We live in a lovely little village outside Durban, which has very much a country feel though it is close to the city. We love our place and have chickens for our own fresh eggs, a cat we found as a tiny kitten in the cane fields, two big boerboels, which are 7 and 9 years old as well as our little baby dog, Pipsqueak. She is three years old, a year younger than the cat and George was always her closest friend. They have completely silent games as -after all cats don't bark- and are chilling together when it is time to peace out. Pippy, as she is called, never lost her puppy looks and sleeps in my daughters beds, swapping over every other night.
