Sounds of Summer

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.   Now as you all know it is summer here in the sunny Mangamahu valley.  The sounds of summer here are not the chirping of cicadas calling for mates, but rather the sound of these:chainsawIt would seem that once Christmas has past, the thoughts of the residents of the valley turn to winter and the need for firewood. Everyday, there is a chainsaw being used somewhere within our hearing.

Mummy and daddy have been out loading the trailer with wood from the downed silver birches.  Daddy thinks there should get at least seven trailer loads of wood from these trees.

Stacked wood at the wood shed.

Me and Nellie are rather concerned for We have heard talk that family might be leaving Us this weekend.  They have to go to A-uck-land to take sister to uni-ver-sity.  Me and Nellie do not know of this A-uck-land place,  but mummy says it is a very big place and We would not like it.  Too much traffic and people and not enough tasty treats for Us.

Me, tellling mummy off for daring to leave Me to go to the woodshed to take a photo.

Off Me and Nellie go.  It is almost time for our morning dinner and We must be prepared.  Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

  2. Perhaps your anipal sitter will give you special treats?

  3. How exciting for your Sister! Hope whoever is staying with you is free with the treats!

  4. I bet there will be a doggie-sitter to care for the two of you. And your parents will miss you as much as you miss them. Maybe more!

    Love and licks,

    P.S. I’ve been to a big city several times (Winnipeg), and I must say that your mummy is right. It’s pretty boring. All I want to do get get back home where I can go back on patrol duty.

    Your pups are beautiful. We have friends down the road that have dogs that look like you!! I have heard New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places and we are excited to follow your adventures!!

  8. No tasty treats? Yeah, we wouldn’t like it either.

    Lots of people and not enough treats is certainly not the place for Ziva! Although Dante would love it. 🙂
