The UnDutchables II

As you know, I seldom feature humans in my blog. However, there is one special couple for whom I will definitely make an exception. I’d like to introduce you to Nelie and Henk. These are the wonderful people who have looked after me whenever my humans have taken a holiday during the past year.

Nelie and Henk (along with Amy, Lobke and yours truly).

Nelie is Amy’s mum. She’s a real dog lover.

And this is Henk. Missus calls him ‘the Dogfather’.

We’ve all become close friends over the past year. Here’s Henk, Dad and Nelie lounging around. As usual, I am trying to get closer to Amy.

Henk, Dad and Amy.

I love it when I go to visit Henk and Nelie. Not only do I get to spend time with Amy, but Henk always takes me for fantastic walks in the Dutch countryside…

…although we sometimes walk in opposite directions.

Here’s a video, directed by Nelie, of Henk, Amy and me on one of our regular walks.

I want to dedicate this blog to Henk and Nelie. Thanks for taking such good care of me and for showing me so much love. Woof!

How wonderful to have loving people to take care of you! I'm sure it puts your humans' minds at ease :)

You are so lucky, Homer, to have such wonderful and loving people to care for you. Our Mom would love to have the confidence to leave us with others but has never found someone she could trust. Our human sisters would do a fantastic job but they have too many little ones now for us to expect that of them.

Hats off to Henk and Nelie - great job.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hey Homer! What a soooper doooper fun walkie you had with your beautiful friend, Amy & her pawrents. They are such nice people. We have that chuck it thingy too. It's so amazing & we love it! One time, Mommy threw the ball using chuck it about 300 meters away. That's really far! She's got strong arms.
