Friday’s Foto Fun – Chillin’ With Thomas

chill ThomasMeet my new friend Thomas. He’s a standard wire-haired Dachshund and he lives in Holland, where my peep’s great grandparents were from. (In fact, Her great grandmother didn’t speak a word of English.)

I wonder if Thomas speaks English? Of course he speaks Dutch. As you can see.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world.

    Thank you for making me photo-fun of today. And of course, I bark a little English, as I am a dog of the world! I like to sleep, indeed Stuart, and I like to bark and to walk. Not with wooden shoes on, they are much too heavy! Yes, I think you are quite handsome too, Stuart. How nice that the great-greatparents of your peep were Dutch. Where from in Holland? I live in the center, were it is foresty. And wet, yes, that too. I say: Tot ziens en we spreken elkaar! Prettig weekeinde!

      OMD mom had to double check whose blog we were on ‘cos Afrikaans (one of South Africa’s 11 official languages) is derived from Dutch!! So knowing Afrikaans we can generally pick up what is being said! So to Thomas: mooi om jou te ontmoet (nice to meet you) and to you Stu: jy is te oulik! (you are too sweet / cute)

      Lekker naweek / have good weekend

        Nice, to read your comment. My brother, the biped of 11, is at this moment writing a paper about South-Africa. His dad studied Dutch and Afrikaans in Amsterdam! Lekker naweek too!

        • robynwp says:

          Wow that is so cool! Our mom’s uncle (by marriage) is Dutch…his family moved her in the late 50’s. They all still speak Dutch. And our mom did course on Dutch & Afrikaans at university too.

          Tell your brother good luck with his assignment

          Lekker dag

    • Hey Thomas! Nice of you to bark at me! (I’m gonna learn Dutch!)

      My great great grandparents’ families, of the two-legged variety, were from Tietjerksteradeel, Garjp, Leeuwarden, Twijzel, Opeinde, Rinsumageest, and Ferwerderadel.

      Do you know these places?

      Tot ziens! ArOOOOO, Stuart

      • Thomas says:

        Yep, that’s Friesland, in the north of The Netherlands. The Frysians are proud people with their own language, and for a long time they wanted to be independent. Not anymore, I think. In 756, they killed Boniface, a missionary who came to christen them!
        Bye, Stuart, my wee laoch!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
