Daily Woof and Weather April 13

Happy Songkran Day everybody.  I will be taking the day off to celebrate and spray everybody with my new Scooby Doo water gun.  Bark at ya tomorrow.



Daily Woof and Weather April 10

Yo Yo,

Well I spent the day getting ready for Songkran.  Even picked up my Scooby Doo water gun.  Hey, how come they don’t have a Stoli water gun?  Is this Scooby Doo guy really that cool anyway?  I think it would be a lot better having me in the show with my Stoli snacks.  I also don’t need that little scrappy guy around.  I can have my friend View instead.

So, looks like I made a big mistake and should have been on the boat today.  Our guys saw so much stuff today that my tail is still spinning from looking at all the pictures and video.  We had a full house again with Danny and Leslie doing their advanced course, Taron, Seth and Adrienne doing their open water and lots of fun divers.  Looks like everyone had a blast.

I am posting a lot of pictures today as there are so many good ones.  Also, we have some pictures of our new divemaster trainee and my buddy View in the pool.

Any winds are supposed to calm down tonight and the forecast is for no rain or wind for the foreseeable future.  This must be why we have such incredible conditions right now.

Well, let me get these pics out to you and bark at ya later,

Hey Peeps,

Well, today they didn’t take me on the boat, so I decided to go to the spa and get my hair cut and a manicure.  I want to look good because I have some playmates coming to stay with me for a few days.  I might have to take a few days off of work to hang at the beach.

The shop is still busy and they had trips to Chumphon Pinnacle, Koh Tao and Marine Park.  They even saw a whale shark at Chumphon today and we had a big family trying their first dives in Koh Tao.

Tomorrow is a little quieter with trips going to Koh Tao and Sail Rock.  And of course we have Songkran on Friday and I will be ready to get wet and spray everybody.

The weather is still hot and sunny and will be for a while so good time to be out here.

I’ll leave you with some pictures from today and bark at ya later,

Yes, It finally happened.  I went on the boat trip Friday to Koh Tao.  We were so busy that they gave me 3 DSD’s to teach.  I did a great job of course and everyone had a ball.

In between dives, I even made a new friend on Mango Bay beach and played with him on the beach when I wasn’t begging for food from everyone.  Other than that, we had a full boat of people and I got to play with everyone all day long.

After my day of diving all I wanted to do was go home and sleep.  When I woke up, I found out that my dad and Stella went for a night dive at Sail Rock.  They told me that the trip was for instructors only.  Does that mean that dog instructors can’t go?  Isn’t that discrimination?  Wait till my lawyer gets a hold of those guys who organized the trip.  Even worse, I found out they saw a whale shark on the trip.

Tomorrow is another busy day here with trips to Koh Tao and the Marine Park.  Eric, Claudio, Axel, Claire and Bruce are all on the boats with Joe still on the sideline with an ear infection.  I thought only cocker spaniels get ear infections, but I guess I am wrong.

Also, congratulations to my buddy Noah (Axel Mini Me) who completed his open water course today.

As for the weather, today was hot and sunny and we expect the same all week as usual.

I’m going to leave you with some of my pictures that I took yesterday during diving and a couple from the day before at Sail Rock.

Ok, so I have been promised again that I get to go diving tomorrow.  I am starting to think that this will never happen.  They are probably going to drop me off in a dog hotel again and go have fun.

I am sorry for not blogging a lot lately, but I have been so busy I have not had time

What I do know is that we have been crazy busy for the last two weeks and looks like it for the next week also.  I think it is because of the great diving conditions we have now.  Tomorrow we have 18 people on the boat with Eric, Claudio, Axel, Stella, Claire and Bruce all working.  Joe has to stay in the office with an ear infection.  We have all sorts of divers going tomorrow.  Courses and fund divers tomorrow.

The weather is supposed to stay real nice through the week with sunny skies and hot, hot, hot!!

I know I haven’t given you guys any pictures to look at for the past week or so, but here are some from this weeks diving.  Hope you enjoy them.

Well, looks like my dad did and early April Fools joke on me.  I was all packed up for my trip to Doggieland, and so excited and jumped in the car only to be dropped off at the doggy hotel while my dad and Stella went diving in the Similans.  That is the last time I trust that guy!!

Meanwhile, not only did I not get to go to Doggieland or the Similans, but I heard that the diving conditions here got really awesome and I had to miss it.  Sail Rock was 35 meters visibility yesterday and last week there were whale sharks there that our divers got to swim with.  We even got the boat to stop on the way back on Friday to snorkel with another one near Koh Phangyon.

On another note, last night was the big fundraiser and raffle for Dayna and it went really great.  There were some awesome prizes donated including a dinner with me.  I hope a cute girl won that one.  All in all over 100,000 has been raised to help with Dayna’s medical bills.  Since Dayna is my good friend I wan to thank everyone who helped out and donated cash and prizes.

The shop ahs been really crazy busy and not sure how they survived without me last week, but I will be back in the shop tomorrow to straighten everything and everybody out.

Today was a washout as we got a real bad storm last night and there was still a lot of rain and lightning this morning and we had to cancel the boats due to safety reasons.  the good news is that the weather got better in the morning and supposed to be good all week.

Tomorrow we are crazy again with Eric, Claudio, Axel, Bruce and Claire all on the boats with open water courses, scuba diver courses, advanced courses and fundivers.

Like I said before, today we got a little storm, but it looks like smooth sailing the rest of the week so we can get out and enjoy those great conditions.

I’m gonna go grab myself a shower and get to bed for work tomorrow so I’ll leave you with some pictures of last nights fundraiser and I’ll get some of last weeks great pictures to you tomorrow.
