Izzy really?

And now for a few more pictures of Izzy, made in December and January. By the way, we’re all getting pretty used to each other.

Dogs and such

We’ve been quiet for a while: typical for an introvert. But let’s catch up. Our dog, Mik, died in April, but you already knew that. For the past few months we’ve been looking for a new housemate, but Cockers are so popular, they’re gone before they even get posted on a site. Mission Pawsible sent […]

Goodbye Mik, We loved you!

Mik in the park in March.

Mik is back!

Everybody limps at our house. Renske has a case of ischias, Ray’s antibiotics are slowly taking effect and Mik has his broken leg in a soft cast. He also has a pin in the bone that’s broken. The soft cast comes off in three weeks, he should be healed in six. Ray is switching general […]

Dr. Mik

Our dog is quite intelligent. A bit far-sighted, but smart. Can you say the same?

Mik is Back!

Sokje! The pins got taken out of Mik’s left back paw today. Operation a sucess. We call him Limpy Wimpy or Socks for the time being. But soon enough Renske will be taking him to doggie-lessons and we’ll be calling him Super Dog. (I hope.)

Fun in the snow

We’ve had some snow lately. Renske wasn’t able to take pictures all by herself yesterday: she came up a few hands short. Today the snow started melting. Which meant less winter wonderland photographs. But the melting also meant that we could make snowballs. A nice doggy treat for Mik.
