However... if you use a program to check which blogs have been updated our 'feed' (mmmm yummy) will have to be changed to:


Thanks! Stay tuned for more adventures!

Hi all,

My Nana has been searching for some game rules for my nannan. If anydogs parent's have the game described below could you please leave a comment and a way for my Mum to get in touch with your humans! THANKS!!!!

The game is called 'Option' and is described as either "the family fun game" or "the double sided word game". It was produced by Parker Brothers in 1983.

Thanks you!

Mum is....

Mum is annoyed today. She said that some vindictive lady has deleted all of our email accounts so she had to make us new ones. I don't know what vindictive means but it seems to be bad... and who would delete someone elses email? What sort of person would do that? No dog that I know would!

Mum is also upset today. Nana and Nana's friend had a stall at a fair today and Mum sent some cards for them to sell for her. The reason she is upset is that none of her beautiful cards sold! If I had money I'd buy them all to make her happy.

Mum is sore today. She wrote all about why on her blog so you can read that here. She has been hopping around the house and sometimes she scares me and Carbi with her thumping!

Mum is happy today... when I give her cuddles!

Jimney, D and me

Hi everyone,

My Mum asked me to tell you about her blog. It's called Jimney, D and me. The Jimney part is my dad, D stands for diabetes and the me stands for my Mum. I don't know if you noticed but she doesn't put a capital letter for herself... why? She should write it ME!

Anyways, if you want to read a blog writen by a human - have a look at Jimney, D and me.


PS. She didn't want me to tell you this but she is getting upset at how many hits our blog get and hers doesn't get anywhere near as many - so PLEASE make her happy for me! When she's happy she gives us treats!

Don't tell Carbi that I'm telling you this... but I need you all to know what a big baby he is!

The other morning we were all happily sleeping... and all of a sudden we got woken up by a howl. Dad and Mum sat up and saw that Carbi was sleeping and he was howling in his sleep!! He was crying like a big cry baby!

He won't tell me what his dream was about. I think that he won't tell me because it he is a big baby and he was probably crying over something silly!

But shhh... remember not to tell him I told!

~Carbi doesn't look like this anymore but inside he is still a big baby!~

I'm in love!

Now some of you may remember that I have fallen in love before... but this time it's the real thing!!

I have introduced you to Shania before (here) but I didn't really know her until she came and visited me and Aramis two weeks ago. She is so beautiful. She is a chinese crested just like me - but she isn't a powderpuff.

I spent lots of time just kissing and cuddling her and letting her know she was special.We played together alot.But sometimes she'd get cranky at me and then I'd have to leave her alone for a while.

She has gone back to Sydney now... but I'll always love her!!

How mean are my humans?!

Look what they force me to endure...

How mean is that!!!

And they have forced me to play with a new toy... a moose with a grunt in his middle and squeeks in each of his feet!

Return of the Public Relations Dog!

Hi Everyone!
Sorry Carbi and I have been so slack in possting but we have been busy making this house our home, barking at the neighbours, working and keeping Mum and Dad in line.

The last two months Mum has been hogging the computer trying to get organised for a presentation that Aunty Lorraine, Phoenix, Mum and me were invited to give. It was at a Bark Busters conference and we had to tell them all about what Paws for Diabetics does. The reason it took so long is because the airlines were being mean and nasty about me flying in the cabin with Mum. I've done it before with Aunty Lorraine when she was my Mum but now they think that my Mum isn't qualified to have me on board and I'm a safety risk!! Me.... a Safety risk!!!

Anyway, so I ended up having to be stuffed in a crate and I had to travel in the hold of the areoplane with all the luggage!! AND they all called me a "PET" not a highly trained assistance animal... it was very undignified I tell you! (not that I have anything against being a pet... it's just that i'm not just a pet - mum said it's like when everyone calls her Ms Yarker and she corrects them and says it's MRS!).

So, we all traveled and met in Sydney, got in a car and went to a place called Wollongong. We finally found our accommodation (after Mum finally got the thing on the dash that was talking to us to work properly) and we had a restful evening.
The next day we got up and went in the car again. We drove to a big posh looking hotel and found the place where we were giving the presentation. Mum and Aunty Lorraine did all the talking and Phoenix and I got to sit around and look handsome/pretty.

After the presentation Bryan (I have met him before at an official lunch meeting) stood up and talked to the people in the room and told them to give us money because I look so handsome (I wasn't really listening but I'm sure that's what he must have said because everyone thinks that!). As we left he gave us over $800 that had been raised by the 40 people (approx) in the room.

We then went back in the car and drove to a shopping centre. I was happily walking along surveying the crowds when suddenly I spotted another dog! It was Gracie!!
Mum reminded me that we were going to see if Gracie, Phoenix and Shania could pass their tests to become fully accredited like me and I was going to have to do a refresher test. We all sat and ate lunch first and then we did our tests and passed.

After this we went back to the place we were staying. Aunty Lorraine and Mum spent time getting dressed and I had a sleep, then we went back to the posh place for dinner. It was dark and loud and there were flashing lights so Phoenix and I spent most of the time under the table sleeping. Then Mum stood up to talk to poeple and so I had to come out and do my public relations stuff. I shook lots of hands and waved at a few people and Mum told them all about us and the organisation and they talked to her about trainging dogs. Eventually we went home and we all got to sleep.

The next day we took Aunty Lorraine and Phoenix back to the airport and then drove to a train place.
We waited and all of a sudden I saw Uncle Dan!! We went for a drive and I started to recognise lots of places and then all of a sudden we were at Nannan's and Aunt M's!!!

After saying hello to Nannan we went into Aunt M's house to look at her computer (went Aunt M got home Mum said "I'm only back in the mountains for half an hour before you need help on your computer!!"). After fixing the computer Aunt M got home and we decided to head off before meeting them again for dinner. This was were it got fun!!

Nannan had caught a little white dwarf rabbit that had been visiting her garden for weeks. Mum and Uncle Dan were supposed to take it to Mum's sisters house for my cousin Laura. Mum put it in a box and then started to walk to the car... before I tell you anymore of the story I'd better inform you that I didn't have my lead on but was ignoring the bunny smells comming from the box. Anyways, so we were heading to the car and all of a sudden the bunny started weeing! It came out of the box in a stream all over Mum and her camera! She hurredly put the box on the ground and the rabbit pushed it's way out of the box and took off in a white blur with a black blur following it!! I couldn't help it!!! It's a dogs duty to chase rabbits isn't it??

Mum yelled at me and I reluctently left the chase and went back to her. We decided that the rabbit was a little too wild for a three year old to play with and so we went back to the car. Once again I recognised where we were and as soon as we stopped I jumped out of the car without waiting to be told I could which was another naughty thing but I was too excited to wait!! I ran to the door of the house and inside and got a big big hug from POP!!!! We were at my old home!!! It was so excited I went exploring outside to make sure that there was no new dog smells in MY backyard.

Nannan, Aunt M, Uncle Dan, Pop, Jules, Rodney, Tommy and Laura all came over for dinner. I was very tired so I went and had a sleep.

The next day we got up and went to pick up Uncle Dan. We drove to the beach on the central coast of NSW (we live on the central coast in Tassie) and Mum and Uncle Dan had ice cream.

We then went to Uncle Richard's and Aunty Kellie's and saw a new puppy called Cooper...

He was a funny looking puppy he had no fur and cired a lot. Mum ignored me a lot and cuddled the Cooper-puppy instead. Then Dom and Mia came and played as well.

~Mia and Me~

After they left Mum got the Cooper-puppy to sleep and then we left and went back to Pop's.

Early on Saturday morning, so early it was still dark, we got in the car again. We drove to the airport and Mum made me got back in the crate. I got loaded into the hold again like a piece of baggage and we took off. The landing this time was really bumpy and I bounced around in my prison. When I saw Mum again she had Dad with her and we all got in the car, said hello to Carbi and came home.

We did lots more driving last weekend. Nothing really interesting to report though so I will just post some pictures!

Mum let us stick our heads out the windows when we were on this track with noone around.

This thing is called a nut but I don't know why. It belongs to Stanley.

We had to wait in the car while Mum and Jo climbed up onto a platform to take a photo of Stanley's Nut.
I don't think it's very nice for someone to be calling us 'cliff face'... my face does NOT look like a cliff.

This bridge hurt our feet to walk over.

These are the water falls we saw (we saw a few of them).

"Wow... what a great lake!"

Yesterday we went for a big drive. We all got in Jo's car and drove, and drove, and drove.

We stopped quickly at a lookout and saw this:
Then we headed for a place called Liffy Falls were we had to walk to see water. While Mum was taking photos of the falls I decided to take a rest... in the water!!!
Aramis and I were wearing our warm water proof coats and had to wear our PFD coats over the top - we look silly when we do this and Aramis looks like he is preparing for christmas!!!

After we saw the water we got back in the car. We decided to go inland instead of to the coast and headed towards the Great Lake. Along the way we suddenly saw white stuff at the side of the road which grew!!!

There was no white stuff falling from the sky it was just on the road. Mum and Jo took some photos and Mum introduced Aramis and I to the snow. NOW I know what that white stuff is that all the dogs with blogs talk about!!! Mum took these photos of our pawprints.

Mum and Jo made little snowmen!

We kept driving and suddenly saw all this water - some of it is even frozen!!
I was sleeping on Mum's lap (I like the front seat!) and suddenly she said "oh sheep dogs!!". I sat up and looked out the windows but couldn't see them... Mum said that we had already passed them but I didn't believe her. I lay back down and then Mum said "horse dogs!". I wasn't about to fall for that again! I gave her a look and went to sleep. Unfortunately when we got home I looked at the photos from the trip and found these...

hmmm maybe she wasn't tricking this time!

Anyway... we drove and drove some more. We went down a big hill and Mum took more photos.
Eventually we made it home agian. Next week we will be going to the coast!!
Carbi xx
