Phex is sometimes sad

Phex is my Belgian shepherd. He is already over 12 years old. Most of the time his age doesn’t show, except of the grey spot of hair in his face. But sometimes he looks really sad and there is no way I could make him happy. I think he misses his master. Maybe he likes to visit Mr C. in the village, because Mr C. is smoking. I don’t know. I do know, that Mr C. has three cats who do not like canine visitors. And as far as Phex is concerned, it might be better for him to talk with Bach about his problems. After all Bach is also a dog.

Three days after this melancholy evening the pasturage and the outbuildings were bathed in sunlight. Miniputz and Rudi explored the stables and Phex took the opportunity to have a word with Bach in the wilderness of the corners of the property.

  1. Maybe after their chat, Phex will feel happier? Hope so!

  2. Beautiful photos as usual. I thought you were the owner of Phex. I believe they think you’re their momma, after all you are the one who cares for them and truly loves them!

    • Yes, I’m the owner, but Phex was very attached to my ex. Phex doesn’t like Brad much and Phex thinks I should devote more time on brushing him the “right way”, it’s still unknown how that would be. In German we don’t call dog owners “mommy” or “daddy” btw. We say “Frauchen” (little woman) or “Herrchen” (little master) instead. The syllable “chen” is a diminutiv but expresses also a friendly emotional relation. Boring speech, short conclusion: I don’t feel as if “mommy” would describe me very well, though I sometimes call Bach “my baby”. And he, Bach, is crying silently behind me, it’s feeding time, and I’m “sitting here and doing this completely obsolete typing thing with my hands”. I got to run and feed em all.

  3. Wunderschöne Fotos! Geht es Phex besser?

    • Naja, meist schon, kommt drauf an, ob ich brav bin. Am Sonntag haben wir Herrn Cardinal besucht, da ist er wieder ein bisschen ausgeflippt, fand es aber toll. Gestern war ich mit der Katze und Rudi beim Tierarzt, da war er wieder eifersüchtig und machte einen auf unverstanden und gequält. Ich musste Phex aus dem Auto heben, weil er partout mitfahren wollte. Dabei war das weder für die Katze, noch für Rudi angenehm beim Tierarzt. “Phex, sei froh, dass du nicht mitmusst,” sagt Phex natürlich nichts. Er guckt ganz gern mal tragisch aus der Wäsche (aus dem Fell), das war schon immer so.

  4. hey stanze … wollte dich wissen lassen, dass ich dich nominiert habe http://worldwhispererenglish.wordpress.com/2012/11/14/blog-of-the-year-2012/
