It is hot today, Scandinavian hot that is 🙂 29,4C (84,9F) and it keeps getting warmer. It is the last day of this heat wave and even if I have loved to finally getting real summer during a vacation (very rare) I still won’t complain about the cooler and possible wetter weather we’ll get instead. This isn’t good for an eight weeks old puppy and Even Nova seems to think it is a bit much now. I just had to close the kitchen door on the south side of the cottage because the heat was just rolling in.
I left the dogs alone in the cottage for the first time this morning, well the first time with Albin here. I never like to do that when I have a new puppy in the home but I really needed to go to the grocery store. Sune is very, very slowly falling for Albin’s charm but it is still a bit to go. I think he will like him better the day that Albin is fast enough to chase him through the garden. He tried to do that this morning and Sune really liked it even if Albin had no chance what so ever to follow him 🙂
There was no use in worrying things would go wrong, they were all waiting by the entrance door and Albin was sleeping so hard he barely noticed me opening the door 🙂 I must go out to the dog yard and clean out all the Himalayan Impatiens plants before I can try him there. It is a jungle right now so not even Orvar would have been able to walk around there 🙂 I also need to clean the garage since they now see it as a natural indoor part of the dog yard 🙂 Nova and Sune have really made a mess in there and I need to see that there’s nothing Albin might want to try and eat 🙂
We almost had thunder here yesterday afternoon, I could hear the rumble for several hours but it never reached us. So we went out for a walk when it had stopped and almost made it home before the sky opened up. It sure was thunder showers but without the thunder 🙂 Once again the old stable saved up but I had to pick up Albin and run the last hundred meters (much the same in yards) 🙂 We stood there for twenty minutes until it calmed down so much that we could continue home. I was a bit worried since I had two windows open and the kitchen door 🙂 Luckily enough the rain come from a direction so it only hit the outside of those open windows and the door so no water came in to the cottage.
The temperature dropped 10 degrees centigrade or twenty degrees fahrenheit during the shower and it stayed that way until we went to bed. The morning was soo cool and nice, too bad I slept until after 5am because it looked like it had been a foggy morning. Albin walked unleashed and was never further away than 10cm (four inches) from me unless I tricked him so I could get a photo 🙂 I will leash him to the older dogs again the day I notice that he thinks the wildlife is interesting.
It is time for something cold to drink and perhaps a sandwich or two. All the animals are sleeping but as soon as they hear me open the refrigerator they’ll wake up and stand by my side 🙂
Have a great day!
