|Left to right: Sipho, Rishi, Leela|
Leela, Rishi and Sipho lead a busy life what with regular hikes on Table Mountain, walks through the golf links near their home, racing and playing on the beach and sunbathing in their own garden.
Cape Town is my top favourite city overseas. This message from Yvonne sums up why:
"I was on the beach with all three dogs and there were over a thousand dolphins swimming in the direction of Table Mountain that filled the bay with fins and somersaults and wave surfing."
Sometimes Southern Right Whales are also spotted; and penguins and seals. Yvonne is actively involved with a seal rescue group.
And here's Rishi running into the sea, Table Mountain in the distance.

|Leela has a natural 'teeka'|
|Evening nap with Jules! Always the same spot.|
|Rishi asking for a tummy-tickle|
|Rishi is the smallest but has to have the biggest bed!|
|'Sipho's chair: everyone knows that!'|
We've been comparing notes on Rishi and his sister, my Kimaya, for the last six years. They have many traits and habits in common, including having mad solo play bursts after dinner! Here's a photo of Kimaya 'meeting' her brother on Skype. I don't know whether dogs can see screen images but she is always interested in Skype and in this conversation she reacted to the barking far away in Cape Town. She also met Yvonne last November and seemed to recognize her voice.
There are many more posts about the Cape Town pack in this blog; search for 'Rishi and Leela,' 'Sipho' and you'll find lots more gorgeous photos.
