Oh boy it is finally the snowtime I have been waiting for!!!! We arrived in Cooma which is the gateway to the Snowy mountains and one of the only caravan parks that take dogs. Mum was so excited because it is the same park she stayed in when she went around Australia with her family when she was 9. Guess how she remembered it? The playground!!! It has a pipe that you crawl through into a bunker and an old army car on the top. She said that when she was here her and her brother played armies in it for hours and she didn't want to leave. It was a bit over grown so she wouldn't let me go in. Every morning we walk past I try to go in every time but still haven't got in yet. I also love trying to eat the kangaroo poo which is everywhere but for some reason mum and dad yell at me when I do that so I just sneak it in when they don't look. It looks so like chocolate balls that I can't help but taste it to see if it is.
Once we settled in we drove towards Thredbo to see if we could see the snow but unfortunately we could only get as far as the start of the national park and the toll booth because I was in the car. We could see the beautiful snowy mountain ranges in the distance and as we got closer there was snow on the ground. We parked up and I got to eat my first bit of snow!!!! Thanks for the tip Spike and Lil Jess, I didn't eat any of the yellow snow!!! I had to wear both my jackets because it was so cold!!!!! Dad kept throwing snow balls at me and mum, and he made sure they were hard as a rock first so it hurt a bit when he did it. Mum and dad are going into Perisher in the next few days to have a go on the tubes and toboggans! Mum told me she will get him back then. We found a lovely spot near a dried up lake and had a picnic lunch and because there was no one there I got to run around and chase the footy with dad, it was awesome!
Anne So excited!! You're getting closer!! Wow, you've seen so much - what a great trip you are having. Good on you for following your dream :) Hopefully by the time you get here there will be some days of nice weather and the blossoms will be starting to come out, which is really pretty in Melbourne. We live near a river and dogs are allowed off their leash there so I'm sure you'll have lots of fun. When you come to stay with us you'll discover the park up the road too, which is really popular with dogs taking their owners for a walk. There's lots of dogs in our street, but it's nice and quiet most of the time. We've got some squeaky toys waiting for you for when you arrive - for those days that you might need to stay home while mum and dad do the touristy stuff :) Can't wait to see you. Hopefully Kipper will be in a good mood!! Watch out for Shadow though, he's sneaky ;D
