Day Two With Special Guests

We had such a great time on Day 1 with Noah's pinkies, Denise and Bryan, that we knew that day two had to be equally exciting or better!

Our day started with vegemite for breakie! Mom had never had it before but has had heard so much about it and couldn't wait to try it!
To mom's taste buds, it tastes like a salty beef bouillon that's the consistency of jam. It's very different from anything that she's ever had before but she liked it!
Mitch thinks it's pretty yummy too!Putter's mom, Kate, arrived just before lunch and mid-afternoon the hooman's and Mitch headed to Sleeping Giant for a hike. I didn't get to go. My early morning walkies didn't go so well and I don't like when the temps start to get warm so mom thought it best that I stay home. It was okay. Mitch and dad shared a drink of water~Mom and Kate and Denise and Bryan climbed to the top of the castle!Hey, Mitch - you look so tiny way down there! You and dad come on up!After their hike, the hooman's decided that they had so much fun at Gouveia Vineyards the night before that they were going to go again and this time Kate could experience it too. They brought Chinese take-out dinners with them and had the best time ever drinking wine and telling great stories and eating their yummy meal!Sunday morning right after breakie, dad and Bryan took me and Mitch for our 2-mile walkies while the girlz stayed home and chatted! I guess they were still tired from Saturday's hike! We have had the best time with Denise and Bryan and Kate! We feel so very fortunate that we got to meet Noah's pinkies and to get to know them a little bit better!
You guys are welcome to visit us anytime! You were awesome guests and we had so much fun!
We miss you already!

So until next time...............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Man, we live in the home of Vegemite and don't touch the stuff! It is definitely an aquired taste.

Hope you at least got some rice.

Helsie said...

Glad you got to taste our national dish - Vegemite- and liked it. I like it on crunchy cold toast with COLD butter so that the vegemite blends with the butter and isn't too strong.

I believe your visitors will bring back home sweetest memories from the State.
You said "You guys are welcome to visit us anytime", watch out, me next, me next!

(Loved the barbershop story Ami told mom...will leave the pinkies to tell that one! ahahahaha)
Wish they could come to Texas, but maybe next time!Uh, beef boullion like jelly.....salty, for brekkies.... not sure about Mom ,but Scooter and I might like it.
(Mom will try ANY foodable once. But just once if she doesn'y fancy it!)
Have a great time, noticed the pinkies reeeeely like the vineyard! ahahaha It looks lovely. Is the wine good too?

You are good hosts
You said: "You guys are welcome to visit us anytime"
Carefully, my mummy makes that true
Lots of love

Dexter said...

Vegemite, eh? Strange things from down under, but if Noah says it's OK, then I suppose it is. Great to meet the pinkies and show them around. I hear they are in Boston, but momma says that we can't have them over to the estate because things are too hectic hear. Boo hoo.


The Black and Tans. said...

How fantastic, we are so pleased you all had such a great time.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Inky and Molly said...

We're glad you got to taste some good old Aussie culinary delights such as the humble Vegemite. How did B & D get that through customs? They truly are very clever pinkies.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh we love Vegemite (cos we are Aussie dogs!!), especially if it's on toast, but our mom doesn't really fancy the taste much. Heehee...

What a lovely hike the hoomans and Mitch had.. (although I think you made the wiser choice to stay at home and not out in the heat!!)..

The Army of Four said...

What a cool adventure! And vegemite?!? Cool!
Play bows,

How Sam Sees It said...

You live in a very pretty place.


Anonymous said...

What a beautiful area for a walk. You're lucky to have castles! WOW. We don't have anything like that where I live!

You are so brave ...I might be scared going that high up and looking down. I've never tried it.

Ma won't let me eat salty stuff...I know I'm missing out on loads of goodies!

You eat for them me !! YAY!!

Glad you're having a great time with the visiting pinkies.

Pee Ess...Did I see Miss Autumn with a new hat??

LOVE from (the other) Autumn

Teddy Bear said...

What a fun time with visitors. Our Mommy says that vegemite is different but anything that tastes like beef sounds good to me.:)

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

All that hiking sounds devine!! We haven't had a decent walk in days. Nor a good night-run. Sheesh, we might need to come visit you all to get our proper exercise.
Looks like a great time with D & B and Kate. Lucky you.
BabyRD and Hootie

Archie and Melissa said...

Woof Maggie and Mitch,

Vegemite sounds interesting. We'll try anything at least once. Glad you pups had a pawsome time with your friends. Mom just loved the pictures, especially all of the green. We don't see a lot of that.

that was sure fun that you had with your visitors. we would like to come to visit you too, but our mom says we will not travel that far. something about going crazy in the car with 4 barking dogs. whatever.

Unknown said...

Hi there

We just discovered you and must say what handsome dogs you are.

We have Marmite over here and they say you either love it or you hate it - have not tried it yet as I am too young but one day soon my hoomans will find out.

Be seeing you soon

Hector and Bonny

HI Maggie and Mitch,

Joe Stains said...

Looks like you had a great visit with friends. Mom wants to try vegemite sometime too!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

What a fun time you had. Walkies and all. I am sooooo jealous.
We just got rain and mud puddles.
My moms and me like vegimite

Toby said...

That is such a cool castle!!!! We don't have any of those around here though...


Oskar said...

Friends coming to visit is so much fun!

Persephone and Buster said...

Sounds like a fun time was happening at m&m's house!... and the pinkies got an aireeedale fix..

Now you are truly international doggy-citizens, if you have experienced Vegemite. Penny likes a teensy tiny smear of vegemite on a teensy tiny piece of toast, but only sometimes (well, every time her humans have toast, which is every day, but it's really really teensy tiny).

Noah the Airedale said...

Looks like you had a great time with my pinkies with my flat self while I'm a prisoner in the kennel....Dont worry...its ok...dont feel bad......sigh
