CATS ON TUESDAYWhen I came home last week, I found my little cat family in great shape, and they enjoyed the sunshine after a week of rain.
For once even Kim looked for company and had joined Rosie and Arthur
Pookie who had choosen to be an indoor cat, looked as if she had put on some weight ! Mr. G. probably gave her too much whipped cream.
But there were terrible news for me and especially Arthur and Kim
Our friend Yanouk had to be put asleep, he had very strong arthritis in the left hind leg and just couldn't make it anymore. He looked still so young in his face but the back was badly damaged. Bernese mountain dogs in average only live 8 years and he made it to 10 which was still too short. He should have shared our lives for much longer. Domi my friend had to take the terrible decision to have put him asleep while I was in England.
Here behind the hedge he used to lay and watch over "his" cats. Arthur and Yanouk used to lay side by side only separated by the fence when the hedge wasn't grown yet. Kim used his dog house while he slept outside and waited that she would leave his house. Each night Kim looked through Domi's window door at Yanouk, nobody knows if she wanted to say him "good night".
Usually on thursdays it was my day to walk Yanouk as Domi took care of her little grandson.
He was the most beautiful dog in the whole area and everybody looked at him. Often Arthur walked with us for a while and then returned home. He also had used Yanouk once as an ombrella Domi has told me. He stand under Yanouk not to get wet !
I think you easily can imagine how Domi feels ! He took so much space litteraly and in our hearts. I each time now when I go out on the terrace I miss him so much ! He was part of our lives too.
