GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
MAXDOG HERE...We got up really early this morning. The Boss had to fly off to Cape Town on business and so we were up before the birds. We all took the opportunity of going outside to assess this beautiful new day....
The colours of Spring are truly magnificent at the moment. The birds' song is one of abundance and new growth. Our world is truly beautiful!
Whilst my guests were still sleeping, I went on my morning 'Sniff' to see if there was anything unusual in the air.
The canopy of new, emerald growth in our white stinkwood tree is really pretty at the moment and the rock pigeons have decided to make this their new perching area at night.
Poor little Toffee is still incredibly miserable. He is around Mom's heels all the time, but the good news is that his collar has been removed and the drain is out. Im sure he'll be better soon.
In this picture, it seems like he wants to phone a friend...
could it be LACIE?

Well, I was chatting to TAMMY this morning, and she came up with a wonderful suggestion for our overseas guests...

TAMMY says that no SOUTH AFRICAN visit is complete without some gifts!!!
So we thought about it and would like to give the following 'virtual' gifts to our friends...
TO: LACIE :
(A Zulu love letter...from TOFFEE)
TO: ASTA & KHYRA
( A Protea; our national flower)
(A stash of South African ...BILTONG)
TO THE REST OF THE CREW:
(especially PETEY, TANNER and JOEY - when he is found!?)
To enjoy with your South African sunsets!!!
In the meantime, I want to wish you all a really happy (and educational) time in our beautiful country:
Lots of happy licks

A FINAL NOTE/UPDATE:
There is no news, at the moment, about the stranded tanker in Bloubergstrand, Cape Town. The cold front has hit the area and we wait to hear of reliable updates. Perhaps the Boss will be able to give us first hand news on his return on Thurdsay. I have searched the news sites here, but other news seems to be the priority at the moment. So we wait...and hold thumbs. Luv Max.
