I can see jealousy ahead. Marley has a rival; the beautiful 'Ami or Amie'.
She's the new gal on the block, and has struck-up a really good relationship with Billy. Other than his own mother (who he probably doesn't remember) this is the first female dog with whom he's made friends.
She comes into the house, wanders around a bit, then plays with Billy outside for a while before returning the couple of hundred metres or so to her own new home (the Gypsy caravan).
She's a big, dark, heavy, impressive, dog, with a beautiful nature; and like Marley has made herself very much at home here. I like that about dogs, they are trusting and kind natured. The children like her too.
The majority of our friendliest local dogs have been German Shepherds. Many years ago one named Rocko would turn-up in the morning, spend the whole day with us, then return to his home (next door) in the late afternoon. His owners never said a word. Above are some of my then 10 year old son Kimbo's drawing of him.
Great drawings - especially from a 10 year old.ReplyDelete
We were all very impressed at the time; and still are!Delete
Billy is growing so fast. Beautiful dogs.ReplyDelete
We're very lucky to have so many really nice dogs around us.Delete
Friendship between dogs is always something beautiful to watch. Your son is probably very talented.ReplyDelete
Billy loves it when they come to visit him. He's in heaven.Delete
They are rather good drawings for someone of his age. Dogs and children go so well together.ReplyDelete
Lots of failures on the page, but the good ones were very good.Delete
Did you let your dogs roam to other properties too? I like the drawings. I am going to a Munnings exhibition today. Lots of horses head studies from the archives he did as a boy. Local boy he was.ReplyDelete
No, Billy stays here. Did you read my Munnings story? If not, type 'Munnings' into the search-strip top left of my page.Delete
I'll take a look. Only just read your reply here.Delete
That's what I like about dogs - they don't 'stand on ceremony' - they either like you or not and if they like you they visit and treat your house as their own. Lucky Billy I say.ReplyDelete
It's funny how they treat our house as common property. I rather like it; we never know who we'll find here.Delete
Both dogs are beauties. I am glad Billy has found another doggie friend. The drawings are very good; it's nice to see talent from a youngster.ReplyDelete
Jo in Auckland.
Yes, the drawings are very good; we were shocked!Delete
