When I came back from Australia I got the 'customs dog inspection' as soon as I got in the door! Jazz and Dixie sniffed out the Smackos Straps and Chomp and Chew rawhide bones I had brought back with me. Both the girls really do go 'wacko for smackos' and really enjoyed getting the filling out of the rawhide chews!

I have been in Australia for the past two weeks thus I have not posted or
visited any blogs since my last post. I had a good trip home and enjoyed my time with family and friends. I missed Jazz and Dixie and of course Shin but I did have some furry friends to keep me company while away. The first two pictures are of my grandma's cat Griggo and the others are of my sister's cats Mouse and Kitty. The last few days of my trip home were spent on Fraser Island, the worlds largest sand island. We were
surrounded by bush and the sea, it was so relxing there. Anyway once I
get settled again I will scan and post lots of cute pics of J and D at school and visit everyone's blog.

Shin was in Paris on business for the week and returned home today with a lovely gift for the girls. While there he visited an up market Paris pet shop, Pinceloup and bought new leather leads for Jazz and Dixie. They are beautifully made and smell wonderful. Of course J & D were more interested in the toys he had also bought. Jazz claimed the mouse and managed to chew the eyes and ears off! Thanks to Shin for the great presents.

The day started out badly for Jazz and Dixie today! First I overslept and they had a late walk and late breakfast, then they both had a bath which they hate and then I took them to the vet which they hate even more! So after all that torture I thought I would treat them to lunch at Tokyo People's Cafe. This is a cafe resturant that is attached to a bank, that allows dogs and has a dog menu. How much more convenient can you get - you can do your banking with your pet and while you wait you can have a coffee or something stronger! and a meal. Jazz and Dixie had their favourite black sesame cookies. People often comment on how dog friendly Tokyo seems - well this area of Tokyo that I live in is really a dog's paradise! However other areas, especially the countryside don't have many if any of the dog friendly places I always write about. A lot of country dogs are Shiba's that stay outside to guard the house. I love living here as Jazz and Dixie can do a lot of shopping, dining and playing around this neighbourhood.
