Storm, thunder and impressive lightning shows has been on going since early last night. The house was shaking and I was outside photographing the event and got a few lightning photos, it was amazing! I thought Monti would be a little scared but, he is not loosing sleep over some bad weather. I tried to get some hugs and kisses but, he just returned to his blanket, rolled into a ball and fell a sleep. I swear he is like a old man in a dog suit, can’t miss sleep or dinner. I will try to join him in dreamland, listening to rain and thunder in bed is one of the best sounds there is.
It is so hot here in my little town and I have not had any desire to put in any pictures from our trips to the beach so I present to you snorkmaiden from moomin, my favorite show as a kid and as a grown up. Today me and Monti went to the forest and I put him on his long leash, I did not go to the beach today because variation is good for dogs too. In the forest there was flowers in all kinds if yellow and purple, a bug tried to land on my red sweaty face. I like to walk in the forest, the trees give shade and the smells are wonderful.
I did not only make a post to show you the lovely snorkmaiden and tell you about the trip to the forest, yesterday something great happened. Monti´s claws have always been a problem because he never wants me to cut them, Stig has to hold him and he screams and goes all hysterical when we try to trim them. Sometimes we only get to cut one or two a day. Yesterday I stood over him with my trimmer and lifted his foot up, I think he likes it better when he can stand. I made shure he couldn’t run and I clipped the first claw, Stig made dinner in the kitchen so Monti could not resist standing there. I let him take a little break before I continued on the other paw and before you know it his front paws looked nice and trimmed. I was so happy, I have not been able to do this by my self since Monti was a puppy. I did cut a nerve once and I am shure he remembers so I am super careful, I am just so happy we don´t need to start using the vet for nail trims.
Look what me and Monti found in the garden today, two huge snails who was kissing. I think he disturbed them as he put his big nose right in their face, I think the snails quickly went back to what they where doing. It´s great to have a garden and a big house for Monti to live in, I will also show you the local beach me and Monti has been enjoying the last few days before the rain came.
First walk in a while with me. I have been sick with the flu so Monti’s dad has walked him since I have been as productive as a jellyfish. Today I went into the forest and monti loves it! It’s where he gets his perfume! Rolling on the ground in all kinds of smells. I think thats Why he hates to shower, all that muskyness gone. It was great going outside today, the sun is up and the bumblebees are all over. It feels great!
I forgot to share the snow that came early in december. We where all so happy, christmas with snow! The joy would not last, now all the snow is gone because of rain and warm temperature. I know monti loved the snow 😦 I want it to come back, it’s not fun going on walks when there is a hole in the sky.
But, I will not bitch about it anymore! Christmas is almost here and I am soo excited. Monti’s third christmas. He is getting some nice presents 🙂
