Sunday afternoon with Leen

Today Leen came visiting us. After a a joint walk (and swimming for me too) in the Broekpolder, we went home again. In the picture below you see Leen, the furry animal and myself waiting for the pack leader to serve some good meat of the barbecue.

In the evening we went to the Broekpolder again to play ball. I managed to get into the dirtiest water you can find there just when we were about to get back. To get my paws clean again we shortly went to another pool with much cleaner water. I should remember this trick to get the most out of this type of tours to the Broekpolder.

A Saturday with Bram

Today Bram was with us the whole day. His pack went for a day on a boat and of course we didn’t complain for a moment when we were asked if he could stay with us.

As expected it would be a very hot day again, so we quickly decided all tours made today should be near water. After having played for quite a while in the back garden we went for the Broekpolder. It wasn’t too busy so we made about two rounds around the lake. To be more precise: the pack leader did, me and Bram were in the water most of the time.

After that Bram and I spent some time alone after I sent the pack leader for some errands at the butcher at the end of the street. The rest of the afternoon we spent playing in the garden. At the end of the afternoon grandma and dad came for a visit too and joined us for a second tour to another part of the Broekpolder and diner. Bram and I were more than helpful during and after diner to save the dishwasher some work.

What a great day, Bram! If you’d like to stay another weekend with us, just let us know!


Although I scored top marks at my training classes for being such an obedient dog, I totally ignored the pack leader yesterday and stayed in the water for more than 20 minutes. Today we went for a swim again. Personally, I prefer some decent UK weather instead of this madness.


Nieuwland Park on Saturday

I went for a walk this afternoon in the Nieuwland Park together with our pack leader, After walking along the motorway for a while I met some other dogs: a flat nosed boxer and a small terrier. After having overcome some hostilities to and fro we did seem to like each other and walked for a while. Upon having left them behind at the pool I met a beautiful Collie – Noa – ย and I played and swam with her for quite a while.

But all good things come to an end and I had to assist the pack leader with serious business: visiting the mall to purchase enough meat and poultry to survive next week.


I’ve won a giant meatball! :-)

Our local butcher – Culinaire Slagerij Wapenaar in Vlaardingen – had a great promotional prize draw. Upon sending in a selfie in front of their marketing signs, that were put up all around the village for a week, a giant meatball and an interesting book about meatballs could be won. Of course I sent in my photo and guess what? I’ve won!

October 13th

Great day again with Bo. On our way to the park we played around a bit while both having the lead, after some twists and turns we were glued together like Siamese twins and the pack leader had a challenge to untangle dogs and leads again ๐Ÿ˜‰

The vet

I already had a gut feeling yesterday evening that something was going to be happening. I didn’t get any treats for my excellent and obedient behaviour – as always ๐Ÿ˜‰ – during the late night walk and this morning I didn’t get any food and thought it to be a strange time of the day to go for a ride with the car.

Anyway: a few hours later I felt a bit drowsy and drunk and was surrounded by people in white coats. I immediately called for help and did not stop until one of the pack leaders arrived to pick me up.

I still have the feeling something went missing during the last few hours I cannot remember.

Another day with Bo :-)

Today I went for a nice walk with Bo again. Afterwards I stayed for a while at Bo’s place. Finally at home I desperately needed a good nap, I didn’t even notice that one of the pack leaders was home again at the end of the afternoon!
