Puppy (who weighed in yesterday at 28.6kg's ... Australian Cattle Dog [otherwise known as Blue Heeler (or red)] males are supposed to be 18 - 21kg's fully grown. And he's not fat. He's just HUGE - but very cute - even though he was in disgrace this morning. He managed to barge his way through the gate to the backyard and chase a ute down the road ... it was made VERY clear to him that I, the Alpha Female (ie the Queen Bit*h) of the house, was underwhelmed by this behaviour, and he was deposited very firmly back in his yard. He also learned that if you are a 30'ish kg dog and you're pulling against a somewhat heavier :) female .... you don't win.

Lesson learnt, he was a very good boy on our walk later in the afternoon.

I also pruned EVERYTHING ... and the pile of stuff to burn is enormous .. and wet, so it will be a while before it gets done. Hopefully in the next week or two.

I also made my first apple cake ... a layer of batter, apple mixture in the middle, layer of batter. Very very nice, Mr Tasmania enjoyed it immensely. It's one of his favourites.

I've enjoyed my two flex days .. and now have to go back and ask for some time off next Monday ... remember that job I applied for just because it was there? I've got an interview at 4pm next week. Interesting.
