Never relax even for a second :-)
It has been a very nice day today even if the wind still blows hard here. 12,4C (53,9F) and sunshine makes the soul happy 🙂 Sometimes planning doesn´t work as it´s supposed to do so suddenly we had nothing to paint at work, even if we really have an awful lot to paint 🙂 So I stood outside and high pressure washed some huge things they will paint with normal paint (as some of You know I paint with powder that we electrify with 90 000 volts).
I have to say that I couldn´t have done a better thing 🙂 The wind couldn´t reach me where I stood and the sun warmed me up. I had one more hour to work when I had finished the job and realized I really didn´t want to go in to the factory again, so I asked if I could go early and came home really early 🙂 🙂
We walked to the stone circle hill and Nova, or as I fondly likes to call her now “the little demon from hell” was leashed all the time. I didn´t let her go without the leash until we came to the hill because from there I can see here everywhere. Yesterday I trusted her and had to regret that a lot You see. We walked down to the creek and she stayed close to me all the time, except for that time when she tried to walk on the ice in the ditches and the ice broke 🙂 🙂
We came down to the creek and she wasn´t more than a couple of meters (the same in yards) from me until we reached the end of the forest. I stopped for two seconds and took a photograph and suddenly she was gone!! I shouted as friendly as I could, but that´s really hard to do 🙂 🙂 for over an hour and no Nova in sight. My first thoughts was that she had gone through the ice somewhere else and drowned. But after that both I and Hector had to refill ourselves with our medicines so we had to go home without her.
I had to change clothes and shoes too, there is only a few dry places out here now when the snow and ice is melting and my shoes were soaking wet. We went back again (I had hoped that she already had come home before us to be honest) and went the same way we got there the first time and I was shouting loud the whole time. We came to the end of the forest and walked to a small hill, well hill is to much to call it a hump is a better word 🙂 and when we got there the little demon from hell wandered out and met us, strangely enough completely dry!!??
So I believe that she had been there all the time but since I shouted really loud trying to be heard through the strong wind, she most probably believed I was really angry and stayed so I couldn´t see her. I was naturally relieved but also angry, wanting to strangle her, when i finally saw her 🙂 But I just put the leash over her head and went home again. Since she once were abused it´s no good idea to yell at her at all. But she wasn´t allowed to sleep by my head last night but down by my feet instead 🙂 So if the weather permits it we´ll start training on coming back when I shout after her, with lots and lots of treats 🙂 🙂 🙂
It´s time to drink a lot of tea with the strawberry honey I got from Joyce some time ago. My throat is really aching after yesterdays shouting 🙂 🙂 Have a great day now!
