Our new baby

Yip, you guessed it. Our home is plus one bundle of fur! This brings our grand total to three. Three four-legged creatures that bring so much joy to our lives. We love them to bits. My parents even refer to them as their grandchildren! So funny!

Our new little addition is called Tiny. He is so cute and fits in like he’s been living with us forever. I first saw Tiny on the SPCA facebook page, he was found at a local shopping centre and nobody ever claimed him. Some say that he was dumped there, but I find it hard to believe.  He has so much spunk and personality! Anyway, I fell in love with him and just had to have him. Vince filled in all the adoption papers and two days later, Tiny was happy in his new home. As for my other spoilt brats (Peanut and Tyson), it took them a while to get used to him, but two weeks later, I can say that we are one big happy family :).

Winter, be gone!

It was such a cold weekend here in East London, South Africa. We froze!!! I don’t know exactly what the temperature was but it was fra-eeeezing. Apparently it was snowing on the mountains in Hogsback (about a 2 hour drive from us) and when it snows on those mountains, boy does it send us way into the lower temperatures. Winter is not my favourite season, AND we still have two cold months ahead of us!!! How will I ever survive? I wish I could hibernate, just like a bear. Oh what a life that would be…

My dogs were out on the deck lying in winter sun, desperate to warm their cold bones. Here are a few shots of them lazying about enjoying the warmth. Excuse my sausage dog, Peanut, he’s not much of a poser. I think he might be camera shy, he’s a very sensitive little chap.

As you can see, Tyson loves the camera. When he noticed that I was taking photo’s, he quickly ran inside, fetched his teddy and jumped straight back into position, ready for the next shot. He even managed to keep his tounge inside his mouth this time :). Notice in this next shot how his little tounge sticks out. It’s like that 99.9% of the time. So precious!!!

I love these two so much, they make our lives very interesting 🙂 and there’s nothing better than arriving home from work to see these two happy little creatures waiting for me at the gate. xxx

Charlie Baby 2

In my previous post about my Charlie, I didn’t do him any justice. It was a rushed post just to get something online. Sorry my Charlie xxx. I will NEVER do that again, I am better than that and I’ll make an effort to put much more time and effort into my future posts. So now, more about my Charlie baby…

We adopted Charlie when he was seven years old, he was by no means a young man anymore. We loved the little guy from day one and he loved us too (he told me so, several times). He was this chubby little sausage dog with the most amazing little fat rolls on his paws. Too cute for words. I used to pick him up and squeeze him tight, he loved that. When little  Peanut arrived at our house, all fresh and new, Charlie was besotted with him. I mean TOTALLY obsessed. Peanut was wet for two solid weeks when he first arrived because Charlie would’nt stop licking him. They loved each other so much and used to cuddle in their little bed. Never you mind that they each had their own bed!!! They would squeeze into one just so that they could be together. So adorable.

Charlie hated squeaky toys. Anything that had a squeak was destroyed in seconds. And my Charlie used to hop when he was excited and he used to drag his blankie around wherever he went. I have so many beautiful memories, my Charlie still makes me smile and always will.
