They should never be allowed to have a dog again!

We still have some snow on the ground. This is just enough and would love if it was like this all winter :-)

I thought it would have been better to die than to go up this morning 🙂 I can’t remember when I was that tired before but up and away we went like a normal work day. It is a while since I painted in that way so I have to say my painting was a bit wobbly 🙂 At first I had too little thinner so I poured in some more and suddenly I painted like I’m used to. But then I had to refill with more paint and took a bit too much thinner in the paint and the wobbly result showed again 🙂

The important thing is that everything is covered on these things, they are some kind of concrete molds and very huge, so it doesn’t matter if the paint ran here and there. The paint will most likely be scraped as soon as they start using these molds anyway 🙂 We were ready to go home much earlier than expected thankfully and now my weekend starts. The weather hasn’t been close to as cold (rather chilly anyway to be honest) as they said but at least as cloudy. But it did snow some when we went to work and some was still left on the ground when we came home.

We took a walk as soon as we came home and all the dogs got really interested in a scent on the ground and followed the tracks very thoroughly. It could have been the wolf passing there but it can also be wild hogs I guess. No more sightings from what I’ve heard anyway, too bad I would loved to see it before it continued on its journey south. They always seems to continue south and never stop here for any longer period of time.

Something that is really popular on Facebook here is to show photos of hunting dogs that have been killed by wolves and of course they want us to feel sorry for not the dog but the owners that have lost a family member. No one questions how these owners have acted at all! They know there are wolves in the area and they know the wolves will kill their dogs if they run in to each other! Still they let the dogs out and when they are killed they cry publicly over how evil wolves are! I think that anyone that willingly let out their dog in to an area where they know there are wolves should be prosecuted for animal abuse or cruelty towards animals!! How in the h… stupid are they if they do that??? They should never more be allowed to have or be near a dog again after doing something like that!

It's almost impossible to see but this is a snow covered spider web.

It is time to feed us all again and after that I think I’ll fall asleep on the couch watching something boring on tv 🙂

Have a great day!

  1. Hi Christer,
    Wait, the dogs are killed while they are working or the owners let their hunting dogs wander around unsupervised and they get killed then? If the dogs are killed while they are working, I guess that’s the risk of hunting with dogs. If the owners are just stupid and let their valuable hunting dogs wander around loose all the time, that’s just plain stupid. Sad for the dogs but not at all sorry for the stupid owners.
    There’s an intact male golden retriever that is frequently seen running around in the busy downtown area of my town. The owner says the dog is a “trained working dog” and won’t neuter him for that reason. I want to smack that guy so bad. Trained working dog my rear end. Lazy-ass, irresponsible owner insecure of his own masculinity is more like it. The dog is 8 years old and many pounds overweight. The owner now plans to “retire” him by posting him on Craigslist which is where creepy people pick up dogs for free or cheap so they can do bad things to them. Argh! The local community FB page people are trying to get the dog away from him and to a responsible owner.

    Okay, I’m off the soap box. 🙂

    Rocky woke up feeling bad this morning. He didn’t want to walk. I took him outside and he just stood there, hunched up and shaking. I have no idea what was wrong. I brought him back in and decided to feed Piki Dog. That got some interest out of Rocky so I bundled them up and took them for a walk. He perked up and did all his business with no problems and demanded food when we returned. Seems okay now. I’ll keep an eye on him, though.

    It’s sunny and cold. I lost my ear flap hat so I went online yesterday and purchased another one. It came this morning. Good timing. I expect that I shall now find the original one. It’s okay, though, as I bought a different color this time. 🙂

    Enjoy your nap and the rest of the day.

    • Hi Caryn!

      It is while they are working as hunting dogs. These hunters know this most likely will happen and still they let the dog out and when the dog is killed they cry in the tv news and news papers over how evil these wolfs are and how much they miss their loved familymember. If the dog was such a loved family member why on earth do they send it out to a certain death?? God forbid that they should try a new way of hunting! it’s better to sacrifice their dog so they can cry in the news instead!

      Yes that’s just a lazy dog owner, most service dogs are neautered so that they won’t care about bitches in heat. I do hope they can stop him from putting out that dog on Craig list! I’ve heard horror stories about dogs they put out there!

      I’ve stopped worrying about things like that 🙂 There’s always one dog here feeling sick for a while and then suddenly get better again 🙂 🙂 or if they feel ok it’s one of the cats 🙂 As long as they start eating and don’t throw up directly I’m calm 🙂 🙂 I hope he continues to feel good!

      Yes naturalyYou’ll find the other one again :-)but one can never have too many!

      I never came around to fall asleep in front of the tv, they showed a great documentary on wolves that fish salmon like bears do and channel six showed a Harry Potter film 🙂

      Have a great day!

      • I hope I find the other one. It looks better on me than the new one. ” Better” is a relative term. 😀
        I have no problems with people using dogs to hunt but if they are going to use dogs to hunt then they should be willing to accept the risk that the dog will be injured or killed. Either stop using the dogs or STFU if it gets killed by something else that’s known to be out there.

        Rocky seems fine now. He’s giving me sad eyes because Piki Dog is chewing a deer antler and he wants it even though there is another deer antler right there in plain view that Rocky chose and was chewing on previously. The best antler is always in the other dog’s mouth, I guess. 🙂

        November 29, 2014 at 8:47 pm

      • I think they shouldn’t send out the dog at all since they know there are wolves out there and especially not use media to say how hard it is to lose their family member when it’s clear they really don’t care abot the dog in the first place.

        Poor Rocky 🙂 Nova is like that too but if she get that particular chewy thing she wants she doesn’t care about the other dog getting a new one 🙂 Old Erna was the same, as long as she got that what ever it was she wanted she never cared that she got less and the other dog got a new chewy thing instead 🙂

    there should be a law!!! how horrible and how stupid. but then, they are hunters so maybe not too bright! they are out killing animals and their own animals are getting killed? a small message from the universe?

    • Hi Joyce!

      I’m so glad our hunters never would do that towards a dog they have 🙂 I think those people need a big message to get it 🙂

      It would be so easy for them to try other ways of hunting if that is so important to them.

      Have a great day!

    Hi Christer! I am sure as I type this you are off in dreamland! What a tiring day you have had. I hate working overtime any time of day or weekend! 🙂 We have lots of snow on the ground now, having had a generous amount of snow last night and now the snow plows are out in full force. I can hear them and I am sure they will wake me up in the night. What a shame about those dog owners. And to put it on Facebook!! That makes my blood boil, why put your pet in any sort of danger at all? Not impressed by them I can honestly say. Well, off to see what’s not on television. Seems these days nothing good ever is on the TV now. Have a great, restful Sunday!! 🙂

    • Hi Dianna!

      Yes I was sleeping like a baby 🙂
      No snow predictions here the coming ten days but it seems it will get a bit warmer again and then we might get some rain. It’s a long time prediction though so who knows how close they’ll get 🙂

      I rarely wake up because of the plow guy passing by,it needs to sound a lot more before I wake up 🙂

      What those dog owners say is really that they refuse to try and change and try to change the way they´hunt. It isnm’t possible to do like that any longer but they rather sacrifice their dog and look sad in the news instead. If they don’t care more about their “loved familymember” it can’t have been that loved!

      I agree! They don’t even seem to try to make any good programs now days! Thankfully our PBS have a channel called The Knowledge channel and they did show two great nature programs yesterday. One was about the salmon fishing wolves in British Columbia and I think the other one was from there too, it was about the Spirit bears. I must say that those white Black bears looked so cute and cuddly 🙂

      Have a great day!

  4. Hi Christer…I agree! Of course a dog will take after a wolf, not knowing the danger. Wolves will defend themselves and will win. I won’t let Mele out alone because of the coyotes here in the Southland. Wildcats, Bobcats, Mt. Lions..even Racoons are dangerous to our dogs. Many have been kills. The coyotes with attack a dog even if it’s on a leash with the owner. Grab the dog and drag it away. Happens fairl often. Your dogs are larger..and your wolves probably have enough wild thing to prey on..but our wild animals here are often starving due to our building and crowding them out of their territory. They get boxed in around the canyons and they end up coming into the neighborhoods and killing and eating pets..such as cats and small dogs. Even bigger ones if they can. The will even gang up on a person walking their dog. Very desperate wild life..and it’s sad. Kit Fox, coon and possum live right here in the neighborhood. They dig into banks of shrubs..in dense srubbery etc. I watch Mele carefully. It’s our responsibliity to protect our pets. Never mind Bertil. He doesn’t need anyones protection!! :):)

    • Hi Mona!

      These people just don’t want to change their ways and rather sacrifice their dogs and cry in public to try and change how the government look on wolves. They have decided that we are going to have wolves here in this country again and that means these people need to change how they hunt but they refuse todo so.

      Yes Wolves here still have lots to eat but they see dogs as competitors, they see them as odd behvaing wolves but still as wolves and wolves kill competitors no matter how much food they have. Besides them we have very few animals that would take a dog. It’s the wild hogs of course if they feel threatened, the lynx perhaps but they usually rather run away. A fox has problems taking cats so they won’t take even a small dog 🙂 Eagles can take a small dog though but that is very rare.

      The wolf we possibly have around at the moment is a young one and they are usually just curious and want to see what dogs and humnans do together, the old ones are the ones one must keep an eye on. They can take a dog even if the woner is close.

      We now have raccoons here in sweden, several have been photographed in camera traps, no matter how cute they are in photos we really don’t want them around. I know that anyone with a hunting license is allowed to shoot tghem if they see any.

      Have a great day!
      Christer.

  5. Här på ön har vi inga vargar – ganska skönt – men vi har vildsvin, även om “folk” säger att det inte är äkta vildsvin utan uppblandade med tamsvin. Men elaka är dom i alla fall….. 😯
    Fast elaka, och elaka, dom gillar inte att man kommer mellan dom och kultingarna och lösspringande gillar dom inte alls! 😦
    Men vi håller oss nogsamt från den delen på ön där dom finns, här på vår sida finns bara rådjur – och dom har vi faktiskt inga problem med! 😛
    KRAM ❤

    • Hejsan Susie!

      Jag tror nog det var en stor hund han trots allt såg, inga spår av varg här men dock av hund. En rejäl hundskit låg vid en stig, Orvarstorlek på den 🙂 Inget hår eller några benrester i den så och jag är den ende som har stora hundar här.

      Alla grisar, vilda, tama och blandade är lika farliga om man kommer mellan modern och ungarna. Så det är noga att hålla ögonen öppna. Men finns de på ena delan av ön kommer de nog snart till er också 🙂

      Rådjuren brukar sköta sig här, men jag har några växter som jag vill skall slippa extra beskärning så dem vill jag faktiskt skydda i år, har annars aldrig gjort det faktiskt.

      Ha det gott!
      Christer.

  6. stupid hunters. 😦

    • Hi Cindi!

      Thankfully not all hunters are like that. The ones in this area knows better than that thankfully.

      Have a great day!
