Sunrise over East Africa

And a puppy-update, day nine!

Yesterday we were on our way to Mwanza for Grant to fill a dental appointment. Halfway to the city, the sun arose over the African veld.

We had a full program in Mwanza and only arrived home after 5pm.  
 Princess had missed us as much as I'd missed her and the pups

As soon as I'd kicked off my heels, I went outside to the dog shed to check on the pups.

Of course, they were asleep.

 Oh mama, life is so good!

This little mite (the first-born) has tiny slits in its eyes already!

Mum, am I still a good Mama? 

As I snapped Princess' picture above, she turned her head, spotted danger and took off into the distance!
