK.

Apparently Mike has got himself a girlfriend, he doesn't hang about. She seems to be a really nice girl and she thinks that Mike is a really nice person, perhaps she is use to boyfriends who are not as polite, well mannered and respectful as Mike is. I think me and Mikes mum brought him up properly, I'm proud of him, very proud and so is his mum.

I've finally sorted my works pension out, hopefully I will begin to get it and my government pension very soon, then I can start making my mind up as to what new car I intend to buy. Although I am pretty sure as to what I intend to buy.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.
