Bella has this game that she loves playing with Bølle and it is really fun to watch. It starts with Bella sneaking around in the far end of the garden, while Bølle is at the patio, pretending not to see her. When Bølle finally looks at Bella, she stands completely still, but as soon, as Bølle looks away, she quietly sneaks up on him again, like a lion in the savanna. When she gets close enough, she initiates her “attack” and rushes to surprise him:)
Bølle and Bella – Danish Swedish Farmdogs
When Bølle was younger, his favorite holiday tradition was to knock over Santa and Santa’s wife every morning before ripping apart other Christmas decorations in front of them (I guess that explains the horrified look on their faces).
Though this year, Bølle has been more interested in his Christmas stocking which had a new treat for him every day, so both Santa + wife survived December.
In a few hours we will sit down for a traditional Danish Christmas dinner (we’re celebrating on the 24th in Denmark) with roast goose and caramelized potatoes, and risalamande for dessert, so before entering food coma, I therefore thought I would wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
No snow in Denmark yet, but I found some old video clips of the first time Bølle experiences snow. He is only a few months old, and so excited about the fluffy white stuff. So cute! Can’t believe it’s more than 4 years ago. I just read an article in the New York Times about new research on how we should calculate a dog’s age. It was found that dogs age quicker during the first years of their life, whereafter the aging slows down. Instead of the old way of multiplying by 7, a more accurate way is therefore to take the natural logarithm of the dog’s age and multiply by 16, and then add 31. So Bølle’s 4 dog years translates into 53 human years:)
Here’s the formula: 16 ln(dog age) + 31 = human age.
Bølle is chasing snowflakes, and he is busy keeping up with all the snow falling from the sky. Bølle is almost 3 years old, so it isn’t the first time he experiences snow, but he behaves just like a puppy again.
Trine has a new puppy. The puppy’s name is Bella, and she is a Danish-Swedish Farmdog, just like Bølle. In the beginning, uncle Bølle wasn’t too happy about the new family member, but after a couple of days he had forgotten that he didn’t like her, and they started playing together, running around the house.
I think I’m with Bølle as parents are with their babies, and I have to sit on my hands in order not to spam my friends with Bølle photos and Facebook updates all the time. It’s just that he’s so adorable…
Do you remember Bølle? My parents’ puppy and the cutest dog on earth? He’s still adorable, even though he’s no longer a puppy, but a grown-up dog weighing 8 kilos. He is such a clever dog, and I’m always amazed by how much he seems to understand.
My parents just got a puppy. His name is Bølle (rascal in Danish), and he’s only 9 weeks old and so cute it’s crazy. He’ll chase his own tail and running around the house like a maniac until he abruptly crashes and enters deep puppy sleep on the couch together with his favorite pillow from Snuggly Ugly.
