MAXMOM here...
("Open this sliding door! Now!")

Hi there everybody,
I thought I'd put up some evidence of the 'Sweet Hooligan' in our midst.
Photographs never lie!

Sending lotsaluv

ps....Golden retriever for sale:

Responds (sometimes) to the name of 'Toby'.  Has a special talent of digging up gardens and playing in waterbowls, coupled with counter-surfing and collecting carpets off the floor.  Barks well too. Loves swimming and drying off by rubbing himself on everyone.
You can call him 'Sweet Hooligan' if you like.  
Anyone interested?


Mrs. JP said...'d never, ever part with that big ole lover boy!! But, I can tell that he's been occupying himself in the flower bed. He just needs to cuddle with you that's all.
Have a great weekend and blessings to you all from your friends in the holler....

OK, I've checked in Gail's piggy bank and it seems we have a few pennies. And I'v been SO wanting a playmate. Hey, and did you know I had my first ever roll in fox poo earlier in the week? I think we would get on so well together, Toby and I. Surely it doesn't cost THAT MUCH to ship a 'sweet holigan' over from SA to Scotland. Does it?
Surely we have a deal!
Toodle pip!
Bertie (ever the optimist).

BOl - we suspect you could get a lot of takers. If he loves to swim and can make it across the Atlantic, send him to OP.

I saw the evidence shortly before leaving. Should have washed him up for your arrival but figured it was a job best ssuited for Maxmom. SORRY! but at least you got some photo opportunities!

I am SO relieved that Toby is just a typical dog. I was beginning to think that he could walk on water and do no wrong. Nice to see him letting down his hair and giving his mom some grief!
