We, and when I say 'we' I actually mean my husband, are currently working on building our back fence, which is actually on the side which is most visible.
I forgot to take a photo of it today, so you'll have to just imagine it at this stage.
I'm very excited to have a fence at last for many reasons, firstly, it obviously gives us a bit more privacy and security. Once it is completed we will also be able to get a dog. We have secretly and silently been holding auditions with every dog walking past coming under our scrutinasing gazes, weighing up his/her pros and cons.
We've not been able to agree on a suitable breed as yet, in fact we are worlds away from it at the moment. My husband would like a blue cattle dog, just like our Charlie, the faux child we had years ago, but they can be a bit nippy, shall we say. He's also keen on an RSPCA dog, which is good in theory, but I'm a bit nervous about a dog whose past is a mystery to us, you never know what might set them off.
I spotted a beeee-utiful pup at the Fernvale Country Market on the weekend and chased down his owner. He was a Neopolitan Mastiff, blue in colour. Gorgeous, but $3000!!!!! That's a little out of our price range.
I tried to lure him away and he would have been up for it, but the gent on the other end of the lead wasn't. This is a fully grown Neo.
When I consider the food bill and picking up after him, and the fact they grow to 100kg, it's probably best if I keep researching.
I'm also very interested on the French Bulldog.
Magnificent creatures aren't they.
I'm also been checking the weekend paper. Did you know that one dog, crossed with another dog, to make an indescriminate breed is now worth upwards of $250? They used to be mongrels.
I think all would agree that we are still poles apart on finding our perfect dog.
We did very well at the Fernvale Market. Everything was super fresh and on the way back via Esk I picked up this lovely English stoneware jug at the antique shop. This is the still life I made when we returned home. The bale of hay (for the guinea rabbits) was double the size when we bought it. The rest is scattered along the Ipswich Motorway.
