Clean Up Already!

Seriously?

Ssshhhhh it’s me, Ami. My hooman is out for grocery and I’m using the chance to hop on her computer to get some dog stuff done, you know, like ordering toys and snacks at Amazon, stare at yummi bulldog boys (no I did not drool all over my hoomans keyboard thingy and broke it) and talk about something that really bothers my on my hoomans blog. Yes I know, it’s not nice to use her computer when she isn’t home and I really would like my own Mac Book but she told me, before that would happen we would either need to win the lottery or make a big inheritance from a yet unknown rich uncle from America or get a sponsorship from Apple. She also told me that neither of these things would ever happen. Pffft hoomans *rollseyes*, right?

Anyhow, I wanted to talk about something totally different. Now imagine the the following: you just rolled out of your bed and your hooman takes you out on your first walkie of the day. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and you walk towards your favorite patch of pasture (and believe me, in the city those are kind rare) for an early morning sniff and . . . what the fuck is that?! . . . someone did not clean up after their doggo again. That is not only gross, it also shows a major lack of respect and responsibility and it’s a health issue. Pawrents who refuse to clean us after their doggo should not have a doggo at all. Letting that stuff lay around in the scenery ruins it for everybody else. A lovely patch of pasture turns into a shit hole just because you are too lazy to do your job. And it’s not even hard, doesn’t take a minute. Pick it up and toss the bag into the next bin or take it home to put it in the bin there. Do not even think about throwing that bag into the hedge. That would be totally intolerable!

Cleaning up after your doggo is a matter of respect, respect for your own dog and yourself, respect for other dogs (they want to sniff through that patch of pasture too without stepping in other dogs shit) and respect for other people. Just do the right thing, even when nobody can see you and clean it up. And maybe you even think about getting the right bags. Don’t take those nasty plastic bags, go for bags made from corn starch. Yes, they cost a few cent more, but it’s the right thing to do.

Oh, I think my hooman is coming home. Do not tell her that I was here. I swear, if you do, I will have to chew up your favorite shoe! Be safe and have a pawesome day!

My Smart Phone

Bumblebee

So, what the heck has my smart phone to do with this photo you ask? Well, I’ll tell ya! In 2005 I got rid of every phone in my life along with the TV. Then about 4 years ago I figured it could be time to get a new cell phone. My bank told me that I would need one sooner or later because the law would now require another security step for credit card users. Also, mobile banking would hit us all (ya by now they closed the locale branch just to make sure you have no choice). So I gave in and eventually got a cell phone (brand does not matter here). Now what? I had a phone but beside banking stuff and audio books (you bet, I got quite the collection by now) I didn’t really have use for it. Nobody to communicate with, beside getting a doctors appointment ones a year or yelling at the insurance now and then. I also don’t do social media. Nope, not at all. Well I tried FB and Instagram just to see if I was right but the entire concept is so absurd to me. People fill that guys website with content (most of it trash), give him their data and get annoyed by advertisements about things nobody really needs. Seriously? Why should I do that?

So what else are these phones good for? Well I love my weather app and there is a very useful app for knitting (helps you to count your rows and stuff). Also there is a Mahjong game I really love. But all this is just secondary because the one thing I really really use my cell phone for is to take photos. I never thought I would enjoy it so much. Since I don’t stare at FB while we are on walkies I have plenty of time to look around and discover all sorts of photo worthy things. Nothing, really nothing, beats the beauty of nature.

Be safe and have a pawesome day.

Last Days of Summer

Mist over the Meadows

The summer is almost over here in our corner of the planet. The days getting clearly shorter and the mornings are quite chilly. This summer was kinda moody, we had lots of rain and the temps where quite moderate. For all the trees, mother nature in general and Ami and I this was perfect. We can’t stand heat. Guess we both more more into fall and winter. Honestly, I can’t wait for Halloween. How about you? Have a pawesome day.
