It doesn't get better than this!
05.12.2012 - 17.02.2013
So it looks like we are off again! We've had such a great time in Denmark and I just don't want to leave. I'm going to have to get used to being on a lead again and being tied up all the time. Boring!
And I'm going to miss my girlfriend too! We've had so much fun together even though I think I annoyed her most of the time. We had such a good time on Xmas Day. We both received a bone for Xmas. Bonnie didn’t know how to open up her present so Mum had to give her a hand. (Unlike me who just ripped the paper off with my mouth.)
Because Mum and Dad are selfish and went out a lot without me, me and Bonnie hung out at home quite a bit. Bonnie wasn’t the type of girlfriend that liked to play but she did love chasing other animals. And she taught me how to chase them too! We chased rabbits, foxes and cows. The next door neighbour has cows and he sometimes lets them onto Uncle Brett’s property. If they go too close to the fence near the cottage Bonnie told me that we can bark and chase them. They didn’t really go near the fence that much so after a while I got bored with that game so I said to Bonnie that we should just chase the cows whenever we see them. She agreed that was a better game so we did! Mum kept yelling at us to stop but Dad thought it was funny. After a while the cows got used to us and they were also heavily pregnant so they didn’t bother moving when we barked at them.
Mum played ball with me every day. She’s not a very good thrower and we lost the ball a couple of times in the hedges. They also bought very cheap tennis balls which I chewed straight away and I didn’t realise that when tennis balls had holes in they sunk so I lost a couple of tennis balls in the pond. (And Mum had to buy more. Serves them right for being scummy with their money)
Even though Mum and Dad were working, they seemed to find the time to do lots of things. They mainly just went to wineries and ate food. (And they wonder why they have put on weight) They enjoyed Singlefile Wines for their great chardonnay, riesling and lunches, Whitfield Estate for their chardonnay and marron and fantastic service, Boston Brewery for their beer, Rickety Gate Wines for their Sauvignon Blanc, Denmark Farmhouse for their yummy cheeses, Estate 807 for their Rose, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and great service, The Toffee factory for their toffee and cider, Mrs Jones and the Message Teahouse for their coffee, Pepper and Salt restaurant for their magnificent food and wonderful hospitality, Mombaki Wines for their chardonnay, Rockcliffe and Somerset Hill for their sparking white wine, Harewood Estate for their riesling, Forest Hill Vineyard for their chardonnay, The Lake House for their chardonnay, sparking white wine and platters, Swiss Annie’s chocolate lounge for their coffee and brioche and the Denmark Berry Farm for their berry ice cream.
Mum and Dad also went to Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks at William Bay National Park which they said was beautiful and a great spot for swimming. They also went to Walpole-Nornalup National Park where they got to see lots of big trees and they even went to Perth for a few days (all without me).
When the oldies weren't gorging on food and drink they took us to the beach. I loved swimming at Lights Beach and Anvil Beach.
We also had lots of fun swimming in the dam at home. And Bonnie loved going to the avocado trees and picking avocados. She really enjoyed eating them. (They weren't really my cup of tea)
Bonnie did teach me a bad habit of rolling around in cow poo. I admit, even I thought I stunk so there were many times when Mum dragged me to the dog wash.
During the last couple of weeks, we've had a horse named Blue stay with us. At first I just thought she was just a big dog so I tried to play with her but she didn't like that. Then I thought she was a cow so I started barking at her and she ran around the yard and Mum started yelling at me and explained what sort of animal she was. So now when we go and see her I have to behave.
So after a superb couple of months in Denmark we are saying goodbye to all the fantastic people we have met and are heading to Manjimup for a few days before heading to Margaret River for a couple of weeks.
