Did time fly, or did we sleep a few years?

Good Morgan everyone!

This afternoon we received an email that ‘someone’ was following my Blog…  I didn’t see them following it, or else I would sure have stopped to speak to them!  However, this made HuMom remember I had a blog, and she then spent AGES (when she could have been playing with us…) reading through it and giggling a lot.  It’s her fault I have not written in my blog for YEARS – she has been too busy to put my chair in front of the laptop so that I can write.  HOWEVER!  Today she asked me “Morgie Porgie (I love it when she calls me that) do you want to start writing your blog again?”  Well, you can imagine my answer!  So here I am!  Writing my blog again.  I hope the people that used to read my blog will still have computers!

There has been SO many changes here at Tanyati since the last time I wrote to you.  I don’t know where to start.  We Emma-grated AGAIN, there were more puppies AGAIN, I got a new sister from a far away land AGAIN, I got a new BROTHER from another far away land AGAIN, we won more battles AGAIN….. PHEW!

I will start at the best bit – we Emma-grated to the MOST amazing place.  HuDad gave us all a very wonderful Christmas present when he bought this amazing paradise for all of us.  We all love it and have loads of room to play.  Everyone has their own little village where they live, and we all get a chance to visit the other villages when HuMom tells us “It’s time to socialise!”.  That’s always loads of fun.  For most of us.  Just not ONE person, who always complains…..  More about my brother RAFFY another time.  He is pretty cool most days, but he can complain!  LOUDLY!

This is where we now live….

Election Time at Tanyati!

Good Morgan everyone!

So, HuMom says it is election week.  She says that we need to vote for our favourite party.  I said I’d like to vote for a party where there are lots of presents and cake and stuff.  Erin says she’d like to vote for a party where there are lots of soft toys to play with.  Shakira says she’d like to vote for a party where you get to sleep in the sun all day.  🙂

HuMom says we have the wrong idea!  So she explained it all to us and we have formed 2 parties.  The first one is Bella’s party.  She calls it the “Fawns Have More Fun Party”.  My little brother Zanto (who can’t speak very good English, but he’s trying) was chosen to lead the other party and so he called it the “Brindles Are Beautifulest Party”.  HuMom looked like she was about to say something about Zanto’s English, but then she just patted him on the head, kissed him on the nose, and said “That’s a lovely name my boy!”.

So, on Wednesday we are all going to line up (HuMom says we have to do it without arguing or calling each other names) and then we are going to vote.  I can’t wait.  On Tuesday Bella and Zanto will each get a turn to tell us all why their party is the best and why we should vote for them.  Personally I think Bella is very beautiful and I don’t care what she says.  I will vote for her.  I told HuMom that I was going to vote for Bella even though Zanto says brindles are ‘Beautifuller’ and she said that voting is supposed to be a secret and so I must not say who I will vote for.  But I’ll still vote for Bella!

My brother’s Tiglets

Good Morgan everyone!

Well, my little brother’s babies have arrived.  They are very cute, and they all have tiger stripes, just like my sister Maya.  I do not think they are as beautiful as MY babies, but HuMom says I must not say that sort of thing out loud….  I have been watching the tinies trying to walk and I think the problem is that they are too fat and their legs are too short!  HuMom says it’s because they are only 2 weeks old and that they are actually doing very well, but I’m pretty sure I was running around the garden at 2 weeks old.  🙂

Here is a picture of my little brother when he was telling us all that his babies had arrived.

HuMom says we can keep one of the girls and we are all VERY excited!  We are all thinking up names.  I want to call her “Cuddles”, ‘cos that’s my favourite thing in the world.  My daughter Kayla wants to call her “Fluffy Toy” ‘cos that’s her favourite thing in the world.  HuMom just laughs at us and says SHE will choose her name.  I hope it’s a good one!

More little Tiglets on the way…

Good Morgan everyone!

There’s a lot of excitement here at Tanyati today! My tiger striped sister, Maya, is going to have puppies! HuMom sat us all down this morning to tell us the news that Maya will have babies and that her husband is my little brother Zanto (who does not speak very good English).  I am not sure how he managed to convince her to marry him if he does not speak English…  Perhaps he has been secretly learning when none of us were looking!  I know that he has been spending a lot of time speaking to Bella and my daughter Kayla through the fence….

So, we are all starting to prepare for the little ones to arrive.  HuMom says they will be here in 4 weeks time, so we are starting to make toys for them and I am going to draw a little picture of a battle so that they know what will be expected of them when they are older…  You know…  Clean teeth, shiny coats and all that.  I’m just a little worried that the puppy stork will not know our new address, but HuMom says that she sent him a letter telling him where we live. 🙂

So, you must hold thumbs that Maya’s puppies will arrive safely.  HuMom says they will all be little Tiglets as they will all have tiger stripes like Maya!  How much fun is that?  It’s soooo cool!

My daughters are great warriors!

Good Morgan everyone!

I am sooo proud of my 2 daughters, Baby (Ch Tanyati Broadway Debut “Brandy”) and Punkin (Tanyati Enchanting “Kayla”).  They went to a battle with HuMom on Saturday and they both had such shiny coats and clean teeth that the human in the middle of the battle ground thought they were the BEST!  Punkin was the Best Junior in Show and Baby was the Best Mover, Best Red and Reserve Best in Show!

HuMom says that they have really good jeans from me.  I looked all over the place, and I cannot find those jeans HuMom is talking about.  Neither Baby nor Punkin are wearing them, and I didn’t even know I had any jeans to start off with.  Sometimes HuMom gets confused…

This is a picture of Baby winning Reserve Best in Show…  I think she is so beautiful.

Do you see my jeans on her?

Emma-grating and leaving heaters turned on…

Good Morgan everyone!

Oh….my….word!  It has been soooo long since I last wrote to everyone!  I have been real busy doing all sorts of things that I just did not have time!

Lots and lots of things have happened since I last managed to sneak into the study and sit at HuMom’s PC to write something.  I can’t even remember everything.  I think I will rather just say that we are all very well here at Tanyati, but we are VERY hot.  “Why?” I can hear you ask…  Well, it’s simple.  We emma-grated.

Emma-grating is when you get in a car and drive for hours and hours and hours and eventually arrive in a VERY hot place that has an empty house and no familiar smells.  That’s what happened to us 2 weeks ago.

Some people came into the house where I was born and took out everything and put it in a VERY big truck.  Then the truck left and HuMom and HuDad and all of us kids at Tanyati slept on the floor for a night.  Then HuMom woke us up ever so early and told us we were going on a road trip and we all bundled into HuMom’s car and HuDad’s car and off we went.  All THIRTEEN of us…  In TWO cars…

We drove and drove and drove and drove.  Then we stopped and I was very happy!  But all that happened is HuMom said it was time for us to go make widdles and then we got back in the car and drove and drove some more.  This happened a few times.  Eventually, at midnight, we arrived at a place and HuMom said we could get out and do a piddle and we did not need to get back in the cars.  We were VERY happy!  This new house was very empty though and for another 2 nights we all slept on the floor.

Two days later, that same big truck arrived at the gate and delivered all of our stuff, even my favourite couch!  We were all very happy that we did not need to sleep on the floor AGAIN.  HuMom spent about a week taking all sorts of things out of all sorts of boxers and making comments like “Oh heavens!  Where will I put this?” and “Oh no! I didn’t realise we brought this!” and “I’m going to have to buy another cupboard for all of this…”.

Now we are all settled in our new house and we love it.  Except that someone forgot to turn the earth’s heater off at the end of winter and it is VERY hot here!  I am sure someone will be getting a very high electricity bill!  We now live in the Western Cape, near a place called Stellenbosch, and it is very beautiful here.  But the BEST part is that HuMom does not have to go out to work every day and she spends the whole day with all of us.  I love my HuMom and I love my HuDad for saying HuMom can stay at home with us!

Letter from Zanto

Good Morgan everyone!

My little brother, who does not speak very good English, wanted to say hello.  So I let him write a letter to you.  He is learning to speak English now (I am teaching him) and I am quite proud of him.  Here is his letter:
