Life goes on.
Yes it does even if it’s hard sometimes. I realised something was very wrong with Hector on Wednesday afternoon when I came home from work, he was always the first one to run out the door of the dog house when I opened it. He wasn’t there at all so I was just about to go out into the dog yard when he slowly came in from the dog yard and followed me out to the garden. He laid down in front of the entrance and wanted to stay there when we were about to go out on our walk.
He finally rose up and followed us after I had been talking to him for a long while. We walked very slowly and stopped many times so he could rest in the shadows. The other ones were far ahead of us but Bertil and I stayed close to Hector all the time. He stayed by himself all evening and didn’t want to eat when it was time, he did though just because he knew I wanted him to. That didn’t help the next morning though, he refused to get up at all and I could see that life just wasn’t fun any longer, so I had to take that hard decision, the one we never want to take. Now I worry that it won’t take that long time till I have to take that decision again but Orvar is fine at the moment and I hope he will be for a long time more.
It will be an indoors day today, the temperature will rise to 9C (48,2F) if we’re lucky. They keep promising that the warm weather is on its way but I think we all have lost the hope that it actually will 🙂 If it isn’t rain that’s falling it’s hail. Thunder however has stayed away from this area but we might get some tonight. We actually had warmer and nice days during winter this year 🙂 The only thing that grows as it should in the garden is the grass and it grows fast. I can’t mow it though since it is so wet that it would clog my lawn mower and it’s never nice to drag around an electric cable on wet ground either 🙂
I think I’ll read a book and then tak a nap before thinking of even taking another walk today. My neighbor told me he found a badger’s burrow in the cow pasture outside my cottage. He knows I want to photograph them so I think I’ll go out by myself later on to see if I can find it. They might not show today due to the bad weather but it would be nice to know where it is when the new ones comes out to see what the world’s like. I want to thank You for Your comments in the previous post.
Have a great day!
