It was very warm. Giuilia carried the baby around in a fanny pack, a simulated nest Pipino the baby the road near il colle Elettra and Pipino Pipino today, Turns out, he is a rooster! Pepino, he is a pet because there is already one rooster in the hen house! Guga, still beautiful Pippo, aged 13, lost an eye since I saw him last march.
