Eddie 11 years

Eddie turned 11 years on April 10th. He had a nice walk in the forest rolling in the fresh snow and enjoying the sunshine. For dinner raw meat cake. What a treat!

Life goes on

Dogs and pets in gereral, are time well spent.


At the end all that matters is love.

RIP Alfie

Living with two elder gentlemen and about being grateful of each day.

Back to normal

Back to normal hopefully. The season is finally over and hopefully there won't be one after the other. Some gates were broken during the season by the boys and it's time to fix them now.

That time of the year

Hanie has started her season and most likely Minnie will follow soon. They boys need to wear panties inside the house.

Kiia the cat

RIP Hilla

Rest in peace Hilla, 2005 - 2017

Alfie’s ears

About a month ago I took Alfie for a vet because his ears were quite sore & waxy. We had check up two week after that but the infection was still there, so we continued his ear drops for another two weeks. Today we had the second check up and his ears were much better.
