June 30, 2020 – A great place to be and the Munich Animals

Image
Mogli and I like being here in Unterfeldbrecht. As it is close season we are not allowed to run without a leash. My mistress bought a 15m/49 ft. leash and Mogli and I both got the chance to run on the long leash. It was also a possibility to train Mogli to listen to the commands. There are woods and fields all around town and not much traffic. One day we went on a very long walk, it felt forever to go back home. I am a senior and allowed to complain about long walks. The only downfall here is the ticks. There are thousands, millions of ticks and after every walk my humans found like 10 ticks or more in my fur. They decided to get a spot-on to keep the ticks away. Luckily that worked and Mogli and I did not have to deal with these creatures again.   Josef is a very friendly person and so is his family. They laugh a lot and my humans love that. The humans made a couple of campfires and had barbeques. Mogli and I were allowed to be at the fire as well. While my humans put a net over a fen

June 20, 2020 – Moving again

Our time here in Burg is over and Michael the owner of the flat will move back in. Mogli, my humans and I are moving to Bavaria now, to a little town called Unterfeldbrecht with about 100 people living there. Instead of going by train my humans rented a car to go there. We left early in the morning and first we had to take the ferry to cross the Nord-Ostsee Kanal. On the Autobahn was a traffic jam and it took us about 4 hours to drive 50 kilometers/31 miles. The reason was a construction area. As we had air conditioning in the car and plenty of room Mogli and I were fine with this. We slept most of the time. Because of the many construction areas our trip took almost double the time it would have taken without it. We arrived in Unterfeldbrecht at midnight.   You might wonder what we are doing in a small town like Unterfeldbrecht. I will explain it to you.   What my humans are doing is they go to a place where they work and can live for free. Sometimes they get food, sometimes they do t

June 15, 2020 – Nord-Ostsee Kanal

Image
It was a beautiful day today, the sun was shining and it wasn’t too hot. My humans decided to walk to the Nord-Ostsee Kanal, the channel that connects the North Sea to the Baltic Sea, where all the big ships that are made in Kiel have to pass to go to the open sea, cruise ships like Queen Mary II or other ships of all sizes. After we walked through the town of Burg we walked a small path to the channel. It was beautiful, so many things to smell. My mistress had a backpack with a snack for my master and her as well as some treats and water for Mogli and me. Mogli was very excited but he enjoyed it very much, so did I. When we arrived at the channel we saw a small ferry that crossed the channel because there was no bridge. My mistress told me that a bridge wouldn’t make sense, as the big ships that use that channel are very high. Makes sense to me. The humans sat down at a picnic table and Mogli and I relaxed in the grass. We watched the ships go by and shortly before we left a bigger co

June 10, 2020 – A lot of new impressions and a coincidence (I don’t believe in coincidences)

If you follow my blog you know that Mogli was living on a Husky farm in Swedish Lapland and that my humans adopted him. In Lapland Mogli used to live in a kennel with other dogs. This is where he was born and where he grew up. So he can survive in the winter living in a kennel but he has no experience with other things. Let me explain to you. First at all Mogli has never seen a cat before we arrived in Germany. Now all of a sudden there were cats everywhere on the streets in Burg. He didn’t know what to do with them and tried to play and say Hi but the cats didn’t appreciate his behavior and hissed at him. In Germany in some towns people collect plastic garbage in yellow plastic bags. They put them on the street on the evening before they will be picked up. Of course these plastic bags make noises when the wind blows. Mogli was scared of these bags at first but he experienced that they don’t jump on him and that I was cool with them. Mogli knows dogs, dogs in a kennel but not on a leas

June 1, 2020 – New name

As my humans work a lot on their software I can nap a lot. They go for a walk with Forrest and me a couple of times a day. Sometimes short walks and sometimes long ones. Forrest fell in love with Tina, a Yorkshire terrier lady. I know, she is way too small for him but what can you do about falling in love? So every time we walk past her house he is excited and looking for her everywhere. If she is outside she barks at him and tells him to stay away. Poor Forrest he is frustrated. On our walks we pass a pony, goats and a lot of cows. Forrest has never seen any of these animals before and he was very brave when he first saw them. It was still very cold in Lapland when we left and Forrest and I still have winter fur. Now with the warmer weather we change our fur and loose a lot of hair. My mistress has a special tool to get rid of the old hair and when we go for a walk she takes it with her to comb our hair. I am used to it and although I don’t like it too much know that I feel way better

May 21, 2020 – Back in Germany

We had a good and quiet night on the ferry. Forrest had to go to the bathroom at about 5 am and my mistress was able to watch a beautiful sunrise. I preferred to stay in the cabin and sleep. When finally the alarm woke up my humans they had breakfast, packed our gear and at around 9 am we arrived in Kiel. The owner of the AirBnB offered to pick us up in Kiel and my humans were happy with that as we did not have to take go to Kiel main station somehow, take the train to Burg (Dithmarschen) and walk to the apartment. Again it was great to have the ramps from the ferry into the terminal and not to take a shuttle bus and walk stairs. Forrest was very excited and he couldn’t wait to find out what was happening next. When he gets excited he wines and jumps. He is a really good jumper – he jumps over my human’s head from a standing position. His dad, Snowfox, is a great jumper too. Michael, our host, was very friendly and the humans talked a lot while Forrest and I looked out of the windows.
