She’s not running up the stairs but she’s better :-)
Nova is much better today, yesterday she barely could walk from the dog house to the cottage and stairs were just impossible. This morning we walked to the bog without any bigger problems 🙂 This must have been the first time she didn’t pull the leash at all, in fact for once the pace was rather nice 🙂 Stairs are still a bit tricky though but she takes her time to get where she wants to go.
But I’ll call my vet to get an appointment next week just to be sure her back is ok, better to be safe than sorry. If somethings wrong with her back we’ll get a chance to keep it as good as possible and make sure we’ll know how to stop this from happening again. Another good thing this morning is that her farting has improved as well, I’ve had the kitchen door open all morning because the cottage reeked awful to be honest 🙂 🙂 🙂
The morning was pretty chilly but sunny and as soon as the sun rose so did the fog, it only stayed for a short time but long enough to get some nice photographs from the bog. The black grouse roosters were still out there trying to impress the hens and from a distance we could hear wild hogs warning for something, perhaps it was us they warned for even if we were walking very quietly. Sounds travels long distances when everything else is quiet.
I found lots of badger fur on the ground but couldn’t see any tracks from a fight, so I guess it just scratched the old winter fur off. I was hoping we would meet the old guy today but at least it seems he’s still living. I’m not sure how Sune would react when meeting a badger again, last summer he jumped up on a badgers back and all hell broke loose 🙂 🙂 🙂 The badger naturally got surprised and growled some, Sune got so scared that he ran hoe and Nova tried to attack the poor badger that wanted nothing else that to get away 🙂 🙂 🙂
European Badgers are very friendly if they aren’t surprised or cornered and this one was both 🙂 But he tried to run away and got tangled in Novas leash and that stopped her from actually doing anything to him 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’m not sure if that was the same badger that patrol my garden every night, they do live in groups of one male and a couple of females and all the young ones of course. I really should buy one of those wild life cameras one puts out where animals walk.
I went by friends on my way home yesterday and got some plants with me home. They live just a few miles away from me (birds way that is) but still the climate is so different. I like to say that I live in Siberia while they live by the mediterranean 🙂 I love living here and won’t move until I’m dead but sometimes I wish the climate was a bit warmer here 🙂 But any plant surviving here in my garden will survive anything 🙂
Nova is sleeping in the sunlight on the kitchen stairs, Sune on the ground just in front of the stairs and I think both Hector and Orvar is walking around in the garden. I think I’ll bring my cup of tea and join them for a while 🙂
Have a great day!
