FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG: APPEARANCE-REALITY November 1, 2014Posted by wmmbb in DOG BLOG -.
Things are not what they seem. Who know what Dexter and Hannah make of them. Friday was a perfect day, borne out by the photos, but a something happened.
We met Lexi. Both her and Hannah’s lead broke. There were frolics aplenty and high speed action. Unfortunately Lexi was injured. That might not have been noticed, but I suggested her owner look at her. When I looked, I suggested that she be taken to the Vet. It then turned out that Lexi has to have an operation. To my inexpert eyes the injury did not look serious. We will have to see how that goes.
There are not many stories from Siberia. This story involved a small dog and a 3 year old girl:
A little girl lost in a remote region of Siberia inhabited by bears and wolves survived 11 days in the subarctic forest by eating wild berries and drinking river water before her dog finally left her side to summon help, leading rescuers to her location.
Karina Chikitova, 3, wandered away from her home in a remote village of the Sakha Republic on July 29, according to The Siberian Times
Her mother believed Karina and her dog had followed her father, Rodion, who had left to go to his native village. Because there were no phone connections, it wasn’t until four days later that the family discovered Karina was missing, prompting a massive search.
Sakha is said to be Siberia’s coldest region in winter, but this time of year overnight temperatures were about 42 degrees Fahrenheit [5.6 degrees Celsius], though some parts were colder. Karina hugged her dog and huddled up in the tall grass to stay warm, but that made it difficult for rescuers to spot her from helicopters and drones.
Two days before Karina was found, her dog returned to the girl’s home in the village Omon in the Olyokminsky district. The dog that led rescuers to the little girl lost in Siberian forest.
It will not belong before the ubiquitous mobile phone technology will reach Siberia. Dogs have their uses.
According to the song, “the rain has moved on, and left the perfect day”. Let’s hope the rain will move back, and the creek is flowing again. The “marxists” at the Bureau of Meteorology are not optimistic after considering the portents for this summer:
We have to see how that goes. More photo editing was required, since the music selection on offer probably does not make up for the longer record of this week’s outings:
The “perfect day” is more fiction than reality, and a good theme for a song, sung by Miriam Stockley, in contrast to Lou Reed:
