Sadly the time has come for Me and My Sweet Charlotte to part ways. At least until the Valentines Dance. I have had a wonderful time in Austria but My Vickie says I have to come home now.
Soon I will be leaving again as I must be Sequestered during the judging of the Mango Minster. I cannot tell where I am going because there is some concern that some contestants might try to sway my decision on "Best Of Show" But I will be able to send you pictures of my seclusion. Yeah....(What did I get myself into)
As I sit on the plane all alone, heading home, I hear the song "Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte" "I'll see you in my dreams" softly playing in my head.
I am also dreaming of Home. Oh it will be good to be home. I bet if I was home I would be doing another walk with my buddies.
I bet we would be climbing up the top of the bird tower and walking by the river, maybe even swimming.
Gigi and Annie would be there blending into the snow covered hills with their lovely white coats.
And more of my buddies would be there too. If I were home. (Click your heels together Dorothy......I wanna go home)
In my dream I see Goose, Murphy, Me, Gigi, Trigger, Baci, Logan, Tucker, Ty and Annie
You gotta understand. WE were SOOOO close. I just had to take things into my own paws.
Now Mango, I am sorry about the plane and I sure hope you can fix it. (See Mango Minster for "The Rest of the Story".)
But Austria was there. right within reach......Charlotte......I mean, come on..... what would you do?
I mean.....JUST LOOK AT HER.
That song "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder keeps playing in my head Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful Isn't she precious
I never thought through love we'd be Making one as lovely as she But isn't she lovely made from love
When I landed, (sort of landed) the plane, I wasn't sure where to go. The other question nagging at the back of my mind was.....Where was Allred?
But fate was with me because My Charlotte found me.........
We then enjoyed a day of sight seeing. She is a great tour guide.... You can see where we went on Mango Minster Post for today during which you will notice that a few of my friends accompanied us on our adventure.
But finally during the meal, my friends took off and left Charlotte and I some time to spend together. Just the two of us. It was quite romantic.
Later in the evening we took a stroll along the banks of the river and got to know each other a bet better.
Honestly....this is just a video of what we did today. My Vickie was using "continuous" on her camera and took a lot of pictures of me, Belle, Murphy and Goose.
If you are VERY BRAVE.....turn up the sound really loud and see if you can watch the video while listening to the words. If you can do both, your an amazing creature cause this is the most different music EVER.
It might be wiser to go to Goose's Blog and just pretend I didn't make a post today.
Sometimes Michelle (Goose's Mom) comes over and helps us out. I like it cause she always finds time for me.
And now for the Saturday fun, me, Murphy and Goose enjoyed. IT was one of those crazy human games where people break through the ice then run and jump in.
This is my Forever Friend Erin. She was doing the jumping today in order to get money so she can complete some of her school studies in Spain. Is that close to Austria.....?
Now to me, this looks great...I mean GREAT...but to My Vickie, Paulette and Michelle, it was cold, wet and sloshy.
And She did it.....Erin earned $800.00 for jumping in this friged water.....Now she can go to Spain.
I got to pose with some of the kids. They were dressed pretty funny.
Erin was freezing after her leap into the cold waters. did you see how they have to go out on top of the lake about 40 feet, walking on ice, just to get to the point where they broke thru the ice to jump in.
My Buddy Murhpy sent me this picture after he got home. He was exhausted and maybe a little sick to his stomach. See while we were waiting for Erin to jump in the water, a small mole or mouse came running by Murphy. He was so shocked by it, yet even through his surprise at the little critter running between his feet, he was still fast enough to reach down and grab it, then swallow it whole.....
It all happened so quickly that he didn't really know he had swallowed the little critter until after Paulette made a scene trying to pull it out of his mouth.
It was pretty funny to watch, but we still feel bad for the little critter.
