Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Now as you all know Me and Nellie have a human brother and sister and in November last year they sat their external school exams, refered to here in New Zealand as NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement). Me and Nellie are pleased to announce that both brother and sister passed their exams with an excellence endorsement. Brother is very pleased because this means he can bi-pass a first year maths paper at this place called u-ni-ver-sity. Me and Nellie do not know of this place. Mummy says We would not be interested in attending u-ni-ver-sity because there are no tasty treats there, but there would be lots of people at this place who could give Us the love and adoration that We so richly deserve. Sister is pleased because she will get some more certificates to go on her wall.
Remember those plums mummy and sister picked. Well, here they are being turned into yummy plum sauce.
Off Me and Nellie go. There are some cyclists coming past our house and We must be there to
woof at greet them. Sadly, they never stop and give Me and Nellie the love and attention that We so richly deserve. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.
