This afternoon I went out to Whatawhata which is about 10 minutes maximum drive West from Hamilton to pick up a couple of new girls.
We started with a chilly -3 this morning but look what was on offer by the middle of the day. I love the colours of the countryside, lush paddocks and all.
Does it get any better?
The place I went to was an acre and a half of fabulousness, my kind of sized plot of dirt with stunning views. The man was a man of the cloth as in a Deccan/prison Chaplin and a very nice man indeed. Originally from England, lived in South Africa and then he ended up in little ol' NZ with his family. I wish I had taken photos of his place and his two gorgeous dogs. A Lab cross, with what I don't know, but it seems Labs will get it on with any dog! Then the other one was a HUGE St Bernard, soooooooooooo lovely, and soooooooooo big!!!
So What did I get??
Two Frizzles, and they have serious Wavy Envy going on!!!
My plan was to get them home before TOF got home so he would be non the wiser to the new additions. So far so good, not that he would throw a hissy fit, he is quite used to me just going and getting things!!
Introducing Oprah and Aretha!
The new black chics in the coup.
They seemed to take their new home all in their stride and even handled being checked out the others one by one. These two are not that old but they will be fine, they have each other. Only $10 each.
It was a PURPLE kind of day for me today.
