How do you say woof in Spanish ?

Mum found me this nice Scottish jacket; I like it because it reminds me of my ancestors' country, but I also love my country Australia. Mum and Dad love aboriginal art like the one in the background.

What I love about having my photo taken is the treats I get at the end (and something in the middle too !)

Remember my pajama party ? Well one guest got stuck because of a 'Spam filter'; I'm not sure what that is, I thought Spam came in cans and was quite yummy. I'm not a technology expert but I really love the fact that it allows me to share my adventures and my happiness with all my friends. So here is Peggy, isn't she lovely ? I'm happy that you made it, better late than never.

Go and visit her blog, it's great. It's in Spanish so click on the Translate button; her Mum is very talented, she makes outfits from baby clothes, like my Mum. I also have French friends who live in Japan, Nana and Uyanga; go and see their blog, it has really beautiful photos of Japan.

I think it's great to learn languages and other cultures; Mum found how to say Woof in other languages :

French : ouah ouah
German : wau wau
Greek : gav gav
Japanese : wan wan
Spanish : guau guau
Italian : bau bau
Russian : hav hav
Vietnamese: gâu gâu

You can travel the world without leaving your home town : learn another language, visit blogs from other countries, watch documentaries, read books, go to restaurants - there's lots of ways you can open your mind to the diversity of the world.

I'm a very proud bilingual pup Bella.

Lovely Peggy finally arrived! We are going to practice barking in all of these languages Bella - thanks for helping!
As ever you look adorable. Our mum tried to get us to wear a simple red scarf for the Portie's red bandana day - we were not at all happy. Even with treats we cannot be bothered so that makes your pics even more special to us.
