Bring him home!

Hey Mr Alfie Boe it is with great pleasure that we can finally "heed your prayer", for today, this day 29th April 2012, we will bring him home!

Now I know what some of you might think about our Radder's homecoming party.

But what can I say? Our four legged boy is as important a part of our family as any two legged member could be.

Of course we know he wont understand the banners, the balloons etc, he's a dog! But that's irrelevant because we do, we understand it, we get it!

He will appreciate however, being reunited with us as we are with him. So today Family T-J will celebrate with banners, balloons and bubbly and some delicious for doggie's only cake.

Has my attempt at justifying being utterly "bonkers" worked?

We were early for the 9.30am pick-up so we went for coffee with cinnamon & raisin toast and this was playing, it couldn't have been more appropriate and the tears came! Great band take a listen.

Goodbye Australian Quarantine Station. The pictures tell a thousand words.

A bouncy final release from Pen 34!

All roads lead home!

Open Sesame Poppa!
Ready, steady go!
Coming straight at ya, ready or not!

Ok enough posing just let me get at the Cake!
The taste test gets a big thumbs up

Fish n Chips, bubbles and a comfy blanket

Never a wrong time to "kill" the wragga toy
Radders is quick to customise the water feature!

We are home, reunited and joyful, the 3 musketeers once more, now let the busy business of our new life in Oz truly begin!

Happy first anniversary your Royal Highness's K & W, I hope you know just how extra special your day has been xxx


  1. Good morning how are you?
    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.
    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.
    For all this I would ask you one small favour:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Australia? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Australia in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:
    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
    28902 Getafe (Madrid)
    If you wish, you can visit my blog where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.
    Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez

  2. Hi Emilio

    What a creative and interesting way of seeing the world.

    Consider it done. Let me know when you receive it.

    Best wishes, Mrs T-J
