Orla and other matters

First I must tell you that Lynettea just discovered this photo on her mobile phone a few days ago. She hadn't worked out how to put the photos on the computer, but with my help they were soon uploaded. I chose this photo of the dust storm at Terrigal last September, as I thought other kitties might enjoy it. Particularly if they haven't been in a dust storm. The thought of a dust storm makes my furs all electric.
Now for a more relaxing scene: me under my beach umbrella. I don't have a beach yet, and in fact I don't think I would like the sand in my furs.
Out for Lynettea's exercise this evening, I was sitting on the warm path just inside the picket fence, wondering when Lynettea would stand up, when Orla went past leading her humans. She forces them to go for a walk every day. She is obviously as enamoured of me as ever, as she started snuffling under the gate, waving her tail about. I do feel sorry for her hopeless love, but am at the same time a little nervous. She is too young and boisterous for me I feel and I do not find that mass of unruly ginger fur attractive. If she were a cat then I could only describe her as ugly. For a dog .....?

I do not think I would like having a dog sniffing after me at all.

Wow! That picture of the dust storm is pretty wild. We don't think we'd like dust and stuff in our furs, either.

You look quite comfortable in that chair, Diamond. Maybe Orla will take the hint, and learn about relaxing from you. :)

Wow, that is quite a storm. You like cute under that umbrella.

That is a serious dust storm. We haven't had a big one like that in Melbourne for many years.

I am sorry you had to go to the vet Diamond. That is Not Fun at all. But at least you are healthy!

Over here we love our doggies.
Give the little fuzzy a chance... You may really like it!

And you look quite cozy under your umbrella!

thanks Melvin for adding my blog. I find it hard to get publicity and visitors.
