Cate has almost finished her training. She walked 40 miles on the weekend and tried to walk another 20 miles yesterday. We had yet another of our gigantic thunderstorms and she got caught many miles from home and I had to rescue her. She made the inside of my car very wet.
One more weekend here and she is off to Ecuador. I follow a week later to collect the remains at the finish line.
I have installed a Camera so we can keep an eye on Georgia when we are out - via iPhone or iPad. We can talk to her if she is behaving like a lunatic - which she often does.
I got her a harness so that I can anchor her to the seat belts when we go out. The first time I used it she got it off somehow and chewed thru one of the straps. Back to Petco.
I left her lead in the back seat when we went out. Back to Petco.
I got my new chewable toys from Amazon and she immediately shredded and ate part of the first one - which is supposed to be indestructible. She also discovered the legs of one of our lounges and started to chew thru that. It looks like beaver has been here. I have ordered new legs - but will not put them on until she is done chewing - if that ever happens.
Cate has accepted the inevitable about her garden. It is called learned resignation. So far Georgia has not murdered any plants but she does run over them and dig around them. It looks like we have moles.
She buries bones in her bed and then tears the bed apart looking for it.
We are getting constant storm, flood and tornado warnings. So far the house does not appear to have sprung any leaks.
Sometimes I think it is probably better if I don't read the Sydney Morning Herald. But I do and I see that after our troglodytic prime minister instructed the Clean Energy Finance Corporation not to invest in wind power - he has also instructed them not to invest in rooftop and small scale solar projects.
He has previously tried to shut down the Clean Energy Finance Corporation but was stopped by the Greens in the Senate. Now he is trying to make it fail by stopping it lending.
No surprises really. He is really very fond of coal and probably has it on his toast instead of vegemite.
I had not expected much of this man but I did not expect him to try to actively destroy the renewable energy sector in Australia. What an asshat.
