Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. December is supposed to the be the start of summer here in New Zealand. However,so far summer has been remarkably absent.  According, to our weather service, summer is running about six weeks behind because of the late arrival of winter.  Mummy says she wishes it would hurry up and arrive, she wants to be able to have strawberries and raspberries for Christmas lunch.

The first of the season's strawberries.

Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land, who are helping daddy put up the Christmas tree.

    We are sad as we had four warm days and our snow melted. We have our paws crossed for more cold and snow. Feel free to send cold air our direction and we will blow the warms stuff to you!
