Baby, It’s Cold Inside

IMG_6078Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now as you all know it is coming into winter here in the sunny Mangamahu Valley.  The temperature has been nice and warm through most of May, but winter has now arrived with a vengeance.  Over the last few mornings the mercury has dropped to -3 C (26.6F).  The days have been bright and sunny.

Now as you all know We live in an old house and like most New Zealand homes it is cold inside.  Mummy says it is often warmer outside than inside the house and she opens the windows to let the warm air in.  Many New Zealand homes do not have any form of central heating and insulation such as double glazing is uncommon. As you can see from this article:

The tempreture in the hall way at mid-day.

The temperature in the hall way at mid-day. 8 C degrees, positively warm.

But you need not to worry about Us three, We are all nice and warm inside with Daddy.  As all good maremmas should be.


After a frost cold start to the mornings, the days are bright and clear, if not warm

Love Nellie, Jasper and Itai, the three bestest maremmas in all the land.


See Me under a nice warm blanket.

  1. I hope you 3 are staying warm with your parents, plus snuggling with them to keep THEM warm! Mom puts my sweater on in the winter because I shiver a lot. Actually, she puts it on me in the summer, too – because of the air conditioner!

    Love and licks,

    We are experiencing Florida at high temperatures in the 90’s. It stays this way for quite a while. We are lucky when it starts to cool off in November. Stay warm.

    Not to worry, for heat you can always burn squirrels.

    Brrr this made me cold. Our summer is your winter. Wish I could send you some warmth. Hug and snuggle.

  5. ha… probably your house and my crib had the same construction company… it’s colder inside than outside… a phenomenon :o)

  6. We have a cold day here in Western NY state too. We’re suppose to have warm weather by now. But we don’t complain. If it’s not snow and ice, we’ll take it. Stay warm, friends!

    We are going into summer here. May was moderate 40F-60F (4.4C to 15.5C) now in June it suddenly is 90F (32.2C). It is suddenly out of no where so hot We can’t go outside long. You know we are winter dogs so this is ridiculous:/
