puppies

We got puppies <3

Last Saturday morning our french bulldog got four puppies! We have been waiting and waiting, now finally they are here ❤

IMG_0556Tursday and friday we were basically staring at her constantly so we knew exactly when the water broke to have everything under control. The race french bulldog have very small hips and someone have to take Cesarean. We made an agreement with the veterinarian to drive to her when the water breaks, in case she needed a Cesarean. We went to her 04.20 and Phebe was pushing, but nothing came out so unfortunately we had to do the surgery. Everything went perfectly fine, and when we saw the puppies, we understood why she couldn’t give natural birth, one of the puppies were a giant! There was 4 beautiful mini frenchies and we are so happy!

Two of the puppies were very small and had trouble with the sucking reflects. We fed them with bottle and one of them got the sucking reflex right after short time so she could eat her mothers milk right away. The other were a bit slower, but when she got the reflex right, she couldn’t let go of her mother, now she is so healthy and chubby like they suppose to be.IMG_0610

After 3 days, one puppy stopped eating, she become weaker and we had to start giving her bottlefeed. She ate, but not as much as we wanted, she barely gained weight and her skin became so pale. We were very worried and called the veterinarian. We made an appointment with her for this morning to give her a vitamin shot, it’s not so much else you can do when they are this small.  This night my boyfriend woke me up at 05 a’clock and she was no longer with us. We did what we could, but unfortunately it is very common that a puppy dies before they are two weeks old. We named her Scarlet ❤IMG_0632

We are so sad, and this it is harder then i thought i would be, our baby girl is gone. Phoebe were searching for her for a few hours, but i kept taking her back to the her puppy grind, and now she seems fine. Luckily the three others are healthy and good. So we really hope they don’t get sick and leave us too. We are watching them closely, i took days off work to take care of them. We also check the during the night. The mother is tired but in good shape, we were a bit afraid that she got the milk fever because she was so hot and were breathing heavy. We are giving her some milk to get the calcium level up, during the pregnancy she have been eating puppy food for extra nutrients and she is still eating that. She is better and we give her just as much attention as the puppies. She really trust us with them and we can stay close when we want.

They are so adorable ❤ We try to focus on the babies that’s left so we don’t have to feel so sad all the time.

Norwegian landscape, Italian food and a french bulldog.

That caption pretty much sums up my life!

Last week i was in Oslo. It is so nice to go there and see my friends every 2-3month. In Oslo i can work a little, so it is business and pleasure -a perfect combination in this situation.

i was up early to take the bus at 07:00 in the morning….was basically still sleeping behind those shades.

I get easily headaches from strong scented perfume, so i can only wear mild perfumes/eau de toilette, so i wear scents like: Clean -Fresh cotton, Jennifer Aniston (she only have one i think), Tommy Hilfiger -Tommy girl and sometimes Lancomé -Miracle. Two of my favorite scents are Burberry London and The beat, but i almost only wear them in the summer..

At the airport i went by a cosmetic shop. I was looking for a good hand cream with a mild sent and a body butter consistence. I always have so dry hands, and want something that really works. The woman in the shop tried to help me, but she didn’t  understand that i couldn’t use the ones with strong perfume even when i told her twice. So i found a hand cream from Clarins that i decided to buy.IMG_0542 Meanwhile the saleswoman wanted me to try a perfume she meant was mild enough for me, though i didn’t ask for a perfume, she sprayed it on my wrist -it felt like everything landed in my nose. I told her that it was a big problem for me to wear perfumes that strong and she showed me the toilet sign.. in the end i washed my wrist a thousand times, but when i got on the plane i already got a bad headache. The perfume was also on my sweater so on the plane i sat with my hand behind my back to try to block the smell, haha.. retard me! For all those of you who work in shops like this: please don’t spray perfume on people like me, i don’t like headaches.

It is so cliché, but i always find it so “amazing” when I’m up in the sky looking down. So like every time i am taking a plane, i take photos.. this time no exception. Here in north everything is white, while in south its already melted and it is spring.

I got to do a lot while i was there, lunches, dinners, clients, shopping, movie with my bestie. If i had more time i would to meet more of my friends, but it is not possible to have time for everything:/

A mix of Italian starters and italian beer

I went to this Italian restaurant “Olivia” in Oslo. The quality of the food is good and the restaurant is really nice, but they don’t “understand” the portion size compared to real Italian food, witch irritates me, i know -i’m weird. I guess it is because we eat with our eyes as well as our mouth, and i expect the dishes to be bigger because i compare it with dishes i’ve eaten before -probably in Italy though.

Ooh, i am gonna get so fat when i return to Rome and mediterranean food, witch is in about 3 months. We have not sat an exact date, but after 12 weeks, is the first possibility to go, unless we decide to stay a little longer. In august we will go to a wedding in Hungary, so it is best to be in Rome before that so we can leave the dogs at Federico’s parents while we are there.

About returning, to return home to my hearts after a trip to Oslo is always the best thing about going away. My baby girl Phebe is expecting puppies anytime soon! Due date is actually tomorrow, so we are very excited! She is not so big as i though she would be, but still there is three babies in that belly ❤ But a least the dairy is started, so it is milk enough for all tree (hopefully more)..

She enjoyed some sun outside on the terrace today ❤ Day 62 of 63! The last days of the dogs pregnancy the lunges of the puppies get fully developed (puppies that are born earlier then 58 days will be still-born or die within the first days), so i am happy to know that they are physically ready to come out!

I am happy to have shared 3 years with this girl, and maaaany more years to come! I am basically becoming a grandmother so i am stressed, happy, anxious scared and very very excited 😀 Proud of my girl ❤

Weekend in Tromsø

2 weeks ago i were in Oslo, and last weekend i were in Tromsø, so nice to get away from this little village for a bit.  Tromsø is a beautiful city in the north. It’s packed with tourists that wants a glimt of the northern light and the raw nature..

I went to Tromsø with my french bulldog Phebe. I had booked a room i a nice hotel in the center, so we could easy go where we wanted. The reason why i went without my boyfriend and the other dog, was because we were gonna meet a male french bulldog. Hopefully the result is gonna be puppies, lots of puppies! but i’m trying to not get my hopes too much up 😉 We will not know the result before 19 days.. too long time to wait.

They were so cute together!! Got along from the beginning and cried when we went back to the hotel, they met 3 times and it was sad to leave every time. I just wanted to take him with me, super adorable and such a gentleman to my baby girl ❤ I miss him already!

Phebe is use too being at hotels and honestly, i think she really likes it. I’m the kind of dog owner that need to have my fur babies close to me, so they always sleep in our bed 😛

We went there on Friday morning and stayed to Sunday.. I love hotel breakfast and it was especially good at this hotel! But i was too busy choosing my breakfast, so no pictures were taken… The only “bad” thing about the hotel was that they didn’t have room service, i was mentally prepared to eat dinner in bed while waiting movies, so that sucked..

Friday evening i went out with friends, and had a great tapas dinner!
