Today eleven years ago.
Today eleven years ago I almost lost my dog and all the puppies she was carrying, almost everything went wrong during the two days she tried to give birth to the puppies and to make a long story short we had to go to a vet clinic rather far away to save my girl Erna and hopefully rescue her puppies too. It almost worked, Erna survived and so did four puppies but four died. Two of those puppies and the only surviving today lives here and I call them Orvar and Hector. I also call them “Are You totally deaf” and “You must be the most disgusting dog ever eating that thing” 🙂 🙂 🙂
Old Erna was anything but a good mother, she wanted nothing to do with them but she did allow them to feed. She rather quickly decided that it was something wrong with Hector and made his life a misery as soon as she could. She wasn’t kind to him until she was ten years old, Orvar did nothing wrong and if he actually did she punished Hector. To be honest, we all realised that Hector was a bit odd because he just can’t interact with other dogs. I’m pretty sure he’s a bit autistic, very smart but sort of living in a world of his own. He doesn’t like to be hugged but he does like that I rub my head towards his 🙂
Orvar on the other hand is the kindest dog there is but he sure hasn’t all the horses in the stable 🙂 All canoes are manned but no one paddles in the same direction if You know what I mean 🙂 But he does understand his brother and he is a master of searching for things even if I’ve never taught him to do so. Once he found the neighbors dog within ten minutes even if they already had been out searching for him for several hours. He can also hold a grudge longer than anybody, human or other animal, that I know of 🙂
All four were suposed to get marrow bones today but they are all a bit wobbly in their stomachs after eating something yesterday that they most likely should have left alone. So that’ll have to wait till next weekend I think but they have gotten a few smaller treats, after all it is a birthday today.
We’re having a wonderful summers day here, around 22C (72F), sunshine most of the time and a light breeze to keep the flies occupied with something else than me. They also need to stay alert because of the wast numbers of troll spindles, or dragonflies as You call them. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this many here. Some are so tiny and others really big but few stay still long enough for me to get a good photo of them I’m afraid.
It’s time to make a pot of coffee and perhaps I’ll make an apple pie. I’ve picked the most delicious apples there is and that kind only grows here in the entire world because I once sowed it myself 🙂 It is soo sweet but still a bit acidulous. It wouldn’t work for apple sauce but I think it would work fine in a pie. But then again, they are perfect for eating just as they are 🙂
Have a great day!
