Anzac Day, Black and Tan Beer

It is ANZAC Day here in Australia today - April 25th.
There were special memorial services for all the Service Men and Women that have served our country.

Lest we forget.

Daddy's Grand-dad was a gunner in the Royal Australian Air Force and served in New Guinea in WW2.

Rest in peace grand-dad.

So today the pinkies and us Dales had a special walk through our favourite bush park out in Beaconsfield.

It is nice and quiet out there and Bazzy even got to walk on the flexi lead

(he has Harley's old blue one now).

We met quite a few other doggies out on their walkies and got to say hello and have a little bit of a play.

Ha ha silly Bazzy has to learn that not all other doggies are as friendly as us Dales.
A cranky old black dog growled at Bazzy and said "back off puppy".
Bazzy ran and hid behind daddy.

Look at this awesome beer that Daddy got.

It is from a Boutique Brewery called Grand Ridge out in Gippsland, Victoria.

It is called Black and Tan - just like us Airedale's ha ha.

Pinky snuck up on us while we were napping on our beds outside on the deck.......

Bazzy was sprawled out on his back snoring his little puppy head off.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Love Miss Ellie

That wasn't nice of that cranky old black dog to scare Baz! Wait till Baz grows up - you'll get him back right, Baz!
Did you guys get a taste of that Black and Tan beer? You should, ya know! It's got your names written all over it!
We just love your deck bed, Ellie! How comfy!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

We think we might like to try that Black and Tan beer! It sounds like it was just made for all of us black and tan critters! Have a great weekend, puppers!

Hi Ellie,
Wow that Black and Tan beer is great. Pinky said they'll have to try some when they visit you (without us!!!!) is September.
It's a beautiful day here in the mountains today and they're taking us out to Mt Wilson this afternoon.

Hugs and tail wags
