Cats do rule you. That's the amazing thing. They don't require as much attention as dogs but if treated right give you love back.

I love dogs, but cats are the best pets. Ray is correct lol

Cats are indeed the best pets.

My boxer died last year, it was horrible. In January came this little (now huge) terrorist. Her names' Charlotte and she's a light wheaten Rhodesian Ridgeback.

An ordinary morning (since the pups live here):
Normally I get up at 6:30 am, go downstairs, open the benches and let the pups go outside to do their business. In the meantime Dean gets up and I send him an app when the pups are ready. Dean gets their food ready, calls me and the pups inside and we all have our breakfast.
Earlier this week it was a not so ordinary morning…
I got up at 6:30, had to go to the bathroom, but decided to let the pups out first. Unfortunately, Jack had already done his business in the bench. I took the pups outside and waited for them to get ready to go back inside. After they were ready and I had cuddled and played with them, I sent Dean an app at 7:15 but… no reaction. At 7:30 I sent Dean another app, but… again no reaction. In the meantime the rooster started to crow, the cats began to mew and Jill started barking when she was startled by something. At 7:45 I gave Dean a call, but… no answer on the telephone. The pups were obviously hungry and weren’t interessted in playing anymore. I decided to leave the pups alone in the garden and to wake Dean up to ask him how much food I should give the pups. My sweet husband got up at once, cleaned out Jack’s bench and prepared their breakfast. Meanwhile I calmed the pups, fed the chickens and the cats. At 8:15 we finally all had our breakfast and at 8:30 I could finally go to the bathroom myself!

Bam! An older woman fell off her chair, underneath Dean’s chair came an awful high pitched scream, dogs started barking… That’s how our first lesson at the puppy training started.

We left on time as the first car rides weren’t the best for Jack and Jill. The first time being taken away from their homes and the second time going to the vet. But fortunately they eagerly jumped into the car.

When we arrived at the field of the puppy course, we saw the other lesson had just ended and while they took a cup of coffee or tea, we took a chair and sat a little apart from the rest. Still, a big dog had seen us…

Just when one of the teachers said how quiet everyone was, the big dog pulled his line, the older lady who held his leach, fell backwards with her chair, the dog ran straight to Jack, who started screaming while he took a dive underneath Dean’s chair, Jill started to squeak in my arms, other dogs started to bark… it was like hell had broken loose... Luckily everything calmed down pretty quickly.

Although the lesson that had just finished was quite busy, our lesson just had four people with their dog. There was a woman who had a pup which was afraid of other dogs and there was a man who had a dog that liked to attack other dogs. So we were told to keep away from the others. With Jack who had just been traumatised as well and with Jill with too much energy, we seemed to be in for a bumpy ride of a lesson.

Fortunately Jack and Jill did anything to get some dog candy, so they went underneath bows, through a tunnel, walked through a little pool, searched for candy and got on a low stool with their paws. Meanwhile one of the teachers walked by with different kind of dogs to see how Jack and Jill would react. Despite Jack’s fear for the big dog, he was doing fine now. Although the start of this lesson had began with a lot of noise, everyone was quiet at the end. Even Jill was exhausted, had no energy left and lay at my feet. So all in all, it ended well.

Paying tribute to my beloved Dolly, our beautiful calico cat, on my Instagram account.
She was hit by a car this morning. She died in my arms.
Feeling so sad and tired right now.
