Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy, how are you today?

Hobo was collected from the hospital last night, he looks in a real poor sorry state, his ear has been stitched up along with the hole bitten through in his mouth, on top of that his head has been shaved so they could carry out the operations and he has to wear a cone. He hasn't got the width sorted out yet, the cone keeps getting caught up on furniture and he yelps. Poor little fella. But that is not the end of the story, Bella came in yesterday afternoon, she too had been fighting with those dogs next door, she had a cut on her leg and on her face. Thankfully nothing serious. The man next door said that she had bitten his two dogs which he and I cannot understand as Bella was wearing a muzzle. Both of us are at a loss on how to prevent them fighting, the only idea I can come up with is closer linked chain link fencing. Mike my son mentioned chicken wire, but that is very thin and I have no doubt the dogs would get through it somehow, I think closer link chain link would be the better option. For the moment, until they heal neither Bella or Hobo can wear a muzzle, so I can't just let them out, I have to keep an eye on both of them to make sure they don't go near the fence. I really don't know why the dogs hate each other so much. I remember you wasn't a fan of Hobo when he came to live with us, it was only after he was neutered that you put up with him. Thankfully Molly and Spud keep away from that fence line, at least that's a plus.

I guess its time you went and had some fun with your buddies and have some fun and games. I'm sorry for the bad news my boy.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, how are you this morning? I hope that you are having lots of fun and games with your buddies.

Poor Hobo is in hospital, those dogs next door managed to get at him and nearly ripped his right ear off. His face has been punctured right through to his mouth, the right ear canal is visible and above the ear it looks like he's been scalped and his muzzle has gone, I tried to look for it yesterday but couldn't find it. I'm very annoyed as the people next door were complaining when Bella didn't have a muzzle on for a couple of days, if anything their dogs need to be muzzled. Its not all their dogs that need muzzling, its one in particular, one of the youngest, he's a nasty little blighter. I really don't know why Hobo and Bella insist on going up to the fence line to cause problems. Anyway, Hobo has his operations this morning and we can pick him up this afternoon.

Today is partly cloudy, and very cold. Last night was freezing cold and this morning is very chilly, but I reckon it would make a really nice run and play day for you as you wouldn't have problems with heat exhaustion. I just looked out of the window and it looks like we could be in for rain.

I'm sorry about the bad news this morning Merlin, anyway I think its time for you to go play with your buddies and have some fun and games.

I love you my sweet and wonderful big boy and I always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy. It another very overcast day so far just like yesterday, but yesterday afternoon turned out to be nice and warm. Perhaps it will be the same today, hopefully.

Last night I was so shocked, you know how I keep telling you how Spud plays so rough with Molly and hurts her and she can't match his strength and weight, last night she was chewing on a bone when Spud tried to take it from her, I heard a growl, a yelp and saw Spud running away to his hiding spot when he gets scared, Molly had seen him off! She then went back calmingly to carry on chewing her bone, Spud didn't show his face for ages. BRILLIANT, that's just what Spud needed, to be put in his place. I'm so proud that she faced up to him at last. I knew she was a gutsy little girl, she has shown that she is a true and courageous GSD.

Late yesterday afternoon I saw one of the dogs that Bella and Hobo like to argue with had got out, I saw the owner chasing him in his car down the road, then chasing him back home. I heard our pack who were indoors going bonkers, good job I checked to see what the problem was otherwise there would have been lots of snapping and snarling along the fence line again.

Mia is sick again, she must be picking all these bugs up at her play school. I heard her crying during the early hours of the morning. I hate it when she is ill, poor little mite.

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

I love you so much my boy and I miss you more then you will ever know.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, are you having lot of fun? I hope so my boy, you deserve all the fun you can get.

Guess what Merlin, your diary has been selected as one if "Active posters." Well done my sweet and wonderful big boy. I AM PROUD OF YOU!!!!


Its not a very nice day today my boy, its very overcast, it looks like it could rain. I suppose you could run and play and have some fun Merlin, but you would have to run about to keep warm.

Last night was very cold and as expected Molly jumped up on my bed to keep warm. I don't mind so much when she sleeps back to back with me, then it keeps us both nice and warm, but when she lays down the bottom of the bed it becomes very uncomfortable for me and makes my legs ache.

Again I am drinking a nice cup of tea as I write in your diary, well not exactly. I write on a word processor then when I am finished I save and then copy to your diary, that way if I lose my internet connection I don't lose what I had wrote, which has happened a few times. Most annoying.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

MERLIN YOU HAVE DONE IT AGAIN, YOUR DIARY IS ON THE "ACTIVE POSTERS LIST!!"

Well done my boy I am so proud of you, you have touched so many wonderful families hearts.

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope you enjoyed Fathers Day yesterday, I hope your two daughters there with you wished you a Happy Fathers Day.

I had quite a good day yesterday, Mike my son bought me a gorgeous bag of chocolate biscuits and a mug for my soup, Melissa bought me six pairs of socks, which I badly needed. We also had a braai or BBQ in other parts of the world, it was really nice, a huge piece of Porterhouse steak. SO NICE!

Today is another communist government holiday, the only good thing about it is, your mum gets a day off. Your mum is still fast asleep, she needs a good rest.

Today is another stunning day so far, its so bright and sunny, not a cloud in the sky and thankfully no wind. It would be a really good run and play day for you today Merlin, you could have a high old time chasing Spud.

Its now 10:15am and I am enjoying a nice cup of tea as I wrote in your diary, there's nothing like a nice cup of tea my boy. Remember how you loved your tea? You would drink it down like there was no tomorrow.

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

I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy

 

HAPPY FATHERS DAY MERLIN.

Happy Fathers Day Merlin, your son Spud is still being a pain in the neck, but at times he can be so sweet just like his Daddy. I looked at Molly this morning and said, “Where's my Fathers day card?” She looked at me as if I were bonkers.

Its a glorious day today Merlin, nice and sunny and warm in the sun, it would make a wonderful run and play day for you my boy, you could chase your son Spud all over the property as much as you liked. There is a little breeze, nothing really worth mentioning so you could as I said, play all you wanted to.

Bella is really getting miserable in her old age, I suppose she has aching bones like I have, but for all her aching bones she still tries to cause trouble with the dog next door, and of course her sidekick Hobo. Sometimes Bella get a strange feeling come over her, and she actually tries to play with Hobo, Hobo looks at her as if she's gone mad and hobbles away.

Mia REALLY is mobile now, I often hear her mum shout “MIA COME HERE,” as Mia makes her escape. So funny to watch Merlin. Mia also screams when she is having fun, it feels like red hot needles are going into my eardrums, good God she is so noisy! Her uncle Mike don't help either, he throws her up in the air or shouts BOO, both of which makes her scream with delight. I somehow think Mia is going to be a tomboy, I really don't think she is going to be a “Barbie Doll” little girl at all. But we just have to wait and find out.

I guess its time for you to go play and have some fun my sweet and wonderful big boy with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin, and I miss you more then you will ever know.

Your ever loving Daddy

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

I see your diary is still showing as "One of todays picks," I AM so proud of you my boy.

Its a much better day today my boy, its nice and sunny with some cloud and thankfully no wind. As you well know when it gets windy up here its very windy, and when its windy it takes my breath away. So I think it would be a nice run and play day for you my boy, you could run and chase Spud and have a high old time.

Your mum is highly annoyed, the new TV that was bought just before Christmas is no longer working, so its got to be dismantled and taken back to the shop for repair. Your mums car isn't back yet, the mechanic told her that he is waiting for parts from Land Rover. I told her again, she should have let me and Mike my son do the job, as I could get all the parts I needed from UK in a few days, but as usual your mum don't listen to me, I've told her that the mechanic is taking her for a ride. She is now looking for another car, so basically I've washed my hands of the whole thing my boy, she just wont learn.

Mia is such a sweetie, she was outside with her mum the other day wearing her Wellington boots, she really loves it outside and she was being mummies little helper.

I guess its time you went and played with your buddies my boy and have some fun.

I love you so much my boy, please never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

You have done it again my sweet and wonderful big boy, your diary is again one of "Todays Picks," I am so proud of you Merlin my boy.

Its a really horrible day today, its pouring with rain and we have got another power cut. I can't spend too long on this my boy in case the battery on my lap top runs out. I have no idea how long the power has been out, but it was OK when I got up at around 2 am and went back to sleep.

Poor old Spud, I really felt sorry for him last night, Mia my Granddaughter pulled his ears, he screamed in pain and Mia started crying. Spud ran under the bed and hid, I had the devils own job to reassure him that he wasn't in trouble. He finally came out from under the bed, so I gave him a bit of a cuddle. At times Spud can be a Royal pain in the neck, other times I really feel sorry for him. It looks like he has problems with his ears like you did my boy, it broke my heart seeing you having problems with your ears.

Mike my son was saying that workers had killed another puff-adder just up the road, they might be protected, but then again my family, the pack included is more important and protected then any snake. I remember when Molly was a baby a huge 6 foot cobra rose out of the grass, I ran hell for leather, picked up Molly and took her inside and thankfully the rest of the dogs knew it was dangerous and kept well away.

I guess I had better finish off now my boy, go and have some fun with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin, please remember that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, its another beautiful day today, its nice and sunny, not a cloud in the sky and no wind. Like yesterday it chilly in the shade but so nice and warm in the sun, it would be a wonderful run and play day for you my boy, the sort of days you loved.

Your diary has been chosen again as one of "Todays Picks." I AM SO PROUD OF YOU MY BOY!!!!

Do you remember when you were a puppy we would go for walks on the property? You were always right behind me or trotting after me on your little legs trying to keep up with a “Wait for me Daddy” expression on your sweet little face. We had lots of walks like that didn't we Merlin, even when you were a tiny puppy we had a very strong bond, always wanting to be in each others company. How I miss those days Merlin, I wish I had played with you more when you got older, but honestly Merlin I was in a lot of pain with my back. Today I would do my utmost to ignore the pain just to be with you again Merlin. I miss you so much my boy, so much.

Molly is being good 99% of the time, sometimes she gets her mind set on barking at the dogs at the back of us she doesn't hear me calling her, either that or she ignores me on purpose! She certainly is very vocal.

Last night I woke up to visit the bathroom, when I got back Molly had stolen my place in the bed, she was laying with her head on my pillows!!!! I had the devils own job trying to get her to move, when she did move she only moved a little bit, I had to whisper MOLLY MOVE!!! She got the idea in the end and reluctantly moved so I could get into bed.

I guess its time that you went and played with you buddies Merlin and had some fun.

I love you so much Merlin and I miss you beyond words.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, how are you this lovely bright sunny morning, albeit a bit cold in the shade?

Yes its another bright and sunny day today, no clouds in the sky and no wind, I think it would make another good run and play day for you my boy. You could run and play as much as you liked without getting too hot, the sort of days you loved my boy.

This morning I heard Molly howling, I thought she was in the dining room barking at the dogs at the back of the house, her howling also made Spud howl that horrible high pitched squeak of his. I went into the dining room and couldn't see her, then I heard her howling from the drying yard. I let her in and oh boy was she happy to see me, she began bouncing all over my feet! OUCH!

Yesterday I noticed a bucket of water by the toilet, I thought we had another leak in the roof, but it hadn't been raining. I then noticed all the kettles were filled with water as well as other bottles, then realised we had another water shut off, it was shut off right until 3pm. I made sure the pack had their water and then made myself a cuppa tea.

Mia has gone up a class in her play school to be with her boyfriend Zackery. Apparently they sit together gabbling away to each other, and sharing goodies. So funny.

Remember Merlin, if one day you notice there are no more diary posts from me, keep an eye out my boy, I have probably crossed the bridge to be with you.

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

I love you so much Merlin and I always will my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.
