It’s already getting better.

The scratching has already started to stop so the shot works rather quickly. Well they do get in to a sort of scratching frenzy for a couple of seconds but this is nothing compared to how it was before the visit to the vet.

The Forbidden Forest.

The Forbidden Forest.


The day started chilly and misty but the sun has shined most part of the afternoon and it’s quite warm, I hope this will take care of the ice and snow that still exists out there. Now it’s sort of treacherous since all ice can’t be seen and since it can be in the middle of a road it’s so easy to slip on it. So far I’ve managed to stay on my feet though 🙂

Tomorrow I’ll drive to the super market again, I need food for next week, more fire logs and a new mattress for the dogs. They tend to destroy every one I place in the dog house 🙂 I don’t know why but they start digging in it and as soon as they’ve made a hole in it they start pulling out the filling 🙂 So I really need to buy duct tape and start filling big plastic sacs with all filling and mattress residues 🙂 The duct tape is for sealing those sacks so they don’t open up too early, the garbage men doesn’t like that at all.

I need fish food as well so I’ll most likely drive to a pet shop as well and while I’m there I just as well buy a couple of gold-fish that I can place in the pond later in spring. Just small ones because I don’t want them to eat all the tadpoles that most likely will be there too. I had quite a lot of small frogs there last summer after the frog egg rescue from the ditches they were about to dig up again 🙂

It’s time to make a pot of tea again, I’ve already taken a nap today but I’m just as tired as before so I might just take another one after I’ve had some tea 🙂

  1. hey christer! maybe you should look for one of those dog beds that can’t be torn apart? i know ll bean makes them but you might find them somewhere in your area. teddy won’t lay on a dog bed….go figure! joyce

    • Hi Joyce!

      I have one of those and they tore a hole in it within a day 🙂 🙂 🙂

      My dogs go to the dog beds when they want to be left alone, otherwise it’s my bed they prefer 🙂

      Have a great day!

  2. Hi Christer,
    I bought a dog bed that claimed it couldn’t be torn apart. Rocky tore it apart in less than a day. He’s talented for a little dog.

    The sun is out here but it’s colder than midnight on Pluto. It’s 10F with a wind chill that makes it feel like -4F. I’m not going anywhere. The jeep will yell bad car words at me if I try to start it up and it will grumble the whole time it’s running. No. I’m staying where it’s warm. My errands can wait until tomorrow when it will be balmy 30F. 🙂

    Glad to hear that the dogs have responded quickly to the shots and are not itching so much.
    Enjoy your nap and the rest of the day.

    • Hi Caryn!

      The same over here 🙂 It didn’t take a day until Nova had made a hole in it 🙂 🙂 🙂

      I wouldn’t go out in those temperatures either 🙂 My car get so grumpy that I sometimes wonder if it is breaking down 🙂 🙂 🙂 Somewhat warmer here tomorrow but they have changed the weather forecast so it will get colder already on Monday. To bad, I liked this warmer winter 🙂

      It must feel so nice for the dogs not itching all the time.

      Have a great day!

  3. Här har det blåst friska vindar idag;) Det finns inte något kvar av vare sig snö eller is:) Har suttit inne hela dagen framför datorn och du milde vad man tappar bort tiden, upptäckte nu vid fem att jag inte ätit sedan frukosten klockan åtta, inte konstigt att jag var hungrig:))Ha det gott/Monne

    • Tjänare Monne!

      Jag har hört vinden hela dagen men skogen har tagit nästan allt av den 🙂

      Jag läste det få FB 🙂 🙂 🙂 Tiden bara springer iväg när man är framför datorn 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  4. Tänk hur olika hundar kan vara. Vår tax Brasse var specialist på att bita sönder sina leksaker. Han hade dom i 1 minut, sen var pipet borta och leksaken trasig eller bollen platt. 😦
    Penny var specialist på att bita sönder korgar, hundsängar, vägghörnor, mattor, skor, strumpor – ja, allt som gick att bita på. 😦 Men bara när hon var ett litet busfrö! Hon växte ifrån det som tur var!! 🙂
    Santos däremot biter så otroligt försiktigt i sina leksaker. Man ser inte att han bitit ens en gång. Men han älskar att springa omkring med dom inne – ute vill han inte leka med något alls. Jo, sina kompisar förstås! 🙂 🙂
    Idag har han opererats – igen – så vi var i Visvy hela dagen och väntade på att han skulle kvickna till och vi få domen. Och mycket riktigt, det fanns inget stygn eller knut kvar, däremot så fanns det en knuta av ärrvävnad som han tydligen slickar sönder hela tiden. 😦 😦
    Den är nu borttagen och så har vetten sytt – med vanlig tråd – och så ska vi dit om 10 dagar och ta stygnen. Tills dess är det krage på, hela tiden! Både vid mat och utomhus!! Det måste få läka ifred!!!
    Han ska äta antibiotika och Lergigan, det senare är lugnande men framförallt är det mot den klåda som kommer att uppstå när såret läker. Nu håller vi alla tummar, fingrar, tår – allt!!!

    • Hejsan Susie!

      Ja det är de unga som går hårt åt sakerna här, de gamla bryr sig inte alls. Pipleksaker går inte alls för de tror att de skadar den när den piper 🙂 Du skulle se oron i deras ögon när den piper till 🙂

      Stackars Santos! Men jag hoppas verkligen att detta är det sista de behöver göra nu!

      Håller tummarna här också!

      ha det gott!

    • Hi Dianna!

      Most of Sweden actually looks much like this 🙂 The best think I’ve ever done is to move to the countryside 🙂

      Have a great day!

  5. I wonder if you could buy one of those mattress for a crib, a baby mattress? maybe that would be stronger???
    I’m so sick of this weather. I can’t even pick up the dog poop without chipping at it with a shovel!
    I know that last Fall I said I was going to cut back on my gardening….
    But now I can’t wait for Spring to be here and get outside!

    • Hi Cindi

      I think nothing can survive when two dogs decides to make their worst effort 🙂

      You did have an unusual dry summer and I think what ever water You’ll get the ground just will suck it up. No such problems here, our summer was just the opposite to Yours 🙂

      I do long for spring but I’ll have to wait until late Mars I’m afraid.

      Have a great day!
