Hey! Milo, here. Yesterday I went for a lovely walk to the oval. We got there just before lunchtime and of course Ros brought all my favourite toys with us.

As there has been so much wet weather walks have been very hard to take but yesterday was great so off we went. Once I ran and ran and ran. I had so much fun and after so many days inside it felt fantastic to stretch my legs.

Off I go.

Running flat out! Just check out the tounge! That's how fast I was going!!

Very soon though I was getting quite hot so I found some nice sade under lovely native pine trees to have a rest.

Ros was quite worried about me as I felt quite hot. She walked me over to one of the two taps at the oval. She had brought an old water jug that had the bottom of it cut off so she filled it up to let me have a drink. Once I had had enough she tipped the rest over my back to try to cool me down.

See how my back is wet? Then after I cooled down a little bit I saw a lovely bush so I went to have a look at it.

Isn't it a beautiful bush? Aren't the flowers lovely? We then went on one more lap of the oval. I had gotten hot again so Ros said, "Time to go."

Home we go.
Half way home we saw two of my dog freinds Cara & Lola but as it was very hot be then so we didn't stop long. Ros got a quick photo.

Aren't they beautiful ? Cara the blonde is a cross between a Lab & Maremma Sheepdog and Lola is a cross between a Lab and Australian Koolie which is a very old Australian hearding breed.

So we were almost home when Ros suddenly got very excited. She told me she had come up with a great idea to cool me down very quickly. As you all know we've had lots of rain lately but what you might not know is that out the front of our house we have two ponds. One we're never allowed in because it has a liner and we could break it with our nails. We only went in once and we got one soft no and never did it again. People are always surprised how good we are about not going in. Luckily, there's another pond that we are allowed in because it's just a hole in the ground that fills up when it rains. We have a great time.

So when we got home, instead of going inside we went starigh to the smaller pond. Ros rolled up her pants and we both walked straight into the water.

I just got in.
Ros has a special saying that tells me I'm allowed to go in the water. It's Milo! Go for swim. Today this was result.

I was in heaven, Labrador style!! Then Ros had some fun splashing me which I loved and I returend the favour by shaking all over her. Ros made a fun squeaking noise every time I did it but afterwards she laughed so I think she liked it. Here is Ros spalshing me.

After a little while we both had had enough and we went in very wet, very happy, and ready for rest.

Inside we go.
I had a fantastic day. Bye for now from Milo.
