Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

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

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Today is the same as yesterday as the day before and days before that, no cloud a bit of wind but nothing much, its not too hot at the moment, but I bet its going to get very hot later on. Last night was quite nice, the temperature dropped and there was a nice cool breeze coming in through the bedroom window. I woke up once last night, it was so nice and cool I sat up for about half an hour and then went back to sleep. I've got my desk fan on medium speed, which does help a bit.

Your mum was almost crying again this morning, I know how much she misses Mike, I miss him just as much. Right from when he was a baby he and I were so very close, he followed me everywhere, then as he grew he began to bond more and more with his buddies and we did less and less together, but there were times which I enjoyed where he and I would mess around in the garage, now I've lost that. Yes I am extremely sad that he is no longer here, but he has to find his own way in life. I can only hope that one day he will come back, if not to live, but on holiday for a few weeks. I really hope so.

I'm looking at one of your photographs right now Merlin, so handsome and absolute perfection in every way, majestic and commanding. When you barked, people took notice.

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

I love you and miss you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

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

Its another day like yesterday, no cloud, no wind and getting hotter. This morning was quite nice when I woke up, there was a fresh breeze coming in though the window, so nice. I don't think it would make a good run and play day for you, not with the high temperatures. Yesterday was so hot we couldn't sit outside, it was nasty Merlin.

Your mum is still very upset about Mike, she grabbed hold of me yesterday and sobbed her heart out on my shoulder. I know its hard Merlin, but Mike had to find out for himself if he could cope in the UK. Its very early days yet, he's still got to find a job so he earns enough to pay his rent and put some money away to buy a car and then run it. He's lucky in a way as he has at least one good friend there who's going to help him so he knows he's not alone, plus his Godmother only lives a couple of hours away and intend to meet up. That will be so nice for him. To be brutally honest I don't know if I will ever see him again before I die. I hope I can see him at least once more before that day comes. I really miss him.

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 my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another day like yesterday, no cloud and no wind except for a breeze just rustling the leaves in the trees. Its very hot in my study and very humid, I've just come out of the shower and I am sweating already. I really don't think today is a good run and play day for you, even Molly and Spud are indoors as its too hot outside.

I got a couple of emails from Mike my son in UK, he quite likes where he is living, he said that the people there including the landlord are very nice people. Your mum is still very upset, all she has been doing is cleaning, she's on her hands and knees right at this moment washing the floor. I guess its her way of coping. Mia is trying to help, bless her little heart, but even Mia can't raise a smile out of your mum. Its going to take time for your mum to accept that Mike is no longer here and cope with it. I miss him big time, we were always messing around doing something, now I can't be bothered to do anything except watch TV. But, life goes on.

Mia's dad is here for the weekend, I really don't like the man, neither does your mum, he's a manipulator, but he doesn't get anywhere with your mum, he hasn't tried it with me because he knows he will get short shrift.

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

I will never stop loving you or stop missing you my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another hot day, no clouds in the sky and very little wind, its going to be another hot and sweaty day, not a good run and play day as you could end up with heat exhaustion.

Mike my son has landed in UK, he sent me an email yesterday saying it was a good but long flight, he was exhausted so it was only a short email, but I am glad that he landed OK. I bet he's fast asleep now, its 9:30 here in South Africa, so its 7:30 in UK so he should be snoring his head off. It takes a couple of days to get over a long flight so I doubt if he will be doing much today, maybe going to meet his friends mum and step dad, or perhaps going for a pint in his local pub. Your mum hasn't stopped crying since Mike left, I'm close to tears myself but I am managing to hold it back. The thing is Merlin, Mike had to go, if we had held him back he would end up resenting us. My mum and dad stopped me joing the RAF straight from school at 15 and I resented them, as soon as I was old enough to join without their permission I joined up. I resented my mum and dad for not letting me go in the first place, I resented my dad until the day he died and I haven't seen my mother for almost 30 years, so I don't know (or care) if she is alive or dead. Its an awful thing to resent your parents, and I didn't want that to happen with my son.

Well I guess 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 sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

I am so sorry about yesterday, Mike had just left and I was feeling so low and devastated that my son has left to go to UK. When your mum came home from dropping Mike off at the airport she cried uncontrollably, she is so worried that she will never see him again and that he won't be able to cope on his own. Only time will tell Merlin. Your mum was extremely quiet this morning, she is still so upset. I'm still upset but managing to hide it, I hope and pray to God that Mike will at least come back here on holiday next year.

Mike should be landing any minute now at Manchester airport and then its a two hour drive to Chesterfield where he will be living, thankfully he has got a friend who will be helping him settle in and point him in the right direction with all the things he needs to do. I have told him that if he feels he has to come home he hasn't failed. The problem with Mike he can be very lazy and he cannot think on his feet. He will really have to buck his idea's up. Thos move could be a blessing in disguise.

I'm sorry if I am venting on you Merlin, I just had to get this off of my chest.

I do love you and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin.

I'm a bit upset at the moment, Mike my son has just left for the airport to fly to UK to live. I just can't go to the airport with him, I cannot handle long goodbyes, I've had too many long goodbyes over the years when I was in the Royal Air Force, so his mum, Melissa and Mia have gone with him. I'm going to miss him so much Merlin, so much. God how I hope he comes back even if its for a holiday. I must be getting soft in my old age, tears are streaming down my face, I hope you don't mind if I cut this short my boy, my tears are blinding me.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

MERLIN MERLIN MERLIN, you and the rest of the doggies have been given wonderful gifts by so many wonderful people, too many to thank personally. Again I would like to thank each and everyone of you kind and wonderful people for the kindness you have shown to my doggies family and me.

When I woke up this morning it was so hot, not very nice at all, now however, its become very overcast with some sun coming through, but its a lot cooler thankfully. It would make a good run and play day for you and teaching Spud some manners. I will always remember the day Spud ran up behind you and pulled your tail, the look on your face was totally indignant, I almost fell over laughing. You gave chase but Spud is as you know, very fast on his feet and you couldn't catch him. Molly is very fast on her feet now, she gets Spud to chase her and she can hold her ground if she ducks and dives, she can do some amazing 90 degree turns which totally foils Spud. Molly is getting to be a clever little girl.

I am managing to use this new keyboard a lot better now, but I still don't like it that much, but its better then pounding on the “s” and “w” key on my laptop keyboard trying to get it to work.

Mike flies out tomorrow to UK, I know your mum is very upset but trying to put on a brave face. He's a grown man he has to sort his own future out, I just hope he finds what he is looking for, I hope he finds a cracking girl and marries her and has a baby of his own, which I know he desperately wants.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

So many really nice people have given our doggie family some really nice goifts, far too many to thank personally and three people have sent you congratulations on getting so many "Today's Picks." So many people have been so kind to you and I Merlin, I am so happy that we found Dogster. Thank you each and everyone of you.

Today is very much like yesterday, bright and sunny with no cloud and no wind at all. Later on I can see it getting extremely hot, if you played outside Merlin you would really have to watch that you didn't overheat.

Slowly I am getting use to this keyboard, but I still don't like it, as I said before, some of the keys are too close together so my fat fingers hit more then one key. Most annoying to say the least.

Mike is getting ready to fly to UK the day after tomorrow. From past experience I've told him to get out of the car and say goodbye, long goodbyes are heartbreaking as I learned when I was in the Royal Air Force. Its best to get goodbyes over and done with. I wouldn't mind betting I'll have to drive your mums car home, I know she is going to cry her eyes out, as she is going to be very upset.
I hope he can make enough money to come back at least for a holiday next year.

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

I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy
