Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonder gentle giant.

Its a very overcast day and quite chilly, in fact it looks like it could rain. I must check the weather forecast. Molly, Spud and Hobo are outside while dear old aunty Bella is sitting on your mums chair by the window, she is really looking old now, she has problems getting up after she lays down. But then again she has a mad half hour and plays with Hobo and she jumps up on your mums bed no problem. As the nights are getting quite cold every night Molly jumps up on my bed, sometimes she lays back to back with me, other times she lays at the bottom of my bed. When she jumps up on my bed its like a huge “thump,” for a little girl she is very heavy. I remember when you use to jump up on my bed, sometimes jumping on me, all 100 pounds of you knocking the wind out of me!!! I would give anything for you to be here to do that again my boy.

When Molly starts barking at people walking or driving along the road, I call her in and she comes running, then sits in front of me for a treat as she thinks she has been a good girl. I can't help but laugh and give her some dry doggy biscuits.

At this moment I am looking at a picture of you when you were a baby, you looked so sweet and cute, my little shadow, my boy Merlin.

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

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

P.S.
I think of you all the time Merlin.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

It rained quite heavily during the night and this morning, its stopped raining for now and quite bright, there's a very slight breeze and quite cool so it would make a good run and play day for you my boy.

I was checking my finances and found that I might be able to buy my new car sooner then I expected which would quite nice. I hate being without transport and having to rely on your mum or my daughter to go anywhere when and if I get my car I want to do a trip to ADDO elephant reserve and take more photographs. It should be a good test for it as its about 500 miles from here, it would be a good test for comfort and fuel consumption. I wish you were here to ride in it, I remember how much you loved riding in your mums mini bus, you sat on the seat behind your mum driving and watched people going past. It was so funny when people at traffic lights came up to your mums window trying to sell junk, you would give a deep throated growl and when they looked inside and saw you they soon took off. Hilarious. As I have said many times before, you always had the ability to make me laugh.

I am getting more use to this new keyboard, I'm not making as many mistakes that I use to, but I still make a few because of my fat fingers.

Molly has just come inside and is sitting beside me, like you she always has to be near people. Even Spud wanted a bit of attention this morning, he kept giving me his paw.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

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

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

Its a very nice day today, nice and cool, not cold, no wind with some cloud, so it would make a very nice run and play day for you my boy. All the pack are outside, even Bella, Molly and Spud are doing their usual play fighting. Spud does get carried away though as you probably remember, he hurts Molly, Molly gets annoyed and loses her temper, I just wish Molly was bigger and heavier and able to put Spud on his back. Spud is actually a bully, but he doesn't try it on with Bella or Hobo, they both read him the riot act as it were and chase him off.

I was sitting on the edge of my bed drinking my tea this morning thinking of you, I still remember so clearly the love in your eyes when I woke up in the morning. I miss that so much Merlin. Molly is a very sweet little girl and I love her lots but she is nothing like you Merlin. I know I shouldn't even try and compare her to you, but its very difficult. You were my boy, Molly is every ones little girl, although when no one is home except me she does lay beside me and follows me around. I remember how you use to lean against me, you had to be in contact with me as much as possible, except when you were helping your mum in the garden and annoying her with your high pitched bark. That was so funny Merlin, but it really annoyed your mum.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

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

Its a very overcast day today, the weather forecast said cloudy with sun, but the sun is no where to be seen, it looks like it could start to rain any minute. It would however, make a good run and play day for you as its quite cool, you could teach Spud some manners. I was saying to your mum that it was a pity that Spud didn't have your colouring instead of the black and white of Spuds mum. Your colouring was so perfect my boy.

Your mum is taking Melissa to the cash and carry to get stock for her sandwich shop, because the car Melissa drives has got a battery that's finished and needs to be replaced, so your mum is buying one for her. I took the battery out and nearly put my back out again.

Mike my son is really pleased with his new job, he went out last night to celebrate at a restaurant for his favourite “Ribs.” It was a huge weight lifted not only off of his shoulders but me and your mum as well, we were both getting worried that he wouldn't get a job before he ran out of money.

I suppose 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 ever forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love you so much Merlin and I always will.

Good morning my very special sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a really lovely day today, nice and bright and sunny, no wind and quite warm, not too hot. All the dogs are outside apart from Bella who's stretched out on the sofa. Mia is outside with her dad, she really loves it outside, she can play out there all day long, even when it rains she still wants to go outside. Her dad was teaching her “Old MacDonald had a farm” all she can mange is “e i e i oh.” Highly amusing, except when she sings it over and over and over.

We had some brilliant news from Mike, the past two weeks he has been doing a temporary job with an agency packing for an engineering firm, he has impressed the boss so much they have given him a permanent job. Needless to say Mike is over the moon about it, now he can start saving money to buy a car. Even if he is on minimum wage and after his outgoings he should be able to save quite a bit each week. Where Mike is living there is a very good public transport system in the form of a good bus network and a good railway network, so at least he wont be stuck. I'll say one thing for Mike, everyone who meets him, likes him. He's very polite, respectful and has very strong morals and he gets on with mostly anyone.

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

I love and miss you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a really lovely day today, nice and bright and sunny, no cloud, no wind and its nice and warm, not baking hot like it has been this summer. It would make a really good run and play day for you my boy, you could chase Spud all that you liked.

Mia was in a really good mood this morning, she helps your mum sweep up all the dogs hairs. She does try and help your mum quite a bit, she picks up the dogs bowls every morning after they have eaten and puts them on the dogs bowl table, but we had to move the dogs from the cupboard to somewhere up high as Mia kept on feeding the dogs their biscuits. Of course the dogs loved it being fed more.

Mia is talking a lot more now, she says “please” which come out “Pwese” and “thank you.” It sounds so sweet. I wish you were here Merlin as I know you would love and protect her. Molly is very good with Mia, but Molly can be a bit clumsy and heavy handed, or should that be heavy pawed, she knocks Mia over sometimes which results in Mia crying, pointing at Molly and saying “Naughty Molly.”

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

Always remember Merlin, I love and miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

There's quite a lot of cloud in the sky, but its still quite bright with the sun breaking through, its quite comfortable as far as the temperature goes and there's no wind, so I think it would make a good run and play day for you.

Mia was in a very good mood this morning, she was full of smiles and helping your mum sweep up, so funny to watch her trying to sweep with a full size broom. This is what I mean, when she's in a good mood she is a really lovely child, but when she's in one of her temper tantrum moods she can be a real pain in the neck. In a couple of months its her second birthday, the “Terrible Two's,” oh my.

I had to tell Molly to get off my bed last night as she was taking up all the room, I managed to fall asleep and that was when she snuck back on my bed. I don't mind when she lays beside me back to back, but when she lays across the bed I can't get comfortable or even stretch out. Another thing she does that you use to do, jump up on my bed and scratch shaking my bed with me inside it!!!! Bella don't go outside much nowadays, I think its too cold for her aching bones. Its not nice getting old Merlin, I know!!

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

I love and miss you so much Merlin, one day we will be together again and what fun we will have together.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

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

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

Its a nasty day today, its been raining just about all night and its a light drizzle this morning with a bit of a stiff breeze and quite cold. Last evening before bed I had to put on a sweater. Molly must have been cold last night as she jumped up on my bed and laid beside me back to back, keeping each other warm. Right at this moment she's laying beside me probably going to sleep. When the pack was let out this morning, they all rushed outside, did their ablutions and rushed back indoors. This country is messed up, its either very hot or very cold, with very few days a happy medium.

I have been thinking again about buying my new car, there are two which I have narrowed it down to, they are different marques but both are made in the same factory, for the exact same car one is considerably cheaper then the other. The only real difference is the badge on the grill. Its bonkers.

Mia had a bit of a whine again this morning giving me a headache. She starting to talk a lot more now, she doesn't call me Granddad she calls me “Dad Dad,” she calls a banana a nana, a tomato a ma-toe, she's also saying “I love you,” which is quite sweet.

I was thinking this morning about the time when you was asleep on my bed when Bella suddenly barked, you woke up wondering what was going on a fell off my bed. The look on you face was an absolute picture, your mum and I burst out laughing, you looked at us and walked off totally disgusted which made us laugh even more. You always managed to make me laugh, even when you didn't intend to.

Well 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 Merlin, please never forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

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

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very overcast day and quite cool, this morning was actually quite cold as was last night. Molly must have been cold as she jumped up on my bed and stayed there all night, taking up most of the room!!! Remember how I had the same problem with you? I''d tell you to get off my bed so I could get in it, and you would give me your paw. How many times did I have to push you off so I could get into bed? When I pushed you off you would look at me most indignantly. To have you back here with me right now I'd gladly give you my bed. Molly is never far away from anyone, last evening while I was watching TV she laid her head on my leg and looking at me with her beautiful eyes, just like you use to do and right now she's in your place under my desk. I wish you were here with Molly, I know that you would love her and you could teach Spud a few lessons on manners when he knocks her over. As I booted my computer my picture frame also booted up and one of the first pictures was of you, so handsome and so perfect in every way. I do miss you so much Merlin, I never will stop missing you.

My granddaughter Mia was in one of her moods again this morning, I love her very much but quite frankly I'm glad when she's taken to play school so I can get some peace and quiet. When she's good she's a sweet heart, but when she gets into her whining moods she's a pain in the neck. Sometimes I think that I'm too old to have another baby in the house, and then when she's her sweet self she melts my heart.

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

I love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a very overcast and rainy day today, and quite chilly. When the dogs were let out to do their ablutions they ran straight back inside, and Spud being the usual pain in the neck did a poo inside the house. BOY your mum was annoyed and she let him know she was annoyed.. I just opened the front door and they all ran outside except for Bella, as its stopped raining, just a light drizzle. Its supposed to rain for the next few days and hopefully clears up by the weekend. I reckon it would make a good run and play day today for you my boy.

Your mum has got another crazy idea in her head, she's preparing the ground for laying fancy bricks outside the front door patio, just where she gets these idea's I'll never know, but once she gets an idea in her head nothing shifts it. I can't help her because my back is totally stuffed, I can't stand for more then a few minutes and getting down to actually lay the bricks I'd never get up again, so all I can do is advise her as to the best way to do it. At least she listens to me in that regard even if she don't listen to me when I tell her that its not a good idea and that its a specialised job to lay bricks properly. It would be quicker to lay cement, but the dogs would run all over it while its wet leaving paw prints in it.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy
