I thought that it was about time that introduce you to my 'third child' - Isobel the Spoodle! Isn't she gorgeous! For those who don't know the spoodle breed - they are mix of cocker spaniel and poodle (Isobel is a mini-poodle) and I think that in the US they are called a cockapoo? Isobel is such a lovely dog - with a beautiful, but slightly nutty - nature. She just loves living here up at the farm, where she spends her days rounding up the cattle, fending off the brown snakes and keeping Stella, my 18 year old stock horse, company. Here, she is helping me plant out the vege patch (which, by the way, is growing beautifully with all this rain). Soon we'll have winter veges a plenty. How wonderful!
