Yesterday was a very strange day. It was cloudy the entire day, but the sky had kind of a red hue to it, which made the greens in the grass look very dark green and generally made everything look kind of strange. Everytime I went outside I got the feelíng I was living on Mars or Saturn.
It turned out that a giant cloud of Sahara dust had been carried by high winds over Europe. Sahara dust is red, and the dust was above the clouds, and it looked very interesting yesterday. I would have taken a picture but I doubt I would have been able to capture the essence of it.
We got a phone call yesterday from one of the restaurant owners who is the owner of Tobi’s mother (Nicki) and one of his brothers (Wuzi) (it was a total litter of eight). They wanted to know if there was any hope of puppies from one of Nicki’s children. Last week, Nicki and Wuzi had slipped away from the restaurant unnoticed and were shot at the edge of the forest by a hunter.
There are no words I can use to express my anger, outrage and sorrow.
Here is a photo of Nicki at the gathering in honor of the litter’s first birthday:, here, some of her children:
