Visitors and giant pumpkins

Me and Nellie under the table at dinner time.

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  As you all know,  We live out in the countryside, around 30 minutes drive from Wanganui and about 35 minutes to Hunterville on State Hwy 1.  As you can all imagine We don’t get many unannounced visitors.  Well, earlier on this week, two groups of people came to visit Us.  The first were some Jehovah Witnesses.  Mummy said they must have been full of goodness and holiness because Me and Nellie let them on the property.  We didn’t woof and We let them pat Us and tell Us what good doggies We are.  Then later on that afternoon, two more visitors arrived from mummy and daddy’s insurance company.  They were dropping off a calendar and had a chat with mummy and daddy in the garden.  Again We were the bestest behaviour doggies.  Mummy thinks it was because they were female and We didn’t see them as a threat.  It also could have been too hot for Me and Nellie and We couldn’t be bothered.

Here are some photos of mummy’s giant pumpkin plants.  They sure are growing quickly. On Sunday evening, she put a little stick in the ground at the end of the pumpkin plant and when she went to check how much the plant had grown, she was very surprised.  It must be all those tasty treats sheep pellets she has been feeding her plants.  Off Me and Nellie go.  Mummy is out watering her plants and We must be there to supervise her.  Love Nellie and Jasper.

If, you look really closely you  can see a little brown stick poking out of the gravel.

    You guys don’t leave much room under the room for human feet! On account of Eko sprawled out under the table, I often end up sitting sideways too.

    You must have NO bunnies to eat the plants. Lucky you-we can’t grow much. When they get really hungry, they ignore the thorns and eat the cactus. A pumpkin plant to them is like a peanut butter topped green bean to me.

  4. There are bunnies around but they don’t seem to eat mummy’s garden. She is very lucky. She is more worried about a peacock or a pukeko http://www.nzbirds.com/birds/pukeko.html
    getting into her garden.

    We live on a large property and rarely get visitors too. So far I have been nice to everyone that comes to the house. I don’t think I am old enough to be much protection yet.

  10. Wow! Your mummy’s pumpkins are growing really fast. Be careful not to eat too much of those tasty treets…you might grow like the pumpkins!
