Spring is Coming

Hello doggies and humans. My apologies that I haven’t been blogging for a while – I've been too busy doing nothing to do anything!

Well, spring is definitely coming and I’m loving it. Having lived in the tropics of Asia for most of my life, I’m not used to experiencing four seasons during a year. It seems like only yesterday that we were all ‘freezing ‘:


Now my walks take place in much milder weather. Take a look at what I saw during a recent outing...

The birds were out in force and they’re getting ready for ‘mating’. (Whatever that is? I think they have sex with bees!)...

...and the flowers were starting to bloom.

It was truly an idyllic setting for my walk...

This little chap was also soaking up the scenery.

We stopped for a sniff.

We then came across a funny looking two-legged dog. I’ve decided to call him ‘Wally’.

Dad soon made friends with Wally and his pals.

They all got along very well.

I must admit, I was a little bit jealous that Dad was giving his attention to Wally rather than me. Hmph!

Finally, I bumped into ‘Floor’, a three year old female golden retriever.

We were soon bouncing around like 'mad march hares'. More about this another time.

By the time my walk was finished, I was exhausted. What better way to end a spring walk than with a relaxing sit on a park bench.

I’m really looking forward to the rest of spring.

Yeah Spring is in my place too. Good to see you Homer, your place is nice in Springtime. Please say hello to Wally and his gang next time, Homer.

Yeah, Homer, we know what you mean about "seasons" -- or the lack there of. Here in South Florida it's mostly hot -- then chilly for a bit -- then maybe a little colder -- but the changes are really subtle and you'll miss them if you blink.

We wonder if Wally is an exotic goose -- he is quite elegant.

Enjoy your sprunging into spring!!

Hi Homre, I'm blog hopping in here :)

I really enjoy looking at your pictures, you are very adorable!

Good to know that Spring is already in the corner, here in Jakarta - Indonesia, we still are having rains almost everyday. So everytime when the sun comes out, Adele with her 2 puppies will go in the front yard for sun bathing :)

Well have you been/ Like we've been worried that you fell into a canal and were swept out to sea. Spring is coming here too. It was 82 degrees "F" here the other day but it was sleeting this morning. Did you know the Kingsley The border Collie is moving from Singapore to The Netherlands?

Do you already know him. What a coincidence.

Ya know, you ARE the epitome of a Casanova the way you just happen to bump into these female Golden Retrievers all the time; there's something fishy. Glad you're back, we missed hearing from you.

Your dad is very brave to approach the mating swans! Tell him to be very careful, Homer! Some of them can be quite nasty!
Your pictures are just lovely!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Ooh - Homer, what a great post! I love all your pictures, especially the one of you and Floor bouncing around together.

Hey, we also have some 'Wally-dogs' in our park too! But they are really scary - if I get too close, they hiss at me and once they chased me across the park, trying to bite my bum! Now I make sure my humans steer well clear of them when we go walking in the park...!
