A Noo Year Walkies Challenge

Well hey der my pals. Welcome to 2013.

I hope woo haf all had a fun and safe holiday season wif lots ob noms involved.  The noms at my house were a bit scanty fur my liking, but I was saved by kind pals wooo send me sume presents. But more abowt dat in anofur post.

Today I wants to talk abowt my New Years Challenge. Da mum & I cud bof do wif getting a bit fitter. So her has started on a healfy eating plan and we haf bof started on da 30/30 walkies challenge.

We found owt abowt this fanks to our Twitter pals Garth and Gizmo.  Chester and Gretel da weenie dogs at YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner came up wif da idea & we fink its a good one.

We started it on da 3rd of January here in Noo Zealand.  We is not fishes. Which is what we wud haf to be to start on da first day of da year because owr region was busy hafing torrential rains and funders & lightnings  and flooding.  We not dat crazy abowt getting healfy to go owt when it not really safe. 😉

Da 2nd ob February will be owr finishing day. We is gonna miss one day because ob a wedding. And der sume days of vackashion dat I’m gonna haf to trust da mum do do her walkies by herself because i will be at dawg prison camp. L  I fink her can do it.

Hopefully afta dat we be in such da habit ob it dat we just carries on. Well, dat be da idea anyways. And da Iditarod walkies challenge be coming up too. We nefur had much lucks wif dat one before because efurytime we tried it sume bad fings happened & we had to stop. Meybe dis is da year! Paws crossed.

Anyways da ofur impawtant noooos is dat it is safe fur me & da Izzy to go walkies in owr forest again. In Noo Zealand we doesns’t really say forest – well unless we just talking abowt pine tree forests fur timber. Owr native forests does be known as ‘bush.’ Dat is what owr Australia pals say too.



I fought abowt playing in dat mud. ;)

Der did be poisonous stuffs in it fur da killing ob pesky possums. But  da stuffs wud deaded us doggies too. Efen qwicker than a possum. 😦 So we didn’t want to go der. But da poison sign is all gone now.

So here is sume picktures. Some is from owr bush and sume from anofur part ob da bush near owr house too. I does luv hafing  zooomies in da bush so if wooo blinks wooo might miss me in a picktures. 😉
