It’s a dog’s life

“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.” ~ John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog

Photos taken in Himeville last weekend. Thank you again to Underberg Accommodation for organizing our stay. If you recall a previous post, these are the dogs that took us for a walk on their farm

Himeville, KwaZulu-Natal.

Bella the bully

The photo below will bring tears to the eyes of most men… A relaxing day that turned nasty.

The sight of two sturdy males (Andy and Roscoe) having their hammock rudely occupied by “high-jump” Bella, the “lady” American Staffordshire Terrier (white & black), may be too much to bear.

She launched herself onto the hammock and two occupants in one go with a snappy 2 metre jump.

There was not even enough space left for the fleas!

Bella’s ride to the beach

Bella’s warm chair

Bella has found a new chair that is warm and moves around with her. It is a “Roscoe” type chair.

There is nothing as grand as sitting on an 11 year old male dog when you are a 5 month old female puppy!

The photo below was taken a while later when the chair got too hot.
