“For the rain, it raineth every day”.
Act V, Scene I, Taming of the Shrew.
Well, that just about sums it up. It has been raining for days and days. Mummy says that there are puddles in the paddocks that she has never seen before. She is worried that her newly planted daffodil bulbs will rot in the ground because of all the rain. The cows have churned up the grass and turned it into mud. Me and Nellie are sick of being muddy and therefore not allowed inside, to sit on the carpet and take our rightful place, snoozing in front of the fire. The only good thing is that it is not too cold. Mummy reminded Us, it was this time last year that it snowed over most of New Zealand. Loyal readers will remember that Me and Nellie did not like being in snow, which mummy says is a bit odd considering maremmas as a breed live in the Alps of Italy. A place where it snows. You can see some photos of Me and Nellie in the snow. https://jaspersdoggyworld.wordpress.com/2011/08/15/a-maremma-in-snow/
Me and Nellie are still concerned because We overheard mummy telling auntie that she is working this weekend and it will be daddy who is taking Me and Nellie to the V.E.T. Off Me and Nellie go. We can hear someone at the cottage and We must rush over and bark at them, through the six foot high fence that has appeared. Love Jasper and Nellie.
