Pouring rain / 土砂降り Aug. 31

OMG.  Heavy rain this morning :(

Kaiya doesn't like going out in the rain...and I didn't even wanna go out in this pouring rain but kids needed to pee and poo.

Mato usually doesn't care about anything so he's totally as normal in the rain ;p

今朝はめっちゃ雨降ってた〜( ;∀;)

雨嫌いなKaiyaさんはいやそうだったけど トイレは行かないとね。

Matoは なんでも気にしないタイプだから ふつー(笑)

I thought Chilli and Carina wouldn't come to the dog park because of the rain.  As we were about to leave the place, they came!

We took a walk together ;)))

今日はこの雨だからシリーはドックランに来ないかと思って帰ろうとしてたら この後シリーもきて一緒に雨の中お散歩したんだ〜!( ^∀^)

After I came back home from work in the afternoon, we went for a long walk.

That rain stopped but still dull weather...thick clouds covering up the whole sky and it was hot and humid.

At first, they had a free running time at the park.

午後 仕事から帰って来てから長いお散歩へ行ったよぉ〜!

朝のあの雨は止んでたけど どんよりお天気。湿気のおかげで蒸し暑い( ̄∀ ̄)

We were walking where we'd never been to before and I realized we were walking right next to the race track we saw the other day.

いつも行かないところを歩いてたら どうやらこの間見た競馬場のめちゃめちゃ近くを通ってたみたい。


After over 2-hour walking, I was tired and sweating a lot...thanx to the humidity :(

We were so hungry.  We hurried home ;p


お腹空いたから 最後は急いで帰ったよぉ〜ん(笑)

Meeting Chilli every morning / 毎朝シリィと Aug. 29

We meet Chilli almost everyday lately :)))

Mato's growling as he and Chilli meet for the first time of the day has gotten less and less 

最近毎朝シリィに会ってる〜( ^ω^ )


This is Kaiya's favorite place right now.

It's gotten cooler in Stockholm but Kaiya likes this chilly air, I guess.


いないと思ったら ここにいることが多い。

涼しくなって来たけど Kaiyaにとってはちょうどいいのね( ^∀^)

And then this boy. lol

He lay down right next to me on the sofa and when I gave him a quick glance, he was like this. lol

He does this quite often.  ;)))

Found a nice spot / いいとこ見っけ! Aug. 27

Somehow I was so tired this morning and I wasn't planing to go for a long wlak.

But it was such a nice day and cool air was very refreshing. 

I decided to go for a long one as we walked.

We were walking towards the direction we usually didn't take then we found little woods on the other side of the street.

I've walked here before but I guess the woods were in my blind spot, I didn't noticed it before.

First, we scouted around to see if it's safe for Kaiya and Mato to run around here since the highway and regular road run very close.

今朝はなんか疲れてて長い散歩へ行く気はなく ふつーにスタート。

だけど外に出たら気持ちがいいから 長めの散歩をすることに変更!   ( ^ω^ )

いつもあまり行かない方角へしばらく進んでいたら 道の反対に良さげな森を発見。

前も通ったことある道だったけど この森は死角だったわぁ〜。

ハイウェイが近かったり 普通の道路に面してたりするから まず森に入って偵察。

The race track!

Many horses were racing there.  Kaiya and Mato couldn't take their eyes off of it ;p


馬がいっぱい走ってて 2人は釘付けに(笑)

I checked that it's fenced around on the highway side and we were pretty far in from the regular road where we came.

Most of all, there weren't anyone around.

Time to run and have fun!


なかなかいい広さの森で 普通道路からはだいぶ離れたし 向こうまで行くことはないっしょ。

何より人が誰もいないから ちょっと走るか!

They love to run in the woods the best!

やっぱり森で走るのが一番楽しんだねぇ〜 生き生きしてる!

A while later, Kaiya came right in front of me and crashed. lol

I think she's cooling off on the flowers and grass after a good running exercise :))

急に私の目の前に来たと思ったら ドサッ。

暑くなって 花の上で体を冷やしてる模様です(笑)

Welcome back Mato :)

Chilly morning / 寒い朝 Aug. 26

It's getting cooler and cooler here in Stockholm.

Sometimes it's gets below 10°C early in the morning.

We started our morning walk in the cool temperature but thanks to the sun, it's got warm quick.

In winter, we don't get to see the sun so often and it doesn't get warm easily :((

We enjoy the last bit of summer feeling now;)

Since it was a bad summer and didn't get hot at all, I hope the winter comes late...


朝は早いともう10度ない時あって 寒っ!!

今朝も涼しい中散歩スタートだったけど 徐々に暖かくなって来た〜!


冬になると太陽の顔さえあまり見れなくなるから 全然暖かくならないもんなぁ(泣 )

まじ太陽に感謝!!太陽様様だ♪( ´θ`)ノ

夏の終わりはもうすぐそこだけど 全然暑くならなかった今年の夏。

Long walk after long home alone / 長いお留守番のあとは長いお散歩 Aug. 24

It's been a while but we are back!

I've been busy...this time is not because I was being a lazy ass.  I literally didn't have time...


ここのところ 真面目に忙しくて 全然アップできなかった。

いや ほんとに。


We met Chilli on both Monday and Tuesday morning.

Since Mato became 1 year old and a young adult male...he's not very nice to other dogs sometimes especially to male dogs.

Since it's been months since the last time we met Chilli, Mato started to growl at him when he was approaching the dog park where we were in.

I didn't know what to do but Chilli's owner Carina was so smart!

First, she tied Chilli's leash to the fence outside the dog park and she alone came in.

We casually chit chatted until Mato got calm and got used to being in the same place with Chilli.

Then she brought Chilli in.  Nothing happened :)

Both of them are uncastrated males but they knew each other since Mato was a puppy which I think is one of the reasons it went smoothly.

I admire Carina!!  I'm so thankful to her understanding of dogs and the patience for Mato.

This was such a good training for Mato to be calm around other dogs ;)))

ってことで 最近のKaiyaとMatoは。

月曜と火曜の朝 久しぶりにシリィにあったよぉ〜!

1歳を過ぎて だいぶガウガウ君になってしまったMato。


どうしようかと思ったら さすがシリィの飼い主カリーナ。

ちょっと落ち着かせようって シリィをドッグランのすぐ外に繋いでおいて カリーナだけドッグランに入場。

少し話をしたりしながら同じ場にシリィがいることに慣らして興奮が治るのを待って シリィを中に入れたら 全然平気〜。

去勢してない牡同士だけど 小さい頃から知ってるしね。

興奮を抑えて落ち着かせたら いつもな感じに それぞれドッグランの中で色々してた(笑)

Today I got home from work later than I planned.  Because both Kaiya and Mato were such good kids being home alone for long hours, I took them for a long walk in the early evening.

At first, we went to the park on the hill.

But this place got messier and messier...trash everywhere and I even found broken bottles with many broken glass pieces.

Too dangerous.  We didn't stay long there and went forward.

今日は仕事がから帰ってくるのが予定より遅くなっちゃって 長いお留守番がんばった2人だから 夕方長い散歩へ!


だけど いつも以上にゴミが散らかってて ガラス瓶が割れたりしたのがあったから 早く切り上げて先へ。

We stopped at a dog park which we don't come often since it's little far from our home.

Not that big but they seemed like they needed more running and chasing time.

And yes, it begins! ;)


そんなに広くないけど 走り足りなかったみたいだから 追いかけっこして遊んだ〜!

そして始まる( ̄∀ ̄)
