Greetings loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Sorry, Me and Nellie have not been around for a while. The hired help, aka mummy disappeared off to Wellington, with that rock: Bashful. When they all came back home, it was with brother, he is now here from u-ni-ver-sity for three months. All sorts of things have been happening around here. Mummy found a hedgehog having a swim in the swimming pool. The water pump blew up and the house had no water for few days. Brother and sister had a party and there were lots of teenagers here, giving Me and Nellie the love and attention that We deserve. Friends have been staying and mummy has been busy cooking and cleaning. Mummy says she hopes to be more attentive towards our blog. Yeah right. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.
