Daily Woof and Weather March 26

I am so excited.  I just found out from my dad that tomorrow he is taking me to Snoopy World.  The Doggy version of Disney World.  Four days of Doggy heaven.  First I’m going to go to Boneland where everything is a bone and chewable, and then off to postman land. (we all know what does on there), and finally to fire hydrant land.   Fire hydrants as far as you can see.  I am going to make sure to load up on my water before that one.  I think after Snoopy World my dad may take me diving.

Today we had a great trip to Sail Rock.  Finally it cleared up and we had 25 m + visibility.  We even had a diver today who is a U.S. Army General on leave from Afghanistan.  I decided to sit that dive out for fear of underwater snipers.

The bad news is that I won’t be able to do my blog for a few days, so you will have to get along without me.  I’ll fill you in on everything when I get back.

Well, off to pack so bark at ya later,

Daily Woof and Weather March 24

Hey Everybody,

Another great day here at Discovery Divers.  I spent the whole day in the office catching up on my paperwork while the guys had fun on the boat today.  We also had Stella out by the pool doing try dives.

Today the guys had open water courses and DSDs in Koh Tao.  Joe told me that Shark Island was beautiful today.  It’s good to see that conditions are starting to get great again.  Hopefully I can get out there soon and dive.

I spent a lot of the day helping plan for the fundraiser we are having next week for my friend Dayna to help with her medical bills.  I hear that she may be able to leave the hospital tomorrow.  The whole dive community here in Samui has pulled together and really come through with a lot of cash to help and the dive shops are all donating stuff to raffle off at the party.

Who will win the dinner with me?  I hope a cute girl, but I will take the highest bidder of course.  We will start at 10,000.

The weather is more of the same, but boy was it hot today.  i think today was the hottest day we have had all year.

I’ve got to get back to my work now so

Another hot and sunny day here in Samui.  A scorcher.  I’m thinking of getting totally shaved at this point just to stay cool.  Luckily I was able to spend the morning at the beach with my dad and go swimming all morning.  Work can wait.

The gang at the shop had a great day though.  Joe and Claudio had a really fun day with a group of 6 DSDs over in Koh Tao.  I saw the pictures from the day and what a blast!!.  I think Claudio’s arms might be tired though.

Tomorrow is not too busy.  We have some fun divers for Sail Rock and courses starting.  Maybe I can take another day off???

The weather?   You guessed it, sunny and hot again.  No change for the foreseeable future.

I’ll leave you with some pictures of today’s group and..

Yo Yo Yo,

I took the day off from work today to help organize a party-fundraiser for my pal Dayna who is still in the hospital.  We are going to have it on Saturday March 31, at Hush in Soi Green Mango.  I have barked at a lot of the dive shops around the island and we are going to have a raffle with some great prizes to give away.  I even am going to donate a dinner with me at one of my favorite restaurants.  Maybe I can even get my favorite bar “The boneyard ” to throw a party.

Now back to the diving.  Congratulations to David and Jun in completing their open water course and to Stella in completing her Emergency First Responder course.  Now I feel safer if something happens to me with her around.

Tomorrow we have a big group of people trying scuba diving for the first time going to Koh Tao.  They will have a blast I am sure.

The weather is getting to be a broken record.  Hot and sunny with no rain.

Hey Peeps,

Well, I tried to go and visit Dayna today at the hospital, but they said they have a “no dogs” policy.  That sucks.  I just wanted to cheer her up.  So I spent the rest of the day trying to find a disguise to get in.  I think if I just put on some cool shades I can sneak past the receptionist.

Other than that a busy couple of days here at the shop.  Congratulations to my good friends Rafael and Maite in completing their nitrox courses.  Congratulations to my best friend Stella who completed her rescue diver course today.  Today was a fun day on the boat with boats going to Sail Rock and to Koh Tao.

Tomorrow we have boats going again to Koh Tao and to Sail Rock with all different courses and fun divers going.

As far as the weather goes, again more of the same.  Hot and sunny.  There is no rain or wind in the forecast for the foreseeable future.  I hear from some of my old pals at Tails and Trails in Lake Tahoe and they got almost 5 feet of snow in the last couple of days.  I remember when I used to jump around in that stuff.

Well, I am off to try on some more disguises so I will

Hi Everybody,

I am sorry, but I am very sad today as my friend Dayna, who is also one of the instructors at Discovery had a little accident on the motorbike and is in the hospital.  She also helps me write my blog a lot of the time.

Me and all my doggy friends and the staff at Discovery hopes she gets better soon and can hang out with me again.  I will try to sneak into the hospital later and try to cheer her up.

Another hot and sunny day here in Samui.  It is so hot that I didn’t even want to leave the house today.  I only want to go out in the early morning or later in the day.  The good news is that the winds are changing this week and we expect the diving conditions to be awesome from here on out

I stayed in and rested today as I have a busy day tomorrow.  I have to be at the shop at 7:30 as I am starting 4 open water students tomorrow.  I will be asissted by Karl and Joe.  Also Axel will be taking fun divers to Chumphon Pinnacle tomorrow.

Today also was very busy.  Congratulations to Dennis for completing his open water course today and to Rafael in completing his rescue diver course today.  It’s good to know that Rafael can save me if I get into any trouble in the water.  Of course i will try not to lick him if he has to give me rescue breaths.

We got a busy week coming up, so I need to get some rest before my busy day tomorrow.

As far as the weather goes, the forecast says no rain all week and very hot.  I think I will have to spend a lot of time in the water cooling off.
