Deja vu …

I just discovered that only half of my last post got published the other day (gotta love the internet connections here). So … here is the complete post … video included! Enjoy!

Because we are slightly preoccupied with our new puppy, and because we know that there is nothing else that you could possibly be interested in hearing about, we will oblige and update you on our ‘crazy one’.

Here are some Loca stats:

  • Snakes stepped on: 1
  • Scorpions played with: 1
  • Crabs caught on the beach: 57
  • Cow shits rolled in: 12
  • Dog shits rolled in: 3
  • Llama shits rolled in: 1
  • Raw or rotten fish rolled in: 9
  • Pukes in the truck: 5
  • Baths: 17 million 5 hundred thousand and 27.
  • Beaten up by other dogs: 8
  • Infections with fleas: 1
  • Infections with worms: 1
  • Swims in the ocean: 17 billion
  • Lost in the desert 1.5 hours from the truck: 1
  • Found the truck in the desert: 1 (she wasn’t lost after all … just wanted to go home!)
  • Countries visited so far: 2
  • Boat trips: 6
  • Kilometres travelled: thousands

Lest you think that she is nothing but a poo-rolling, puking, snake-stepping fleabag, we would like to add the following:

  • She loves the truck alot now and will jump in on her own (the puking stage was brief).
  • She can sit, lie down, stay, come, heel and jump.
  • She knows two languages … well, sort of!
  • She loves to be brushed.
  • She is very intelligent, and is exceptionally good at travelling. She understands that her home moves every day, and she is very adaptable.
  • She loves to cuddle in the morning.
  • She loves to camp, and just to prove how intelligent she is, we offer the following camping dog video:

Heeey Robin and Reanelle, great website!!! (especially asthonished by the possibility for Dutch, thought you couldn´t speak dutch so well, Reanelle!). Was a fun time the other day, hope you made it to the powerplant the next day, we just made the train and jumped into our bed again in Cusco! Shame we did not take a picture together, I even had a joke planned for that: I Wayna take a Picchu! We´re off to Taquile Island on Lake Titicaca tomorrow to spend the night with locals in return for some food, how´s that for budget travelling!!

We´ll keep up with your site, bye for now and say hello to Loca for us!

Lip (Maarten) and Marleen

Now, if she had climbed down the ladder I could have said ‘ now that’s a clever dog ‘ !!!!

Looks like a pretty barren environment you were in there 🙁
