The Happiest Schnauzer in Africa

A few things about me.

I live on a farm in Africa on the banks of the Zambezi River. I love going for rides in the boat. But Mum says she’s worried I might jump overboard (I also love water), so she doesn’t take me with her any more when they go on the river. I hate that.

Sometimes elephants come from the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park next door to try to eat Dad’s crops. I like to bark at them and I love rolling in the huge piles of poo they leave on the road. (If Mum’s not looking I also eat it, but that’s our secret …)

I have three very annoying sisters and a silly brother who makes me jealous. I don’t like to share.

No, he's not cuter than me.

I also have my own cat. How cool is that? We are best friends now even though she didn’t like me when we first met, and we always cuddle together on cold winter evenings.

Such dreadful language! How uncouth.
