A Mangmahu Morning

 

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now this morning, the three bestest maremmas in all the land were left alone for 87 minutes (really it was more like 30 but dogs can’t tell the time) while mummy and daddy took her little white car to the garage for a service.  It was a frosty, foggy Mangamahu morning so here are some photos daddy took on the way home from Fordell.   Forgive the quality as they were taken with his very elderly un-smart phone.

 

Love Jasper, Nellie and Itai.

Treats for Lexi

treats-for-lexieGreeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now as you will all be aware Blogville recently lost one of our most popular residents.   Her boyfriend Noodle (the bestest boyfriend in the world)  has organised a day of happiness and celebration.  We three are very honoured to join in.  The only problem for Us  is mummy says everyday is a treat day for us and as she is not very organised so here is the only recent photo taken of Nellie with a tasty bone treat.

Historical Photos

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now as you all know We three live here in the sunny Mangamahu Valley, New Zealand.  One day mummy was having a look-see around this thing called the Internet and she found these photos on a web-site called DigitalNZ. They were taken by a photographer called Robert E Wells, sometimes in the 1930’s.  She is sure you’d all love to have a look at them as well.

 

We hope you enjoy them.  Love the tree bestest maremmas in all the land.

See Nellie getting some Daddy love.

The Return of S.O.D

Chatham Island forgetmenot.

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now as you all know mummy is rather cheap thrifty when it comes to buying plants.  So she was very pleased to  buy a Chatham Island For-get-me-not for the princely sum of $2.00 at the local garden centre.  She re-potted it and gave it some worm-wee and left it to grow.  Now that the weather is getting warmer she re-potted it again in a nice big blue pot with a view to putting it out in the garden, once the threat of frost has gone.

But who should pay the three bestest maremmas in all the land.  Maremmas that can do no wrong.   Why it was the naughty someotherdoggy aka S.O.D.

Look what S.O.D did.  He knocked the pot over.

Look What Daddy Came Home With

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Now as you all know We have sheep living here with us here at Chez Jasper. Well, imagine our surprise when daddy came home with a …..

 

A baby lamb

Now the decision to take a baby lamb, less that 24 hours old away from her mummy is not one that is taken lightly.  However,  this lamb was one of triplets, with one not surviving, one being very healthy and this one  being  rejected her mummy. So  daddy had to decided to bring her inside.  Also, while the sheep have access to shelter in to the wool shed,  the weather was deteriorating again so she might not have survived a night outside.

Lambie will need to be feed every four hours for the next few days so daddy is on food patrol tonight and mummy tomorrow morning.  Love the Three bestest maremmas in all the land.

Tasty Treat Time

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Now as you all know We Three are very keen on getting tasty treats. After all, are We not the Three bestest maremmas in all the land, therefore, deserving of getting as many tasty treats as We can get our paws on.  Just this morning daddy was making himself some breakfast – bacon and eggs.  Was he sharing any with the Three bestest maremmas in all the land.  No!!  So We had to practise our best groaking skills, which We are glad to say were successful.  Here is the proof:IMG_6577IMG_6579IMG_6580Don’t worry Nellie got some, but mummy wasn’t quick enough to take a  photo.  See groaking does pay off.  Love Nellie, Jasper and Itai.
