He’ll be the end of me one day :-)
I’m pretty sure that Orvar one day will kill me, totally unconsciously but still he will kill me. I don’t know how he does it but suddenly he just stands behind me and when I turn around and tries to walk way I fall over him. Or like now when I stood up from the chair meaning to go to my pot of tea and realises that he’s lying just beside me when I stumble on him. I mean, he’s a big dog and he shouldn’t be able to just be there without me knowing it 🙂
One drawback of having four black dogs is that they are impossible to see in the dark. Like when I’m going to bed and think the big boys are sleeping downstairs, Nova in my bed and Sune beside me. I can’t turn on the light in my bedroom until I reach my bed so there’s about four meters (much the same in yards) of total darkness (in autumn and winter) before I can see anything. Nine times out of ten Hector sleeps beside the chimney, which I have to pass on my way to my bed. It’s hard to see where to fall best too when it is ark and I also scare the poor dog. One could think that any of us would learn one day that this most likely will happen, every night but oh no 🙂
Only one of all the dogs that I’ve had living with me has been black, she was a Golden Retriever mix and had that deep golden color that I love so much. To be honest, most of my dogs has been born in my home and since their mothers and fathers been black it’s no surprise they too was born black. Nova was an emergency move so I didn’t choose that color and Sune was the only male dog in that litter and I wanted a male one and once I had met him I just couldn’t look after another dog 🙂
I’ve never understood people who say no to a dog because of its color?! I’m not a superstitious person and I doubt that the color has anything to do with how a dog turns out or that the color in any way would affect my life, well beside tripping over them in the dark 🙂 I’ve also had a few black cats and they have been just wonderful, no one ever even close to be as nasty as Bertil the cat usually is 🙂
It’s time for that pot of tea and something to eat. No blog tomorrow because I’ll work overtime and my dogs and I won’t be home until it is time to go to bed. I really wish I hadn’t agreed to this 🙂
Have a great day!
