This past week I have lived the lazy life and just enjoyed my time here on the countryside of Austria. One of the best things on earth is spending your time together with people you love – or animals! My derpy, but super cute dog Mia is on vacation with me and I’m spoiling her as much as I can. You might think I’m crazy but I absolutely enjoy cooking for her, even if I don’t like preparing a meal for myself. If you own a dog, you also have to deal with a lot of other responsibilities: Walking her regularly is crucial. Especially a breed like her (she’s a Vizsla, a Hungarian Pointer) needs extended walks during the day. I’m not sure why, but usually she’s super easy to handle and isn’t demanding anything except cuddles back home. In fact she’s quite calm and relaxed, but sure she enjoys being outside and running off leash, too, which I do at least once a day with her. To spice up her walk, she loves to fetch and she’s quite experienced with it. Mia is a typical university student’s dog: She loves to sleep in and won’t wake up by herself before 10am anyways, and what could be better than going for a long walk in the late morning when the sun is already up and shining in your face? Nothing. Well, this all sounds like a dream, right?
Since I’m not in California anymore, the weather here isn’t so gracious but as a dog owner, you have to deal with rainy weather on a very regular basis. Coming to that, my life savers are definitely my shoes so my feet won’t get wet, even on the longest walks. Fortunately, there are a lot of choices and rain boots that are totally fashionable. You can either go for the classic rain boot (like this one here, I own them too) or a short version of it like here. Rain boots come in many colors and patterns. You don’t have to own a dog to put on your boots. You don’t even have to be a nature loving person. You can just pull them off by wearing skinny jeans, a trenchcoat and a leather bag like this one (cravings…) and plan a little shopping trip in the city to treat yourself or the people you love. With christmas coming up, I’m sure there are a lot of reasons to do that anyways. And if you want to calm down a bit, put on your boots, take your dog if you have one and enjoy the nature with all your pores.
Merry christmas to all of you!
