Mr Darcy's Diary

Gosh what a busy day today. I am in the office rearing to go and guess what – there are a whole lot of people I HAVE NEVER MET BEFORE!! Rose is here and I love Rose. She always has treats for me and Mum and I just went to the park and I was a “good boy”. You know Frank, well he has just fitted in with our team at home and sometimes he gets a little bossy. Can you imagine a “cat” getting bossy but...
Happy New Year! Thank you for my Christmas cards. Mum read them to me and there is now a new sign on the office door because I am not really a puppy anymore. Thank you Peter! You always remember me. I am going to be 2 this year and it is good that I am growing up because the koalas are really going to need me if what Mum says is right. We are all very busy at the moment planning our year. Lots of...
Mum is going on holidays soon and I don’t think I am going with her. Life will be busy though because we have people who come and go and look after all of us which is just great and the time will go quickly. Mum says it has been a very busy year, with me being sick and the koalas needing so much help. Thank you to everyone who loves me and next year we will have some exciting news for you all. It...
I know you don't want to hear this, but I have been sick again with ticks. Mum rushed home because Tim had one. Our gorgeous "Shell" who baths us found one on Tim, but my sneaky little ticks were sitting so close to my skin that everyone missed them. Tim was fine and Mum thinks it is because he is older than me (I am still little). Anyway we rushed to the Vet and he gave me that nasty injection...
Mum is going away to somewhere called San Diego. She is picking up something special. She is going to be gone for a long time but there is a lovely lady called Caroline looking after me and Tim and Polly.
Sorry I have been out of touch, but Mum and I have been so busy. We built the Cob Oven with my friends from Rockcote - gee it looks beautiful and I helped clean up all the food that Mum made on the day. Very helpful. I received lots of cards for my birthday and I particularly loved Mr. Cain's from England. He had 3 Golden Retrievers on the card, just like our family. Mum took a little video of me...
Hello Catherine. Mum said you have sent me a present because I have been sick. Thank you so much. As you can see I am better today but Mum says I have to be checked 3 times a day! I haven't seen my present yet because Mum is going to leave it at the office so it keeps longer. You know I tend to get a bit rough with some of my teddies at home and I hear it is a beautiful duck. And it QUACKS. That...
Mum and I are going to Quinlans . Lots to do. We are putting in water tanks so that we can wash up at Quinlandia and also the showers should be operational by Wednesday. Remember me helping in the sandpit, well that is a shower block now. I helped build that and it looks fantastic. Mum said I have been living with her and our family for nearly a year now. 18th October is when Mum found me and boy...
I love Vet Nurses because when you are really really sick, they let you put your head on their laps and they feed you because it is very hard to eat when you have a nasty tick bite. I have a huge hole on my side where that mean old tick bit me. Mum said it was the biggest tick she has ever seen on any of our family. My Vet Sue - she was the one who made me better, is nice too, but the nurses are...
I am in hospital and hating it! I have been really sick this weekend - those horrible little ticks again. Mum says that it is better that I am in the hospital than at home so I can have a rest and recover and not be tempted to run in the paddocks and play with Tim and Polly. Mum checks me ALL the time and I still get them. I want to ask all the humans who read my diary to double check their dogs...
