Crazy Weather

This is how it looked outside my parents house this afternoon. Yes, it's snow. Last weekend we had summer weather with temperatures in the high 70's F (about 25 degrees Celsius) and this weekend it's freakn' cold with temperatures as low as 35 degrees F (2 degrees C). It's crazy! We don't have any snow here in the city, but my parents' house is only an hour north of us.

And in regards to the hockey game between Sweden -Finland, it looks like the Finns are going to take the bronze medal. =(

Poor Baby!

Yesterday I discovered that my precious baby Alih had injured a nail. His nail is broken, with the broken piece still attached, and the pulp is visible. Poor Baby!! He must have done this a few days ago ‘cause I have noticed James sniffing his paw, and he has growled at James when he’s been wanting to lick it. I mean, isn’t that a sign that something is wrong or what???!!!!! Precious Alih, still no one checks his paw. I will have to wait and see what happens over the weekend though, but if that piece is still attached by Monday, I will have to contact the vet. My poor old man, everything happens to him. What has he not gone through!

Watched the hockey game, Sweden – Canada last night. We lost to no surprise. Will play Finland for the bronze medal tonight. Very exciting - looking forward to that!

Look how small James has been - time flies!

Today has been somewhat of a rough day. I attended a funeral. It was a close friend of mine’s mom who recently passed away. Very, very sad.

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Det finns ingen sten
så tung
som sorgen
vi känner
Det finns ingen ros
så vacker
som minnena
av dig

A World Traveller

James took an anti-rabies test about a week ago, and today the results came back. He passed!! This means he will soon be able to get his passport. Maybe my little blue one will become an international traveller just like his "old bro"Alih.

Well one thing is for sure - James loves to run. =) He once again had a great time at the lake last night. Running and swimming like the wild man he is.

Nothing much

Nothing much is going on over here. The pups are napping and so is the big one (Mr. L.). We are still sick with a nasty cold but I believe it’s going in the right direction though ‘cause today feels better than yesterday. Took the dogs out for a descent walk this morning, they got to play in the park for quite some time too, and they really enjoyed it. Even James calmed down back home.

Anyhow, now is time for lunch... the Baby Blue just woke up and is sounding like a little kitten. =) It means he is bored. Better eat and take the doggies out. Ciao!

This is how they looked like a few minutes ago... before the kitten woke up. =)

I'm sick!

I have a cold, and it sucks. But the one who hates it the most, is probably James. Since Mr. L is sick too James did not get any long walks today, we only took him to some different parks where he could run around on his own and chase the ball we threw for him. I did a little training with him tonight too, in the park, and he was so darn good. Fun, fun fun! Maybe the pretty baby is getting older and wiser, and sometimes a little break can make wonders too (I have not trained much with him this last week since I have been too busy with other things – other things being the thesis).

Well since he did not get adequate exercise today he’s upset for sure, and he has been getting himself in trouble all day long. I just hope he will let us sleep tonight. Having a dog with ADD is not fun when being sick, I can tell you that much. =) I have been working on the thesis all day pretty much, and a big part of the evening too. I took a break to watch the Cashmere Mafia though. Big smile – this show is very good. I know, I know, it’s no Sex & the City, but it’s good. Aaaah, this got me thinking of the Sex & the City movie, I cannot wait for it to come out! =)

Nighty night!
