This afternoon we went to the petshop of the human pup. When we arrived an accident did happen not long before! 😦
A little critter wanted to cross the drive way to the parking and… got crashed. Dad saw it when we arrived… and told us.
I got out of the car as quick as I could and we went to see it… I sniffed but I could not help the poor thing, it already was gone to the Bridge! 😦
We went inside to tell the human pup and to get my dinners! Mum said I soon forgot the little critter… 😉
… or almost… maybe I exaggerate a tiny bit… 😉 🙂
Listen! After dinner me and mum went for our walk! That’s normal. We walk near the river Scheldt when it is not dark yet. That’s normal too.
But then… that was not normal! River Scheldt was on the road! No red or black thing, no boots… Okay, back home: not normal at all!
But we went back with the red thing and boots on, and we tried to cross the river Scheldt on foot! 😉 No way… we were in the middle of it! We really had to turn back! 😦
We went to see the part where were the letters and the ducks! Home of the ducks all under water! Duck refugees were floating on the river! 😦 Poor guys! Actuality everywhere… 😦
But this duck-guys and duck-girls can go back when tide is low again… For the poor humans in other countries? That’s another story, mum says!
We got home safe and dry, we! ❤
New in town yes, but already a few months! This new one is now almost 9 months old and we already saw him many times on our evening walk! But mum never had the red thing or the black thing ready! ggggrrrrrr. 😦
I understand what the little one says but mum does not understand the dad too well: he speaks a lot of Russian and a bit of Dutch. In the end they manage with the help of some English and some French! Have to say doggie language is much more universal! 😉
So yes, yesterday, she had the black talking thing in her pocket! This wire fox terrier cutie just went to the groomer’s for the first time in his life and was a bit shy. Me and mum told that was not necessary! Mum is so fond of wire foxies, almost as fond as of airedale ladies! And that means something! 😉
But so am I! ❤ Love this little one! ❤
Ooooh, I really want to tell this to the whole world! I did something very new! I’v been in the car, on trams, on trains, in busses, on metros… I was thinking I knew everything! So: no!!! 😦
Today me and mum had a splendid idea and we only could have it today! It is not possible otherwise! Now you are curious, aren’t you? 😉
Today it was the day of the Antwerp Marathon and Antwerp 10 miles! This morning when we came from the huge dogpark we had to watch the Maraton: could not cross the street to go home! It was raining though! 😦
This afternoon, for the afternoon walk: we went to take a look at the 10 miles. But that’s not what we did! We crossed the river Scheldt on a boat! I’ve never been on a boat before! How come? Normally there are no ferries on the river Scheldt. But today about thirty at fourty thousand humans had to cross to come to the left bank for the miles. And tunnels were not available: cars forbidden, today tunnels were for the runner’s. So, there were ferries! Not far from our home! 🙂
Mum said: come on girl, to the city it’s not too crowded, let’s go! Enjoy your maiden trip!
I did! 🙂 ❤ I was the star on the boat! 😉
Tonight everything is dirty and services are cleaning with full power… 😦
Do we start here mum?
We go to the ferry
Nice views for mum, not for me: doggies have to lay down on boats! 😉
You see the big ferry and how many humans want to go running the 10 miles?
Seen from the kitchen window: the pistol that makes the papers fly
These are the papers tonight…
Lots of cleaning to do!!!
Well, today I was very proud of myself and not only because mum was proud of me. No, I just was very proud about myself and my manners and our citytrip! 🙂
We went in town, in the old city with all the shops. Of course with my new collar and leash! 😉 Mum thought it started badly! Not me! We went to the metro. When we got on it, a little doggie started barking 8 rows before us, a JRTerrier, mum says. He kept barking all the way. I lay down, looked around and really got bored of all the barking, as did the humans. Little one was stubborn and a disgrace to the terriers! So I produced just one low bark (mum was displeased!) but… the barking of the little one stopped! Had to show who is the king of the terriers and he understood! Humans all pleased with my help! ❤ Mum had a good laugh – afterwards of course!
Then we went to the shop with the cotton and colours and stuff. Mum calls it Veritas. The kind lady was there! The one who helped to choose the airedale colours a time ago. She recognised me: of course she did! 😉 Mum asked if we could fototoot! Oh yes, of course, she said! Take your time! We did! I wanted to be alone in the pics without all the buying humans… my storypage is about doggies, not humans, you see! 😉 Although there are exceptions, I admit! 😉
And then we came home on foot! All the way! A long way! Long walk and long fototoot! Explanations are with the pics! Although I have to say it myself: I was a very good fototootmodel today! I’m proud of myself! 😉
Waiting for metro to come
Metro in the wrong direction!
I know, mum, that’s the shop!
More colours to see!
Yes, I wait while you choose!
This takes time… 🙂
Yes, I wait!
Okay mum, these were the colours…
City bikes… I don’t do that, neither does mum
Mum, go we have a look?
Wow! I’ve never been here before!
This is big and lots of gold?
Hey mum, that looks good! Can I have one? No???
This street is called Meir! At the end the big “Boerentoren”
Under here is the metro, mum, look!
Who does not know these two? My surname Bobbie comes from “him”… the dog of course!
Okay, we go to the tunnel! One good km to go before we are home! 🙂
Okay, mum… I understand we have a CopyKita in the home and pots with Kita’s and more of that stuff… but really: this is going too far! 😦
How on earth did you get the idea to get a cat in our household??? Oh, it is not for our house! Now, I hear you talking with some common sense! 🙂
Yes, I understand! I have to be friendly with this cat who’s name is “Half negen” (=half past eight) because it will leave soon… otherwise… 😉
In the end, I might like this Half Negen! ❤ Quite calm and friendly… Leaving? Are you sure?
Mum, look at this parcel: my name is on it! You see this? Yours too? So you are opening it? 😦
Too delicate for Kita-teeth to open? 😦 Why is my name on it, explain me that!
Okay, that’s what in it is for me but not to play with? Oh, let’s have a look! Oooooh, mum, look at that! A new collar! And leash! A short leash! Yes, yes, yes… we go in town!! Now, immediately! 😉 I want to show my new town-collar and town-leash to everybody! 🙂 ❤
What? Waiting till tomorrow? That’s idiot, mum. I want to go now! No??? 😦 You have to crochet to get it post tomorrow? Okay, I’ll be patient! 😉
Can I have a treat instead? 😉
When the weather is nice… strange things happen on the beach… When we go there in the morning, on the beach have appeared big mountains and digged rivers and … 🙂
Mum calls them sand castles. She says human puppies do that… My dogness, why don’t they just run and play, the human puppies? You don’t see a lady making those things. 😉
Anyway, I had to inspect them of course, all those castles! One was very special! ❤
Mum says it’s a labyrinth. Mum, what do you mean: a babyprint?
A labyrinth, Kita, a labyrinth!!!
Whatever! What is it? Oh, when you go in, you don’t get out easily? Oh, is it that special thing our library-friends of the Netherlands love so much! I’ll go in and inspect it! 🙂
Mum, I turn in circles… How do I get out? 😉
I just jump and walk over it… this is simple! 😉
