If a Dog were Your Teacher ...

If a dog were your teacher, you would learn things like this:

Whe somebody you love arrives home, you run to meet him/her
Never lose an opportunity to go out for a stroll
Allow yourself to experience the fresh air on your face
Show others when they are invading your territory
Take a nap in the middle of the day and a do good stretch before getting up
Run, jump and play everyday
Try to get along well with your neighbour and let people touch you
Don't bite when a simple snarl does the trick!
In hot days, stop and roll on the ground, drink a lot of liquid and lie under the shadow of a tree
When you feel happy, dance and shake all your body
It doesn't matter how many times you have been hurt, do not feel guilty...come back and make up again
Enjoy the pleasure of a long walk
Feed yourself dearly and with enthusiasm
Eat only enough
Be loyal
Do not pretend to be what you are not
and the most importrant of all...
When somebody is nervous or sad, stay silent, be close and show that you are there to comfort.
True friendship does not accept copies!

Spring Sun!

Finally sunny days, blue skies and warmer breezes have reached us! We can now go for long walks with the yorkies in the afternoon, after coming home from work. The day light time lasts long, allowing us these "luxuries" of free time.

Below are Mathea, Julia's friend and her doggie, Aila.

Aila loves to play with Birk and Lucy

Second dosage rabies vaccine

Today we have been to the vet for the doggie's second dosage of the rabies vaccine. First it was Lucy and while she was having her vaccine, we told Birk to wait sitted on the chair, which he did very nicely. See below. He is so obedient, our little boy!

Then, after both were vaccinated they got two important EU passports :)

We took the chance and talked to the vet about Birk's weight after the castration. Before being castrated he weighed 3.800kgs, now he weighs 4.700kgs :(
So, now Birk is officially on a "diet". I bought new light dog food for him from Hill's to help him out and we are also trying to exercise him lots.

Cozy moments

We all have cozy moments with our yorkies. They offer us some work, but also undeniable pleasures, love and coziness. In the end, it's worth all the extra work they represent.

The Cat

We left home to the take the doggies out for a run. Just in front of our house, I asked Chris to take a picture of me and Lucy, to show my new hair cut and colour.
We walked to a nearby fotball field and on the way there was a cute cat, which Lucy got interested in knowing a little more about. Birk was not near them at this point.

At the fotball field, I thought it would be a good idea to have another picture of me taken with both dogs this time. :)

Then, after a while, who comes right into where we were with the dogs? The cat! Birk sees it this time and runs after it! .

Lucy joins Birk in the chase and the cat runs for its life and climbs on the tree to get rid of Birk and Lucy!

Oh, what an adventurous day it has been!!
