I´m running late again as always on a Monday. Today was also the first day it didn´t rain for over a week so I hade to mowe the lawn. It´s not one of my favourite things to do, but it didn´t take that much time after all. Now I don´t have to do it for another week at least :-)

I think I´ll have to take Orvar to the vet in a day or so. He´s limping rather bad on his right front leg today. I have no idea why, but most probably he and his brother has played as wild as they always do. He tries to hide it by running all the time, it seemes to hurt less then. But as soon as he walks it´s impossible to miss it.  It´s his shoulder aching, maybe it´s dis located? If he´s not better tomorrow morning I call the vet from work.

It´s time to make a cup of tea, look in tio Your blogs and then read my favourite comic magasine :-)
Have a great day now!

Poor Orvar. I hope he gets on the mend. Calling the Vet is a good idea. He may need a pain killer to help him recover. Nice pictures today Christer.

Hi Z&M!
I was thinking the same, a pain killer to ease the pain. He´s not better yet so I doubt he´ll be it tomorrow morning.

But usually it´s him making his brother Hector limping, perhaps he can learn something from this. Nah! not Orvar :-) :-) :-)
Have a great day now!

Hej Christer!

Hoppas att det ordnar sig för Orvar! Stackarn!
Själv är jag så glad att både Wille och Maija är friska.

Det märkliga med mina nya familjemedlemmar är att de går inte in i skogen så som mina katter har alltid gjort och så gör naturligtvis även grannens katter.
Observera att skogen finns bakom staketet som inte hindrar en katt bara rådjur och älgar.

Vad härligt det var att efter en veckas regnande nu äntligen ha fått uppehåll och sol!

oh no...poor orvar...too bad these guys can't tell us what is wrong. teddy runs so hard that sometimes she sprains a toe or ankle and limps very badly for a few days. if i ask if she has a boo-boo she immediately walks perfectly. she hates it when i try to take care of her boo-boos.

Poor Orvar...definitely see the vet if it lasts another day...hate when pets hurt and can't, what is your favorite comic?...

Tjänare Anja!
Efter en natts vila haltar han lite bättre, men inte såpass mycket som jag vill. Får ringa veterinären idag. Problemet är ju att komma fram på deras korta telefontid bara.

Lustigt med katterna, men de vet ju var det är tryggast så de är nog ganska kloka som håller sig hemma!

Synd bara att jag måste vara inomhus mesta tiden av dagen. Men snart kommer semestern :-) :-)
Ha det gott!

Glad the rain stopped so you could get outdoors for more lovely photos. We could sure use a little rain here, if you can send some then we can send some heat and humidity which mosquitoes really like! I agree with you on the grass cutting. We don't lok forward to doing it either, but it's nice when it's all done and we can take cool showers afterwards. Too bad that pets can't tell us what's wrong when they are hurting.

Hi Joyce!
Yes it would be so much easier if they just could tell us. He is walking a bit better this morning, but not good enough so I´ll try to reach the vet during today.

They truly are masters og hiding that they aren´t a 100% :-) Orvar often splits a claw or two, but it never bothers him at all. Otherwise he´s the healthiest dog I know.
Have a great day now!

Hi Sharlene!
I´m calling the vet later today. Orvar walks a bit better, but not good enough.

My favourite comic is a norwegian one called Pondus. I don´t think it´s translated to english yet though. It has become the most popular comic here in Scandinavia lately.
Have a great day now!

Hi Beatrice!
I´d love to send some rain to You and would welcome some heat. But You can keep the humidity :-) :-) :-)

Yes, the shower after is sooo nice :-)

I´ll phone the vet later today. It would be so much easier if they could tell us what had happened though :-) :-)
Have a great day now!

Stackars Orvar, hoppas han mår bättre idag!
Penny var urdålig i förrgår - hon kräks, för konvulsioner, krampar och svimmar. Ser fruktansvärt ut, men ska inte vara livshotande - säger vetten. Men det tar ju på en 15,5-åring. Igår var hon dock pigg som en valp igen!

Tjänare Susie!
Tyvärr var det inte någon större skilnad med honom idag, så tid är beställd hos veterinären.

Man blir ju alltid orolig när ens hund kommit upp i ålder! 15,5 år! Inte dåligt! Erna är ju bara valpen i jämförelse, 13,2 är hon :-)
Hoppas Penny slipper mer sådant nu!
Ha det gott!
