een jaar later

vorig jaar rond deze tijd kwam hij bij ons wonen
een 4 maanden oude pup die we de naam Splinter gaven
nu, een jaar later, kunnen we ons bijna niet meer voorstellen
hoe het gezinsleven was zonder hem
Splinter, bijna 1,5 jaar oud en 4 kg zwaarder dan toen hij kwam
ruim 10 kg geluk!

one year later

last year around this time he came to live with us
a 4 month old puppy we gave the name Splinter
now, a year later, we can hardly imagine 
what family life was without him
Splinter, nearly 1,5 years old and 4 kg heavier than when he came
over 10 kg of happiness!

  1. I think I know how you feel about Mr. Splinter, I had the same feelings about my amber companion, may you be blessed with each others company for many happy years to come... and I'm suddenly reminded of Marjorie Garber quote: "The dogs in our lives, the dogs we come to love and who (we fervently believe) love us in return, offer more than fidelity, consolation, and companionship. They offer comedy, irony, wit, and a wealth of anecdotes, the 'shaggy dog stories' and 'stupid pet tricks' that are commonplace pleasures of life. They offer, if we are wise enough or simple enough to take it, a model for what it means to give your heart with little thought of return. Both powerfully imaginary and comfortingly real, dogs act as mirrors for our own beliefs about what would constitute a truly humane society. Perhaps it is not too late for them to teach us some new tricks."

  2. mooi portret van Splinter, de foto's alleen al tonen hoe blij jullie zijn met hem en ook dat hij zich helemaal thuis en happy voelt bij jullie, da's mooi, x

  4. Splinter is a handsome boy who looks very much in love with you too!

  5. I fell in love with splinter! so cute!! :-)

  6. Oh, so cute dog♥ But, I have to admit that I'm afraid of dogs... I´m allways afaid, that they would bite me or something... But that fear doesn't stop me thinking, that dogs are cute. Specially this dog. =))

  7. I have this weekness for animals I really cant help myself they melt me inside with their cuteness and Splinter is really melting me......he is sooo cute what breed is he I love the wiry ruffs around his muzzle and his cute little sausage dog body. is he a mix?
    That last image by the way needs to be printed and added to the family portrait wall.

    Could we have more Splinter images please Miss Patrice??

    2. dear Helen,
      he is no mix but
      a red wirehaired dachshund standard
      and the best dog ever!

    3. please excuse my ignorance dear Patrice!
      I have done my research and they look like they are really lovely family dogs but I do believe that Splinter has the best display of muzzle 'wire' Ive seen (on the internet!) ;)
