Thinking about the coming summer.
I´m sitting here in mu kitchen having a cup of tea and enjoying the sunshine that almost hurts my eyes. If this had been any other part of the year I most probably would have change place because the sun would have made me boil from its heat. But this time of year it gives no heat at all, it´s just shining giving hope of a brighter and warmer future. The heat comes from my stove and that´s not to bad either 🙂
I hate going shopping on a weekend, it makes me feel like I´ve lost a too important part of my time at home, so I usually do all shopping on fridays. But I was a bit to tired yesterday so I went this morning. I needed more blueberry soup and bought one liquid with healthy bacteria in it and two packages with powder. That will keep me going the rest of this weekend. But I am much better now, it´s just the tiredness that still stays like a faithful old dog.
Speaking of dogs by the way. I´m planning of letting a new one move in here next summer. I like to know that there never will be a time when it doesn´t live a dog by my side so now when my boys already are seven years old it´s time to think of a new one.
I want a dog that isn´t to small, nothing wrong with small dogs but I decided long ago that a dog in my home must make it if I should stumble and fall on it 🙂 🙂 🙂 I am a bit clumsy since I got my rheumatic disease and it happens that I stumble on my dogs in the dark 🙂 🙂 But it can´t be too big either because it must fit in the dog yard and dog house. So no chihuahuas or Grand danes 🙂
I also want a dog that more or less will love the whole world and greet anyone with love and happiness, so no Chow either 🙂 Preferable not a dog with long hair either, short haired dogs are so much easier to keep clean but I know what I´m like when I see a puppy 🙂 🙂 🙂 So that leaves me with dogs from a bigger spaniel to any retrievers or German shepherd or Rottweiler. But most likely it will be a mixed breed in the right size because they don´t cost that much to buy.
I want a puppy too, because I want my two boys to help me raise it too. Older dogs are perfect educators for a young puppy. But nothing of this will happen until next vacation, I want those four weeks from work to get the chance to know the little one before reality hits us and I´ll spend a lot of time at work again.
So until then I´ll keep on looking at ads with dogs for sale. Now days it´s mostly really small dogs since they are the latest fashion. But every now and again perfect puppies shows up, like a couple of weeks ago when I saw this ad for Dalmatians. They were all blue eyed so they couldn´t be used for breeding or dog shows. That would have been perfect for me even if there were a big risk of them being deaf (something that can happen to Dalmatians). It is a much bigger challenge to have a deaf dog and it takes a lot of work to make it work. But if the owner uses signs and always tries to have eye contact with the dog it usually works fine, after many trials and errors 🙂 🙂 🙂
Now it´s time to make a new pot of tea, drink some blueberry soup and after that have a little nap 🙂 Have a great day now, I will.
