We walked to the dog park in Solna.

隣町Solna(ソルナ)のドッグランまで来たよぉ〜!


It used to be one huge dog park but they separated it into two.

Mato can be little reactive to other dogs so I guess this was nice that we had this side all for ourselves.

前は一つの広かったドッグランだけど 二つに別れてた。

Matoくんはちょいとガウガウだから こっちの少し狭い側に私たちだけでいれたからよかった(^ ^)


Cuddling with Mato.  He loves to bug me and sleep in my arms :p

今日も甘えん坊のMatoだよ。マミーにじわじわ寄って来て腕枕で昼寝を試みるヒト(о´∀`о)


Kaiya, on the other hand, is chilling all by herself.

Kaiyaさんはというと・・・定位置でひとりを満喫w

0°C / 0度 Oct. 20

0 degrees this morning.

今朝0度。


It didn't feel like it was that cold since I was wearing enough layers but slippery on the bridge...yep, it's cold enough to make it icy.

防寒しっかりしてったから 寒さは感じなかったけど 足元が滑りやすい感じになってる〜( ;∀;)

Vaccination / ワクチン接種 Oct. 19

It's been more than a year since the last time Mato got vaccinated.

We made an appointment with the vet that's close from our home, about 20 min on foot, and had Mato vaccinated.

They were really nice people and really good that Mato didn't even noticed he got a shot. lol

Since it was such a nice weather, we detoured and took a nice walk home ;)

Matoの最後のワクチン接種から1年経ったから 昨日は近くのクリニックまで行って来たよ。

初めて来るとこだけど 歩いて20分くらいのとこ。

上手に注射をうってくれて Matoほぼ気づかずにワクチン接種終了w

いい天気だし みんなでちょっと遠回りをしてお散歩しながら帰ったよ!

Mommy's extra energetic / 元気すぎるマミー Oct. 16

Somehow mommy was pumped up and the work out at the gym wasn't enough.  That's why we took an extra walk today!

Look!  I thought they were very quiet and no wonder why... I guess extra walk made them crash right a way.

Mato is his usual spot on the couch.

Kaiya who likes cooler place is on the fur rug on the floor.

Sweet dreams my sweet babies ;)

今日はなぜかマミーが元気モリモリでジムでのトレーニングだけじゃ足りなかったらしく いつもより多く散歩に出たよぉ〜!

したら じゃじゃ〜ん!なんか静かだと思ったら 2人ともマミーの横でダーウン!

Matoはソファの上のいつもの定位置。

涼しいとこが好きなKaiyaはMatoの下の毛皮マットの上で スヤスヤ〜(о´∀`о)

Unbelievably sunny!!

My babies were happy and energetic!

Before the sun went down, we decided to go out and chill in the park.

午後は太陽が沈む前に日向ぼっこしに行ったよぉ〜!

Kaiya doesn't usually stay too close too long...but this boy is pretty much always besides me ;))

Kaiyaはいつまでも近くにいないヒトだけど Matoはいっつもマミーの近く。


We visited Simba in the evening!

夜はシンバの家に行って来たよぉ〜!

Pella turns 20 on Monday so we had early birthday dinner together and had also a cake :))))

A break from rain / 雨から一休み Oct. 13

It's been raining a lot in Stockholm....dark and rainy usual fall...

But finally we got the sun back!!

The sun showed itself when I was on the way to work biking.

Awesome!  Warm!  Thank you SUN!!!

最近は雨ばっかり降るストックホルム。いつものことながらジメジメ秋。

それでも今日は太陽が出た!

自転車で通勤途中に太陽出てきたぁぁぁ。

太陽最高〜!暖かい〜!

太陽ありがとぉ〜!!!


Afternoon walk on Friday lasted about one and a half hour.

Kaiya loves to make herself messy...lol

午後の散歩は長めで1時間半くらい行って来た〜!

途中で 出た Kaiyaのゴロゴロ。・・・ここでかぁ〜(^^;)

We were by the woods and had some off the lead time :)

ちょっと森の方まで行ったから水辺で自由時間。

Nose work (step.2) 3 / ノーズワーク(ステップ2) 3 Oct. 10

We had the last class of the Nose Work step 2.

ノーズワーク・ステップ2の最後のクラスに行って来たよ〜!
On the way there in the train.  Looks like Mato's ready to do it! ;)
向かってる途中の電車の中で。やる気満々Mato(笑)


At first, we had four different type of search with only using laurel: glass containers on the floor, plastic containers on the floor, magnets on the fridge, and lined tea infusers on the rope.

This lined tea infuser search was the most difficult one!

The target odor is in one of the tea infusers and because the odor spreads in the air, everyone was having hard time finding the target!

今回のクラスではターゲット臭は月桂樹のみを使用。まずは4種類の違ったものに入ったターゲット臭をそれぞれ順番に。ガラスの容器、プラスチックの容器、冷蔵庫にくっついてるマグネット、ロープに並べて吊るした茶こし。

この茶こしは難しかったぁ〜!網だから臭いが空気中に広がって ターゲット臭の元にたどり着くのが困難になるらしく みんな悪戦苦闘してた。


We also did some search outside.

外でもいくつか練習したよぉ〜!



Little lecture time.

中に入ってレクチャータイム!



Now we are completed the Step 2.  Maybe we can take Step 3 class later but now I think we gonna practice at home for a while :)

It was really fun and nice experience for Mato, too ;)))

これでステップ2終了〜!暫くはうちで練習してもっともっとうまくなるぞ〜!ステップ3のクラスは後々ね(^ ^)

なかなか楽しかった!Matoもクラスに通っていい経験ができてよかった( ^∀^)

Rainy weekend / 雨の週末 Oct. 08

It was raining whole weekend in Stockholm.

Thanks to this non-stop rain, we couldn't take a long walk at all.

That's why we became couch potatoes.  lol

週末は雨なストックホルムだったよぉ〜!

ずーっと降りっぱで長い散歩にも行けず・・・

みんなでぐで〜。
Kaiya


Thanks Mato....you are soooo funny even when you are asleep.

白目むいて ぐで〜。
Mato


Actually it wasn't raining on Saturday morning so we could take a walk little longer than usual.

We were so lucky...as soon as we got home, it started to rain!

土曜日の朝は雨が降る前に散歩に行けたから ちょっと長めの散歩で楽しめたよぉ〜!

帰って来たて早々に雨が降り出したから ちょーラッキー!

Kaiya got too excited and forgot I was there...she ran into me...lol

I almost fell, almost dropped my phons and the cards in the phone case flew out.

んで持って Kaiyaにガチで激突された〜!w

スマホケースに入れてた カードが舞い落ちたさ〜(o_o)

And the other one joined the "please mommy just get it done with and go home" club. lol

雨だからさっさと先に進んで帰りたいらしいKaiyaにつられて Matoも。(笑)
