Merry Christmas

We had a fantastic first Christmas day starting with presents from santapaws including ping pong balls which are fun to chase, a wand with feathers attached, and bubbles that we chased that don't pop till u touch them. Mum said santapaws also filled up our Christmas stocking at home in Sydney, but we don't get to see what's in our stocking until our holiday is finished.

We gave mum and dad lots of Headbuts and nose kisses and snuggles after they played with us.

Then we got to eat some yummy turkey and ham. We were only allowed a little taste, but it was so much better than our usual stinky goodness.

We spent the rest of the day sleeping and staying away from all the people.

Merry Christmas to everyone and we hope you had as good a day as we did.

Patiently awaiting santypaws

Gizmo here. I got the iPhone back from Denali while she was napping.

We had quite a comfortable ride for the second leg of our vacation, well at least I did. It was 8 hrs to get to mums parents farm, so I put the time to good use and had an 8 hr nap lying on my back with all four paws in the air. Didn't u know that is the most comfortable way to travel? Denali slept most of the way too.

When we got to the farm we were excited to explore. We weren't as scared of all the new smells this time. We discovered a new chrissymouse tree to climb and lots of presents. We even snooped in mum and dads bags and found some cat toys too! Then we explored all the windows. There's 5 dogs outside! They r really scary looking, but only one of them is allowed in the house and I'm much bigger than it when I stand up tall and floof out my fur. I'm not scared of him.

There are also lots of birds nesting outside the windows. Lots more than we usually see.

Now as it is chrissymouse eve, we are patiently awaiting a visit from santypaws. We have been very good apart from waking up mum and dad a lot last night, but that was because one of the nasty dogs was whining outside our window.

Merry chrissymouse to all our bloggy friends, and happy holidays. We hope u all get spoiled by santypaws!

Kangaroos on our last day of the beach vacation.

Guess what we saw out the front of the beach house this morning? Kangaroos! They were eating the grass and bouncing around on their back legs and their tail. We have tails, i wonder if we could bounce like that too? Boing boing boing...

Look at the photos of the kangaroos mum got. One of them even had a Joey win its pouch (that's a baby kangaroo).

Today we leave the beach house for our next vacation spot, mums parents farm. It's 8 hrs drive. Yuck. But I get to see sheep and cows.

We got to explore outside!

Apart from our balcony we have never been outside. The vacation house has a fenced backyard. Mum put us both in our harnesses on leashes and let us explore for an hour.

The beans went exploring on a hiking trail near the ocean while we had a nap, so we let mum show u some of her exploring pics too.

All the pics are mixed together case the iPhone won't let us move them.

Tour Tuesday

Gizmo and I thought we should give u a quick tour of some of the holiday house. Unfortunately cause we have to use the phone to write we can't label each picture, or put them in order, but they consist of the following things. Mum and dads room, me looking out the window, gizmo on the bed, the downstairs lounge room with the fireplace hidey spot, gizmos and my room, the stairs we like to play tag on, the outside deck, me on the outside deck, and gizmo and I on the couch.

We love day 4 of vacation

Day 3 was pretty uneventful. We got more comfortable in the holiday house and took every available opportunity to explore and catch bugs. Gizmo finally left the chimney to play with me, and then to top it off we both got to sleep in mum and dads bed.

Day 4 has only just begun but it is already the best day by far. The pitter patter of rain started in the early hours of the morning and it still hasn't stopped. This means day 4 is all about snuggling in the bed with our humans while they try to use the opportunity to read and relax. I spent most of the morning pawing mums stomach and chest rubbing against her book " The Chronicles of Zee and Zoe" until she put it down to pet me, and gizmo spent most of the morning snuggling in dads arms.

The pics say it all.

Day 2 of vacation was not so bad.

Denali here.
Gizmo can't blog today because he found a new hiding spot and he likes it too much to lose his spot. Up the chimney. We've never seen a chimney before and the open fireplace has a shelf just inside the chimney that gizmo can jump too. Luckily it's summer so we won't be using the fire.

The holiday house is pretty cool. There's lots of new hiding spots and it's so big. There is so much room to play tag.

We spent most of the day relaxing in the sun by one of the big windows, and then played the best game of tag as the humans were trying to go to sleep.

The humans spent most of the day at the beach, and some of them got very sunburnt.

Mum said she will have to post lots of pics at the end of the holiday to show you everything because the camera on the iPhone isn't that good and the iPhone is the only way we have Internet. Let me tell you, it's a lot harder to type on the iPhone with paws than it is on the laptop.

We hope you're all enjoying the holiday season.

First day of vacation does not live up to our expectations

Denali and I have definately not been impressed with day one of vacation so far.

First we only get a small breakfast of dry kibble to eat because mum doesn't want us to get sick on the trip. Then after they have packed the cars, mum and dad get us into our carriers. Only with all the excitement of the morning, Denali forgot to go to the bathroom.

Literally 5 mins after we leave, Denali is screaming that she needs to go to the bathroom. Oops too late. Now the whole car smells and mum had to pull over and clean out the carrier. Then the next few hours were pretty uneventful.

Mum and dad stopped at the kiama blowhole for 10 mins to show dads family and take pics. We just slept in the car.

When we started moving again I just zoned out. And went back to sleep. I felt like I was rocking back and forth. Mum said its because the road was winding. Anyway I woke up with a shock cause I didn't feel so good. Mmmmuuuuummmm please stop the world spinning! Blech I threw up. And then I also had to go to the bathroom. Talk about a lack of dignity.

Mum and dad stopped on the side of the road and cleaned me up. The noises from the cars were so scary... Like giant monsters made of metal. I tried to escape.

Back in the car we went. Finally about 20 mins later we got to the holiday house. Both Denali and I needed a bath and were so scared of the new smells, we hid in our kitty litter box for an hr.

We have now finally gotten up the courage to explore a little and the house seems kind of cool. It's so big and has lots of windows.

We can see the ocean in the distance. Let's hope tomorrow is a little more enjoyable.
