Happy The Thief
Cheeky Little Happy had a great time at the main house the other day, played with all the dogs, especially gentle Queenie and small Alaska, and proudly carried one of the toys off to her little house, where she unfortunately had to go back to, to be quarantined again because another tapeworm showed up. But she is getting all better, the medicine and vitamins and the love and care are working well.
Visiting Gaby and Hans at the Garceta Lodge
Two lovely people live at the other end of our village, Gaby and Hans, and we finally had the time to visit them for a few hours last Sunday. We had a great time with coffee and cake and a glass of wine at the river. They have loads of animals at their place, and it is simply gorgeous! There is also a little crocodile in the pond that wandered up from the river during the last flood, and lots of guinea hens, and chicken.
Coatimundis, usually roaming free, but caged for our convenience because they like to jump on peoples backs :-)

Happy gets introduced into the Family
During her first visit at the main house, tough little Happy was completely unimpressed by the other, huge dogs and the two visiting dogs hovering over her. She made herself comfy, played a bit, rested and was just what she was supposed to be: a Happy Dog at the Happy House.
For the time being, she is just coming over to visit, and actually since yesterday, she is back in quarantine at the Hobby Lobby and her dog run, because we found a huge tape worm.
But the vet was here already and as soon as she is all good, she will come back to the main house to see her doggie friends!
