But what does it mean to a maremma. Well, you would be surprised to know that it means many things.. Mummy asked a few of our New Zealand maremma friends what “sit” means and here are a few of their comments.
It is “I guess I have done something wrong, but have no idea what…..ok I will sit in my own good time, just hang on a minute!””
Sit” means “you have obviously got something nice for me and I will sit when I have checked that you aren’t kidding me!
“Sit means Tux bars, and I aint gonna sit if you don’t have one.
To Me and Nellie it means. “Oh have you said something mummy, sorry I wasn’t paying any attention, can you repeat it again. Oh, “sit”. Now does that mean I should place my rear end on the ground and look attentive and interested in what you are saying, or should I look or walk the other way until you have repeated that word again. Oh, you have said it again, and now you are starting sound somewhat annoyed with Me and Nellie. How can that be? Are We not the bestest maremmas in the land. Oh, you have said that word again. Oh, well I suppose I could sit. Will I get a tasty treat? No, tasty treat. That’s not fair. Everyone else gets tasty treats. Supposed We’d better do as We re told. So We sit.
Those pesky chickens!!
Mummy was silly enough to plant some pansies and she forgot to put any chicken wire around the planter box. So, those pesky chickens dug up all the plants. She was most annoyed with those pesky chickens. Tomorrow I will tell you all about my adventure in town. Love Jasper and Nellie, who are going to help mummy move some lavender around today.
