Hi guys! My name is Lasa, I live in the Little Black Giants kennel in Backa Palanka, near the Danube. I have a sister Lena and a friend Isa, who recently came from Russia. He’s still young, but he’s almost as big as the two of us. They say he’ll be huge … I’m wondering if he’ll be bigger than me.

Life in Backa Palanka is very fun. Every morning we go for a walk, we swim in the Danube, we run through the forest. It’s the best in the winter, when the snow falls. Lena and I play all day in a big yard and we run across the snow. Sometimes we fight with Fluffy, a black male puddle. He is black and curly, only small, like a puppy. But he runs like a big dog, even I can’t get him …

It’s not bad here during the summer as well, it’s just a little hot, but swimming in the Danube is great, we refresh ourselves and play in the water. Although, if I can choose, winter is my season. When everything gets white, the lake freezes, sometimes nature looks like Newfoundland, an island in Canada from where our ancestors are.
