Back home. After a long nap (Conferences are taxing. The better thay are, the more tired you’ll be…) and a dip in the pool, I settled down again.
Whenever I’m gone for more than a day, Merlin does not leave my side for few days. These eyes followed me everywhere.
Merlin (I have a feeling I’ll have a lot of blog posts about him) is a hyperactive little pup. Some time ago, I bought him kids crawling tunnel, and taught him to jump and crawl. Maybe someday, we get around to actually getting some real agility equipment.
Merlin – our pup – has one obsession: chasing birds. Initially it was quite an extreme sport, as he was merely 9 weeks old when he discovered the joy of chasing hadedas (a type of large ibis). As it was, a large hadeda was easily 2-3 x bigger than he was…
As he is now 1-year old (and a few kg heavier), I am no longer worried a hadeda will carry him off somewhere. So I let him chase. It keeps him fit – and it keeps hadedas away from our yard, which is a big benefit in itself
