At Norwegian Universities there’s ONE obligatory course for all students. Earlier you had to take it the first semestre, but now you only need to plot it in somewhere as you do your bachelor or master. Mom is taking that class now. Mom is very, very bored. But mostly – she’s having to write an assignment by this Friday. Or – she’ll have to hand in a first draft on Friday and so her group teacher can read it by Monday when she’ll be having a talk with him about it. Anyways.. Today she was up at 5.30 to give me a proper walk before heading off to school. And she intend to write the majority of the draft today. Because she’s got to write an assignment on the NHS in her British Civilization class by the end of this week, too.
Now send her some philosophical and encouraging thoughst – will you? I want her to come home as soon as possible. If it takes too long she’ll have to do the writing here with me on the couch, of course. A pug will only be left home alone for so long. But for some reason she claims to work better at school. She’s writing about Peter Singer’s environmental ethics, sentientism, biosentrism and deep ecology. Now doesn’t that sound like fun? I think I’ll have a little snooze. I’m sure if she could choose her own topic she’d write about pug philosophy, don’t you?
Anyway – this was boring, so let me show you a too cute shot of my aunties kittie Herbert aka Herbie!
Now are those cute toesies or what?
Hi guys! I am a little bit excited tonight. Mom is packing stuff and I’m.. well… I’m chomping at my BamBam. But hey – that’s what Moms are for, right?
Mom is a little excited, too! Because her new sewing machine arrived today. She carried it all the way from the post office. Which isn’t too far – but it was big and heavy enough after those 5-10 minutes.
She also sort of finished what was supposed to be a bed for Virus, but let’s say making up pattern as you go along sometimes doesn’t quite work out. Sometimes it would be better to actually have a pattern 😉
I also wanted to show what Mom’s bought for me – my very own tent!It’s a collapsible, fabric crate. So I’ll have somewhere to relax at the show that doesn’t take up so much space at home and isn’t too heavy to carry. I have a collapsible metal crate – but it weighs about as much as me according to Mom. BOL!
It’s got a little padded flooring and plenty of ventilation!
I’ll give it my seal of approval.
Virus came for a visit, too!
It’s been smelling a bit like a new tent – very plasticy – so we’ve had it up since Sunday hoping it would air out a bit. I don’t think it’s gonna bug me, though. So Mom doesn’t really need to worry.
She found the whippet clip to hold our number. I’m sure nobody cares it’s the wrong breed. She has so far not found the lovely, braided kangaroo leather show lead sweet Linda made and sent from Australia, though. She knows it’s here somewhere… But living in such a small space we have LOTS of boxes with stuff to get things out of the way. And all the other show leads are at grandma’s place. Mom called auntie Tove, though, after going to the store where they were either sold out or only had red, blue or beige leads (I’m neither of these colours unless Mom is painting and I’m helping). She said she’d head up into the attic to find one. I’ll be dog number 8 in the ring tomorrow morning (if all show) and we don’t want to need running by the vendor booths to look for a lead.
Here’s a picture of the lead, though! Isn’t Linda talented!?
Big kisses, Bajas
Edit: It’s Saturday morning and we’ll be leaving soon! We look forwards to talking with lots of people and dogs and take loads of pictures. If Mom doesn’t get too distracted. BOL!
