It's really hard to remember what day it is already. And time.. well time doens't exist here and the only pace is slow!
Sick dog looks a little brighter but that is probably just wishful thinking. Gemma isn't too hopeful cuz he is still being sick.
Piglet has started to come out of her cage which has a nice blanket in it and she went into it herself, she wasn't put in there by the way.
She is walking around the area, keeping her distance but is getting more comfortable. I keep trying to coax her with treats but she just lowers her head and
looks at you. Such a piercing look i can't describe it
I saw a snake wizz through the dogs yard today I was like GEMMAAAA SNAAAKKEEEE i've never seen one in the wild and i was worried it might bite a dog but
she didn't think it was a poisonous one...now i know there are poisonous snakes haha oh and frogs!
I'm also very proud to say i have not smoked once! I don't think i would dare buy them even if i wanted to at first but hey! I'm really chuffed abou that.
And i love ridiing on the back of Gemma's bike, the one chance of breeze round here!
We took some of the dogs for a swim today in the lake...which is so low the bridge is completely visible all the way down. looks a hell of a lot more rickety
in real life!
So i got to meet Fish and 3 Legs properly today. Fish is incredible he is completely blind but it doesn't seem to phase him whatsoever and he gradually lost
his sight so he's had to learn to be this way. He's so funny cuz if he's sat or lay down he will growl and make bizarre noises at nothing but then when we were walking
him down to the lake he wasn't phazed by other dogs barking he was just pottering along!!
We did some lead training today. I was expecting them to go crazy at having a lead on but they are so placid
really pleasantly surprised. You get this look of "what do you think you are doing!!!' when you give them a little tug! So funny!
Then we went to this other lake, where Gemma goes to swim and took Tiger Lilly. She's beautiful. Oh i must add that all of the dogs let Gemma hold them like
a baby. So when i'm on the back of the bike i am usually cradeling Ginger or Tiger Lilly. In fact last night i thought Ginger had fallen asleep on me.
but anyway yes this lake. To be honest if i was by myself i would have cried.. it was the most beautiful place i have ever seen in my life. I just sat atthe bottom of the
bamboo steps with Gemma in the water like wow. It was completely calm, no noise other than the odd bird or Gecko- god knows whats out there. Wilderbeast come and drink there sometimes!
That exact moment will stay with me forever i can feel it in my tummy when i think about it.
I just wish the photographs could show how that place makes you feel.
On the way back to town we saw a dog by the side of the road that wasn't in a good way.
I thought sick dog was bad but jeez. I had a lump in my throat. We got some meat and it ate that up but is obviously scared of people
Think it was hit by a car as there is something very very wrong with it's hip. Other than the fact that you can see all the bones.. I don't want to seem
like a freak taking photo's of very ill dogs, i just think people need to know in order for this project to get anywhere.
the thunder is deafening
i think the mosquitos have started biting my scalp.
either that or i have fleas... ha
