The pups relax in their enclosure after the first of their many outing every day
Yesterday Michael and I went onto the next phase of puppy orientation: integration. We started with Bibi, the smallest but cleverest pup. We carried her over to the Guest House to meet Nando.
Nando is one of the seven pups that Honey had last year. Sadly, Honey died shortly after I'd assisted the vet to spay her here in our house
Nando is not at all confident. I'm hoping that by having Bibi as a playmate, he'll become more extrovert
Bibi's first meeting with Unca Nando
Dogs have a different way of greeting each other than we have!
Unca Nando whispers something in Bibi's ear!
Bibi checks out Edward's guard hut. Edward was my askari for two years and treated Toffee and Buster very well. I know Bibi is in safe hands with him
After eight minutes of her first social visit outside our garden, Bibi was carried back to the enclosure where her siblings greeted her as if she'd been gone for ages!
Rewind to our holiday in South Africa; in particular our bike tour to the Cape. I posted about visiting Leisure Island a few weeks ago. I took many photo of the houses and especially the beautiful fences surrounding them.
A double-storied house with a low picket fence. Next door was a grey bungalow next to it with a smarter-looking fence interspersed with pillars to match it
The rustic look of this fence and gate suited the simplistic house behind it
A very romantic look: a low wall, thick hedge and a wooden walk-through gate
This imposing ironwork and brick pillared fence suited the modern house it protected
I have several more photos of walls, fences and gates which I took on this island. However, I'll leave them for a future post. Meanwhile I'm linking to TexWisGirl's meme which you can access by clicking here
I hope you're all having a great week so far!
