How long does it last....as in time in the fridge, not eating.  :biggrin:
4 weeks easy, but usually klaar before the end of 3 weeks, cause it is lekker, almost want to use it over ice cream.  Make sure the glass jar in which you store it is clean (I ise boiling hot water) then no reason for it to go bad. KEEP REFRIGERATED.

No quarantine for the dogs Zog?

No Chris.

The USA is pretty relaxed about dogs from SA. As long as their rabies shots are up to date, all good.

I went to the County Sherriff's department of Animal Control yesterday with all their documents and got them each their Dog Licenses. $10 each, valid for a year.  :thumleft:

SO now they will get to wear a green Sherriff's Star on their collars, with a serial number  :biggrin:  8)
well you have just gained a bigger respect from me for taking your dogs with you, instead of just dropping them off at a shelter !!

Today...

There is only one dog-friendly beach in the whole of the Brevard County where we live. Residents fought long and hard to get it, so strict rules are enforced. Like dogs must be on a leash, and you have to pick up after them. No problem.

Right...

They haven't met our two... well, actually, just our Sammy (the brown-job).  :xxbah:

I went first and dropped off my resume (American for CV) at two different places this morning. I prefer to drop off in person, just so that they can SEE who the dude is applying for the job. First impressions, and all that...

So then we load up the dogglies (feel like calling HIM something much less flattering right now), and off we go. Its not a short drive either. Around 20 - 25 MILES. Yip, the lengths we go to for our animals... We get there, eventually. Park the car. Get the dogs out, on their leashes. Walk over to the hotdog stand (just like the ones on TV  ;D ) and order a couple of dogs. We sit and eat at a wooden bench, sharing our treat with the children. Then its off to the BEACH!!!!

From the parking area its a short walk over a boardwalk to the sea. Then kick off the flip-flops (nobody steals your flip-flops here) and leave them at the end of the boardwalk. Head out onto the sand with the kids. Lots of other dogglies enjoying the beautiful hot sunshine with their owners. All nicely on their leashes.

I have the big boy brown-job. He's a bit more of a handful when her gets excited. Liefie has Maggie, the little Jack Russel. We walk into the ocean, just ankle deep, the waves are small, just tiny little shore-breaks. Perfect for the first ever experience of the ocean for our two. Maggie is brilliant, her stubbly little legs propelling her ever deeper, she's jumping into the waves, getting soaked, swimming, having an absolute BALL!

Sam, on the other hand, is a little more wary. He holds back, because this may be a bath, in disguise... eish!  Then he sees Maggie in over her head! He takes another two steps in, with me coaxing him eagerly. A wave comes over, just an inch higher than the last one. Sam freaks out. The water has reached his knees!!!! AAARRRGGHHH!!!!!!

He twists his head, and somehow he is out of his choke-chain...

FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!

Little fucker heads back up the beach at high speed, past all the other bathers and their dogs. Mummies see this fucking great KILLER DOG approaching at breakneck speed and scoop up their precious little chihuahua's and other assorted skoot-kakkertjies. Children are grabbed and held high. General pandemonium breaks out, with me in high persuit shouting all the time for my fucking-expensive jet-setting brak to stop, and return. Nah. Fuckall. He's outta here. Gone...

He makes a left at the boardwalk, he needs to get as far away from this water that hit him in the knee as possible. He cruises across the car park and is heading for the A1A, the MAIN DRAG along the beach. Its moerofa busy with cars doing 45 Miles per hour... Shit. I can't run any faster, and he's opening the gap on me.

Just at the end of the parking lot, as the escapee gets there, a cop car pulls in.  :eek7: Florida Sherrif's Department. Fuck. Fuck.

The cop sees this brown job heading his way, and he hits his horn/siren/loud thing. Sam almost shits himself in mid-stride. Instant about-turn, and he's running from the law. Back towards daddy. Daddy stops running, stands and shows Sam the signal for "hier". Sam comes back to dad, dad puts the chain back on Sam's neck. Sorted.

Except for the cop...  FUCK.

Dude gets out, puts on that fancy hat (you know, the one like in Smokey and the Bandit) and dude walks on over with all his shiny badges and a BIG gun. Stops where daddy is trying, most unsuccessfully, to just breathe after his sprint along the beach, over the boardwalk, through the car-park, and almost to the main road.

"You got him secured now, Sir" Mr Policeman asks me.

"Yes Sir, thank you"  I stammer, waiting for the uitkak and citation, and maybe even an arrest and night in the tjoekie. I mean, there are severely traumatised chihuahua's and other assorted stoepkakkertjies back there on the beach. Someone HAS to pay!

"Good. He's a beautiful dog." is all he replies before he walks off to go and harass some deadbeats at the end of the parking lot. Just some surfer dude's parking off, probably smokinbg some doobie on the quiet...

Whew...

Liefie joins me, Maggie in tow. We decide that its enough. Back to the car, we'll not take Doofus Sam out again without a full-body-harness to make sure he stays safely attached to Daddy.

On the way home both dogs are fast asleep on the back seat... worn out!  ::)

Daddy is now recovering from his impromptu exercise session with a couple of vodka's.  :lol8:

:imaposer: What a story - Another classic!

But now I'm curious, what do you think would have happened had the cop not arrived? Do you think Big brown job got freaked out by the sea or did he decide maybe this America thing was kak and he was not going to run all the way back to Pretoria?

BTW how are you finding adjusting to posting on WD's at 2 in the morning? ;D

I shudder to think what may have happened had the cop not scared brown fucktard back towards me  :eek7:


The A1A was hellofa busy with Friday arvie traffic at 45MPH.

I think brown-job just git a skrik for the water and baled. He does that sometimes... one day he got all upset with a milk-carton. another day it was a ladies handbag... one evening he decided that the ceiling fan in the lounge was evil... the list continues... Sammy isn't too bright. But he's sexy and handsome and sweet. So we forgive him  :3some:  ;D

And if I get my calculations correct, its now after 3am. For the guys in SA.  ::)

Its a lot quieter. Less ou's chirping. Sometimes I miss the chirps, but I also think that as time progresses I may get time for a quick visit in the mornings (my time) and chirp some of the "old faithfuls" again  :pot: :ricky:

Give it some time Gary, Mr Brown will get use to the sea and will then have an absolute ball. I speak of experience.  

We have a Labbie that absolutely hated water, this dog would run away from his own water bowl in Pretoria.
When we moved we took him to the beach and he also kakked himself. Slowly but surely he eased up and now is like a fish in the water. Die huisdiertjie and I walk on the beach and Troy swims and swims.

We take him out there every day. It does help that my house is a mere 400 meters from the beach.
