When Dad started packing the car, I made sure he didn't leave me behind !
"Don't be silly Bella, when have we ever left you behind ?", said Dad - well you can never be too sure...
I slept all the way , and I was really glad to arrive at our favorite holiday place, Rosella Cottage.
It's in Hall's Gap, in the Grampians National Park. Mum said there are also some mountains called Grampians in Scotland - it doesn't surprise me, so many good things come from Scotland !
We often went for walks at lake Bellfield which is near the cottage - here I am with Anais :
We saw plenty of Kangaroos on our walks, but when I said hello to them, they would hop away, what a shame, I would have loved to play with them...
Mum and Dad went to Halls Gap Zoo - they love it and go there every time we come to Rosella cottage (I wish I could come with them). They were very lucky to see some alpacas being shorn, because it's only done once a year - Dad said I look like a little alpaca, so he could use my fur to make a scarf, and then he said "Bella, don't be afraid, I was only joking !" - what a relief !
Here's what he looks like after, with his friend waiting for his turn :
So the next day, they went to Blue Moon Alpaca farm :
They bought a scarf and some hats made with alpaca wool ;I tried one on, it looks really nice and the wool is so light and soft; Dad said he got a scarf there last year and it kept him warm all winter. If you're interested, let me know because Steve (the owner of the farm) said he can ship scarves, hats and doonas anywhere in the world :
One day on a walk we saw some emus, they're very big and I was a bit scared :
Dad loves taking photos and he said I am a good photographer's dog because I am very patient when he takes a long time to take his photos; well I'm glad to be able to contribute :
What a wonderful time we had there, I can't wait to go back !
