I have an extremely cute reason why I haven't been blogging lately. Photos attached :)
We were owning a lovely puppy for two days.
On the third day our lovely puppy turned into a land shark.
Luckily he has met most of the children that are part of my life within the first two days. Children just love him, especially my older niece (aged almost 8).
One of her questions was: "How long will he live with you?"
I replied : "We hope we will have him for at least ten years."
She asked: "And then?"
I replied: "Then he will die. He will join our beloved Wolf."
She was horrified: "But ten years is so little time!".
I couldn't agree more with her.
I have heard some silly comments lately (but not addressed directly to me), that childless people are compensating lack of children with pets. That pets are substitutes for children.
This assumption is just stupid. Since I know already now that when I am in my early fifties, there will be no Wolfie.
With my beloved Wolf I learned how short and precious life is. You just have to enjoy life, day by day, to the fullest you can.
I am looking forward to the time that Wolfie grows and will be strong enough for all the long walks.
