First the Chilean mineworkers...
and now the Pipster!
Journalist and neighbour Ron always leaves his tubby and ancient little mutt Pipi with me when he goes off on a shoot, this time in Ghana. She's the light of his life.
On Wednesday evening, she disappeared without trace. I searched the village, put up posters, and notified the gendarmerie.
This morning my marvelous beast Thabo started barking at 5am and wouldn't stop. I finally went down to investigate the commotion and heard high pitched barking from a neighbouring field. At the bottom of a shallow well, shivering in the dark was one terrifed and very smelly little Pipster.
Hallelujah may the Lord be Praised!
