Sunset & Life in Spain – 6 Photos


The autumn did also come to Spain. As you can see here, not all look like the clearly blue sky, as we are used to see. This sunset I found a little unusual and wished to show you


Few days ago we had fullmoon again. In the evening there were too many clouds to see the fullmoon, but very clearly in the morning


Odin enjoy his nice walks, where he get a lot of time to run without his lead. I’m grateful, that it was possible to learn Odin not to hunt the rabbits, as we have millions of here. Many of them are sick and he is feeded very well at home and doesn’t need to hunt his own food, like many others are.

My heart is crying for so many other dogs, as we have met lately here. Abandoned dogs by different excuses, as just get their freedom in the nature and then are expected to be able to take care of themselves or find themselves a new home. We have through the last two weeks met 7 dogs without a collar and without an owner. Some of them are friendly and others very scared.

It is not allowed to put animals to sleep here in Spain. Only the vet can decide, if this is the last way. In one way, this secure many animals to the chance to survive, but in another way, it lets many animals starve to death or by sickness to death.

In my time here I have seen hunters with many dogs for each hunter. They are not free to have. You need to chip and vaccinate all by the law. Then you need to be able to feed them and take care of them. If the hunters family don’t have too much money, the dog will often become to set free after the hunting season. Many families are starving or only have to feed the humans, many only the kids. In these families the dogs have the risk to be set free, as people here see it. The dog gets another chance, if someone will take the dog and take care.

Among the free dogs I have met at my walks with Odin, it was easy to see, that some of them have been beaten up. They have deep and old scares. Some of them are brave enough to come and say hello to us and others run very fast away, scared for more beaten up. There are good people and bad people all over. Some should not be allowed to have either animals or kids ever. They don’t understand their responsibility for anything.

I love animals and to see this kind of cruelty are very tough. I really wish, that I could do more, than I’m able to. In this cases I try to remember H.H. Dalai Lama’s words: If you can’t help, at least don’t hurt.

I love my old cats, as are 12 years now and I really try my best to give them space to be the cats, as they wish to be. They cry to get outside in daytime, sometimes 5 minutes other times for hours. They are neutred many years ago and don’t run far away, but they really love to stay in the garden at the grass and crawl in our big tree. Hunting what they can gives them good excersize. They rarely catch anything, but try and get to use their senses.

They have raised Odin to be a kind dog to both them and to other cats. As you might know, cats are not very sensitive in their way of raising. They use their nails to show, what they mean. Odin learned to be very fast to move his head, which is very smart 😀

I believe, that animals have souls and their own personality. Short time ago I wrote with another blogger in here and she mentioned, that many still don’t think, that dogs have a soul. For me this is more than a bad excuse for treating the animals in a not good way.

How are animals treated where you live in our world?


At our morningwalk we met this little snail, as was so kind to let me photograph


This photo of the the sunset and the next are from one of our beautiful days, before the rain and storm sat in


I hope, that you enjoyed our walk

As you might know, I have been sick with Bronchitis for almost two weeks now and I’m not back to usual yet. I need energy to go on with my life. I have so many things as I would like to do, but not the energy or abundance for much yet.

I have so many plans and ideas as I would like to realize, but they need to wait until I feel ready again. I have been so very tired after much medication and I do know, it takes time to come back, even I do not have the needed patience for this.

I feel happy to see the sun again here in Spain after so long time with rain and storm. The garden need a make-over and I have got some ideas about what I would like to do to get it looks good and be nice to just sit and enjoy, but it demands a lot of work, which I still need energy for.

I do not like, when the garden looks like not taken care of for very long time, the winter, and I would like to plant some beautiful flowers to give life and beauty in the garden and the terrace.

My old cats & Odin enjoy to stay in the garden when the sun is on, which I fully understand, it is so very nice just to take in the sun. The cats look for places to relax and Odin for space for playing. They all love the grass, which also need to be taken care of.

For now I use the most of my energy to walk with Odin, practice behavior and play with him, and for this I also use a lot of energy. I try to find new places to walk with him and explore the area. This is also so much more nice, when the weather is good and the sun high at the heaven.

I hope that you enjoyed reading.
