Maremmas in the News

Hello world, It is me, the Snowy dog. Sorry I have been missing in action for most of the year. I promise I will return. Me and Nellie and Itai are all fine and dandy. Meanwhile have a look at this link mummy found. Don’t ask what she was doing reading the Daily Mail, but it seems to be a guilty pleasure of hers.

Love from the three bestest maremmas in all the land.

A New Game

Hello world, it’s me the Snowy Dog.   Now that the weather is getting warmer, Me and Daddy like to play a new game outside on the lawn.  It is called chasey toy and it involves  Daddy chasing me around when I have a toy in my mouth.  Daddy has to try and get the toy from me, but I am always too fast for him.  See how much fun it is.  However, for some reason daddy does not like to play this game for very long.  He seems to want to stop long before I want to.  Something about not being as fit as he once was.

 

 

 

Love the Snowy dog, the bestest maremma puppy in all the land.

History Repeats

See the 200 hectare paddock (495 acres)

Hello world, it’s me the Snowy dog. No sooner had mummy posted a blog about me and Nellie’s adventures, we did it again. This time mummy and daddy were much quicker to realise that we had gone.  Somehow we managed to disappear between leaving the front of the house and arriving at the back of the house where mummy was waiting.

They were on their way down to Farmer Rae’s kiwifruit orchard, to try and find us, when mummy just happened to glance over the newly planted corn fields and what should she spy? Why two little white specks, far in the distance.

See me and Nellie.

See daddy heading off to get us back.

Going home

At home

Maybe, I should stay home with Itai. He is a good dog and never goes walkabout.

Love the Snowy dog.

The Sorceress’s Apprentice

Hello world, it’s me the Snowy dog.  I am settling down here at Chez Jasper.  I am getting bigger.  Daddy weighed me and I am now 20 kgs (44 pounds)  Not bad for a four-month old puppy.

 

Me and Nellie are becoming great friends.  Why, just last Thursday night we went on an adventure.  All by ourselves.  After our evening dinner, while mummy and daddy were giving Itai a brush, we took off down to Farmer Rae’s orchard to do some rabbit hunting.  At first it was fun, chasing all those rabbits, but then it started to get dark.  I am a little puppy and I don’t like the dark.  It makes me scared, so after 87 3 hours I started to go home, but it was dark and the orchard is so far away from home.   So I ran towards the lights, but I couldn’t get through the fence.  So I began barking to let mummy and daddy know I wanted to come home.  Of course, they were so very pleased to see me.  For some reason, Nellie got into trouble. Something about being a bad dog and leading a poor little innocent puppy into trouble.   They are keeping a close eye on us both, just to make sure we don’t go off on another adventure.

Me back with my daddy.

Me and Nellie in the sunshine.

See you all soon.  Love from the bestest snowy maremma in all the land.

See a destuffed toy. Nothing to do with me.

Snowy’s World

Hello World.  It’s me – The Snowy dog.  I am good.  I am cute. I am here.   Sister asked mummy to write a blog to show  adorable photos of me. Belive me, I am the cutest maremma puppy around here.  The fact I am the only puppy around here is irrelevant.  I am settling in well and have made friends with Nellie and Itai.

 

 

For some reason, mummy will not let me chase play with these little brown creatures that also live here.  She says that is naughty dog behaviour.

Speaking of naughty dog behaviour, daddy looked up and found me on the window seat in the front living room.

Who me?

And mummy found me on the couch with my bone the other day.

But I am still the bestest puppy in all the land.  Be back soon.  Love Snowy dog.

A Puppy Playdate

Hello World. It is me: The Snow. I am here. I am the bestest puppy in all the land, or so my mummy and daddy tell me. I am good. I am so cute.

Me in the car.

Today, I had my first puppy adventure. I went in a car to see my doggy cousin called Sketer. He is a mini pincsher. While he is older than me, I am bigger than him.  I was a good dog. It was not me, who poohed on the rug.  It was S.O.D. (SomeOtherDoggy)  Even I, a little puppy have heard whispers of the existence of this legendary dog, who gets all good dogs into trouble.

See, here is me playing. Mummy said it was very difficult to get a photo with the two of us in it, as we were running around so quickly.  Then, mummy left me for 87 hours, an hour, while she went to a meeting.  When she returned, her aunt said the I was so good and I would be welcomed back anytime.  When I got some, I was such a tired little puppy that I put myself to bed until dinner time.

Love Snow.  For some reason, mummy keeps calling me “No”.  My name is Snow, not No.  Methinks she is confused.

Flakey Snow

Hi all, it’s me – Nellie. Well, this Snow has been with us for nearly a week and I can say I am not happy with this leapy, bouncing creature that keeps on annoying me by assisting on playing with me.  For some reason, mummy and daddy are enamoured with this creature.  They pick him up and play with him and laugh when he does something stupid (which is most of the time).  Mummy swears he is getting bigger by the day.

Young and old

Me, I like to keep my distance and growl whenever this creature comes too close to me. Daddy says soon I will get used to him and maybe even play with him.  I don’t think so. After all he is not my beloved Jasper.

What do loyal readers think about this creature?  Love Nellie, Itai and creature Snow.
