My Friend Rajah

By Eddie

Last week Auntie Margaret and Mama took me and my friend Rajah for a walk in Echo Heights.  We've been there before, but it has been quite a while as both Rajah and I had owies that limited our hiking abilities. We'z both feeling much better now thank you very much for asking.

My Pal Rajah

Me!  A little blurry,
cuz I was moving fast! 

I like Echo Heights - there are lots of interesting trails where we can run and sniff and pee and run some more.

Look how floofy my tail is! 

There's even a swamp that Rajah likes to go splash in, and then he rolls and rolls and rolls in the bushes to dry off.  Silly Rajah!

Oooooooh that feels gooooood!

We had a nice run and then we went back to Auntie Margaret's.  Mama is trying to get me over my fear of going into strange houses.  It's not working.  She carried me up the stairs, because I don't do stairs (but I don't panic when Mama carries me no more).  Then I belly-crawled across the floor and then raced back to the patio doors and hugged the glass until it was time to go.  I had to make sure Mama couldn't leave without me!!!

The humans had coffee and cookies.  And do you know what Rajah did?  He tried to hyp-no-tize the cookies!

You Are Feeling Very Sleepy
You Will Do Exactly What I Say! 

I think he was trying to make them fly through the air to his mouth.  If it was me, I woulda just grabbed them and RAN!  Silly Rajah!

Rajah:  I'm not silly.  I just know that a little restraint
earns me more cookies than a
Well, that's all for today.  Maybe tomorrow or the next day, mama will write something.  Us dogs is getting sore paws.

Love, Eddie.

Collies are so polite. Well done Rajah - you didn't let your stately breed down... apart from splashing in the swamp. How undignified! Don't you know that collies hate to get their feet wet?

Is that what you've been up to while I've been away! Maybe Rajah found something stinky to roll on, Eddie. He could just have been fooling everyone with that "I'm a good collie" look. Glad your leg's better. Don't overdo it and give Ms Jean grief okay? Hugs X
