Mr Darcy's Diary

Boy have I been busy, sorry I haven’t been writing. Miss Bennett takes up a lot of my time. This last week we all got into a lot of trouble because Miss Bennett, who loves gardening shredded a whole lot of Mum’s plants while she was at work. You know how you feel guilty when one person gets into trouble and you know that you could have stopped them. That’s how Time, Polly and I felt. Miss Bennett...
Mum said I am very clever because I am teaching Miss Bennett everything I know and that means I am very smart. Mum said that, not me! Yesterday 3 big cockatoos came into our backyard and I “told” Miss Bennett to just sit quietly and watch them. I can’t say things like “that’s Mummy’s Mr. Darcy”, which is what Mum used to say to me, but I just sort of sat there with her and she got what I meant. I...
Quinlans was just fantastic and Miss Bennett (who you can see is on a lead) and I saw the cows on our front paddock. They are there to eat all the grass and also fertilize the paddock for us to grow our Bush Tucker in the future. Miss Bennett was very bossy with them and Mum said “no”, quite a few times. We were there for nearly 5 days and it rained and rained and rained and rained and like...
Mum said Miss Bennett is allowed to come to Quinlans for our strategic planning meeting (whatever that is). That means I get to show her everything including the billabong at the front gate. She is going to love that because Miss Bennett is half golden retriever (I am a full golden retriever) and she just loves water like me. Mum said she is also half Marema which is a big dog that likes to look...
Miss Bennett and I having a bath and this was her first time ever.
I have had a great Christmas and summer holidays and my new companion and I have hit it off from Day 1. Mum said I am just a "lovely boy" and that I have learnt everything about teaching from my Grandpa - you remember him, his name was Dane and Mum said I could wear his Christmas collar. Big shoes to fill, but I don't wear it on my feet, I wear it on my neck.
At our house which Mum says is our home there is this huge big picture thing and every day when Mum says “come on Mr. Darcy, let us watch the news”, all sorts of things come in to our lounge room. It is amazing really and I haven’t really taken much notice of it until now because I have been too busy saving Koalas with Mum. Last week, there was this great thing which showed a lovely dog (I am a...
I know, I know, I am always talking about snakes and today is no exception. When we went to bed last night a little snake got caught on the door of our bedroom and Mum had to get my friend Bill to come and get him this morning. That meant we got to have a sleep over on the verandah and we could see Mum. Usually when we are in the garage we cannot see her. It was a little scary being in the dark,...
Quinlan’s. Well, you know I love Quinlan’s and even though I am still a little bit scared, I want to tell you a story. You have to promise that after I tell you, that you will still love Quinlan’s because snakes mustn’t make us too scared, we all have to be brave. Well, Mum and I went to Quinlan’s the other day because Jono, Banjo and Dylan are all there making Quinlan’s even more beautiful, and...
Save the Koala Month is nearly over and boy have I been busy. Sending out donation boxes, getting ticks (I had 7 one day) and watching a bird that lives at our place make a HuuuuGGGGGeeeee nest. We call him Mr. Reg and there is a Miss Reg. Mum said they want to get married and he has to build a HUUUUUGGGGEEEE nest to make her marry him and have babies. I spend a lot of my time watching him...
