Belgium Won the Bronze

I rooted for Belgium in the broze game of the World Cup today. My paternal grandfather was from Belgium, so I feel some kinship with the Belgians.

Daniel rooted for England. He says England has been his second favourite national team ever since he was young.

It was a good game. Both teams played well. In the end, however, the goals scored is what counts. Belgium won fairly, 2-0. I am happy they did.

This is the first time Belgium has won medals in the football World Cup, after having been fourth in 1986. England won gold in 1966, and was fourth in 1990. This is, thus, a shared second best result for the English team. It has been a good World Cup for both teams, despite the disappointment of not going all the way to the final.

Cords

There is someone who chews on electric cords, the cords we use to charge the batteries in Ipads and Iphones. We are not sure who it is. I can understand the appeal, because electric cords have a fine texture, as if they were made to chew upon. Still, it destroys the cords. Paula and Daniel have had to buy new cords more than once, and it is still not always enough. It is so annoying when your battery is not charged enough. I hope the culprit will soon stop this destruktive behaviour.

Open Eyes

Hello, Orange here!

My pups have opendoc up their eyes now. They can see, and they can hear.

It is two week now, since they were born. Ihave enjoyed every minute since. Giving birth is not always easy, but taking care of lovely newly born pups is. They are so cute, and they are mine. I love them so much.

It will be interesting to see how the personalities of these pups will develop.

Draught and Flood

We may have a draught in Sweden and neighbours in Europe, but in Japan they have had floods after heavy rainfalls. At least 179 humans are dess and about 70 are missing. The casualties among dogs are not reported. The floods have, thus, been much worse than our draught. I have not heard of any casualties due to the draught. I hope for more rain in Sweden, and less in Japan. It is a shame we cannot import any weather.

France Beat Belgium

I hoped Belgium would win the semi final versus France. You may know my paternal grandfather was from Belgium, so I feel for this country. However, France won, 1-0. It was a well played game, but not very exciting, I would have liked to see more goals. Very well, now I hope England will win the gold and Belgium the bronze.

The Ipad

I often borrow Daniel's Ipad to write my blog posts. Lately, however, Paula has started to borrow it. Paula has always been a little less interested in helping me with my blog than Daniel has been. When she borrows the Ipad, I have to use the computer or a mobile telephone. It is not as fun. On the other paw, it gave me the idea for this blog post. You can always find inspiration in the small, slightly annoying details of life. This is good.

Vegetables

Hello, Orange here!

Some of the food in my bowl tonight were vegetables. These are supposed to be healthy. It is just that they are not that tasty. It is nice that I do get enough food of tastier kinds.

Sweden Is Out

Sweden lost its quarter final to England. It was not that the Swedes were bad, but the English were significantly better. England won fairly, 2-0.

A quarter final is a good result for Sweden. It is better than reasonable expectations. Now we hope that England goes on to win the whole tournament. If Sweden lost to the team that would eventually win the whole thing, it makes the Swedish effort look even better.
