I Know You Guys Were Wondering....

TAH-DAH! The BABIES! Damn they are seriously cute! I've been feeding them poor Poods' food because he is trapped in the States until the Sudanese lift the ban on incoming pets to prevent the spread of swine flu.



Isn't swine flu like soooo April 2009?? That's like protecting yourself against Michael Jackson.... we've moved on!

Anyway, Anna Maria and I bitched and threw hissy fits until the RSO let us bring the babies INTO the compound because the Sudanese were shooting strays in their quest to kill off swine - I mean, you gotta do something if your country is pigless....you can't just not kill shit...I mean COME ON!



So here they are....This is Mommy she is totally snuggly...and a little bit flea-ey....(but I have some stuff on order for that!)




And this is Riley - he waits at the back door for me to give him food and water. Even though the guards (allegedly) feed them - he acts all staving and needy. I'm like my own little USAID office for babies!


But look at his little face?! How could you NOT give him the left over lamb? You have to! Little Marley is behind him and ReRun is to the left. (ReRun is not quite right in the head, but still adorable!)








That's Pippy and Marley. Pippy's a little bit of a bitch - she lays in the middle of the food and growls at everyone so she can eat it all. I kinda have to back that kinda piggery...Plus when you see the next picture, you're all AWWEEE! you can have whatever you want!





Do you see?! They are totally doot doot!


Now I do realize that come August we will likely have a pack of wild dingos running around our housing compound and that it is probably not good that the dogs are already sleeping on the pool chairs all stretched out -- but for now - they are ADORABLE!


What could possibly go wrong?

Aren't they adorable? Everything should be fina as long as Michel doesn't tempt fate and ask "What could possibly...." Oops.

blognut said...

They're ALL so sweet!

And I'm all for Pippy getting whatever she wants, too. That's how it should be. She IS the one who is smart enough to stake out her claim, you can't fault her for that!

Reunited! And I can see it feels so good.

The local people probably see all the dogs running around and think,"Wow those Americans are raising their own food"! LOL!

Fragrant Liar said...

Aw, poor Sudanese puppies. They aren't taken care of like they are in the States, right? You are doing a good deed. They really are adorable, so how could you not?

But I do agree that your newbie needs to be in charge of the doggy poo goo. Gotta earn your way to the top like you, right?

Heidi said...

OOOOH they are soooo cute, so far! Thanks for cracking me up.

Gaston Studio said...

Knew you'd get them inside somehow, some way, so good on you! Never doubted you and they do have sweet faces.

Comedy Goddess said...

They sure are cute, and seem like alot of them all at once.

Suzy said...

Pippy must be the Alpha. My 5 pound Yorkie was an Alpha and nobody ate until he was finished!
If they have sand fleas, those are hard to get rid of unless they dont go near the sand.

Anyway, very funny about your trip and your husband,,

Susan said...

I'll know how much you love them when you share your REAL cake, (not that Sudanese fake shit).

tera said...

Puppies! I wanna come play with the puppies!
Oh, wait. Dust. Heat. Questionable showers. No cake....


Puppies! They are so cute! I will look at them from here!

tera said...

p.s. What the heck is "doot doot?"

Beth said...

This totally makes me want to send you some dog treats for the babies. They are so freakin adorable. Who cares if the dingos take over?
