Dasher's Italian Greyhound blog 2021

This is the continued story of Italian Greyhound Dasher started in July 2009 - see old blogs. The latest "happenings" will be put on at the top at frequent intervals, so the story unfolds from the bottom and up! He lives with his nephew Solo.
I have videos of Lure Coursing and other doggy things on YouTube under my name: sighthounddotnet - Email me or go back at any time to my sighthound.net start page.
Happy reading! - Janet

back to 1st blog July 2009 - 2010 - 2011- 2012 - 2013 - 2014 - 2015 - 2016 - 2017 - 2018 - 2019 - 2020

Friday the 15th of January 2021 - and the thirteenth blog!
All autumn and winter, while the season lasts, I eat a few walnuts every day as part of my lunch because they are so good for me. Just as I was running out and everywhere was sold out, son Adrian turns up with a kilo bag that has flown all the way from Chile! He saved the day. Here on the left are the last 4 from Grenoble in France and on the right, 4 of the new ones from Chile! One can see the difference! Taste is almost identical.

Below: Admiring the finished shapes in snow thatthe children made yesterday. (See below.)
Minus 4 degrees today so the dogs needed their coats with warm fleece legs - which they hate to have on!

All very mysterious says Dasher!

Below: Blackbirds are desparate to find food with this blanket of snow covering everything and minus temps. I put outside the only apple I had when off on the dog walk - they LOVE apples. When I came back, this male was eating it and was so loath to leave, that he stood there while I unlocked the door less than a yard away and I could even take some photos of him. I must buy some more apples.

Snow storm all last night and about 10 cm deep - much more than I have seen for quite a few years!
A family who were making huge shapes in the snow and explained it was to do with a school project!

Below, the dogs run around the house for exercise!

Below, earlier on before 8 am, the end of my road and the house:
Above right is my rain water measure with 10 cm snow on top!

But in total contrast, Copenhagen has none at all, see my son's view over town:

The last of the snow - in the form of a snowman sitting on a bench - but melting FAST!
(What a great idea!) The dogs were very unsure - if not a human, then WHAT? They even gave it a woof!

Friday the 8th of January 2021
We have Christmas and New Year behind us and look forward to a Corona-dominated future!

Guess who took that shoe! Below: The mist before the snow came.

We got snow! Early morning photo from Wednesday.

View from my "Ring" doorbell! Everyone should have one! Bring an end to all house break-ins! wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_(company)

Later on, the Ring door bell filmed me trying to film the dogs in the snow!

Two days later and much has melted.
