Happy Maulid!

Today is a public holiday in Tanzania known as Maulid.  It’s a Muslim holiday that celebrates the birthday of the prophet Muhammad.  It also means that mom gets to work from home today and that’s what’s really exciting for me.  I think I’ll be doing a lot of this today:

Celebrating Maulid!

Celebrating Maulid!

You know what else is interesting about this holiday?  You don’t actually know what day it will occur on until the night before.  How fascinating!  So, mom had planned that Thursday would be the holiday because that’s what it said on the internet, but on Wednesday night at 7pm it was announced on the radio and TV that Maulid would actually occur on Friday because of the sighting of the moon.  What an interesting way to determine public holidays!  I mean, how can one plan a vacation or schedule appointments if one doesn’t know when the holiday will be until the night before?

Anyhow, it really doesn’t make a difference to me which day it is since I don’t have a formal job other than protecting mom, which I do every day and never, ever take a holiday from it.  So from a Tanzanian doggie to you, Happy Maulid!

More celebrating!

I Am Thankful For…Twiga

Mom says that this is the time of year where we have to say to everyone the things we’re thankful for.  There’s a ton of super obvious things I could give thanks for, like my mom and nice weather and yummy food, but instead I’ll give thanks for something most dogs never would: a kitty cat.  And I’m not just thankful for any old kitty cat, I’m thankful for Twiga.

My Bro Twiga

Now Twiga, he just gets me.  Even though we’re different species, we have a special way of communicating, which I won’t reveal here because then mom would know all our secrets.  What I will share with you is how Twiga bathes me in the evenings.  This is one of my favorite times of the day, I feel like I’m at the spa!

Twiga gives me my nightly bath

I know y’all might judge me, but you know what?  I don’t care!  I love my little kitty brother and here’s a video that we made together to prove it:

Enjoy!  And Happy Thanksgiving!
