Big disillusion… shark is gone!

LastΒ saturday morning I walked around with a fish, on the beach! Remember? Appeared to be a shark! A catshark or dog fish. I was all thrilled when mum explained that to me! It’s a pity grandpa Lennox is not here anymore so I could bluff about it. I’m not the little one anymore! πŸ˜‰

On sunday morning we went back to the beach. From the moment mum got me off the leash, I ran like a rocket to the shark-place. I waited for mum and she saw it too: no shark on the beach… Maybe in the water? I took my chances and went for a look. I went all the way to a “beach-island”. There was no shark! 😦 I had a wet belly for nothing… Mum called me back, could not stay to search! 😦

Mum’s red thing did taktaktaktak…taktak… I picked the pics for a pics-story! πŸ˜‰

 

Bravo!!!!… We did support!

The Antwerp ten miles: part 3!

This afternoon we still were at the seaside: you remember: the Houdini-situation! But mum says we need the tv-typing-machine to support two of her colleagues! One of them is Fien’s mum! Fien is a doggiefriend.
So first I was sending a pic and an encouragement, before they left. And then I subscribed to get a message on the black talking box of mum to know what Fien’s mum was doing!

Fien’s mum did great! She run the ten miles (16 kms) in about 1 hour and 15 minutes: that’s what the black box said! I think I could not do it… and let’s not talk about my mum, she even wouldn’t think about it! πŸ˜‰

Congratulations, mum of Fien!Β 

PS You see me in the pics of the tv-typing-machine? πŸ˜‰

A prey, again!!!… And even more than a wet belly!

Raining! It’s raining. But me (when I have lots of curls) and my mum, we do not mind!Β We go out, before breakfast! πŸ˜‰ But the new red thing does mind, so mum said that the old blinking thing would accompany us! And that was a good idea. Today old blinking thing is my friend! πŸ˜‰ It worked and… i can show you something quite adventurous!

So we went out early this morning! πŸ™‚ ❀ Nobody, really nobody, on the beach! Except me and my mum! That is fun!!! I can run far, she does not call me every second! ❀
So, when I was far away, something came out of the sea with the upcoming tide. I start to know everything about tides, these days: at sea and at the river Scheldt! I was sniffing and mum came to have a look! Was proud about my prey! πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚
Mum said I could play but not eat it! So, I run a bit! Crazy mum, it is breakfast-time! Going to try and eat it, whatever she says! Ohohoh! 😦
End of the fun! 😦 Mum took my prey and threw it back in the sea! 😦
And me? I went after it! I completely forgot I do not like a wet belly! Did not find my prey! 😦 And then I realised my wet belly! 😦
No, mum, I’m not happy now, only will produce a half smile for your pic! πŸ˜‰

PS A detail for the animal-lovers we all are: fish was already dead when I found it!!!

PPSS A friend from facebook thaught us I played with a shark!!!Β http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small-spotted_catshark

 

 

 

 

Mum, mum! Look!… They followed us!

Today we did the tric of Houdini! We disappeared! At least, that’s what we were thinking…

What I mean? Off we went, to the seaside! But… mum, mum… look! They followed us! And they painted the big new houses (tents) in blue and red! And there is food too here! Mum, where is the beach and the sea? Is that gone too, like my little dogpark?

No, Kita, we go there!

Mum, at least there are no fences here! Okay, I’ll run my ten miles on the beach and you do your ladies walk for a few kilometers! Is that a deal! Mum is smiling! So am I! And I run, believe me! Mum made a video of my miles <3… and pics of our followers too! 😦

Mum, will we go to the blue big house tomorrow? And to the food? So that I can tell Monty, Winnie, Taffy and Molly about it? She says not yes, my mum, but she not no either! That might be a good sign! Anyhow! There is the beach and the sea! πŸ˜‰

 


 

 

Antwerp ten miles and marathon… part 2

Evening walk in our neighborhood. Mum is lucky to have me, that’s as clear as water! And she is lucky I have a good nose and I’m a good inspector. Without my nose we would have been completely lost this evening! Toilet-houses everywhere! Lots of new fences, streets are blocked! Red pedestrianlights for nothing because cars aren’t allowed anymore! My dogness! πŸ˜‰ Insane!

How come? ! Told you yesterday: next sunday 45 times 1000 humans come to run here in Antwerp. Ten miles or a marathon or the ladies run (5 kms) or the kids run. That has to be prepared! Two full weeks are necessary. Lot of men start at 8.00 in the morning and go on till it gets dark at night. What a job!!! Result? We hardly recognise our neighborhood! πŸ˜‰

But my friends will see in the pics that we think international in Antwerp! πŸ˜‰ Surely if you speak about food! Molly, Winnie, Monty and Taffy, you were very right about the food-business! But I think I cannot convince my mum… 😦
And as already shown: little dogpark is a disaster: it is called a village now. Near the dogpark there are even built ‘tribunes’ (bleacchers), that’s what mum calls the bizar things we saw.

Me? I was very happy to see that the huge dogpark was normal this morning!Β πŸ™‚Β I even chased some rabbits. ❀ And this evening I was very glad I got mum home safe! πŸ˜‰ And in between? Zzzzzzzzzzz…

Antwerp ten miles and marathon: great! BUT … :-(

My dogness, mum, look at this?!! Who on earth did this? What does she say? Antwerp ten miles and marathon? Mum, who are they? Why can they destroy our dogpark? Space? They need space? At the other side of the crossing, with the other white big house they newly made, is place enough! She does not disagree, my mum! πŸ˜‰ She can’t: it is just the truth! Can’t disagree with the truth! πŸ˜‰

What, no off leash this morning? Mum, tell me who I have to bark to explain that this is not fair! All my little friends who are too small for the huge dogpark, can’t play for more than a week! Poor friends! 😦

What? Ten miles is sports? Running? Hahaha, that’s not for you mum, you hate running! It is more for me! I’m the running one of the two of us! Don’t tell me they will run around in this white new things? Oh, it’s the end of the running and near our house is the start of the running? On our way home mum shows me the humans only can run in the fenced area! That’s an idea I like! Red fences for humans! hahahaha! πŸ˜‰
Well, I hope they enjoy their running and that my poor little friends can run again next week in a repaired dogpark!!!

What??? There will be 45.000 humans running! My dogness… Too crowdy for me mum! πŸ˜‰ Ha, no disagreement? Again? Nice morning! πŸ˜‰

Today? I visited my … tree-dogpark!

Where are we going? Me and dad and mum, we go in the car. I did not hear where we were going! Big surprise! But, mum, look here! This is my old tree-dogpark! Go we in? Yes, we do! Oh, no friends! That’s a pity… Mum, this is a small dogpark, it is not huge, isn’t it? Yes, it’s fine, but my huge dogpark is huger! πŸ˜‰

I start my inspection-tour. Everything is still there, but it changed a bit. Mum, my tree, look at this! It completely cracked! Have to inspect thisΒ thoroughly, mum, this is not really safe anymore. Yes, I’m used to it, but tree moves all the time, this is less fun than before. You can not run up and down anymore, you have to be very careful! And it is not as high as before! 😦 Mum, you take the red thing for pics so I can show my friends my old tree? πŸ™‚

And there, mum, fence did move! There is a real path behind now! And a new gate at the other side!! My dogness, when did that happen?!
No, mum, I’m a lady now, I will not get on the table! Don’t worry! πŸ™‚

When we came home, mum and dad got themselves an ice cream! And I? I got the very last little bit of it! Just look! Afterwards, well, I needed a nap! zzzzzz…..

Me and my… terrace-gardening-talents!

It’s spring here where I live. If you did not kow yet, you know it now… So I have to practice my terrace-gardening-skills. Yes, that’s one of my business too: terrace gardening.

This morning we got all ready, me and mum. And then we started. Terrace was still in wintermood. Had to inspect everything of course. πŸ˜‰ Took some time before we got to work at the real thing: the plants.

Blinking red thing did some work too to show you my skills! Mum thinks we did a good job! πŸ˜‰ This afternoon, we went to sit there for a while: then there is sunshine! Inspection again. Yes, everything is still okay, I still have my spot to chat with the neighbourlady of downstairs. ❀ Β 
I can go to my normal things: a toy! πŸ˜‰

 

Exhausted!… Just exhausted!

Holidays and nice weather! πŸ™‚
So we go to the huge dogpark every morning! Yesterday I met 8 month old Sara! She is only 8 months old, but my goodness, she is very strong! Already told mum I should go and follow karate-lessons to keep up with this new friend!Β 

Sara likes playing and running, and that’s what we did: for a very long time! Sand was flying all around usΒ and we did a lot of teeth-showing! We made a lot of noise too. In the end we were both exhausted.
Pics will show you everything!

On the way home, I always wanted to lay down to start my nap. No way, said my stubborn mum. But after the paw plunger-procedure and wash-cloth-procedure… That’s what I did all day and night! ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
