Doris the doe and her daughter are ok :-)
It’s around 7 am and it’s still pitch black outside, I’m waiting for my rice porridge to get warm enough to eat but all the animals have already eaten their breakfasts. I cooked lots of liver before Yule and now the dogs get some in their food every day and they love it 🙂
Nova has problems with her ears again, they are made to get infections the vet said, so we’ve been up several times last night. She flops her ears all the time and scratches so hard that she shouts out loud sometimes. First I just rinsed them out and even though they were clean it did help for a while. Then I used saline and that helped a bit longer. After that I tried some ear rinsing product for dogs that I’ve bought from the pharmacy and that helped for a long time. Finally I used something the vet gave me the last time she had problems with her ears and that’s heavy stuff 🙂 Finally it seems her ears are fine again.
We’ll have to use this for at least two weeks now and since I know it helps it’s worth it. I’m not sure Nova thinks so though 🙂 🙂 🙂 She looks like I’m trying to kill her every time she knows I’ll drop something in to her ears 🙂 🙂 🙂 All my dogs are ear dogs really, dogs with hanging ears usually are. But I didn’t think Nova should be since her ears doesn’t hang down. Well that’s life I guess.
Doris and her daughter came like always last night so at least I know it wasn’t any of them the lynx killed. Lynx’s need to eat as well so I really couldn’t complain if she (we have a female living close to the village) had taken one of them. Overhunting by humans is another thing and that I don’t like at all.
I already knew that the Maple Cream Cookies I got from Joyce are delicious but I got a new favorite this year, naturally the label has fallen of and I can’t find it but it was something with Biscotti (help me here Joyce) They were truly delicious! I’ve also started with the horehound candies 🙂 I do love the Sassafras taste 🙂 I remember that we could buy something similar when I was a kid but only in a special store that sold old-time candy. I mustn’t forget the chocolate covered coffee beans 🙂 🙂 🙂
The porridge is almost ready and it’s time for me to stop for today. It won’t be light enough to take a walk for an hour and a half yet so that will give me plenty of time toi enjoy my breakfast 🙂
Have a great day!
