Sorry I'm a bit late today Merlin, but Sunday is the only day I can catch up on sleep.

Remember how you would jump on me if you thought I had slept long enough? 50 Kgs of Merlin bouncing on my stomach is enough to wake anyone up.

You always did want all my attention Merlin, I was so happy to give it to you except for that time I was ill, I wanted to be left alone. I still remember the look in your eyes when I opened the front door to let you out, your eyes were pleading with me to play with you. I'm so sorry that I didn't Merlin, I wish I could have that time back, ill or not I'd play with you all I could. I'm not making excuses Merlin, it breaks my heart that I didn't play with you during that time and the look in your eyes still haunt me. I'm so sorry my boy, I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

Time to go play my boy and have some fun with your buddies.

I do love you Merlin so much and I swear I will never stop loving you.

Your ever loving Daddy.


Good morning my huge and wonderful boy.

Hello my handsome boy. I hope its warmer where you are then it is here. Its so cold and miserable, it was raining all night long. The sun has warmed up things a little but its still nasty.

I decided I'd let Molly off the lead yesterday and let her run and play with Spud. Suddenly it began to rain, Bella ran indoors, then Spud ran indoors then Hobo ran indoors. Molly? She decided she wanted to play in the rain which by this time was extremely heavy. I called her and called, nope she wanted to play in the rain, I stood under cover watching her then finally it got too much for her and she went running in as fast as her legs would carry her. She's one crazy pup. You didn't like the rain did you my boy? As soon as it started to rain you ran indoors, you had more sense.

Melissa's baby Mia certainly makes a lot of noise for something so small, but she is so pretty Merlin, I think you would have loved her and protected her. You were so protective of your family Merlin even when you were a puppy. I remember when you were only 4 months old you chased off a Labrador that got onto our property. Funnily enough, after that he never came back.

Time to go play my lovely boy and have some fun with your buddies.

I hope you realise how much I love and miss you Merlin my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet boy. Its really horrible today, but not as bad as yesterday. Its still cold, it has stopped raining and no wind, but it can all change in a heartbeat. Last night was freezing cold, very heavy rain lashing down, thunder and lightning but it was so nice and cosy under my duvets, the sound of the rain sent me to sleep.

You are such a lucky boy Merlin, you have been given another beautiful blue rosette from your wonderful friends Angel Whisper and Dixie. You have really touched so many hearts Merlin, its no wonder I am so proud of you.

I remember you falling asleep at the drop of a hat, your eye lids would flutter, then finally close usually followed by snoring, although if I moved you would instantly wake up. You were always the first to greet me in the mornings, you would come up to me expecting a cuddle and I always gave you a big hug. You were always there for me Merlin and I will never forget that.

Molly came into the house with one of your massive logs in her jaws, she really is taking after you in so many ways, but she will never be totally like you, neither will she replace you in my heart and soul my boy, but she will join you there.

Time to go play with your buddies Merlin and have some fun.

My love for you never stops Merlin, never in a million years.

Your ever loving Daddy


Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Hello my big boy.

It is REALLY nasty here today Merlin, high winds, heavy rain and cold with snow on the mountains, the sort of day you and I would cuddle up under a blanket and go to sleep. Spud of course, still wants to go outside. I reckon that boy needs his head read. The other day it was pouring with rain, yet he wouldn't come inside, he was standing in the rain looking at me! Eventually he got a bit cold and decided to come inside.

Last night was so cold, I snuggled under my two duvets when Molly jumped up and curled up by my feet, exactly the place you use to lay. She hasn't taken over from you Merlin, no little girl or boy will ever replace you, Molly is only a puppy and I don't want her getting ill.

The weather is undoing all the work on the road outside the property, they graded the road and rolled it, then graded it again but didn't grade it, now the rain is washing the road away again. Sometimes I really wonder what these people have got for brains, who does road works in winter knowing full well we get heavy rain?

Time to go play with your buddies Merlin and enjoy yourself.

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

Oh I almost forgot, your dairy made featured diary again. CLEVER BOY!!!

Your ever loving Daddy


Good morning my massive and loving big boy Merlin

Hello my boy, been having fun?

Last night was soooooooooooooooo cold and raining I really hate winter, although this morning isn't too bad now the sun is out, albeit a bit cloudy. I've got two duvets on my bed to keep warm, remember how I would cover you up on cold nights when you laid on my bed? I bet the weather is perfect where you are running and playing, we will have so much fun when I get there my boy.

Molly is just over 5 months old now, but she is so strong. Because Spud is such a bad influence on her I take her out for a walk on a lead to keep her under control, she is so strong she almost has the power to pull me over, I REALLY have to hang onto the lead. I dread to think how strong she's going to be when she's fully grown, maybe hitch a cart up to her like they did in Belgium all those years ago and get her working on the property. Knowing her she will try and play with Spud with the cart attached to her! Maybe that's not such a good idea.

Time to go play my wonderful handsome boy.

I still miss you so much Merlin, and it goes without saying I love you beyond words.

Your ever loving Daddy.


Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Hello my boy, how are you this morning?

It's not a very nice day today, dampness in the air and very overcast. I think it might rain later.

Molly has been extremely naughty, she broke my back scratcher!!!! BOY I was so annoyed. I kept it in the bedroom and I closed the bedroom door so she can't get in there, then Spud comes along and opens the door without me knowing thereby letting Molly in. She's laying with her head against my foot now trying to get around me. She is acting very sorry for what she has done, boy she is a good actor.

Bella was also very naughty yesterday, she got out and onto the road by crawling under the gate, she's lucky that there is very little traffic otherwise she could have gotten run over. The only one who has been behaving is Hobo, but he's to laid back to get into trouble.

Melissa's baby Mia has been making a lot of noise lately, it's amazing how much noise comes out of something so small.

Time to go play my wonderful boy.

Remember my boy, I love and miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy

Hello my sweet and loveable boy. I see you have been given another gift, a beautiful butterfly from Quinndred Spirit. You really are such a lucky boy Merlin, so many people and dogs have been so kind to us.

The road alongside the property is being repaired, I hope they do a better job then they did last time. Anyway, Spud and Bella are going bonkers barking so I have to keep them inside. Spud has got a horrible bark that sounds like a cat being strangled, it's a very annoying bark. Molly's bark if getting very much like a proper GSD's bark, full of authority and commanding. She's getting a big girl now. I remember your bark so well, when you barked everyone took notice, you really had a proper GSD bark. Everything about you Merlin was perfect, your colouring, your bark, your love, devotion and loyalty. You really are one in a billion Merlin.

It's more then six months since you crossed the bridge Merlin, I miss you more and more each day, I miss having you by my side or following me everywhere. How I wish you were here right now.

Time to go play my sweet and wonderful boy and have some fun with your buddies. Just remember to keep a spot for me when I get there.

I do love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy


Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Hello my bestest boy in the entire world.

Its a really nice playing day today, or even better laying in the sun chilling out.

Your mum has got beef in the oven roasting, the smell is really making me hungry. Remember how you use to sniff the oven when your mum was cooking Sunday roast? Boy would you have loved to get hold of that joint. You were a very fussy eater Merlin, if you didn't like your dinner, you wouldn't eat it, yet if any of the other dogs went near it you would chase them off. Oh boy, you certainly are an enigma. Your mum tried getting different dinners for you to find one you liked, your favourite was chicken and rice when you weren't well, you also loved my yoghurt pots. You would watch me drooling while I ate the yoghurt with your eyes boring into me, end the end I had to give it to you. You knew how to twist me around your paw or little finger if you had one. The thing was, I REALISED you were doing it. I couldn't refuse you anything Merlin, you are so special to me my boy, and you always will be.

Time to go play and enjoy yourself

I love and miss you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy


Good morning my big wonderful special boy.

Hello my boy. You know Merlin I miss you so much, I miss you standing beside my bed waiting for me to wake up, then when I did you would come over to me to say good morning, you always made my day better and brighter.

I remember one day I told you off, you had gotten in my way as I was trying to get past you to do something that was very urgent, I then shouted at you to get out of the way. The look on your face broke my heart, it really looked like you were crying, I had never ever shouted at you before. I bent down to cuddle you saying "I'm so sorry Merlin, I'm so sorry," I kept saying it over and over, I was nearly in tears that I had hurt your feelings. I never shouted at you again Merlin. How I wish I could take that back my boy, but I really didn't mean it. You will always be that one in a lifetime boy in my life, I know I will never get another boy like you again. When my dad died I didn't cry, but when you crossed the bridge it really broke my heart, I cried for days and I am not ashamed to admit it. Your love, devotion and loyalty to me was total and so special. Why did I cry for you and not my dad? Well he had lived a long life, yours was far too short, your time was taken away from you and I don't know why, you had done nothing wrong Merlin.

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

Your ever loving Daddy

Sorry for shouting my boy, I wanted to make sure you were awake.

Its a really lovely day today, not a cloud in the sky and very little wind and not too cool. I know you would love it and I know you would run and run and run.

Contractors are repairing the road alongside the property, all the dogs are going bonkers even Molly is putting her two cents in. I can't keep them locked in the house all day, it wouldn't be fair.

Bella is really getting grumpy in her old age, Spud tries to get her to play as I have told you before, she really doesn't want to know. All she wants to do is lay in the sun on her back and relax, but Spud won't leave her alone. The times I have chased Spud off. He's nearly three years old, he should be growing out of his nonsense by now, I am REALLY waiting for Molly to put him in his place. The vet said she is going to be a big girl, she reckons Molly is going to weigh about 50 Kgs when she is fully grown. I'd love to see Spud try and knock her over then.

Time to go play my lovely boy with your buddies.

I love you so much

Your ever loving Daddy.
