Canine Mates

Heres a couple of photos taken last week of some canine friends of my Border Collie “Dylan”
We have “Tim” a short haired Border Collie and “Sara” a German Shepard.
All are best of mates though Sara the female German Shepard is the pack leader the so called Alpha male in the pack (If you can have an alpha female 🙂 (eg: she wears the pants and calls the shots)
They all get along well, love a swim, chase of the ball and plenty of fussing and affection.

Dylan..Just add water

I took this photo approx 12 months ago but have been meaning to add it to the blog for a while

This is a photo of Dylan our Border Collie…our kids have all left home so he gets spoilt like a member of the family…Dylan is a walking clock with all the features of an IPhone all built into his brain…You don’t need to set your alarm as Dylan will shove open the bedroom door to remind you a new day has started and its time for a morning walk….You get home from work he gives you 30 minutes rest and then kindly reminds you time for afternoon walk….You have your meal the plates start to get scrapped and wash and there’s a bark to remind you it’s time to feed him….You sit down in your favorite recliner rocker and he will be at your feet with his chin on your slippers….I couldn’t wish for a more loyal and well natured canine member to the family..Ooh….and did i mention Dylan loves to swim….That’s right   “Dylan…just add water”

Parry’s Beach

Approx a month ago we took our new camper trailer out for its maiden trip. We decided on Parry’s Beach as it was only 75 km down the road.

Parry’s Beach makes up the western end of Williams Bay which is west of  Denmark on the WA south coast. Parry’s also has a well sheltered camping ground with shower and toilet facilities that’s nestled in amongst a large grove of peppermint tree. and cheap rates

The weather for the Friday and weekend was forecast as sunny with a slim chance of a shower..It turned out to be a major down pour with the occasional sunshine..The camper held up well and that said we still had a great weekend..The other reason Parry’s Beach suited us is the fact that we have a canine member to our family..Border Collie..Dylan..and he adores the great outdoors.

So Early Sunday morning with stars still shinning Myself  with a head torch on and with Dylan we headed down to the beach to set up the camera gear and to see if we could get a morning photo of the long stretch of sand that makes up Parry’s Beach
