Baby Troy

I found this pic of me and Troy recently and knowing that the baby sitting on my lap now weighs more than me freaks me out a bit.  And what’s even more amazing is that he’s still a puppy at heart and all 75kg wants to sit on your lap for a hug.  The pic was taken on my birthday probably about four years ago.  Happiness = Pet on Lap! Also note my stupid bloody cycling tan… Below is a pic of the ‘beast’ taken more recently.


Baby Troy

The past week I was baby, dog and horse sitting at my sisters place. Her dogs make me very happy, especially the gentle giant Troy. This is one of my fave pics of him, you still don’t see how big he really is. We actually weigh the same but I am not going to divulge that number…


Happy Place

Today I was showing a little girl photo’s on my phone of all the dogs in my life.  I LOVE dogs! When I meet one, I take a pic, no exceptions.  After looking at photo’s for about ten minutes the mother asked me “How many dogs do you have” and my answer was “none…”  If I tried sneaking a pet into our building my landlady would probably die of a heart atack, so I vent my pet need on other peoples pets.  I have to say having a sister that owns ten dogs really helps.  DON’T worry, she lives on a small holding and they are all spoilt rotten.  Eight of them sleep in the house (Big House) and some of them sleep in beds (Big Beds). She is the proud owner of 6 Boerboels, 2 Border Collies, 1 Jack Russel and 1 Snoodle.  In dog of the day I will introduce all of the pack members that patroll my happy place!

Here are two members of the pack.  On the left a young Miley.  Her name however changed from Miley (Not difficult to think where that name comes from) to a more Afrikaans version Mielie.  In the middle is Tjoeka, she is my absolute favorite dog ever! Her name was originally Stella but then it became Robba, because she is more like a seal and loves swimming.  It them became Muffie because she smells bad when she swims too much.  For some reason my sister sometimes still call her Pupster even though she hasn’t been a puppy for a very long time and weighs around 50kg. The name we allways go back to though is Tjoeka…
