Daily Woof and Weather February 22

What a great day I had on the boat today!  We had a full boat of fun people and I of course was the center of attention.  I even decided to waive my apprearance fee for the day because everyone was  great on the boat.

I assisted my buddy Arnould with his 3 discover scuba diving students and of course I did all the work.  Other than that I got my time to jump off the boat and swim around checking up on all of the divers.

Tomorrow we are cray busy again with 2 boats going out to Koh Tao, but I think I have to stay in the office tomorrow as I am starting a canine open water course.  Of course the first thing we have to teach in that course is to not pee in the pool during the training.

The weather was perfect again today but it looks like a little storm may be coming for Sunday.  I am pooped, so I will leave you with some pictures from today.

Daily Woof and Weather February 21

Hey Peeps,

What a great start to the day I had.  I was out this morning and caught a bird.  So of course I brought it home and put it in the middle of my living room for safekeeping while I went to work.  I come home and see my dad with the bird.  I can’t believe that he tried to steal it from me.  So, I spent almost an hour fighting with my dad over the bird, but in the end the bird split in two and each of us got a piece.  I think next time I will hide it in the yard like the other dogs.

Well, tomorrow I have been requested to go on the boat by a group of customers to Koh Tao.  I was thinking….   How come other famous people like past presidents, movie stars and even those wastes of life like the Kardashians and Paris Hilton get these big appearance fees for showing up places?

I am going to start charging also when people want me on the boat.  I think  I will start off with 10 dentabones and a steak for an appearance.  If they want extras like me jumping off the boat or diving, then the price is gonna have to go up.

Today was another great day at Discovery.  Our boat was full again to Koh Tao and we had 2 groups of PADI discover scuba divers with Axel and Joe and Claudio had fun divers.  Nick was in the pool and Arnould was watching the office with me.  I even caught the guy who has been stealing our fins.  check out the video on our facebook page that you can access with the link at the bottom of our homepage.  You can use the link for our site on the right.

Tomorrow is even busier with another full boat of Discover Scuba Divers and fun divers and another group starting their PADI open water courses with Claudio, and of course I’ll be on the boat.

The weather today was unbelievable.  32 degrees and sunny all day.  There was no wind so the seas were flat with no waves.  Looks like more of the same the next few days and then maybe something coming in on Sunday with rain and wind.  We’ll see about that.

I’d better get some sleep now as I got a big day ahead of me tomorrow.

Jipped again!!!  So, I went our last night to celebrate my best friend View’s birthday.  Me and the gang went to our usual place, The Boneyard, and things got out of hand again.  I think someone poured a pitcher of jaegerbombs into the toilet I was drinking out of because I can’t remember anything.  I didn’t even find out until this morning that my friends Dang Mo and Tong Naam had to carry me home on their backs from the bar.  Geez, I didn’t even hook up, and a dog as cute as me should never have this happen.

Even worse, I overslept for the Discovery Divers trip to the Angthong Marine Park today.  It’s even worse because I am the head tour guide.  I hope I don’t get fired over this.  I did see the pictures though and heard from the gang when they got back and what a blast they had.

We had two speedboats full of fun people and they started off with a dive at Koh Wao and then headed to the Lagoon, and from there lunch and then kayaking and a lot of beach, snorkeling and sightseeing.  Everyone had a great time and I can’t believe I missed it.  Check out some of the pictures below and on our facebook page where we have some video from our website link next to my blog.

The moral of this story is to always check what is in the toilet before you drink out of it.  That goes for you humans too.  A friendly piece of advice from your buddy Stoli.

Well, the weather today was spectacular.  Sunny all day and a high of 32, and it looks the same for the next few days.  How can you beat that?

Now it’s time to go nurse my hangover and get ready for another busy day at Discovery tomorrow.

So, today I went to the spa to get a haircut, nails done and bath.  I need to look good for the big singles party Thursday at the Boneyard.  I must say that I am looking pretty hot and all those bitches at the party are going to be after me.  This is going to bo some valentines day.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.

After the spa, I went back to help out at the office as they are so busy now with full boats everyday and lots and lots of courses and divers.  I even have put my handsome self in the window tonight to attract more people.  How can they resist me?

On the boat today to Koh Tao we had Tao and Nik with fun divers and Axel had a PADI advanced open water course and Joe and Arnould had PADI open water courses.  As we had no canine courses today I was able to take the day off.

Tomorrow is another busy day with Axel, Joe and Arnould doing courses, and Nik and Tao with fun divers and Cludio has discover scuba divers.
We also have Stella and Auy remodeling our classroom while everyone is on the boat.

The weather looks awesome tomorrow with light winds and a high of 32.  It looks great for the coming week also.

Another great day here at Discovery.  Unfortunately, I was not allowed to go on the boat today as the waves were pretty big and as you all know by now that I like to ride on the roof of the boat, Captain Aon told me I can’t go.  What a jip!!

We had a good group out today to Koh Tao.  Nik and Tao had fundivers, Claudio had discover Scuba divers, and Arnould had fun divers also.  I just hung around the office and booked a whole lot of people for later in the week.

We will have a quiet week for me as Eric and Aon decided this was a good week to do scheduled maintenance on my boat, and I think it was good timing as it looks like some waves this week.  We try to keep the boat running perfect and do all the maintenance as scheduled so it is safe for everyone.  Of course we have 3 other speedboats we can use all week so we can keep diving.

Tomorrow is looking busy also with a bunch of PADI open water students starting, and discover scuba diving students and fun divers going to Koh Tao and Sail Rock.

The weather is great if you are on the land as the sun is shining and the high temps are about 32.  We do have some wind though and some big waves today.  The waves are supposed to calm down the next couple of days and then maybe back up on Wednesday.  The next chance of rain looks like Thursday.  I never thought I would be saying this, but we could really use some rain.  I can’t remember the last time I saw rain.

Whoa!!  What a great day I had today.  My job today was babysitting Show, while his parents went diving with the Discovery gang.  We hung out together on the boat, and then played all day on the beach while everyone was diving.  I even taught him how to catch fish in the water.  The rest of the group had a great day diving in Koh Tao.  The sun was shining and the visibility was great so everyone had a good time.  I even shared lunch with my new friend as you can see in the pictures.

We have a lot more great pictures of the day that you can see on our facebook page.  The link is at the bottom of our web page at http://www.discoverydivers.com, or click the link on the right side of the blog.

Tomorrow I am going to take the day off and meet Show on the beach with his parents and get some more play time.  I can’t wait.

As far as the weather goes, looks like sunny skies all week and high temps of about 31.  Perfect for diving and coming to Samui.

Yeah, Yeah, I know that it hasn’t exactly been a “daily” woof and weather lately, but I’ve been so busy being on the boat and teaching everyday, that I just haven’t had time to do my blog.  To tell you the truth I’d rather be on the boat anyway.

I’ve been having a blast.  Sunday we took a trip to the Angthong Marine Park on our Discovery Divers Boat and we had a full boat of people and did diving, snorkeling, lunch on the beach and visited the lagoon.  They have a rule there of no dogs on the beach, but once they found out that they had the world-famous Stoli the diving dog there, exceptions were made and rolled out the red carpet for me.  Everyone had a blast and we are going to start running the Marine Park trip regularly now.

I’m also going to Koh Tao on the boat later today and can’t wait to show everyone my diving skills again.  I put some pictures of me at the Marine Park below.

Other than that we have been real busy at the shop with lots of PADI courses and fun-divers everyday.  Keeping me real busy.  Tomorrow we will be busy again with the boat going back to Koh Tao and lots of courses starting in the shop.

The weather ahs been beautiful, with pretty much no rain , but a little bit of wind coming and maybe a few waves, but that is supposed to die down tomorrow.  The high temperature all week should be around 32.

I got to get running to the boat so bark at ya later,

Stoli
