These weeks I’m checking more frequently “dogs for sale” and ‘dogs to rehome’ advertisements. By scanning the most popular sites you can discover that the ads have their own secret language. I think now I have enough experience to decode them and share the hidden contents with you.
Here are some expressions with a bit of help how to read them.
‘Due to family reasons’
My husband said or the dog or him
I can’t sleep at night because the dog covers the bed with random objects and barks to my face
‘Only to a flat’
It’s a fence climbing champion
‘Stufersire terrier for sale’
I don’t have the slightest idea what do I have in the backyard, but I need the money
‘The mother is a border collie and the puppy looks like his mother’
At least five males were in our garden in those two weeks and I have no idea which one was the winner
‘With unique coat color’
It’s black and tan with brindle spots on his back
Yesterday Skyhoundz published a new exclusive disc policy. It explains that from 1st of July on Skyhoundz competitions you can use Hyperflite products, as Hyperflite is the main sponsor of these events. You can see the details here. Since yesterday I received some messages and phone calls and I read some comments about this decision, so I think it’s easier to explain here what do I think about this. I can understand that it was important from the point of view of Hyperflite, and I don’ t agree with those that see it as a tragedy.
My favorites were those who complained that from now on they have less chances to win, because they can throw only with other disc types. I have the privilege to know some World Champions personally. They can play with anything (including plates, cap of Pringles chips, and any other flat and round objects). If your success depends on the brand sticker of your disc, maybe you need to practice more.
One day my black and white cat Nyápic arrived home with one eye inflamated. I called Dalma, our brand new vet immediately. It was a typical conversation: ˜do you work today?“No, so you can come anytime`. After a quick checkup we received some anti-inflamatory and good advices. I was not really happy: this cat is a huge one, about 8 kilos, and to put drops into his eyes twice a day was a real challenge.
This happenned on Friday. Sunday night Dalma wrote me on chat asking about the cat. Until that I received some nice bleeding scratches already, but his eye was the same. So we agreed that we’ll need an X-ray.
Next morning everything became visible. Nyápic had an abscess in his mouth, and the inflamation had an effect on his eye. He was operated, and we received a lot of antibiotics in capsules. I hope you can feel my pain: drops and capsules, twice a day…
Today our new vet was born! A huge congrats to my BFF, who was a witness a lot of trouble and joy of my life for many years with endless patience and humor. From now on she has a brand new role as she will take care of the health of our four-legged and no-legged family members.
I know better than anyone else all of the doubts, fears, pain, loss and fights behind these years, and I’m sure it was worth. LÖB, I can’t explain how proud am I! I know you did it not just for yourself… I don’t know where is he now, but I’m sure that he is happy and proud too as his dreams came true today.
