An unexpected visitor.

Blue the Pitbull

I would like you to meet Blue, the Pitbull puppy. Rather unexpectedly, he moved in for a couple of days over the weekend. It all started when I went for a run on Thursday evening, and this lovely little puppy (he is 9 months old) starting following me. And then when he almost got hit by a car I was involved. So I took him home, and he became instant friends with Emily the Golden Retriever. They promptly proceeded to spend the entire evening running up and down the passage, exhausting each other.

Blue the Pitbull

I have always heard horror stories about how violent and dangerous Pitbulls are, but this little boy has turned around any misconception that I ever had. He was the most wonderful, friendly and gentle dog I have ever met (of course with the exception of my own dogs), and I really was a little sad when his owners contacted me and he was reunited.

So Blue if you are reading this, come on over anytime, we would love to see you visit again.

Happy Birthday to Emily

Happy Birthday Emily, hope you have a wonderful 2nd birthday. You are a very cute monster dog, but no longer a puppy, so please continue to behave a little better.

First Quarter

Are your animals influenced by the moon? Mine are. Tonight the moon is in its first quarter. So I have about 3 weeks until my dogs go crazy. I don’t know why, but every full moon my dogs (OK just Calvin and Emily) bark at everything, they run around like mad, and they demand extra attention. And yes, far more than usual.

While I don’t believe in Astrology, there is a lunar influence in my animals. It reminds me of the song Zodiac Thrill by my old band Elephant Sun. Let me know what you think below.

Dog walking on Muizenberg Beach

Muizenberg beach is a favourite spot for morning dog walking. We often take our dogs for a walk on the beach on the weekends, and they love the space, the freedom and of course socializing with all the other dogs. Mostly all the dogs want to do is run around and have fun; I have seldom seen a scuffle between any dogs.

Of course you don’t need to have a dog to enjoy the beach :-)

Muizenberg beach is one of the reasons that I love living in Lakeside; It truly is magnificent.
