Monday was a shocking day for Miss Daisie. She is such a love, she makes friends wherever she goes. It's hard to believe she could travel all over the world, in places where dangers abound, only to be attacked in Brisbane.
|Miss Daisie's is not happy her hairdo has been messed up.|
Both dogs were on leads and we were able to pull Miss Daisie away to safety. We got her quickly back to the vet who took her in straight away to check her wounds. She cleaned her up and gave her an injection, as well as some anti-inflammatories and antibiotics to take away with us. The vet says she's lucky, no serious damage.
Daisie is a brave soul. Despite her shock, her tail still wags when she sees someone who wants to be friends. We're making sure she spends time with her best furry friends. She is recovering her usual happy demeanor and we are taking good care of her.

You might remember Johnny Cash's 1996 version of the song, "I've Been Everywhere, Man". Back in 1962 Lucky Starr recorded the Aussie version, written by Geoff Mack in 1959:
I've been everywhere man,
'cross the deserts bare, man,
I've breathed the mountain air, man,
of travel I've had my share, man,
I've been ev'rywhere."
Click here to see where intrepid traveller Peter Harris has been as he's followed the lyrics of the song.

|Sandstone was a common building material for the historic buildings in Australia's cities and towns.|
There was nothing to tell the significance of these gorgeous, quite large carved sandstone blocks. You just have to enjoy the beauty of the stone and the work of the artist.
