My Mummy and Daddy are spending these first 2 weeks of 2008 in Johannesburg South Africa, and I am camping here in Camp Alice, with Aunt Lydia, Alice the queen and Dave the dog, back in Seattle. The weather has been atrociously wet, cold, grey and windy. Nanny Lydia has allowed us stay more often indoors.
Her living room has been converted into a doggie playground, and there are comfy cushions for us to lay in and lounge around. Alice perches on the main sofa to watch the world go by but I like laying in this brown bagel bed. Doggie toys are in boxes all around us and we play till we drop dead tired.
See all the toys around us? This is doggie heaven. That is Cedar in the top left corner of the pic. I like Cedar, but sometimes, Dave and I gang up on him, and try to herd him like sheep. He can run like the wind.
In Seattle, it really does get miserably wet and cold outdoors, its a good thing to stay warm and dry indoors. I like to stay indoors and play with toys. I have been quite bald these last couple of weeks, because Mum had just handstripped me before she left for South Africa to visit Daddy's family. She took me down all the way to the skin, and I do get cold in winter. Its a good thing my Nanny lets me play indoors. Ha, finally, my coat on my saddle (the black parts) are starting to grow in, and I am looking nice. My head still needs a couple of weeks of hair growth.
