What a handsome pooch! Is he yours?
Louis: Not mine, just someone we visited.

C'est ton chien ?
Louis: Ce n'est pas mon chien, Martine. Il appartient à un ami.
he's a great and powerful looking dog Louis... i'm sure that he could pull down a bull if he had been trained to do it....petersmile
Louis: Built for the hunt, like all the terrier types. The staffie is a powerful dog, belying its size.

Fine-looking mutt, with grin and front-end musculature just like our Toby.
Louis: The staffie is a chunky version of a pitbull, I guess. All muscle, but a good personality and an excellent companion in the veld.
Pure, unadulterated joy and happiness. I wish it for us all, Louis.
Louis: A good wish, in general, Ginnie. Lovely dog
He terrifies me Louis.
Louis: Maybe you have heard or read about Jock of the Bushveld - a book by Sir James Percy FitzPatrick on his early experiences in South Africa. This is the type of dog, he had for a companion.

A well exercised one from the look of it
Louis: Was play-fighting with another one, looking just like this. They are a very energetic breed.

I admire you having been so close to this beast!
Louis: Sweet little doggy, Philine.

Is he a guard dog, Louis?
Louis: More of a hunter, than a guard dog. However, it will look after the property where he lives.

What's not to like about this guy... WOOF
Louis: blackdogs are just magic, eh?
Hello, Pooch!

Our weekend is yet a mystery. Currently it is -14 and the island is closed with a severe storm underway. It raged and shook the house all night. Sunday the temperature will be +12. So Saturday will be spent shoveling out all the snow from today's storm and then perhaps flooding on Sunday.
Louis: Good grief, varying 26 degrees in three days! What an experience! That could indeed be a closed book, for now, indeed.
Not a favoured breed in the UK any longer - too many of them bred and used for fighting, which is, of course, illegal.
Louis: Here, they are seen as good house or farm dogs. Good for hunting and for watching the property, but also good friends to their owners and a stable character. I know that once they land in a fight, they don't give up - probably why they ended up in the fighting fraternity - which we don't have.

What a great portrait and I think the dog is well behaved and 'waiting' for what comes next.....
Louis: Taking a breather, yes - and well mannered. You 'see' the dog well, Astrid.
Good-looking dog...
Louis: Fit and a good companion.
