Cutting Hair

My Poodle friends Laila and Momoko need to have their hair cut once in a while. They do not like it, and it does look uncomfortable. I am glad I shed my coat instead. Sometimes, I guess our humans are not happy when we shed coats, but this is because they do not like the shed coat hairs lying around. When they cut hair of the Poodles, some of it end up lying around too. I guess there may be advantages and disadvantages both with shedding and having to cut coats.

Not in Full Health

Daniel went to the west coast today, alone. His father is there, and not feeling well, admitted to the local human hospital. Daniel's brother is there as well, but Daniel wanted to help. It seems like things are not very bad, but we will know more after some tests tomorrow.

I fully understand Daniel's concern. I have lost both of my parents. It is sad and nothing i wish for anybody, though it is bound to happen. We all hope for a full recovery.

Lawn Mower

Daniel mowed the lawn today. He was, however, angry with the lawn mower, which does not work properly. It is not an old lawn mower, but it is still not fully functional.

I can understand that Daniel is not happy. I am not, either. We need a working lawn mower, because high grass is only good for ticks. Ticks climb high on the straws of grass and jump over to us dogs. They are bad little creatures. With a well mowed lawn, we get fewer ticks.

Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Tomorrow is the Azerbaijan GP in Formula 1. It is a race in Baku, the capital of this western Asian country.

The race at this circuit last year was called the European GP. I never really understood why. Azerbaijan might have a corner of the country which formally can claim to be part of Europe, but Baku is in Asia. The former Grand Prix races of San Marino and Luxemburg were held outside of these countries, but this is understandable since the countries are so small and do not have race tracks fit for a Formula 1 race. Europe, however, have many race tracks fit for Formula 1. It is better this year, when the race in Baku is called the Azerbaijan GP.

Midsummer Eve

It is Midsummer Eve. We always celebrate this in Sweden. This Midsummer Eve, Paula and Daniel were supposed to go away for a while. Paula did not really feel well, so she considered staying at home instead. Eventually, they did go away. They were not gone for long. It is not that I wish that Paula will feel sick, but I would still have preferred it if she would have stayed at home. We had a nice Midsummer Eve anyway.

I wish all of my readers a happy Midsummer!

Fish Pate

Paula cooked some fish pate tonight. I like fish pate. There was none of it for anybody to eat today, though. Paula made it for tomorrow, when it is time to celebrate midsummer. I wish we would have celebrated tonight, it smelled really tasty.

Flowers

Hello, Karstuhl here!

There are a lot of flowers in our garden at this time of the year.

Daniel likes the flowers. He finds them beautiful. Paula is more indifferent.

I do not care much about flowers. To me, they are just a display of reproductive organs for plants. It is like me, when I am in heat, and give the males part of my scent and tease them. I would rather see a steak than a flower, a steak is just as beautiful, smells just as great, but you can also eat it and get a satisfied stomach.

However, plants would look more dull without the flowers, so there is this advantage.
