Greeting 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?
