Spring is here!!

003Greeting loyal readers. While it is not officially spring here in New Zealand until the first of September, there is a definite feel of warmth in the air. Mummy has noticed that the daffodils are appearing in the paddock and that there are little lambs playing in the neighbour’s paddock.  Me and Nellie do not really care if it is spring or not.  There are no more tasty treats appearing and mummy still seems to go ballistic at Us if she catches Me and Nellie going for a walkabout.


We do not have any lambs this spring.  Daddy is muttering something about the need to put some sheep in the freezer.  Mummy says that some of our sheep are so old that they have progressed beyond hogget and are now old mutton and are only good for “dog tucker”.  Me and Nellie do not know what “dog tucker” means, but it does sound like there could be the chance of a getting some interesting tasty treats.  Watch this space.  Love Nellie and Jasper, who are very wet maremmas and daddy won’t let Us inside. He says We are dirty, smelly dogs and We can stay outside until We dry off.  How mean is that?

    Sweet Jasper and sweet Nellie enjoy your spring…it is still hot summer here at our place and will be for awhile yet. All the little lambs are so cute. We don’t know what “dog tucker” is either but if it is good stuff we hope you all get some of it. Hugs and nose kisses

    September 1st??? Spring (or Autumn here) officially begins around September 21 at the equinox. What am I missing?

    We are sitting here in Texas enjoying(?) 96 degree weather and are hoping to get some fall temperatures soon before we all melt. I hope you do not have such sever summers in the southern hemisphere.

  4. We’ve had some lovely late winter sun here this weekend too and I think it will be a taste of things to come – the sun will be very hot in summer, but let’s enjoy spring first when it arrives!! The lambs are so sweet, makes we want to be a vegetarian!

  5. Yikes! Sheep in the freezer? Mutton? Dog tucker?? I am a NJ city dog in the USA. This whole thing has me a little freaked out!!

    Love and licks,

    Hi Ya Jasper! Awesome photographs! We are (supposedly) still in our Summer, but the temps have changed to cooler so I am assuming that we are starting to crawl into our Fall already.

    Sounds like your seasons are moving very quickly. We are hoping Summer stays a little while since it took so long to get here. Summer makes Mom very happy. We do not care we have air conditioning to stay cool. Do not feel bad we have adventures where we get wet, smelly , and dirty and also must wait to dry before going inside.
