Menosukhi Special

NOW FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL... A BIG SEND OFF FOR A SPECIAL SCOTTY... to see what this means, click over to Murphy and Stanley's place.

This Blogville gathering is focused on a variety of games, one of which is ball-chasing. WEEELLLLLLLL. Jade Dog Maclean was a bit of a whiz at that one. Now I have previously posted about the great holiday in which Jade experienced her first (and only) stay away from home. There were three posts actually;
this one;
this one;
and this one!

In that order they fill out the whole story. One aspect didn't get overly remarked upon though, and that was the constant pestering of Mother and Mac-aunty to play ball!! So starting here and ending tomorrow, here are a couple of posts focused only on the ball. 

Let's hear it from Jade herself...

This was at the first stop, not far out of Sydney at one of my most favourite places of all, the Hawkesbury River.

C'mon mum, we've got ten minutes!

Once we got to Woko, we were out walking everywhere. I got off leash most of the time cuz it was all count-trees and dust tracks and stuffs and there were 'roos and coos right at our door and platypus in the river and and and... ohhh .... C'mon muuuum, I know the ball is in the bag, lemme have it, c'mon c'mon.....

See I got it I got it I got it,,, now it's your turn mum. C'mon, c'mon....

...did I mention the coos? 'Cept mum kept saying they wuzznt coos but he-moos getting fatterened for market.  I think mum wasn't all together into that.... but hey, a bone's a bone I says... Mind you, not sure I like they way they'z looking at me...

Awww, mum you're not tired yet are ya? I'm not tired, really I'm not...where'z da ball...

"RIGHT HERE BEHIND YOU MY GUURRRRL"... oh okay... are you done photopicking yet Mac-aunty, I think I might need a lie down after all...

(Okay peeps and pups - can you see the ball? Come back tomorrow when Jade is awake and chasing the darned thing again!!!)

For the new and unfamiliar Jade crossed the Rainbow Bridge six years ago...this is a memory post. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
