Note to burglar

We are not on holiday yet, but M told me we will leave soon. I am thrilled! I was a bit worried, however, too. Because when I am gone, who will guard our house? M told me they rented the place, so other humans will stay in our house. They have no dog, she assured me, but I buried my bone in the garden when M wasn’t looking. Just to be sure.

There are humans staying in our house, but will they be capable of guarding the house in a way that is sufficient? I doubt it. So I found a solution to that problem: I asked my good friend Boss to keep an eye on it in my absence. He said he would be delighted to do so. He truly is a great friend.

So when you are a burglar and you are reading this: please feel free to try breaking into our house. You will give Boss a good time. By the way, this is what he looks like:


Imagine that piece of wood in his mouth being your arm or leg? Right. Happy guarding, Boss!


Adventure ahead

Uh-oh. This is what I just saw in our house. My humans are packing, big time!


This can mean only one thing: we are going to have a Big Adventure. I think we are going on a holiday! And I am sure I am coming with M and P, because they are packing my stuff, too. I saw my food and mountain walking gear amidst these things! Oh yeah.

I am very excited about this. I like going on an Adventure, especially with M and P. I will smell new things, meet other dogs and hopefully some foxes too! I will taste new things, like…. sea food I haven’t tasted before. Squid? Lobster? That would be nice. Oh, I can’t wait, I hope we will go soon! And I hope we will see the mountains again, I love mountains!

I love mountains

Of course I will let you know all about my Adventures. Just don’t count on a picture of a juicy squid, I’ll gobble it before I can take a selfie-with-squid.



The weather finally got better and now a lot of humans are complaining it is too hot! I find this an odd thing about humans in Holland. They always complain about the weather: it is too hot / cold / rainy (most of the time) / dry or windy. Or cold and windy. That is even worse, of course (I don’t understand why, but they say it is).

Today it is plus 30 degrees Celsius, M tells me. For Dutch standards that is hot. That is what they complain about now. Some humans even tell other humans they should not walk their dogs because of the heat! I’ll be frank: that is totally ridiculous. Hello people, it is summer! It is supposed to be hot! And we canines are strong and though, we are able to handle this! Me personally, I love it when it’s hot. I lie in the sun when ever possible, even when it is 30 degrees.


I am from Greece and some of my ancestors came from Arabia, so I am made for hot weather. Some dog breeds from the north do not like the heat, but when they can rest in the shade and have a nice drink at nose distance they are fine, too. Do not take our daily walk from us because it is hot, please! And if you are lucky enough to live near the beach, go there and let us cool down a bit in between our running and playing.


And please, please stop complaining about the weather. Enjoy the sun!
