Beezus is the new explorer and follows in the footsteps of Akela and Kenya who explored South Africa with me for nearly 15 years. The full story of how he came into my life is at Lessons for a Lapdog. I left him in September 2012 and he rejoined me shortly before Christmas 2013 when his mom asked if I would take him. How could I refuse? He was raised by Akela for the first year of his life!
His first six weeks back with me were in Johannesburg where he blossomed on walks along the Sandspruit River, socialising with far larger dogs. But it was on his first big adventure — a trip to the Cape — that he really grew up.
The masthead photo and the one below (by Tania Thomson Poole) show him frolicking in the surf at Cape Agulhas, the southermost tip of the African continent where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet.
Come back to read the stories about his trip to the Cape and the adventures that will still happen.
