Enjoying his new home

We have two dogs; the 11 years old boxer Ludo, and the papillon Noah (5). They differ not only in size but also in temperament. Ludo is jovial, social, playful and always in a good mood, Noah is more timid, and much more of a one person dog. He has chosen me as his shepherd – even if it was my daughters idea to bring him to our house. P1140532

When I first heard of Noah I thought I wouldn’t much care about such a tiny toy dog, but of course – it was love at first sight, as it so often is with puppies.P1140531
 As you can see from the pictures he has really outgrown his favorite bed … But since he loves hanging around where I am, he just makes himself comfortable the best he can – .

  1. a few months ago my dog Simba died, he loved to lay on his back just like your Noah. i was used to big dogs (my favorites: New Foundlanders and Berner Sennen dogs) but this tiny guy stole my heart the moment we locked eyes.
    it’s wonderful, these relationships with dogs. sometimes i have to remind myself these creatures actually are dogs — i treat them the way i treat people. i think i treat dogs better then people. oops..

    the strange thing is that i feel the same way about cats. everybody keeps telling me you either are a dog or a cat person. i’m both. i really am.

    well. i love your little Noah.

    (nb – the bookish me is asking for pictures of your books/bookcases.. is there any chance?)

    • Me too! When I was a kid we always had both cats and dogs. One of my strongest memories from childhood is from inside a closet where my mum kept newly washed bedlinen & tablecloths, I used to bring our cat for a nap in this cozy place- smelling of soap powder and mild perfumes. (No wonder I have developed asthma…)

      Bookcase-portrait will come – .

  2. What a cutie! Yes, that’s the way it goes. Our Denny was meant to be my sons dog, after he lost Biko, but Denny choose me as his person instead. I didn’t really want another dog, since I have Happy, but Denny wormed his way into my heart. 🙂

  3. This is exciting. The table at the window is filling up and the spirits of the house have found it as a home. It will be thrilling to see what you do with that tricky looking balcony out there.

    • I have to admit, it will not be a balcony! Its just a pergola over the terrace downstairs. But it can make a nice framework for climbing plants, wouldn’t you agree?

      Rules and regulations are strict around here, and I’m rather happy about it. 3/4 of this little headland where our house is will be kept public, planted with local (endemic?) plants; different kinds of grass and ericaceae (“lyng”)
