The Get out dog

See the muddy Nellie.

See the muddy Nellie.

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

    Hmmmm we may have to have a barking competition. My Mom calls me “Bob Barker” BOL! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  3. Good for you two, protecting your Mom from such terrible dangers 🙂

  4. Enjoy the sunshine – may Nellie’s mud might dry out!

    Stupid rules abound all over the world. When He turned 16, He got a “learner’s permit”. He also couldn’t drive at night but instead of forbidding passengers, it was MANDATORY to have an adult in the front passenger’s seat when driving. C’mon governments, make up your mind (as if we could find it).

  6. oh dear oh dear. I recognize the mudfest, but luckily mine is 1/5 the size!! 🙂

    What did you two find in that pile of wood???? We want to know!!! We might have to go looking for some piles of wood and see what’s in them!

    • Me and Nellie found a dangerous possum. There isn’t much left of the pile of wood. We were very clever maremmas and pulled the pieces of wood out using our mouths. Brother had to come over and deal to the dangerous possum. We were protecting our mummy.

  8. Our humans are so lucky to have such wonderful wooly brave Maremmas to look after them. There are so many dangers out there!

    • And as you know there is danger everywhere. Me and Nellie are very good at warning family of danger in the middle of the night, when everyone is asleep. For some reason they do not seem to appreciate all our efforts and daddy comes out and speaks to Us in a very loud voice. Sometimes he calls Us the same names mummy uses when she catches Me and Nellie in the hen house or going walkabouts.

  9. I completely understand this! Zak also feels it is necessary to warn everyone/everything that the guard-puppy is on duty. But he is also known as ‘what-the-hell-are-you-eating-NOW???’ puppy.

    • When I was a cute, adorable little puppy, I honestly thought my name was “Jasper you little sh*t because everytime my family saw Me that is what they would say. Nothing was safe from Me: shoes, homework, pot plants, tissuea, sister’s Katy Perry tickets. You name it, I chewed it. Now I am such better except for my secret addition that mummy does not like to speak of. She says that a grown dog like Me shouldn’t be chewing these things and that I am a bad dog. How can that be? Everyone knows that I am the bestest maremma in all the land.

  10. Nellie looks great! I’ll bet most dogs have the nickname “get out”… but why?

  11. Get out is my middle name along with stop that, come here. You get the picture. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

    I get called velcro-dog just because I want to keep close to The Producer all the time, but really, she can’t be trusted. She pets anything without knowing where they’ve been! She needs me. We are service pets really, protecting our owners from themselves.

  13. Clowie says:

    Was there something dangerous hiding in the pile of wood? Our protection duties are very important!

  14. Move! Should be Doggy’s name.
    Nellie looks so cute covered on mud.

  16. Nellie I don’t think your boots helped keep the mud off you 😉
