This is my official "Championship Portrait" - gorgeous isn't it?

Sorry, I am not available to be purchased or to be bred (well, eventually hopefully I will have pups, but right now I am too busy doing other stuff). Please do not harass my mum with inquiries - else she may just take my picture off again and I would hate that to happen ... I know, it's terribly hard to resist me, you'll just have to be strong

Sending kisses

A walk in Afrika

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Saturday, December 27, 2008, In : Lollie - 2008 

Lollie being attacked by a Plover


Can you believe it? - 2 posts in 1 day? Mum says she is tearing her hair out over this video stuff ... well, whatever her excuse, it suits me just fine.

What we are going to show you now is my most favourite  thing in the whole world. It is where mum takes us to walk when we are good dogs, or when she feels like running, 'cause she does some fitness training there. I wished she would do that more often, it would help with her Agility AND give us more walks.

Learning abstract concepts

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Saturday, December 27, 2008, In : Lollie - 2008 
Hi everyone

I hope you all had a great holiday, wherever in the world you may be.
WOW, where we busy around here. Mum was running around like she had lost a whole flock of sheep - up and down and in and out and even dad was hectic. However, we had such nice food and mum is spending some extra time with us, so I suppose it is all "good" hectic.

Today mum wants to show you all how very smart I am ... really, I am not sure what the big deal is. First I know that I am smart anyway, by now I think yo...

My first freestyle routine

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Thursday, December 18, 2008,

Hi again

I can't tell you how much there is to talk about. I have tons of news for you. I think I will spread it over several blogs though, in order to keep it easier to follow.

Well, here it FINALLY is. My first freestyle routine. Personally I think it is Championship material, but both my human and my real mum just chuckle at that. Well, I think I was brilliant.
But let me first tell you about our fantastic Christmas party. Mum and her friends from the Dancing Dog's committee organised a part...

Centre fold

Centre page from "All About Dogs in Southern Africa", Nov/Dec 2008

I promised you our centrefold spread .... and here it is. No, it wasn't mum who was that quick, of course it wasn't her. She delegated to dad ...

The names we edited in so you could identify us easier. The fluffy dog on the top right is Benji BTW. I have spoken about him in my blog. He is cool and will be our big competition in the coming year.

Mum says I must come along now, we need to practise our freestyle routine for the C...

Chippy's first job

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Saturday, December 13, 2008,

Chippy (left) and Lollie (right) during early freestyle practice

Hi again

No, no, don't worry, we haven't got any new additions to our household. Mum says that is the only "freestyle picture" she can find of Chippy or me right now. How shocking is that? That picture is 2 years old! And nobody has taken pictures of us since then?  Well, if you ask me, it is a disgrace ....

Anyway, I promised you another blog, and I really would like to know how you feel about this, because me personally, well I c...

Weekend 6/7 December 2008

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Monday, December 8, 2008,

Hi there

well, well, well, it is hard to believe, but mum actually managed the picture upload from her cell phone.
So, here is the promised family picture and 2/3 of the total South African Pyrenean population.
Let me introduce you to: (from right to left) my brother Chippy, myself, Lollie, our mum Quincy, our dad Zen and the little human is Zen's young mum Caren (Zen has 2 human mums! Boy must that be exhausting, trying to keep an eye on everyone!).

And how was the weekend you ask? .... My mum ...

Last week of November 2008

Posted by Gaby Grohovaz on Tuesday, December 2, 2008,
Hi again

This week has been so busy, busy, busy.
There were no shows on the weekend, so mum had lots of time to just take us for long walks around the dam where we can all run and also to play with us. Like this morning, where she invented a new game ... I haven't yet caught on to it, but if we play it a few more times I am sure I will. We were doing Agility mum was trying to race me to the next jump - suddenly she went flat on her tummy and was sliding forward on the wet grass. It looked ever ...

Star Struck

I don't really like to brag about other people, but today is an exception. You probably know by now what a famous mum I have - I mean my *real* mum Quincy. She is a movie star and *everyone* knows her. It is a bit of a pain going out with her, since people stop and want to chat to my human mum about Quincy all the time. It's "oh" and "ah" and all these silly cooing noises humans make ... I don't really mind the noises, but couldn't they make them to *ME*? So yes, going out with Quincy is not one of my favorite past times. However, today I am really proud of her. She did another TV commercial recently, and it has just been voted: "The hottest ad of the week on Cape Talk’s Adfeature show" and Quincy is the star of the ad - she doesn't just have a little role - she really is the star!

Just in case you don't know Cape Talk is a big deal radio station here in South Africa - I mean really *BIG DEAL* (well, you don't expect us to get excited about a mention on a *little* radio station do you?).

So we are all celebrating. Us dogs got a super-duper bone each and mum is having a glass of bubbly (have you ever put your nose into a glass of that stuff? - Yikes - I would suggest you don't even try! It is awful. I can not understand what mum does with it).

I have stuck the important piece of the podcast here for you to listen to ... Oh yes, we even had a podcast of the announcement, I *told* you it was a big deal.

We are off to another show tomorrow, can't wait, it has been a bit boring here lately.

Great weekend to all

Love you


What a Weekend ...

We had such a great weekend - well *I* had. Mum is now exhausted, and Chippy, well Chippy didn't do so well, but we knew that all along that I would be the star of this family.

We went to an Agility competition on Friday - mum says it was just a *small* competition, but hey, everything counts - right?

I just blew everyone away - 1-2-3 just like that, I won all 3 of the competitions mum and I entered. Mum says she is very pleased with me. I think she actually did a pretty good job herself this time round (no funny manouvers that we collided). Especially the Dog Jumping (remember, that is the one where you need to go clear in the first round and then you go to the Jump-Off). I beat Ricki by 1,5 seconds! Mum says Ricki is the best "non-large" dog in South Africa at the moment ... I beg your pardon? WHO is the Best if I just beat him????

Mum says we still need to work on our weave poles, but I have no idea what she is complaining about. 

Chips, well he had a few steering problems and was a bit off ... I think maybe I will have a chat to him.

Allez also did quite well and won one class and was second in the other.


And then on Saturday we went to do a Freestyle demo - yes me too :-). Oh, I was sooooo cool on my saddle - of course the silly kids wanted to know where the horse was ... they have no imagination - non ...

Everyone thought Chippy in his pram was great ... I think the saddle is better, but I suppose the pram is also cute. Mum and Allez practised their new routine and Allez did really well - wow, I want to be like her one day.

And today, well today mum said the weather was miserable (hey, it was great, all overcast with a bit of rain, not too hot, I love this weather, but humans always complain about the weather have you noticed that?). Anyway, mum thought it was "stay at home" weather. There wasn't much to do - supervise all the dogs a bit, check the property with dad, but it was really a little boring. Just nice that everyone was together I suppose.

We are going to have a really busy month coming up. I will try and keep updating you as often as I can.


Love you XXXX



 Hi - May I introduce myself?

My name is "Funny Waldi"

About Me

Lollie Hi I am Lollie, a grey Pyrenean Sheepdog. I was born on 31. August 2006. I live with my brother, our mum and another 5 dogs on a farm in Africa. Our "human mum" believes we all need a job, and I fully agree. I am always busy bossing everyone around - I don't think "Mum" has that in mind when she talks about a "job" though. Her idea of a job is to play Agility, which I like, but she is terribly slow, and I have to keep reminding her to run faster. I bark and bark and bark, and sometimes she gets the message - it is very hard to train humans .... She also likes to dance with me - she calls it freestyle, but what do you call it when you move to music? I call it "dancing". Anyway, let her call it what she likes. We also need to do Obedience stuff. I love the heelwork part, but then she keeps throwing things away which she expects me to fetch for her - who does she think I am? Anyway, Chippy (that is my brother) brings everything back, so let him fetch it. Well, everyday life is busy when you live on a farm. In the mornings Chippy and I go out with our human dad ... sigh ... that is another case of "difficult training object". He is soooo slow. I have actually given up trying to make him run at all. Usually I just check that everything is in order and then I go back to the house again, it is just too boring standing around with dad. Later on Wedwo, that is mum's horse, comes down to the paddock - yep, he definitely needs to be exercised and told where to go and graze. The cheeky thing is starting to ignore me now, so I have to hang from his tail ... Mum says she will try to get a picture (don't get me started on pictures though ....) well, that is all about me right now. If you are interested in following my daily blog ... oops mum says it won't be daily ... :-( come back and visit. Yours Lollie
