Both dogs were really excited about meeting new people. There was lots of racing around the garden and kicking up of mud!
After playing with the dogs for a while we went for a walk to one of Shalini's favourite routes. It's a path beside a canal; a picturesque lane bordered with bushes and trees, where Nicole has spotted interesting local wildlife including a Bengal Monitor.
Then back to the house for a truly delicious lunch and a play session with Rakhi the kitten; after which the dogs finally sat still for a bit so I could take some photos!

Both dogs are impressive diggers. You can see their work all over the garden. Here they are working on a new project!
We couldn't even see the bottom of this hole. Didn't I say they're impressive?
Nicole and Vinod, thanks for a lovely afternoon. And Shalini and Somu, it was great to finally meet you!
