So we stopped at the cafe today and while we were there one of our mates asked whether we wanted a dog – we said we had been thinking about it, but yes, we would like to get one.
So before we knew it, we were on our way up to a farm where the chap had three mastin puppies – well now he only has two, and we brought one home with us – total cost – 2 beers!
And here she is – totally in love with her already:
She’s only 3 months old – mastins grow to be enormous, but she’ll protect us and the finca with her life – they’re fiercely loyal.
So this answers our question I posed last year about whether to have animals or not – and we’ve started building the chicken coop too!
