Fish and rice.

I had to go to the super market this morning, Sune has a worried stomach and I guess it is all treats he’s been given since he does what he is supposed to outdoors. Old dogs can take that treat (that really is a dog food I never would give my dogs, but it is great as a treat now and again) but apparently it was too tough for little Sune. So I went away and bought frozen fish and rice, that will be his dinners until the stomach calms down. I might continue with boiled chicken after a while if it takes time to calm down that stomach of his.


Sunshine, strong winds and rather chilly this morning. Perfect because all flies will stay hidden in the trees and bushes 🙂



I think this is the first time they all look at the same direction 🙂


Always looking for hares, even when she eats grass.


I learned that from a vet while he was screaming at me that I must be the most stupid person in the world not doing so from the beginning. Until then I never had had any stomach problems and just didn’t know how to treat it so I admit that it took too long until I went to the vet. You might think I would dislike that vet after that but no, I prefer people telling me I’m an idiot if I actually am one. I just hate vets (and others) that just gives lots of excuses and sucks up to me as a pet owner almost blaming the pet for any illness.




A wasp nest had fallen down from the trees. No wasps left thankfully.



Nova will of course also get some of it, otherwise she most likely won’t eat at all 🙂 The other two really doesn’t care what they get as long as they get something 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’m almost finished with all planting and replanting of the seedlings for this year. There are still some seeds that won’t germinate until next year as best but they are placed on the north side of my cottage, they still will get sunshine wich isn’t too good but soon the sun won’t go around the cottage any more.








The weather will stay sort of stable the coming days so I’ll rest today as one should during a vacation but tomorrow I’ll mow the lawn again. This time the grass won’t be too high or too wet so maybe it will work having the collector attached to it. Last time all the grass just smeared  and refused to leave the cutting blade 🙂 I’ll also start digging new flower beds or perhaps just expand those I have.  Then the problem comes to keep the cats away from what they see as a huge litter box and to keep the dogs away from cleaning up after them 🙂 🙂 But it usually helps pouring coffee over the ground, for some reason my cats just hate coffee 🙂


I tried to have Sune leashed to Nova again yesterday. She worked great but Sune didn’t work at all 🙂


He just couldn’t leave her alone so they both almost ended up in a ditch 🙂


The first ripe raspberry in the forest. It was delicious!



It is time for some breakfast  and perhaps I’ll watch some tv while eating. It’s mostly reruns they show during summers but looking at tv doesn’t really mean looking at it 🙂


What’s that interesting smell?


Wild pork chops perhaps 🙂


Have a great day!

  1. Det kan vara någit riktigt otäckt som luktar, för ibland så smakar det mest äckliga förmodligen som skinkstek eller grillad kyckling för hundar – fast man inte kan förstå hur dom kan äta det! 😦
    Min erfarenhet är dock att katter är betydligt kräsnare och inte äter precis vad som helst. Ja, förutom döda fåglar och möss och sånt förstås. Men det är ju egentligen inte äckligt, det är ju rent kött!! 😦 😦
    Precis exakt nu så kände jag nått som kröp på armen på mig – och vad skådade mitt vänstra öga? Jo, en liten fästingnymf! Man brukar ju inte känna dom när dom är mindre än ett knappnålshuvud, men jag tror jag har utvecklat ett 6:e sinne; ett fästingkänselsinne! *fniss*
    Gick ut kl 8 och började med att klippa gräset, på innertomten, förträdgården och runt garaget och boden. Sen fortsatte jag med att ta rätt på hälften av riset jag klippte den från Kerria-busken igår. (Rolle skulle ta hand om det igår, kom in och hade bara fixat hälften. Han såg inte den andra jättehögen!) Därefter har jag “deadheading” i pallkragarna, samt klippt bort en massa på den vårblommande klematisen vid ingången – den började hänga ut så man fick väja – och så rensade jag lite i stenrabatten nedanför. Och någonstans där så fick jag alltså en (hoppas jag) fästing på mig…..

    • Hejsan Susie!

      Tror nog det var något vilt som de luktade efter, Har ju en hel del som går bara precis här utanför. Dessutom har jag kännt doften av gödsel, så det kanske är någon som sprider det på fälten i närheten. Men jag håller med ddig, hundat har en förmåga att gilla stanken av riktigt otrevliga saker 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Jag kan också känna de där riktigt små rackarna, otrevligt! men praktiskt 🙂 Tror det blir så när man haft hund i flera år 🙂

      Här har det inte ansträngts för mycket. Grävde upp ett par lungörter, de trivs lite för bra här hos mig, sprider sig något elakt kan jag säga! Planterat en liten ros också plus det sista av sådderna. Men annars sov vi middag i över en timme nyss 🙂

      Ibland växer det bara för bra och då får man rernsa bort. Tyvärr är det aldrig vackra saker häe, bara de eländiga syrenerna 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  2. such beautiful photos, but I can see a change in the foliage already, Fall must come early to you as well.Our trees have already lost the bright green, I don’t mean they are turning color, not that but the grass and trees fade a bit, already.The photos of Sune with all the other animals just melts my heart, they have all accepted him so are a lucky man to be surrounded by such joy.

    • Hi Laurie!
      Yes it is changing here now, slowly but still. The first frost usually comes the first week in September here but after that it can stay warm and nice for quite some time. But I am surprised over how much still looks absolutely new here, I guess it is the rain helping with that.

      Yes they have accepted him very fast, didn’t take five minutes!

      Have a great day!

  3. Hi Christer,
    Wild pork chops. 🙂 None of those around me, thankfully.
    I never heard the fish and rice remedy. My vet says boiled ground beef or lamb and rice. It’s probably the rice that is the part that works and the other is there for enticement. Hope Sune’s stomach settles down quickly.

    I have used small pieces of all beef hot dog as treats. They don’t bother the dogs and do have some nutritional value. Rocky is apparently a junk food dog. He absolutely loves Beggin Strips and will not touch “gourmet” doggie treats. He is a polite dog, though, and if you were to offer him one, he would happily take it. Then he would bury it in the yard because, even though he does not want it, no one else is going to have it either.

    We have done our morning walk very early today as it is already rather warm. Something in the yard spooked Rocky and he took off for the door. I didn’t see anything but it sure scared him. Could have been the woodchuck or it could have been a small walnut falling off the tree and pinging him in the butt. 🙂

    Enjoy the day!

    • Hi Caryn!
      I have only seen tracks after them but they say we have rather many of them walking around here now.
      I guess You’re right aout the rice being the important ingredient and boiled fish /lamb/ ground beef are all very easy for the stomach to digest.

      I’ve only found all beef hot dogs with lots of spices in them and I don’t think that would be very wise to use 🙂 🙂 🙂 But we have a dog treat with liver in it that is great, I just haven’t found any yet. This dog food is truly loved by dogs even though I see it as a killer if used as food 🙂 But even small pieces was too strong for a puppy it seems. My dogs eat anything, they are so many now that even if they try to hide it there’s always a risk the others will find it 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Leafs and butterflies can also be very scary sometimes 🙂 🙂 🙂 But a car coming down the road in high speed is usually nothing to be afraid of 🙂 🙂 🙂
      Have a great day!

  4. Kokt fisk och ris, det fick jag göra många gånger åt Zac när han var valp, han åt ständigt och jämt hästskit och annat som han blev dålig i magen av:) Underbar bild på Sune när han sniffar i luften:) Ha det gott/Monne

    • Tjänare Monne!
      Samma här, Hector är mer eller mindre uppfödd på det 🙂 Orvar å andra sidan kunde äta precis vad som helst och ändå må toppen 🙂 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  5. hi christer! hahahaha….wild pork chops! i give teddy rice when her stomach gets bad. she gets fish each day but i mix it with the rice when she is sick. i love the photo of sune and theodor. how cute. i can’t tell by the photos but is sune growing much? maybe he is going to be a little pup! joyce

    • Hi Joyce!
      I wonder if he saw himself as the big hunter, chasing wild pork chops 🙂 🙂 🙂
      I normally don’t give them fish, I don’t know why though. Mostly I buy some liver to mix in the food instead. Force of habit I guess 🙂

      I was just thinking about that, if he grows at all 🙂 But he was as big as Bertil when he arrived and now he’s as big as Teodor so I guess he is growing 🙂 I was looking at his paws the other day, they look like bear paws 🙂 So my guess is that he will be rather big, just slightly smaller than Hector and Orvar. Otherwise he will look really funny with a sort of hefty but small body 🙂

      Have a great day!

  6. hi christer! teddy has HUGE paws. my thumb is okay. it still doesn’t have too much feeling. i can’t bend it at the knuckle either. i make myself use it as much as possible and i do some physical therapy too. hopefully eventually it will work again!

    • Hi Joyce!
      I do wonder how big Sune will be 🙂 He might be something in size like Teddy then, who knows 🙂

      You really cut Your thumb bad! I guess it will take quite som time until that thumb of Yours is back to normal, but I do hope it goes quickly!

      Have a great day!

  7. Hi Christer, hope Sune is feeling better soon. Wonder if that fish and rice would work for humans as well when we get a bad stomach feeling as Grenville had last night. Have you ever tried it? The photos of Sune and Bertil were very cute today. It seems as if he is well accepted in your household. Hope you do take some time to enjoy your vacation now that the rain has stopped.

    • Hi Beatrice!
      I do hope so too! But he is jumping around like always so I doubt he’s feeling especially bad.

      They do recommend food like that to people that has stomach problems, it is light food and doesn’t worry the stomach at all but forget most of the spices! It will taste absolutely nothing 🙂 🙂 🙂

      He got accepted after just a few minutes. I have enjoyed this day to the fullest, even if I did do a few things 🙂

      Have a great day!

  8. You can probably guess which photo will grace the pages of Caturday. So sweet. Sorry Sune got a tummy upset. Glad you’ve got the right food for him. He’s sooo cute.

    • Hi Z&M!
      Puppies always get worried stomachs 🙂 but I do hope it will calm down soon!

      He is a cute little monster 🙂

      Have a great day!

  9. Christer,
    I love poor Nova trying to contend with Sune, and I loved Sune getting rubbed. Gracie chased one of my cats when I first brought her home and was bullied by the other. She doesn’t chase the cat any more, but she is still bullied.

    I had to feed one of my dogs boiled chicken and rice when she had an upset stomach. When she was better, it took a while before she’d eat regular dog food.

    • Hi Kat!
      She really tried but Sune just destroyed everything 🙂 🙂 🙂
      Strangely enough Sune never tried to catch any of the cats, I think he just feel sorry for those very strange dogs 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Boiled chicken is the next step here if it continues to stay worried for a longer time and it is always a problem to go back to the usual food after this 🙂 🙂 🙂 Old Erna could start a hunger strike until she realized it was useless, I do have a heart of stone when it comes to those things 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!

  10. yep, boiled ground beef and rice is what I’ve been told. And cottage cheese. and after that a lamb and rice dry food? maybe?
    Do you want me to send you some puppy treats? I could send what we use at the kennel!
    😀 – Cindi

    • Hi Cindi!
      I guess we’ve used what is most common around us. Fish and chicken over here and ground beef and lamb over at Yours 🙂 But I’ve never heard of cottage cheese, I didn’t think a puppy could eat dairy products at all.

      Thank You but I’ll be out later today myself to see what I can find 🙂

      Have a great day!

  11. I also use honey with young pups because it’s full of protein and so easy to digest. I guess you’ve had your hour and a half of summer 😎 😎 ? Should be much easier, now, with less flies… Love Sune and Teodor. What a great photo session. Gonna be a big dog, that’s for sure. Have a great day and try to get some photos of those wild pork chops!

    • Hi Sharlene!
      I use fructose if they seem to loose energy, but normally I don’t have that here at home. But I do have honey! I think I’ll put some in his food tomorrow! Thanks for the tip!

      Yes I think You’re right! We’ve had our summer and autumn is already here 🙂 I sure hope that doesn’t mean winter comes early 🙂
      Those pork chops always run away long before I even come close 🙂

      Have a great day!
