A Dutch racing cyclist won the Giro d'Italia. Which has never happened before. The reason that makes his victory more special is because he had to do it all on his own. Most of the racers have a full team (read: rich sponsor) behind them which takes off a lot of the load. So I think he did a great job. I bet he'll want to win the Tour de France too, but he'll probably postpone that until another year.

I bought a Reader's Digest book series on a used products website. And I got lucky, because apparently there were some bidders after me, but the seller decided to give the books to me because I was the first person to respond. It's an old series about birds, butterflies, etc. My mom started collecting them and she had a second copy of a book which she gave to me and then I started to collect them too (I had 3 before today) and I figured I'd check the website to see if someone was selling the full series and -poof- lucky. Now my mom has the full set too, because she can have the ones I already had (which happened to include one she didn't have yet).

Groenendael dogs and collies are both glue-type of dogs. They want to be with you where ever you go and they are paying attention to what ever you do. Like a stalky staring shadow.
The dog must really like you if she prefers you over her owner (your aunt). Zeno usually stalks me over anyone else (unless other people are more active I suppose). What was the dog's name btw? I'm not sure if I asked.

We had another visitor over today (one of our neighbors aka the vampire) and he's really a calm quiet kind of person. Which means that the dog accepts him like he's one of the pack and even the cats weren't afraid of him. Vampire attraction rofl My black cat especially doesn't trust strangers. But he didn't see the vampire as a threat. Sure he didn't go say hi, but he'd walk by.

I wanted to try some agility with the dog. I bought a hulahoop and a tunnel (which thankfully he can fit through). Zeno figured out what to do in no time. I thought I'd only introduce the hulahoop (not both at once), but due to immediate success (after one 'I'll walk around this thing' he jumped straight through onto a platform), he seemed quite ready for another challenge. With the tunnel it was the same thing: first he just wanted to go around. So I gave him the down command first, so he would lie down in front of the opening. Then I could walk around to the other end and then call him through. Which worked. He wasn't afraid of the tunnel at all.
But I wouldn't want to actually join an agility club for a couple of reasons. 1. I think the speed at which the dogs compete is ridiculous. I think it's more important that the dog is active and enjoys the course rather than completing it quickly and 2. everybody there uses treats to reward the dog (as if the enjoyment of doing the course isn't enough for a reward). So I just wouldn't fit in.

The temperature dropped 10 degrees within 45 minutes today. From 30 to 20. Quite amazing, especially since there was no thunder or rain involved.

It's funny how my dog truly doesn't like 'intimidating' men anymore. One of our niehgbors always desperately wants to lure the dog towards him (he really likes the dog), but the more he tries (clapping, reaching out his hand, clucking his tongue), the more the dog wants nothing to do with him. rofl

Christopherodd started playing a new horrorgame called Perception. have you heard of it? I watched the first part. It's about a blind girl who uses echo location to see her environment. And of course she wants to investigate some haunted house which makes a lot of sense. The blind-part is supposed to make the game more spooky/darker. But the effect is pretty much the same if you'd use a flashlight. You can basically still see. So right now I wouldn't recommend it.

Look. Now we have a Robocop:

I've quit treating the cat's paw (he hated the loaking-insoda-treatment so he really started to distrust me ). His toe looks better now. So I hope I've managed to avoid having to bring him to the vet.

I do feel tired. I intended to finish watching a movie last night, but I noticed I started to fall asleep, so I missed the ending. (the movie was called Ex Machina, also about a robot).

Sweet dreams tea rofl Tea has theine which is comparable to cafeine but just has a lower dosage in tea than it does compared to cafeine coffee. So in theory it should keep you awake.

I think I'm (and Christopher is) close to reaching the end of Prey. He could have chose an alternative ending already, but decided to push on to find more answers.

Is Ryder male or female? Did you ever try to find a 'which mass effect character are you?' type of quiz?

Our strawberry plants in the garden) are 'taking off' thanks to the heat. We've already spotted strawberries, but they're still in the green stage. I hope they'll make it before the weather changes again. Strawberries really need some warm weather (and water too, but we can just water them regularly) to thrive. Last year we had bad luck with our garden due to the weather. It was pretty cold and wet. We didn't have a lot of strawberries and we didn't have a lot of green beans.

I took the dog for a pretty long walk despite the heat and he behaved pretty well. Unfortunately he still does tend to take some initiative when he sees a dog. But he does walk along again (he doesn't stick to them like glue). That's progress. That would be off leash of course. When he's on leash he is much better. No crazy enthousiastic reactions upon spotting dogs. He'll just keep walking.
Of course the warm weather should help with all of that. Lower energy.

We had guests over today, they wanted to go to the book market with my parents. And the weather is still great, so the we could sit outside and the dog could be with us. And he was behaving wonderfully mrgreen Exactly the way you'd want (at least we'd want) the dog to behave: calm, just sniffing around nearby and walking to us/one of the guests and one lick and leaning. Just friendly. No crazy jumping, no crazy wagging tail all over the place. A cuddler.
