Splash!!

Come with me and take a dip in the sea, said the bigger dog when we were at Manoel Island last weekend.
It’s nice and cool, 22 degrees!! Come on Fanny!!!I don’t know if I dare I’ve never swam before but it looks fun. Fair enough, I’ll try!! Splash!!!! This may not be the best way to get up from the water but I’m a brave, strong and very stubborn Basenji who never gives up. I will certainly try again but may need some assistance from my leader.

Hopefully Fanny and I will soon swim together in the Mediterranean where it’s now 22 degrees. Some dogs may have the physical capacity to swim, but a mortal fear of the water. We’ll have to start on shallow waters and I’ll try to make her feel safe and encourage her to enjoy it. If that doesn’t work I’ll will never force her.💖Who knows, within a week or two, she may be a real water lovers.💖

Friday’s thoughts…

Sometimes, I get a feeling of not knowing why or for whom I post my pictures on this blog. You’ll find that some of my pictures are posted without any special intention. I’ve no inspiration to take part in photo challenges at the moment. Right now, I’m just trying to keep my blog alive but…

Weekend in Greenery

Some pictures from Malta in early March.

I have a little too much around me right now but tomorrow I’ll take the time to visit You!
You are my inspiration, take care out there!

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – 2017 Favorites

To celebrate the end of the year, this week we share the most meaningful photo we’ve taken in 2017.

This little Proboscis baby monkey I saw very close to Sarawak River and Kuching City. A place where you rarely meet them.

Wild Proboscis are only found in Borneo and Indonesia. With a threatening extinction it´s amazing to get the chance to meet this unique species in their natural environment. Moments I`ll never forget.A favorite picture I took in Permai Rainforest in Sarawak, Borneo, Malaysia in April 2017.

Last but not least. After four years of waiting, I finally got my beloved four-legged little puppy home to Malta. A long-awaited new family member, an amazing dog that will bring a lot of joy for many years to come.

Weekend pics from Malta

Above you see pictures from our terrace and below from Ta Qali National Park where we went with Fanny last weekend. We also found a Dog Park but Fanny is too young to visit it, we have to wait until she is at least six month old. But she enjoyed the other part of the park while we trained her to walk well kept on leash.

CFFC – Letter N

Nature lovers, on hiking in Malta in November.Natural look. Neat and so lovely, but nearly too close.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Needs to start with the letter N

Why Malta – This is my Malta part 2

Yesterday we went to Saint Agatha’s Tower in Mellieħa, also known as the Red Tower, located half an hour’s drive from home. Not because of the tower itself but for the surroundings, the nature and the view.Fanny really enjoys to explore new areas and there’s a lot left for her to discover on this island.On  Saturday when we visited a park close to Floriana nearby Valletta. Fanny is kept on a lead all the time while I try to teach her to walk without pulling all the time, not as easy as it sounds. A stone is a stone, but some stones can even smile. Or did we meet a magical being 😉

Tuesday mix from Malta

Äntligen hemma!Äntligen är min efterlängtade fyrfota familjemedlem hemma. Fanny busar, biter i allt, är smart, kvick, rolig och väldigt kelig. Hon älskar att slappa i solen ute på vår terrass, just nu ligger hon i min famn medan jag skriver med ena handen på datorn. Hon tar upp all min tid men jag känner mig väldigt, väldigt lycklig och… …äntligen hemma!

Fanny är en fyra månader gammal Basenji valp som vi köpt från en uppfödare i Tibro, Sverige. Under den fyra timmar långa bilresan till Stockholm låg hon stilla i min famn. Två dagar senare var hon instängd i en trång väska i sex timmar utan att gnälla det minsta då vi flög från Arlanda till Malta. Hon är bara så helt underbar.

Sunday Mix from Kuching

Kuching is divided by the Sarawak River where locals often catch fish and shellfish. There are plenty of fish in the river and fishing boats leave the nearby harbor early mornings so you can buy fresh fish in the local market.
The Sarawak River is listed as a location of the Crocodile Removal Zones, whereby the presence of crocodiles in this area pose serious human/crocodile conflicts. In July a 2.5 meter long Sarawak crocodile meet its end. This one was luckily behind bars at a rehabilitation center when I took the picture.Getting from one side to the other is easy with small primitive boats. It takes a few minutes and cost 50 cent. A footbridge will be finished at the end of the year. That´s great for me who love long brisk walks.Sunday stroll. Having a dog as a pet isn’t common here in Kuching because of the Muslims. For some reason, they don’t like dogs. In my thoughts I can see my funny little Fanny horsing around among the dismayed Muslims 😉 ..with all due respect!

Everyday life in Malta

Några bilder från vardagen här på Malta. Klicka gärna på en bild för att förstora.
Utmed den breda havspromenaden vid Tower Road finns det många sätt att ta sig fram. Nere vid The Strand i Sliema är turisterna många liksom de som vill sälja utfärder.Tower Road sträcker sig flera kilometer från Spinola Bay i San Giljan till Tigne och Qui si sana i Sliema. Perfekt för den som vill promenera, motionera eller bara flanera. 🙂

Dåligt gömställe (100/365)

Inte lätt för en liten Proboscis att gömma sig när det prasslar bland löven vid minsta rörelse. Den här ungen fanns i det begränsade grönområdet intill Sarawak River. Så nära bebyggelse, fordon och människor trodde jag aldrig att de sökte sig. Den hade förmodligen sin familj tätt intill, fast de tycktes ha funnit ett bättre gömställe.
