Today is Pebbles’ first birthday. It is really quite hard to believe that almost a whole year has gone by since Pebbles came to stay. She was six weeks old when she arrived and made herself at home, and found that Nattie was very keen to make it known that the new dog would not be of a higher rank than her.

Since Pebbles’ arrival, Nattie has grown to like Pebbles quite a lot, although probably not quite as much as Pebbles likes Nattie. To say Pebbles is fond of Nattie would be a serious understatement. Nattie also seems to be happier and more active since Pebbles arrived and quite gladly joins in on ball games.
I filmed this last night as Pebbles wanted to play ball on the stairs and Nattie joined me at the bottom of the stairs where she tried to catch the balls as they came back to me. Nattie doesn’t like to run up and down the stairs like a crazy dog these days, but when I invited her up the stairs, she was very quick to find a loose ball to take back to her chair and chew on. My apologies for the video being a little bit out of focus.
A very happy first birthday to Pebbles! And a thank you to 2UE’s John Kerr who wished Pebbles a happy birthday on the radio at about 2:30 this morning.

How good is it to have another week of finals. It gets really serious from here…but not for the next few seconds…
After my resounding success of only tipping one winner (the Doggies) out of eight AFL and NRL finals last week, I’m officially tipping the Cowboys by seven points tonight, and the Rabbits by twelve tomorrow. In the AFL, Fremantle and Collingwood are my tips.
