Greetings loyal readers and fellow maremmas. It is the time of the year that means brother and sister are home on holiday. Me and Nellie like it when our family are home, because We are allowing inside to snooze in front of the fire and We also get tasty treats from sister, who is cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Sister and Daddy like to watch the cooking channel on Sky TV and try out new recipes. Me and Nellie are particularly keen on this because it means We sometimes are allowed to eat the left-overs. However, family think that Nellie is getting a little plumb and have put her on a diet. Nellie does not think that is fair because the only reason she looks bigger is because she has got her winter coat and she is fluffier not fatter. Brother likes all this activity in the kitchen because he gets to eat the results. Off We go. Farmer Rae is coming down the right of way and We must be to greet hi
m, with our loud barking.
