Leader of the human pack

Hello, beautiful! I'm the leader of this human pack. Your female is my aunt. Adults are my slaves, I've got them wrapped around my finger.
I hope you don't mind if I grab your long nose, it looks interesting.
Adults always try to educate me, this time on how dogs should be treated...
...but I know what's important: a good hold of anything that wags!
I think I want a dog of my own.
(Sisu will have his first birthday party next week. I think we'll settle for a stuffed dog for now...)

One snowy day

This has been the snowiest winter in Helsinki since the early 1980's. It was also cold and Eläintarhanlahti (Eläintarha bay) froze over. Since it's only a 10 minutes walk from us, and since it's not illegal to allow Tara to run on ice, she got plenty of exercise. Shame the weather wasn't always postcard-like...

After a good run she made it very, very clear she wants to go home. Right. Now.

Here's the reason why: a 100% wool blanket and a warm radiator.
