The Borrowed Dog – Our Canine Adventures

The farmer on whose land our cottage stands, has a dog called Kira. A labrador (probably no pure breed) who is completely free of any training but full of personality and spunk, Kira is now ours for a few hours every weekend. We try to make her walk on the leash and see how we are all doing with a dog.

It has been great fun and a very good opportunity getting to know an animal more intimately.

    Kira suits you perfectly, and after all isn’t Kira a scent from xerjoff as well?

    Kira is gorgeous, be careful not to love her too much, but what a wonderful idea to discover the life with an animal, step by step…..lovely!!!

    • Olfactoria says:

      Thanks, Florence! We are lucky Kira is “available for rent”. 😉
      I think she relishes all the attention too.

        I think dog renting is an excellent idea. There are well trained, patient dogs used in nursing care facilities and trauma dogs, after all – I would love to rent a nice dog for a Sunday afternoon walk and fetch session. There’s a starter company for someone 🙂 Kira is a darling, glad you are enjoying having a sweet dog to practice on!

    What a great idea! And conveniently, a dog of the same type/nature as you were thinking of, right there to borrow! 🙂 hope you all have fun with her 🙂

    I agree with others that this was a fabulous idea. The perfect way to try out being dog owners and take the stress out of the final decision.

    You look good with a dog in tow B!

    • Olfactoria says:

      Yes, I definitely feel less pressured now.

      I look a lot less good when Kira decides she wants to take off in hot pursuit of a wandering cat, trailing me along and showing the world who leads whom on that leash. 😉

    Lovely dog and lovely countryside. Looking good!

    I’m very impressed, Birgit. I remember one or more of your readers recommending that you do something along these lines, and now you’re doing it! And I quite agree with Tara: you look good with a dog in tow! Kira is a beauty, very sweet and smiley (dogs can look smiley, can’t they?).

    The second picture is just magical!

    Kira does perfectly complete the family and the country look. Maybe a lab is the way to go!
