Hello, Karstuhl here!

With my pups, I reside in the bathroom. It is nice to ave a door shut towards the other dogs. I like them, but I do not trust anyone of them with the care of by pups.

Living in the bathroom does not make me take more baths than I usually do. I am not fond of bathing and the excellent coat of Shibas does not need many baths.

There is also another factor to consider, before taking a bath. The Swedish wird for bath is "bad". This gives you a hint that having a bath is a bad thing, doesn't it?

There are often more important things to do than taking a bath, such as eating, drinking, going on walks, resting, sleeping, playing, etc. In short there are good reasons not to take manyaths, not even when living in the bathroom.

I do not believe much in the benefits of robots. There are some jobs that they can do, however, that nobody else should have to do. At the wrecked nuclear power plant Fukushima in Japan, robots are cleaning up the debris. This is good, it means no living thing have to be affected by the high radiation levels. The Japanese are good at manufacturing advanced technology, like robots. This is advantageous now, when robots are really needed. No dogs or himans need to be affected by the radiation, which is good.

Paula has purchased a new hair cutter. She tried it on the Poodles today. They became very fine in no time. As Paula put it: this was the best hair cutter ever, well worth the money.

I am glad Shibas never have to get oir coats trimmed,

Hello, Karstuhl here!

Daniel cleans the floors more often than usually these days, here in the bathroom where I have my pups, and in the guest room, where Karen and her pups are. The floor in the guest room needs to be cleaned more often. It is no surprise to me, that my pups are doing better than Karen's pups.

Soon to be humans of one of the current pups here were visiting us today. Paula and Daniel served coffee and cake. I like cake, and I got to taste a little. It was a very good cake. When visits result in me getting to try cake, I am all for it. I would like to jave more visits like this.

Our Toy Poodle friend Laila always has problems with her ears. She has narrow ear canals and a lot of hair in them. This causes dirt to accumulate, if nothing is done to take the dirt away. In the dirt, bacteria and fungus may thrive, if nothing is done. Laila does not like it, bit Daniel often cleans her ears before we go to bed at night. I am glad Shibas never have problems like this.

Is Dad Back, in a Way?

In the current litter that my daughter Polly has, the male pup looks similar to Dad in this age. I could not tell myself, not having known Dad when he was a pup, but Paula is quite certain, and Daniel agrees. If this pup grows up to be a copy of Dad, I would be very happy. I loved Dad. He always took very good care of me. I will take very good care of Polly's pup, to the extent I can. Life is full of hope right now.
