Today it´s raining so almost all photo´s comes from yesterdays morning walk.
So off to the vet we vent yesterday hoping it wouldn´t be anything to serious with Orvar. He jumped happily in to the car, even if he looked a bit suspicious when the other two weren´t allowed on this trip. He had his head outside the car window almost all the way but the closer we got the less often he wanted to do that. The worst thing he´s been through at the vet is a vaccine shot, so I really don´t understand why he gets so worried. Once I had a dog that always was extremely happy when she came to the vet and she had gone through a lot of surgery there.
Anyway, we went in and if I would have allowed it Orvar would have been sitting in my lap :-) But a 99 pound dog is a bit too heavy :-) We had to wait a bit because they were x-raying two other big dogs before us. They weren´t cooperative at all so they had to use sedative on them. Orvar however we all thought would be no problems at all. He may not be the brightest star in the sky, but he normally does what he is expected to. Well we got him on the x-ray table without too much problem and we also got him to lie down. We also managed to start taking the x-ray. But it´s an old machine and it makes a lot of noise, not good when it comes to Orvar.
We did get a real good photo of his elbow, even if it was his shoulder we tried to x-ray :-) :-) :-) So we had to give him sedative too. But it turned out that it wasn´t anything seriously wrong with him after all. His shoulder had been dislocated and after a while located itself again. So now I have to stop him from playing to tough with his brother for a while, nothing more :-) But I don´t think I ever will be able to get him in to that vet again :-) :-) :-)
A very strange thing happened before we were going to the vet though. I was watching the European Athletics championship on TV when my phone rang. I had had the computer problems the day before and talked with a young man on Hewlett Packard that was a great help. So I´m sitting there and watching when he suddenly calls me up just to ask me if my computer still works fine!!!! Has that ever happened to You? Something like this has never happened to me before. I didn´t know that someone actually cared so much about their customers that they phoned back just to be certain that what they did worked and that I as a customer is satisfied with their job!
Bertil was already out somewhere when we started our walk, but he met up with us half way home.
Today we met our neighbours the Cattles. Very friendly even if my dogs were quite visible.
At the moment the computer worked fine and I thanked him so much for all help and that he actually cared. Unfortunally it all started again when we came home from the vet. This time however nothing bad happened, it only started to make an inconsistency control again. So I phoned Hewlett-Packard again and then they helped me to program my computer not to do so again. It seems there´s a programming problem in Window (Is anyone surprised by that??? Next time I have to buy a Mac!!! I´ll just have to start saving now because they are a bit expensive). So now I do hope my computer stays calm for a while :-)
The first flower to open up on my pelargonium (geranium) P.Australe. I can´t understnad why this one isn´t more popular. Gets lots opf flowers and flowers for a very long time.
Another of my Pelargoniums, but I can´t for my life remember its name.
Morning dew on my Iliamna.
By the way! I tried to use Safari for PC instead of explorer on my computer but whenever I typed the letter @ I jumped back to the start site on internet :-) :-) :-) It´s a bit hard to write mail addresses if I can´t use that letter :-) :-) :-) So if anyone of You readers knows a way round this problem please tell me! Now it´s time for a pot of tea and then the championships on TV again.
Have a great day now!
