Winter wonderland and a dogs that just makes me crazy :-)
I know I can´t trust any weather forecast here but still, I really didn´t expect 10 cm (4 inches) of snow outside when I woke up this morning 🙂 But that was nothing compared to how much snow it was on the long road between the village and the highway to work. I was the first one driving on the road this morning and became the one that plowed the road with my small and low Mazda. I think it was around 30 cm (12 inches) of snow on the road and I wasn´t even close to drive to fast 🙂 🙂 🙂
I managed to buy some more fire logs on my way home and I saw hundreds of geese on the fields outside the village, eating what ever they could find in the snow that only had melted slowly during the day.
We had walked our promenade and the dogs had eaten their food when they all wanted to go out into the garden again. I think I left them out of sight for five minutes and suddenly I only had one dog left! After shouting and whistling for a minute or two one more came home from god knows where, but Nova was still missing.
When she hadn´t come home after ten minutes I walked out on the field outside my cottage and started shouting after her. No dog to be seen anywhere. It couldn´t be because she couldn´t hear me, believe me 🙂 I have sung in choirs for several years and and my lung capacity is 50% bigger than that on an average person so my voice echoed over the fields, the forest and the bog 🙂
So we walked the way we most often walk and especially to a place where she had cought a vole this afternoon. She got really annoyed when I didn´t allow her to eat it too 🙂 But the vole were still there and I couldn´t see any tracks from her either. We were out for half an hour and I had given up for a while and talked with a neighboring couple so they could keep there eyes open too. Just when they were about to leave a small black dog could be seen running from the bog towards my cottage 🙂
I could see that she was ashamed already from a distance but I did tell her that she was the most shameful dog that ever existed from a family of the most shameful dogs there ever were. I have no idea what she has done and I´m not sure I want to know either 🙂 But she was exhausted when she came home so now she´s sleeping deeply in my bed 🙂 It´s friday night and it´s SciFi night at channel six 🙂 Have a great day now!
