This is not a sprint but a marathon...
So we leave the golden kitties and are on our merry way to Skuks via the H1-1
. I stop at klipspringerkoppie just to see my favorite rockjumpertjie so far and hidden that no kiekie can be taken. Sometimes they can be so spiteful if they want to be hey? I went a bit to the front- then reversed a bit-then to the front again but to no avail, that jumpertjie was snickering behind the bush because of our predicament.
The rest of the road was very quiet until we were about 4km from Skukuza and we see a small roadblock. Well we slow down even more and keep our eyes open just to see this in the grass...
You must be joking!!!! Really doggies sommer so in the morning
What a great day this is being for us. Now bare with me this is the doggie episode so there will only be doggy kiekies...
They were lying in the grass, not like my previous doggie sighting in March when they were right next to me in the road so I got a lekker spot, switched the ignition off and sat ready with the cam in my hand.
Some of them were just lying and every now and then you would see an ear flicker but otherwise nothing. Then some of the others would sit, lie and then walk around and then repeat this the whole time. I think they were 24 doggies in total.
Here is one with a collar-mummy dog
Now in a bush you would hear yelping the whole time and these juvies/pups came out
She stood up and joined them in the bush and I sweat some of them still drank from her
Then other ones came from the bush that looked like adults
This one pup was very playful and kept us entertained for a while, playing with everything that he set his eyes one
We sat with them for an hour and half. My mum started fiddling around because I didn't want to leave them. It was almost 12 and we still had to drive all the way to croc bridge. i just kept making excuses like just another cigarette...wait what are they going to do now...ag mom I want them to come to the road... But she said because a tortoise would overtake me anytime I had to move one otherwise we will have to sleep over at LS. And then with a heavy heart I had to leave my doggies.
Oh and by the way she believes that she found me a husband there in that small traffic jam we were.
At least she didn't ask numbers on anything otherwise I would've been moving in next to the doggies to be eaten...
