Hi Pen,

Great photo.  How come we haven't seen that before?

Dusty goes to a class over near Coorparoo.  He started a week before Bonnie.  I don't think it would be productive for them both to be in the same class.  As it was Dusty was in trouble this week.  He is the only BC in his class and so when it came to socialisation time he decided it was his resposibility to round all the other pups up.

We bought Bonnie a sand pit today to see if we could direct her digging drive away from the lawn.  As it was she dug so furiously she top dressed the lawn.

Hi Christine,

We have had all (3) previous dogs go through basic training and the big lesson was they are not training the dogs but the owners.  In those days the trainers were members of dog clubs and the fees were just to cover costs. Now, in Brisbane and I suspect most places, it is a business and you are up for an arm and a leg.  I can detect some improvement in understanding the psychology of dogs but mainly the theory hasn't changed all that much.

We had an agreement with Jess, the breeder, that we would put Bonnie through Puppy School and Basic training and we will honour that. 

Irrespective of the formality of training, I believe that dogs, particularly border collies, know when their owners love them and they respond in kind.

One problem with Border Collies it is sometimes hard to determine who is training whom. :D



Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

I have to admit that your post made me howl with laughter :laugh:  The image of Dusty rounding up all the other pups is priceless & as for Bonnie! She is a proper tyke :) Perhaps you wont need to employ a gardener >:D  Made my day!  The pictures are brilliant :)

Talking of which I couldn't actually remember if I'd posted the picture of me at Trent Bridge on a previous occasion.  I obviously hadn't!  The gent sat on my right is Michael who is a radiographer.  He found the picture & sent it to me on Whatsapp.  I was so pleased that he did - happy memory of a smashing day out.  My neighbours said the commentators on Sky were discussing me & my pink hair!

I was telling a mate that my Dad bought his first car from the Krays.   "What reg?" he asked. "No, Ronnie I think" I said!

My friend bought a signed photo of Ronnie Barker & I bought one of Ronnie Corbett.  Both for 50p...
So it's a good buy for me & a good buy for him!
Talking of the Two Ronnies I found this by accident & it tickled me!

It probably wont mean much to you but here's the original advert anyway.
Hovis

Leave with with a randomish assortment.  Not as funny as yours but I'm hungry & I have fish, chips & mushy peas calling me :-H

That's a cracking picture Pen & i have every confidence that, given the opportunity, you would have comfortably taken the catch.

Great idea about getting a goat to keep the grass down but given your penchant for pies i am just a bit concerned as to how long he would last before he also ended up in the oven.

Thanks Les :)  I think I was trying to help Mark Wood take the catch :laugh:

I love pies & most food as you probably realise :-H  Have never tried goat so I think he might be safe :laugh:

Just a bit of friendly advice Pen, maybe cut down on drinking so much " pink muck " & your hair might return to its natural colour. :)

Hi Pen,

One tired Pup
slightly more decorous

I didn’t recognise you without your motorcycle helmet. I wonder what colour Les's hair is?

     
Blue went to the doctor’s and told him, “I feel like such a failure. All five of my boys want to be valets when they grow up.”
 
The doctor said, “Wow, that’s the worst case of parking son’s disease I’ve ever seen.

Blue had some landscapers take care of his lawn every weekend for several years. Recently, he hired a new crew, but forgot to fire the old crew. So this weekend they both showed up to mow his lawn, and got into a fight over who should be there.
 
Blue had no idea he had started a turf war.


Blue was entertaining a couple of guys from Sydney who thought they were hot shots.  They are sitting around a table in a fancy restaurant. They’ve just finished their meal and have ordered some brandy. While they’re waiting for the brandy, one pulls out a cigar and a $50 bill. He sticks of the bill into the flame of the candle in the centre of the table and uses it to light his cigar. Not to be outdone, the other  ulls out a cigar and does the same thing with a $100 bill. Blue laughs and says, “You cheapskates!” He then pulls out a cigar, writes a cheque for $1000 and lights his cigar with it.

Hi Jack

I think something like this would suit Les  :laugh:

Obviously the model is a lady but I'm sure he'd appreciate the subject matter in view of his penchant for the nags >:D
Or maybe he'd prefer something like this? :laugh:


Smashing pictures but I was a bit surprised that Bonnie didn't seem to appreciate the golf on the telly ;D

       

I put a bet on a horse to come in at 10 to 1 – and it did! Unfortunately all the others came in at 12.30.
I put a bet on a horse that had excellent breeding. After the horse left the starting gate, he stopped and closed it behind him.
What’s a horse’s favourite TV show? Neighbours!

A man was sitting quietly, reading his Sporting Life one morning, when his wife sneaked up behind him and whacked him on the back of the head with a frying pan. "What did I do to deserve that?" said the man.
"What was that piece of paper in your trouser pocket with the name Daisy written on it?" his wife asked.
"Oh darling, you remember two weeks ago when I went to the races? Daisy was the name of one of the horses I bet on." The wife looked satisfied and apologised.
Three days later the man was once again sitting in his chair reading when his wife hit him on the back of the head with the frying pan. "What in the world was that for this time?" the man asks. "Your horse just telephoned!"

G'day Les
Perhaps I should swap from "pink muck" to red wine & have a change!  What do you reckon?

I reckon that you are quite dangerous enough just as you are.
Liked the horse jokes & the horse head wear definitely appealed to me.

Hi Pen,

Digging? Moi? Just because I have dirty Paws?

I need my beauty sleep because I am becoming a big girl

If I didn’t have ears, my smile would have gone right round my head at your jokes.

I was listening to Macca all over Australia on the radio and I found out why the crows fly backward in the dry outback.  It’s to keep the dust out of their eyes

       


Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

I love that expression :)  Your post has gone a long way towards cheering me up.  I'm a bit fed up & grumpy as back to work tomorrow :(  I can't really complain as I've had a smashing week & the weather has been glorious :)

I definitely think Bonnie's growing like the clappers!  She's as cute as a button :-*

I've been learning German for twenty years. It's zwanzig Jahren.

I like to watch Love Your Garden when I have my tea and then True Crime before bed. I feel really confident being able to bury a body and know what to plant on top of it!

My neighbour has been playing the same Lionel Ritchie song over & over at full blast...
I wouldn't mind normally, but it was all night long!

I reckon the week off has agreed with you Pen as you have up with a string of very funny posts over the last few days which left me with a big ;D

Thanks Les I had a smashing week :)  Back down to earth with a bump this morning :(  It was pitch dark when my alarm went off at 6pm - a real shock to the system!  First day back is always the worst!
        


What's green & dangerous?  A gooseberry with a machine gun!

I couldn't find any decent dangerous jokes or cartoons so on that note I'd better get back to the grindstone :laugh:

What's yellow and dangerous? - Shark-infested custard.

The old ones are definitely the best.

You're right Mike.

That was one of my favourite jokes when I was a kid.  Along with What's black & white & red all over?  - a newspaper!
