Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. It has been very quiet here at Chez Jasper. Daddy and brother are in Wellington and sister is off seeing a One Direction in Christchurch, so it has been up to Me and Nellie to keep mummy company. Now as loyal readers know Me and Nellie are the bestest doggie woggies in the land but for some reason mummy does not share that notion. She is forever saying things like; ” Hoy get out of there, you two”, “Hoy what do you think you are doing Jasper?” and “Hoy, move you two great furry lumps and get out of my way”. Me and Nellie think that mummy does not appreciate our guarding abilities. After all she is our flock and We have to be with her at all times. Do you feel, loyal readers that your families do not appreciate all your doggie efforts to protect and guard them. Me and Nellie feel under appreciated. Love Nellie and Jasper. It is time for our morning dinner and We must be seated and ready for its arrival.
