More About Our Visit to Victoria

As promised here’s more about our trip to Victoria, Sue & Bill’s, and Melbourne. On the Sunday after our arrival, Sue, Fergus and I took Ascha and Emma, Sue and Bill’s girls, to the Airedale Picnic in Geelong. It was a lovely day and we were surrounded by many furries and their human companions. I’ve never seen so many Airedales in one place. It was hard not to see similarities to the four of our kids. The Australian ‘dales are much smaller – more like Terra was. There was one old guy who looked so much like Galen that we were moved by his presence.

We wished we had driven down to Melbourne so we could have brought our dogs to enjoy the day. Sue was kind enough to let Fergus and I have one dog each to chaperon for the day. Almost the entire group took their dogs for a walk in the park and towards the end of the afternoon many of the dogs were off-lead and romping around together – never straying from the pack.

Sue had packed a great lunch for the three of us and the little black noses were never too far away. We met some really great Airedale families many of the group having more than one dog. Everyone was glad to see Sue since it was the first time many of them have seen her since the fires.

On the way back to Wombat Bend the three sleepy heads napped in the back seat – Emma, Ascha and Fergus. Fergus was in heaven with one next to him and one on his lap. We had a great time.
