Being a beta tester …

WordPress (& Android) just invited me to beta-test the new app. So here I am… although what I’m going to post about is still a mystery…

I could talk about selling the old house, buying a new place and the whole moving experience. 🚚

I could talk about the joys of family – near and far. Alternatively the pettiness of family, both near and far. On second thoughts let’s just leave that one alone 🤔

The dogs continue to be a great source of joy (and frustration!). Here they are in the forest today!

The older (lighter) one Perry is barking at me. I’m fairly certain this is a command to hurry up and take the picture!

Home life is interesting and just got a lot more musical with a turntable arriving in the house. In this day of Spotify and instant music everywhere I think it will be a nice change to start playing LP’s again.

In honour of this, I’ve found what could well be my new favourite shop – Black & White Records in Hakaniemi ❤

Now I’m done with testing. I will say editing pictures and returning to the post isn’t particularly intuitive and it’s always difficult to continue typing text after adding a picture at the foot of the text….

We have a well travelled dog!

Perry making himself comfortable on the bench / luggage rack 😏

Doggy day out!


This time we found a trail that Perry and Noa could come along too 👌

My first ever TBT


Sounds a little contagious doesn’t it 😉

I opened my cloud and went back to the first picture that ever made it there.

October 2012: Perry as a pup and on the first day he was an office dog 🙂

First time in the office

First time in the office – hard work!

(It’s also a post to test if my automatic sharing is working or not)

… and the answer is


Paws for Noa

Paws for Noa

For my Names challenge posting I presented the dog tags and asked the question – which dog belongs to which tag?

Now is the big reveal – Noa has the paw print and Perry has the bone! I have spent the last two days trying to manipulate dogs and tags to be all facing the camera at the same time. This is the best I could come up with… 😉

Weekly Photo Challenge: Names


Noa & Perry / Perry & Noa

Noa & Perry / Perry & Noa

Two dogs.
Two leashes.
Two collars.
Two tags.
Two names.

PS: Can you guess which dog belongs to which tag?!

BTW: I’ve caught up on all the weekly photo challenges for 2017 and from now on I’ll be only posting one photo challenge per week 🙂



…. drumroll please!

Noa 🐶

This is what happens…


Home alone

Home alone

… when I go to school!

Perry being posed with look-alike toys…

No misunderstanding this message


I’m pretty certain this is natures way of saying “back off”!

Back where it all started from!

Follow this link and you’ll see where we were 12 months ago! The handsome fellow you see above was our introduction to the Lagotto breed. A special anniversary post dedicated to Perry will follow at some stage shortly. His first birthday is just around the corner 🙂
