G’Day Mob,

I spent a few nights away from home this week and while travelling met a lady who had camped in the park at Coolatai. The conversation went something like this:

“Oh, this lovely black dog came over the road and said hello to us”

“That would be Beau”

“Then we went to the pub and a border collie kept dropping his chew toys at our feet”

“That was Bullet”

“And when we got back to camp there was a one-eyed terrier waiting for us”

“That was Trixie. She lives up the road a bit”

My new friend then paused for a moment before adding: “Gee, you must live in a small community if you know all the dogs by name!”

This intimate canine knowledge can however have it’s disadvantages. On the same trip another friend said to me: “Mandy do you have a new huntaway puppy?”. When I said no she wanted to know which dog was in the photo on the blog’s “About” page.

Mandy & Bo

Bo” I replied, having a fair idea of what was coming.

“Oh,” she said, “and how old is Bo now?”

With a grimace I told her he was seven.

Apparently it is time I updated my photo, so here is a picture taken only this week showing a rather older and larger huntaway puppy.


I may just leave the “About” photo in place for posterity.

  1. At least Bo has aged a lot more than you have!

  2. What? Not strong enough to lift him up?? C’mon Mandy!

  3. Where did you get Bo from?! (the puppy)

    • You should know the answer to that one Bin. He was born and raised on the banks of the Mole River at Braeside. Are there any of his siblings left higher up the Mole?

  4. Posterity is good!
