Koda’s birthday party

Greetings from South Africa Mom and Dad.  Hope you are having a great holiday.  What an amazing day we had today.  We all went to Walkhaven for Koda’s birthday party.  It was hot, hot, hot again, so we only left “The Vale” at 13h30 to get there for 14h30.  We were told it is a long drive, but it felt like 5 minutes because we got to drive in this “styling” bakkie with a fancy sleeper couch in the back just for us.  Uncle Gavin said he would tell you where he got his when you get back so you can get us one to.  Parents – this is definately the way we need to travel in future.

Anyways, we were sooo excited when we got to Walkhaven, we all jumped out the bakkie and started running and running – so much space to do just what we wanted.

We chased each other through the veld ( How cool are my ears )

We ran through the mud

And more mud . . .

Uncle Gavin brought my special squeaky tennis ball with so we could all have some fun

We swam in the dirty dam

And played in the dirty water

We then we got another surprise.  Trevor and Dilene ( with Rotadom ) and Jane ( with Pippin and Rebel ) arrived at Walkhaven as well.  So many beagle friends to play with – it was awesome.  Unfortunately, the battery on Aunty Carmel’s camera went flat just as our other friends arrived so we were only able to get one photo of Rotadom in, but Aunty Carmel said she would make it up to them next time.

And Pippen and Rebel brought some of their doggie friends with aswell and they also went swimming with us

We all had such an incredible time – even Snoopy got dirty

Mom, Aunty Carmel said she took this photo just for you so I have to put it up.  She said you would understand when you saw it.  His name is Rocco and it was his first visit to Walkhaven. 

Well, Mom and Dad, that is all for today.  We are beyond filthy and Uncle Gavin says it is time for us all to have a bath.  Thanks for the update on your blog.  I am glad to see you are having as much fun as we are ( if that is even possible ).

Garden Boys

Sup Parents, Oscar here ( I thought I would greet you like Dad greets everyone – lol ).  Hope you are having a great time on holiday and enjoyed your canoeing today.

Today was a different day for Harry and I.  Apparently, Friday is garden boy day around “The Vale” and all the neighbours around Hotel Lorimer seemed to have one, so I was very excited.  I started “talking” to them through the walls the minute I heard them.  Eventually Aunty Carmel came out and told me that I was “TALKING” too loud and that the people in Midrants could hear me.  So we were all moved to this part of Hotel Lorimer I had never seen before.  There was nothing wrong with it, it was just a lot smaller than we had come accustomed to and there was no grass and I could no longer talk to those garden boys.  We spent the morning here and Aunty Carmel told us we could go back to the nice side of Hotel Lorimer in the afternoon.

It was another very hot day today ( I heard the radio say 32 degrees ).  When we got back to the other side, Aunty Carmel and Uncle Gavin had brought out the biggest water bowl I had ever seen for us.  While I was drinking from it, that silly Jack Russell friend of mine Koda, came and sat right in the middle of it.

It was soo exciting to go back to the nice side of Hotel Lorimer, we ran and played for the whole afternoon and Aunty Carmel even played ball with me

There is this big black wobbly thing in the middle of our garden that Snoopy, Penny and Koda run and play on all the time.  Both Harry and I were very scared of it but Harry also likes it now and everytime I look for him, he is playing on this wobbly thing with my other doggie friends. 

Harry has told me that this wobbly thing is scarier than it looks and I must come join the fun, but for now, I think I am safer on solid ground so I just watch them from the sidelines

Even though we only spent half the day on the nice side of Hotel Lorimer, we were once again absolutely buggered by supper time and Harry went and passed out on the cold house tiles to cool off ( Koda said we were both silly and should have climbed into the big water bowl like he did )

Anyways parents, it is way past my bedtime and I need my handsome sleep so Harry and I send you more beagle kisses and please send us some pictures of your adventures – This Florida place looks very boring with no updates.

P.S.  Aunty Carmel says we won’t be able to blog tomorrow because they have her Company’s annual awards evening and they will only be back after breakfast on Sunday morning ( but you mustn’t worry about us – Aunty Carmel’s Dad will be here to look after us ).

It’s raining

Hey Mom and Dad, only Harry here for this one ( Oscar is too tired to come to the computer ).  Great to hear from you and glad you have arrived safely

Today started the same as yesterday but by lunchtime, we got our first official highveld thunder storm.  It was sooo awesome and refreshing, it gave us a new burst of energy and we spent the whole afternoon running and playing in the rain.

And the chase is on . . .  

Having so much fun . . .

Look at us all running ( and flying )

So much fun chasing Snoopy

 Oscar having fun with Penny Lopes – look how cute they are

 We we absolutely buggered after all that running and playing so I snuck a quick nap on the couch

And Oscar slipped to the bedroom for a snooze on the bed

Oscar said he will have his energy back by tomorrow and will come and blog again then.

We are once again sending plenty of beagle licks and kisses your way and hope that you start having as much fun on your holiday as we are having at Hotel Lorimer.

Hello Mom and Dad

Hey Mom and Dad, Harry and Oscar here.  Hope you had a good flight and have arrived safely.  All is good on this side of the world and we are having a wonderful time at Hotel Lorimer.  Aunty Carmel was busy today so we spent the day playing with our friends Snoopy, Penny and Koda

We played “Follow the leader”

And “Catch”

And took some relax time because it was very hot today

Aunty Carmel said she had a surprise for us in the evening and when Uncle Gavin came home, they took us all for a walk around “The Vale”. 

We were soooo excited that we didn’t really pose for a photo, so this is the best Aunty Carmel could get

“The Vale” is sooo pretty and we really had a great time and only came home in the dark.  We were so tired by then, we just wanted get inside and go rest

We are going to get ready for bed now.  Hope you are having a good time and hope to hear from you soon.

Sending lots of beagle hugs, kisses and licks – Harry and Oscar
