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.

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

Its another hot day today, there's no cloud in the sky as far as I can see and there's no wind whatsoever. It rained last night which cooled things off quite a bit, but then it became extremely humid in the early hours of the morning. Molly cuddled up last night, she laid alongside me, her back pressing into mine. She was snoring her little head off and quite content, but then later she decided she had enough and laid on the floor. I don't think today would make a good run and play day for you my boy, its simply too hot. All the dogs apart from Molly are indoors, Molly as usual is exploring, when I can't see her I get worried, I never know what she gets up to when she's out of sight.

I finally heard from Mike yesterday, it appears he's getting along quite well, although he's still getting himself sorted out getting the correct documentation and getting registered at various government places. He did say its very cold, with sleet, hail and snow. I did warn him about the weather, I wonder how long he will be able to handle it. Mike has hooked up with a young lady already, although he says they are just “friends!” I saw a picture of her, she's got bright red hair!!!! But she is quite pretty I must admit. Mike is a good looking fella and quite tall, so I think he is going to attract the girls no problem. I wonder what they make out of his accent, part South African and part Essex, although when he gets annoyed he breaks out into a London accent.

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

I love you and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

It's very overcast this morning, its cooled things of quite a bit but its very humid and sticky. Last night was extremely hot again, I was only woken up once with the heat but I was awake before 6am. It might make a good run and play day for you, but even though its over cast you would still need to be careful of heat exhaustion. For some reason even Molly and Spud are a bit subdued, they aren't running about like they usually do. It looks like we are in for a storm, there are some very dark clouds overhead. At least it will cool things off a lot more.

Mike has been in UK now for a week, and he still hasn't answered my email to let me know how he's getting on, whether he's found a job or not or found out what he is able to claim for while he looks for work. His mum hasn't been crying lately but she looks extremely sad, she misses him big time, when she's sad it makes me miserable as well. I'm fed up looking at her miserable face all the time. I just wish she would pull herself out of it. When you were here beside me you always knew when I was unhappy because you would sit beside me or lay your beautiful head on my lap and wouldn't leave me. I am so grateful for your gift of love, loyalty and devotion Merlin, more then you could ever know. It was you that pulled me from the dark place, you pulled me from the abyss that I was falling into, you saved my life Merlin. Thank you my boy.

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.

Your ever loving Daddy.

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

Its another day like yesterday, extremely hot, very little cloud and no wind, not even a slight breeze. Last night was also very hot, so much so the heat woke me up again soaked in sweat. Usually I don't like winter, but I'll be glad when winter comes this year, this must be one of the hottest summers we have had. Its nasty.

I sent Mike an email on Sunday asking him a few questions, its Thursday and he hasn't answered me yet. I know he's probably busy, but I am wondering if its a case of “Out of sight, out of mind.” It would only take him 5 minutes to answer my email. I am rather disappointed to say the least.

I sat outside yesterday evening for a little while with your mum and Mia. Mia was playing in her little playground really enjoying herself. That playground has got to be one of your mums best idea's yet, Mia really loves it, she plays for hours having all manner of fun.

I am looking at a photograph of you when you were a tiny puppy, oh Merlin you looked so cute and sweet, its one of my favourite photographs of you, me sweet little boy.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its even hotter today then it has been for the past week, last night I woke up soaked in sweat, and next month it gets hotter. Its been so hot I haven't been outside in over a week, I love the heat but this is simply too much. There is no wind whatsoever, its so hot I can hear the heat, which might sound silly, but its true. Today would definitely not make a good run and play day for you, the heat would knock you over. Yet, Molly and Spud are outside doing their usual, Bella came indoors immediately, I have no idea where Hobo is, he's probably chilling out somewhere nice and cool.

It appears that Dogster is closing its community pages down, the sad thing is friends won't be able to contact each other or view each others diaries. I hope that you will be able to see yours my boy, as talking to you here brings me closer to you.

Well your mum wasn't in tears this morning over Mike, I know she still misses him as badly as I do, I hope that she is realising that its all part of raising children and that one day they will leave the nest. Having said that, its still very difficult to let go.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy
