Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremma. Me and Nellie are what mummy refers to as her get out dogs. She is always saying get out to Me and Nellie.
“Get out of the kitchen, Jasper””
“Get your head out of the rabbit cage”
“Get out of my way, you great furry git”
“Nellie, Get out of the hen house”
And the list goes on and on. Somehow, We think mummy does not appreciate our efforts to be with her at all time.s But Me and Nellie must be with mummy. That is our job. We have to protect mummy from all danger. Be it a terrifying possum, or a dangerous hedgehog, or the villainous meter man. They are warrant our attention. And We do this by barking. Lots and lots of barking. Maremmas are very good at barking and Me and Nellie are experts at it.
Mummy is happy for brother passed his restricted driver’s licence yesterday. In New Zealand you cannot sit your driver’s licence until you are 16 years old. First, there is the theory test to pass, which enables you to be able to be taught to drive. Then after 6 months you can sit a practical driving test and get a restricted licence. This means you can drive yourself, with no passengers between the hours of 5 am and 10 pm.
Off Me and Nellie go. It is a beautiful Mangamahu day and Me and Nellie are going to sit in the sun shine and enjoy the warmth. Love Nellie and Jasper
