Writing goals

So it’s been a while, well a couple of days to be precise. It has been quite busy to be honest, Easter weekend so boyfriend was home a couple of days (Yes I was thrilled for it <3). We took Orion on this really long walk, lovely weather and a perfect excuse for a bit of leash training. He did it amazing, he only at a moldy fish bone and some horse shit, so all in all good!

Can you imagine what must have happend before to call this good.

Anyways I was glad that boyfriend was there to pull it out of his mouth, I pulled a dead frog out of his mouth he had the shits for days after that. The worst part about stuff like that (apart from the obvious) is that people just stand around watching, and then they have to comment. Like why?! Why do you have to comment? Oh that is just what beagles do *laughter8* And then all I can think is, that doesn’t mean that it does not hurt him. Yes, I might have to pay more attention to certain things, but come on! Him being a beagle doesn’t give anyone an excuse to stop paying attention to it

*rant over*

Back to last week. As a kid I used to write quite a lot and I’ve decided to properly pick this up again. I have been doing a lot of research and figured out the subject I want to write about, okay that was not the hard part. I have always been a sucker for fantasy, namely Elves. Don’t know why, but  I adore them. They are supposed to be these incredible, amazing creatures with so much wisdom, I love it! So I’ll be writing 24/7 now me thinks 😀 I’ll put up a link as well for those curious enough.

I have to admit I don’t have that  much to tell about the cats this time.We hang up a Feliway last week and they seem to be a bit nicer and cuddlier to each other. Surprised that works, and really glad again for obvious reasons. But other then that is has been really quiet there. Oh no, wait! Brownie is this ADHD ragdoll and we’ve been thinking to walk him with the dog. Not all walks of course, but mainly the morning or evening one when there are barely any people out and about. I’ll be training with him in the house first and then slowly we’ll be taking him out, and hopefully he is able to burn of some energy and leave our house whole. When we take him outside I’ll film it as well to put it up. Bound to be a fun little video!

The first chapter

So, hello there!

You found my lovely blog, probably wondering what on earth you are doing here, who is the lunatic writing. Or well, that was my thought. Might not be completely fair to copy my thoughts on to you.

How do you start a blog I wonder. The plan is to simply write about my life and the crazy things that happen. But while I am writing the house is really quiet, don’t get me wrong, I love this! No cats jumping around hissing at everything, or a dog who is trying to chew his way through the sofa. So let’s start from the beginning. Who am I, but way more interesting who are they.

My name is Dina, I live in the Netherlands and currently I am studying to become a teacher so one day I can teach English to Dutch students.
I live with my boyfriend in a small town in the middle of The Netherlands and we share our apartment with too many animals. Three cats and a dog, and yes they create a mess you will not believe.

The oldest one is a beautiful black cat called Mystique. He is now 7 years old and when I got him I was watching the X-Men. He has always been a bit moody and on his own, but he does love the occasional bit of attention. He prefers to stay away from the other monsters, but at times (mainly when the others are asleep, cause timing) he wants to play with them, which ends up in a hissing fest cause he suddenly remembers he doen’t like playing.

Then we got the two Ragdolls, Adonis and Brownie, both 4 years old. The most adorable, loving, fluffy breed of cats you will ever see. With those beautiful blue eyes they will melt you! Adonis is the lazy one, seriously he sleeps close to 20 hours a day. I know a cats sleep a-lot, but he takes it to the next level. Brownie on the other hand (I believe Adonis sleeps for the two of them) has energy enough for several cats. He charges around the house, jumps on and off things, scratches on doors and he meows like crazy, but what makes it so funny is that he is really clumsy. When he jumps, its like 50/50 if he makes it. It’s gotten a lot better over the years tho if you are willing to believe that.

And the we got last but not least Orion the Beagle. A little monster, filled with energy and curiosity and enough trouble to keep you busy all day. Born on the 13th of January 2017, so basically a newborn puppy, whom we love so, so much. He really wants to play with the cats, so he charges around when he sees them. Sniffs their bottoms, even saw him trying to hump Adonis once. Of course they don’t like it, so he is learning really quick to keep a lil bit of distance.

This was more text then I planned to begin with, but it’s a start. An introduction into my life. I will keep on writing on the things that happen around here and what our solutions are to certain things, but if you want to know anything in particular write a comment, or fill in the contact page!
