Vera and I

This is Vera our Dog we love her and she loves us. We got Vera after the floods when her owners moved to an apartment and they gave us her either to keep or to give her to her original owner who lives in Rockhampton.
Things are now very different because we have to feed Vera, pick up poo and we now play with Vera.
I love Vera because she is so cute. She asks for tummy rubs by making a little moan and flopping on to her back. She gives lovely warm sloppy kisses. She is very funny when she stares at Daniel ready to eat any dropped food. This is because Daniel is the messiest eater.
She likes to play with balls, to have some company, attack the wheels of the wheelie bins and to chase bush turkeys and other birds.
She barks at nearly everyone who goes past but only in a playful manner because she just wants to play. If she goes for a walk with Mum she walks Mum, then they walk together and then Mum walks Vera.She tries to attack smaller dogs but she is always wagging her tail.
In Winter she comes into Mum's room and lays down. She has started getting under the desk to keep warm and she thinks that Dad won't notice she is there when he goes to bed and therefore will not put her out. She hasn't tricked him yet. When he puts her out she moans and gives him an angry face.

This morning we went to Kangaroo point to receive a $4000 cheque for my little athletics club, Toowong Harriers. We woke up very early to go to Kangaroo point around 6:00am I'd guess. We met Kochie, Mel, Natalie Barr and Anna Bligh. We only saw Grant Denyer and Campbell Newman. We had a sausage and some bacon on a bun, Yum Scrum. Eskimo Joe played live music. We then recieved the cheque went on television and left after having a Roaring good time.
