Spring is here again :-)
We’ve had a spring day today and the evening was wonderful. It had rained some during the night and then the sun came. It never got any warmer than 13 C (55 F) but walking in the sun shine was just delightful. The coolness of the day also stopped most mosquitoes to leave trees and bushes so we could walk out to the bog without getting attacked by them 🙂
But it feels like we’ll get frost tonight so I guess that means I won’t get any grapes this year either. We normally have the last night with frost in the first week of June here, after that I don’t need to cover fragile plants during nights. I’ll go out later and place some pots on my patio, frost this late usually never reaches that area.
Nova has too much energy for the old boys. She loves Hector and wants to play with him all the time but he has his bad leg and he is after all almost ten years old. She needs a friend with just as much energy as she has so I’m thinking of maybe let a new dog move here this summer when my vacation starts. I know four dogs, should I really have that 🙂 🙂 🙂 Well four dogs is easier to have than three because they usually walks around in pairs, but still 🙂
If I do get another dog I think I want a puppy. Things will be easier because it will sort of grow in to how things works in this family, it will learn already from the start that Nova is the Queen of the Universe and she won’t have to teach it the hard way 🙂 I always have mixed breeds but it would be fun to have either a Hovawart or a Dogue de Bordeaux. Not especially tiny dogs to be honest 🙂 Perhaps I should look for a smaller dog? Big ones usually gets the problems Orvar, Hector, Erna and old Viran had, bad joints and backs.
Well it is still a few weeks till vacation so I’ll have some time to think about this. But it would be nice to see Nova tired from playing all day and not just short moments every now and again. It is time for something to eat and today I think I’ll make cocoa.
Have a great day!
