Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Now as you all know Me and Nellie are maremmas, therefore We are not known for our running activities. Rather We prefer to take life quietly and have snoozes under the kitchen table. However, We are ready to leap up at an instance and start barking should the need arise.
You may have noticed that I have not been around for the last few days. Mummy has been very busy at work and socializing. Here in New Zealand it is the end of the school year and it is brother’s last year at school so mummy and daddy have been attending end of year functions at brother’s school. Last night it was house dinner and today it was prize giving and chapel. Me and Nellie are proud to say that brother got a prize for being the best science student in his year group.
Here is a You-tube clip of the house haka.
The Haka (plural is the same as singular: haka) is a traditional ancestral war cry, dance or challenge from the Māori people of New Zealand. It is a posture dance performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment. The New Zealand rugby team‘s practice of performing a haka before their matches has made the dance more widely known around the world.
Haka are performed for various reasons: for amusement, as a hearty welcome to distinguished guests, or to acknowledge great achievements, occasions or funerals.
Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.
