GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
Hello there every-furry-buddy!
As Christmas draws closer, I am beginning to notice subtle changes in our household. "Maxmom's" domestic chores seem to be on the increase as she spends more and more time in her kitchen, mixing up various interesting smelling concoctions. I have been introduced to the aromas of muffins, Christmas cakes, fudge as well as all her regular tastebud tantilisers at supper time. Whew, it's hard having to restrain myself, but I am learning that if I lie in the corner, I eventually get attention.
Since the household is a buzz of activity, I simply get on with my wonderful life of
'constant fun 'n games'.
I love being "Maxmom's" shadow and I love to lie near her and dream my doggie-dreams. My dreams are even better when accompanied by the rhythms eminating from her audio set.
My wonderful canine coach - Aunt Tam' - is always on call too. She hovers near me to keep a constant beady eye on my antics. I love my Aunt Tam'! We have lots of fun together and she's always up for a game. The two of us managed to sneak into the piano room last evening for a game of 'bitey-face'.
Sadly we were caught by the 'flashy beast' and our game was cut short.
"Maxmom" noticed our absence and came to look for us.
"Outside Dogs!" she boomed.
Thankfully 'Outside' is just as much fun!
I have the pool at my disposal (and I love swimming!) and we have the best weather in the world! Bright blue, sunny skies during the day and the sounds of rumbling thunderstorms in the evening.
When the sun dips to the horizon and the afternoon cools down, "Maxmom" migrates to our garden. This is her time to tend to her plants and I get to play with the water coarsing through the hosepipe.
Has anydog got any suggestion of how to catch water?
My biting doesn't seem to work and "Maxmom" can't stop laughing at me.
Once the plants' thirst has been quenched, Aunt Tam and I congregate around "Maxmom" on the green grass where she brushes us up to our golden glory. The King does his evasive tricks at that time (I don't think he enjoys being brushed) and he initiates a loud barking frenzy at the wall with the neighbour's dogs. That's quite okay with me because Aunt Tam and I have "Maxmom's" undivided attention...We love being brushed!
That's all my news for the moment!
I want to wish you all a "dog's life" week!
