Peacock time

See the peacocks in the paddock.

See the peacocks in the paddock.

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. This morning, mummy went out to the house garden to pick some of the last remaining tomatoes, for her breakfast, before Jack Frost gets to them.  Of course Me and Nellie had to come too.  As she opened the gate, guess what she saw in our paddock – two peacocks!!  Thankfully mummy had the camera with her and she was able to take some photos of them before they disappeared down to the river.  Mummy says she doesn’t want peacocks anywhere near her garden. She says they are very destructive and she has enough trouble with two maremmas rampaging through her garden, without any additional help.  Off Me and Nellie go.  It is almost time for Farmer Rae to come down the driveway and We must be there to greet him.  Love Nellie and Jasper.

    As annoying as they might be they sure are purty.

    that is so cool to live somewhere where you have peacocks just strolling around!

    There are sometimes peacocks in our park but mummy doesn’t let me play with them:-(

  4. For some reason, our Mummy always tries to keep us out of the kitchen garden. Occasionally, when we sit at the gate looking adoring and pleadingly into her eyes with our big, soulful, brown ones, she weakens and let’s us in, but always says to us as we tromp gaily through the gate “stay off the garden beds!”.

    Well we try to, sort of, but the paths are not really made for Maremmas – they are too narrow – and if there is something tasty that smells nice on the bed, like some sheep pellets or blood and bone, then we must investigate!

    Surely our rights to explore where we wish matter more than a French leek or two?

    • Greetings Australian cousins. We have not heard from you for a while. Me and Nellie agree whole heartly that our rights to explore and taste whatever tasty treats that have been put on the garden, are far more important that the rights of those vegetables to grow and exist. After all We do not eat vegetables. Love Nellie and Jasper.

      • Our Mummy broke her wrist falling down a two metre rock bank, so we have been busy looking after her. Mind you, when she fell onto the ground and was howling, we didn’t think she had hurt her paw, we just thought she was getting down and Doggy!
        Mummy said to tell you she LOVES reading all your posts, she laughs heartily out loud every time and always insists on reading them to Daddy, Grandma and whoever else is around. She says you both sound very smart and clever. She also said Rosamond sounds a bit like Jasper – utterly adorable but perhaps a little naughty, always patrolling the kitchen bench and pawing her on the back of the leg when she is cooking, in the hope of tasty treats. Freya is sweet and good like Nellie, although from time to time manages to squeeze through holes in the fence a dog half our size couldn’t get through, and she barks, A LOT, if anyone dares to drive past our place.
        We wish we could all meet up for a cousins zoomie play romp on your lovely lush lawn, but unless we move back to Daddy’s homeland we suppose it will never happen.
        Hope you have been getting some rain lately,
        love Freya and Rosamond.

  5. I never even saw a peacock! I didn’t know they were garden problems. It looks to me like maremmas are excellent gardeners…. I hope your mom appreciates your help!

    Love and licks,

    I have a feeling those peacocks would scram if they saw you two!

  7. Sage says:

    Jasper, you and Nellie sure look good in that garden. Maybe you can be the scarecrows! That’d keep those peacocks away.

  8. i took peacock pics too today. they are courting so i got faned out photos

    Peacocks look like they could stand a chasing.

    I’m always learning new things here in bloggerville – didn’t know peacocks were destructive and never saw a maremma pup either until you guys but you sure are some cuties!

  11. Shannon, Mia and Brandy says:

    We didn’t have a peacock in our garden but did come upon a large snake

  12. Zena says:

    I’m sure you two can make sure the peacocks don’t touch your mummy’s garden 😉

  13. Two French Bulldogs says:

    We never saw one of those in our yard

  14. Bet Farmer Rae loves you!!!! Happy Barking – Nutty and Honey

  15. Boomdeeadda says:

    Oh how wonderful to pick some lovely garden produce with your angel white hair sprinkled lovingly all over it. You are so thoughtful.

  16. I like to help Mom with her gardening too…. but she doesn’t like it when I dig up her planties.

  17. PigLove says:

    Peacocks are so colorful and beautiful. I wonder if they would like being chased? It would be fun to try. XOXO – Bacon

    Did you taste them?

  19. That would be a great catch! Lee and Phod

    We have no peacocks to see except the zoo so I love them in your picture. It seems like two white loving Maremmas are messing up the garden a bit also?!
