He struggled as if his life depended on it :-)
We’ve had a wonderful day here today, sunshine, just below 0C (32F) and no wind (the night was really cold though but I don’t mind). I think I could love winter if this weather was the standard and the snow stayed away most of the time. Well it could fall some during Christmas but that’s it🙂 I can’t see that it’s too much to ask for🙂
But clouds have come and covers the sky, snow will come tonight and it will continue to snow for two days. Well at least the borders of the road will be visible again, I have big problems seeing them on my way to work in the dark because the grass is so dirty it has the same color as the asphalt. at first they predicted snowfall for the two coming days but now it looks like it will only snow tomorrow night. I’ll know when it happens🙂
I struggled with Sune today and I have to say he’s not a quitter🙂 I think he found a dead vole in the ditch because I don’t think he had the time to find and kill one. I saw that he had something in his mouth and told him to spit it out, he refused so I opened his mouth and out fell that little vole. He was so quick that I didn’t have the chance to get rid of it before he took it again🙂🙂🙂
I tried to open up his mouth again and sort of shake it out of his mouth and he sort of locked it with his tongue🙂 We kept on struggling for over two minutes until he finally gave up🙂🙂🙂 I didn’t want to grab the dead rodent since some voles spreads the Vole fever, a nasty disease that can make us humans really sick even if few dies from it. It’s only the Forest vole that carries the disease but I really can’t see the difference between the different voles. Well the Water vole (Ratty in “The Wind In The Willows) is easy because it can become so much bigger than most of the others 23cm long or around 9 inches.
We had come to the field where Nova is allowed to run around without a leash when I saw Hector behaving unusual. I called for him and he showed no interest at all in listening to me. Suddenly he reached for something on the ground and came running towards me. I shouted that he should spit it out and to my surprise he spat out a vole🙂 He then stopped and took it again but I think he could hear in my voice that if he didn’t spit it out again I would shove my hand down his throat and pull it up from his stomach! He spat it out again, took a look at it and came to me🙂🙂🙂
We haven’t done much else today but time has just flown away. I did sow the last cold needing seeds I had so far and I’ve baked a bread but that’s it. I would like to take a nap now but it’s too late, I wouldn’t wake up until twelve tonight and most probably not be able to fall asleep again if I did🙂 So I’ll make a pot of tea and see if there’s anything on tv worth wasting my time on.
