Puppy's mum says: Birds I've Seen this Morning

Do you have a dog, and have questions about how to keep your dog happy? Is your new puppy having trouble settling in? Are you looking for a new puppy and aren't sure where to look?

I would love to help you with any of these issues, and more. My husband and I have bred many puppies over the last twenty years, and every puppy born at our home is important to us. Whether the puppy became a show dog or a much loved pet, it always remained 'our' puppy to some extent. We always cared about the wellbeing of that puppy.

I would love to be there for you too, if you have a new dog or pup, or if you're thinking of getting one, I would love to help you make the right choices for yourself, your family and for your puppy or dog.

Ask a question on this website, or make a comment. I'll answer you, I am here for you.

Birds I've Seen this Morning


The birds were there, company for me in the warming morning,
talking to each other as I listened and looked, trying to identify their words, spying on their ways, and keeping count of their differences.
Willy wagtail chirped and trilled, its jaunty tail flirt and wing flips
bringing me joy. The magpies pronounced judgement, then
chorused together, beautifully tuned, monochromatically toned.
Galahs frolicked and fossicked under the pine trees, hunting through the discarded pine cones, looking for pine nuts or other unknown goodies.
A pigeon flew almost unseen into pine tree branches then settled down standing tall and proud, up-pointed crest indicating it was indeed a crested pigeon, the only pigeon I like to see at our place.
One other bird seen and noted - swallow zooming in from
somewhere else, zooming off again, then back and away once more.

That was what I saw, bird-wise, plus of course various others, parrots several times, chattering once unseen in trees nearby, and a small flock of them another time, too fast over the house and away, calling in the way parrots do, in flight, a sweet call I can’t describe, but know when I hear it. I didn't see them well enough to name which type they were, so they remain unnamed.
Of course there were more anonymous birds too, small brown birds that may have been sparrows, or honeyeaters, or could have been an unseen species, one not on my list of birds seen here. 

We’ve lived here for over the twenty-five years, living in the country, in our country home, where we find peace and space, where our dogs can run and bark and nobody minds. Nature gives us much,  and the community gives us much too, friendships grow and help is given and accepted as needed, n the way it always happens in the country. Suburbs hold no temptations for me – I grew up there, but the country is where I truly live.

This blog post amuses me hugely - I'm intrigued at how a blog that talks about the birds I see in my front yard can help a person to convey their presentation in an 'institution of higher education'. I'm easily amused, and things like this give me a giggle. The person who posted this, by the way, has a blog about 'how to better play golf using self hypnosis. Hilarious!

This is their post - these anonymous people crack me up sometimes. Perhaps it's time for me to go and get a life!

Fine way of describing, and nice piece of writing to obtain facts on the topic of my presentation subject matter, which i am going to convey in institution of higher education.

It makes me imagine a dusky skinned person hunched over with a lap top or other such device, working at their 'English skills' and trying to catch unwary westerners. I'm sure there's an hilarious novel in the whole idea, but I'm too busy wandering around the internet to write it!
