While the French children had school vacation, my animals had holidays as well. The August was dry and sunny. I had to work a lot outside and the dogs were playing cards with the sheep under the high trees in the park. Okay, maybe they weren’t playing cards, but the sheep were quite lazy. The warmer it is, the less they need to eat. The dogs chased rabbits and mostly the rabbits won. But not always. The dogs were barking at the inevitable farmers, who worked day and night to make sure, we won’t get bored and won’t sleep too much.
Miniputz and Schlafmütz get along quite well lately. They lick each others heads as a greeting. But sometimes Miniputz still wants to play and Schlafmütz prefers to lies on her human (me), stretching and purring.
Today Rudi and Bach had excavation fun at the side of the fields. If they would continue their “work” on the whole field, the farmer wouldn’t have to plough anymore.
We had some flea problems again. Fipronil didn’t kill anything, Spot-On for around 60€ was complete waste. I bought spray with Permethrin or something like that and we all took a “shower”. Some resistent fleas lived on Phex’ tail. Impossible to kill them. The tail is like a jungle. After the spray it was better for two weeks. Now we used Advantix and hope the best.
Rudi is happy when the vet treated his little problem. He told me that he wants to dress as vet for halloween. Vets are the most scary beings on earth. Rudi still has a quite embarrassing digestion problem. But he usually forgets all his problems, because the world is funny and exciting (with the exception of vets).
Phex is happy when we’re outside and when I brush him “right”. He’s the only one that knows how “right” is defined.
Today I watched Kleines and Berta rub on a tree. Wool is always itchy and sheep have no hands. That tree is a multifunctional beauty parlour. Miniputz used it at the same time to sharpen her claws.
