Hello April…

Autumn seems to be seeping in very slowly… very cool mornings lead into very warm days.  Walking the side walk yesterday with the pups was certainly puff stuff (well ok, for some of us…) with the sun beating down it felt more like high summer!
  It was with hugely heavy hearts that we bid goodbye to Dozer, a   very special member of the Wyndford family.  Walk was the first word he learnt and he was happiest out on the mountain with guests…especially the ones who let him lead… the walk tended to be longer than they thought. The next thing he learnt was to use his beautiful big chocolate eyes to full advantage, especially at tea time!  He surprised us always with being able to tell a new guest checking in and was quick to meet them at the car, but seemed to know if you were already resident. Absolutely patient with small people, who frequently sat with him for cuddles on the steps outside the dining room. Ah… so many wonderful memories. Thank you Dozy… RIP. 

On his last day, a short amble round the lodges was all he could make, suddenly Sprocket walked slowly right alongside him, ears to tail touching for a few minutes – it seemed like the baton was being passed on.
Meanwhile our new lambs, Alice, Sparky, new twins Duke and Dash are doing well, as are Ebony and Ivory (well – they are black and white like piano keys…) our latest piglets!
We have some fun times planned for all ages this year.  Visit our activities page on the website www.wyndford.co.za  for more information but a sneak heads-up….. tennis weekend, spider and butterflies, scout treats, bowls week as well as all the usual fun and relaxing at Wyndford. Alternatively, you could treat the Mom’s in your lives to a special break, delicious meals with no cooking, lots of relaxing, fresh air… peace and quiet!  Go on just do it! Call the girls in the office – 058-2230274!
