Good morning Merlin my handsome gentle giant.

Today is pretty much like yesterday, some cloud but very hot and no wind. Last night was a little cooler, I managed to get a fair nights sleep but I went to sleep very late. I was going to go back to sleep but I had to let the pack out. I must admit I do feel a bit tired, I'll probably have a nap later on in my chair. I think today might be too hot for you to run and play, even Molly and Spud are not tearing around like lunatics.

Do you remember when I came home from work on Saturday afternoon I use to take a nap? When you thought I had enough sleep you would come and jump on me to wake me up, every time I though the house was falling in on me, your 100 pound weight landing on my stomach knocked the wind out of me. I kept telling you not to do it, but it fell on deaf ears, when you wanted me awake you woke me up. How long for those days again. We were a team Merlin, you and I, we have a bond even now you are no longer beside me, a bond that will last for eternity. My best friend ever and always will be.

Mia is with her dad on Saturdays while Melissa and your mum are at work, he comes to the house on Friday evening and leaves on Sunday, so he and Mia can see each other. I don't like him, I never have, but we can't keep him away from his daughter.

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.

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

Good morning Merlin my amazing boy.

Its pretty much the same today as its been for the past week or so, although there is some cloud cover, there's no wind and its still quite hot, I suppose you could run and play today but you would need to drink lots of water.

Molly and Spud aren't playing as much as they use to, I guess they are feeling the heat too.

Mia can be very grizzly, crying at times which I must admit does annoy me, she cries to be picked up, I think her mum has been pandering to her too much instead of not giving in to her all the time. She throws a temper tantrum and she only shuts up when I talk sternly to her. I really hope she's not going to turn out to be a spoiled little brat, because I wont put up with her nonsense, and I don't care if it annoys her mum.

When I was drinking my tea this morning sitting on the side of my bed, Molly jumped up, laid beside me, laid her head on my leg, then promptly feel asleep. I suppose she just wanted a bit of affection which obviously I gave her. She is a sweet little girl Merlin, and I know you would love her too.

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

Never forget Merlin, I love and miss you so very much

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet boy.

Its another hot day again, no cloud and no wind whatsoever. Last night was quite nice, there was a fairly strong wind that blew in through the windows, so it was quite cool. For a change I got a good nights sleep.

Molly and Spud are not so active play fighting, they might play for a little while and then come indoors, Bella and Hobo as usual are not very active at the best of times. Bella is laying in my study at the moment. Very strange, lately she is hanging around me, she lays by my armchair, perhaps she thinks two old people (her and I) should stick together. Like me she has problems getting up. Old age can be a bummer.

I tried one of your mums green tea with lemon instead of normal tea with milk, its quite nice but I have to have a small spoon of sugar as its quite bitter, but I must admit its very refreshing.

Mike my son seems to be doing very well, he's applied for a job with the Royal Mail as a postman/driver, he wont like getting up very early in the mornings during winter. Having said that its a good job and pays quite well, so I am pleased for the lad. Apparently the sorting office is not far from where he is living, so he can walk to work. I hope he gets the job.

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

I love you so much Merlin, please never forget that, especially when Dogster shuts down the community pages.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love you so much Merlin and I always will.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its the same sort of day today as yesterday, hot, no cloud but today there is a slight breeze. I suppose you could run and play today as long as you were careful with the heat and drank lots of water.

Last night I had a fair nights sleep, I woke up once to find Molly laying alongside me. I don't mind her doing that, but I don't like it when she lays at the bottom of my bed, she takes up so much room. Remember how I came to bed to find you on my bed and wouldn't get off, I had to get very stern with you, you would give me one of your disgusted looks and slink off. Oh boy what a dog you were my boy. I would give anything for you to be here now and take over my bed. I miss you so much Merlin.

Your mum still loves her little car. I drove it once and must admit I didn't like it at all, the brakes are too vicious and its very cramped inside, but your mum loves it and that's all that matters. Around town with all the traffic lights her car uses quite a lot of petrol, when she goes into town she gets quite good fuel consumption. There's far too many traffic lights in this town.

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

I love you so much Merlin, my perfect boy.

Your ever loving Daddy

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

Its another very hot day today, not a cloud in the sky and no wind, not even a slight breeze. Molly and Spud went outside and played but now they are extremely subdued, I guess its because its too hot to play fight. In this hot weather I don't want to do anything, I suppose its the same for the pack, well Bella and Hobo don't do anything at the best of times.

In 20 days I officially retire and get my UK state pension, I'm still sorting out my works pension which is a pain in the neck, they want to know the ins and outs of everything, all I want is my pension for goodness sake. Anyway, it will get sorted out sooner then later.

I am still looking at buying a new car, I've narrowed it down, I don't really need a 4 wheel drive any more, I want a nice comfortable car that's safe for everyone who rides in it, and cheap on fuel.

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

I love you and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

MERLIN MERLIN MERLIN, YOUR DIARY HAS MADE THE ACTIVE POSTERS LIST. WELL DONE MY BOY I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another cloudless day, with no wind, but thankfully its not as hot today, so it would make a good run and play day for you. Molly and Spud are outside, although they aren't running about going bonkers, why I have no idea, perhaps they are fed up play fighting, although I doubt it. I've no idea where Bella and Hobo are, poor old aunty Bella is feeling her age now she has problems getting up. As long as she isn't in pain, I'll let her live her life out, but your mum expects Bella to be dead every time she comes home.

I've got a photograph of you running towards me after I called you from your little hill near the fence, you've got such a lovely look on your face as you came running towards me as if to say, “I'm coming Daddy.” I do miss you so much my boy,

I just had a quick snack of cold roast beef left over from my Sunday Dinner, hmm it is so nice. I remember how much you loved English tea with one sugar and a little milk, you would lap it up, and I am sure if I let you, you would have had a second cup. We were such a good team together weren't we my boy? We had so much fun together you and I, although you liked playing with Mike my son as well, it was like watching two puppies playing together. Wonderful memories my boy, absolutely wonderful.

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

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 very hot day today, there is a light breeze but its not really cooling anything down. It was supposed to rain yesterday but it didn't, but being overcast did cool things off a bit. Last night was another hot night, but amazingly it didn't wake me up so I got a fair nights sleep which is unusual.

Your mum isn't very well, she's got a tummy bug which she caught from Mia. I gave her some of my stomach medication which kills off all the bad bugs, but not the good ones. So hopefully they will help your mum. Whenever I get stomach cramps which are so bad I'm in agony, those stomach capsules along with my strong pain killers usually does the trick.

Molly and Spud are outside doing their usual play fighting, I really don't know where they get the energy. Spud is still an overgrown puppy and as for Molly, I don't think she will ever leave puppy hood behind. Spud hurts Molly so Molly attacks Spud and it all starts all over again, its catch 22.

I've got to sort out my works pension which is a pain in the neck, but I'll get there In the end with your mums help. She understands these thing much better then I do.

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

I do love you and miss you so much Merlin, never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its quite overcast at the moment and there is a gentle breeze, its supposed to rain this morning, I hope it does and cools everything off. Last night was awfully hot, I kept waking up during the night soaked in sweat, when I came out of the shower this morning I began to sweat again. It really is nasty Merlin, I don't think that you would like to run and play today. Even Molly and Spud are somewhat subdued this morning. Yesterday I went outside and even the wind was hot, which I suspect came off of the Kalahari desert. As I said, nasty.

|Your mum picked up Mia from play school early yesterday and went to the beach, apparently Mia had the time of her life there, she was laughing as she splashed in the sea, really enjoying herself. There's nothing quite like a child's laughter.

I hope it begins to rain soon, my desk fan is having very little effect even when its flat out. I really am fed up with this heat Merlin, its got to be one of the hottest summers ever. NASTY NASTY NASTY!!!!

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

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 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.
