Farley Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Every day when mom and I are on our walk, I try to pull her down the road where Farley lives since I haven’t seen him in such a long time.

Heading towards Farley…

But every day, mom pulls me past the road and doesn’t allow me to see him.  Now, I know why she has been doing that.  Mom has been keeping a horrible secret from me: Farley doesn’t live here anymore!

The last time I ever saw Farley

The first time I met Farley










It’s like that scene in the last episode of the last season of Sex and the City (Don’t laugh, of course I know my Sex and the City quotes, you realize who my mom is, right?)  You know the scene, the one where Big comes looking for Carrie and she says, “And you can drive up this street all you want…because I don’t live here anymore!”   And now, this has just happened to me. It’s heartbreaking, really!

I don’t live here anymore!

You tell ’em Carrie!












So now I’m at a loss, my first canine friend has left, without so much as a goodbye 😦  I mean what’s next?  Mom’s gonna tell me that Santa and reindeer don’t exist either??

And so does Santa!

Reindeer DO exist!

Goodbye Mr. Marcel

In the past few weeks, several of my good friends have left, but I’m most upset about the fact that Mr. Marcel is leaving Mwanza.  Apparently, he got a fancy new job and has to move to Moshi, which is another town in Tanzania.  On a side note, I don’t like this “job” thing that humans do.  My mom has to leave me every day because of her “job” and now Mr. Marcel is leaving me forever because of his “job”.  Moshi is very far from Mwanza and this means I won’t get to see Mr. Marcel on a regular basis.  If dogs could cry, I probably would.

Because Mr. Marcel is leaving, he decided to have a going away party.  And because Mr. Marcel is so classy, he had an extra fancy party, with caterers and drink servers.  I wore my party t-shirt and matched Mr. Marcel for the occasion.

We match!

Rocking my Party T












Mr. Marcel has a ton of friends in Mwanza and so lots and lots of people showed up to say goodbye.  This included Aunt Amanda and Miss Courtney, my favorite girls in Mwanza.

We’ll miss you Mr. Marcel!

Mr. Marcel’s house is very dog-friendly for me and Farley because he has a lounge with mattresses and pillows on the floor instead of big stuffy couches.  He also has fancy sheets made of Thai silk (which he clearly did NOT buy in Mwanza) that I love to roll around on.  A dog could get used to the finer things in life!  Perhaps if I sprawl out on Mr. Marcel’s Thai silk sheets, then he won’t be able to leave!

P.S. Can you tell that “fancy” is my new favorite vocabulary word?  I really am my mother’s son 🙂

Mmmmmm, Thai silk, I like!

Speaking of dog-friendly, I’m really gonna miss Mr. Marcel’s awesome yard.  I’ve had so many good times there with Farley, at doggie daycare and playing in the pool.  OH MY GOD, do you think that Mr. Marcel is going to take Farley with him to Moshi??!!!  I don’t know what to do without my best friend…
