Guess what's for dinner?

After the excitement of finding the diamond fields, Mango, Dexter, Lacie and I decided to take a walk around Max's neighborhood and see what else we might discover.

We came across this charming local village. Naturally, Lacie was thrilled at the possibility of a South African shopping mall...

Practically before we finished introducing ourselves, the villagers insisted that we stay for dinner. They promised something fresh and delicious!

Oh no! They had a Canineibal Cookbook! And the main entree was for Relentlessly Huge Stuffed Mango!!!!

Thank dog, they didn't have a stew pot big enough for our intrepid friend and his Relentlessly Huge bulk splashed water out of the pot, extinguishing the fire.

Dexter wasn't quite so lucky. His chef was an expert at shrinking heads! Unfortunately, Dexter leapt into the broth and his head — and everything else — shrank!!! He truly was Pee Wee!!!
Luckily, with his expert swimming skills, he swam circles around the soup pot...

...and scrambled to safety! (After a quick dip in Max's swimming pool, he was back to his normal size. However, we continued to call him Pee Wee!)

As for me, well, I was the main ingredient for "Cairn Terrier Saute with Tennis Ball Garni!" I thought I was a goner until I heard a familiar "ARRROOOOO!!!!" shattering the jungle silence. As hundreds of birds took to the skies, the villagers ran away in fear — this echoing cry was far more frightening than an angry lion's mighty roar!

It was my Rosie Posie to my rescue!!! She was none too pleased to be left alone in Scotland whilst I went off to South Africa...particularly when she heard that Lacie was coming along, so she cancelled the remainder of her pageant tour to find me. And not a minute too soon!

Speaking of Lacie, the villagers decided she was too tough and stringy to make much of a meal. However, fascinated by Dexter's shrinking potion, she sat right down in the pot, hoping it might instantly reduce her sizable posterior...

Well... it kinda worked!

Petey, we are both so worried about you all!
We cannot bear to think of anyone eating any of you!
And poor Dexter - we do hope he has returned to normal.
Thank dogness you were rescued from the cooking pot - you did look quite cute right enough with your wee tennis ball instead of an apple!
You really do have to be careful. Make sure you stay with Max - he knows South Africa and will keep you all safe.

Oh dear -- we were just reading about a certain country that shall be nameless to protect the guilty which is trying to persuade its citizens not to have dog stew on the menu -- and here you guys fell into the pot, so to speak.

Our first comment to R.H. Mango was that South Africa looked a lot like South Florida -- but we amend our comments. This is Flori-duh for sure -- and we have seven-foot Burmese pythons that will squeeze you to death -- but so far no soup pots on every corner.

Ewww! All that dog stew made our stomachs turn and our noses wrinkle. No way! That didn't really happen, did it? You're just teasing, right?

What I do believe is Rosie's flushing the birds out of the jungle with her dramatic arrival. (Thank Dog!) It reminded me of Jake flushing the birds out of the bush this morning when he went to do his morning pee. Dozens of them flew out. I wonder if they were the same ones that came and took cover here?

It sounds like you are having a great time, even if a bit steamy. Just be careful. And keep us posted. We're loving it from our sunny safe deck.

I wish you would all be a little more cautious when you are in a foreign land. I don't want to lose any of my friends. I am glad you are all safe right now. Do be careful please.

licks and sniffs, Sasha
