Sick dog..

I haven’t been that active here these last couple of days, because I have a sick dog at home.

On Saturday Oracle started having some problems with her stomach and since then she has been sick. My husband and I have been taking turns going out with her, both day and night. And yesterday Oracle was with my husband at work so I could go to campus for a lecture. Zelda was alone at doggie daycare, but it went really well and she was so good.

Today I am staying home with both dogs. I don’t want to leave them home alone and yesterday is the first day Oracle actually ate something. Right now she is laying beside me on the sofa sleeping. She seeks closeness all the time and I am just trying to be here for her.

This morning my husband took her out for a quick walk while I gave Zelda her breakfast. Oracle is eating food that is gentle for her tummy so she can’t eat her usually dog food. When Oracle came inside she walked around for a bit and then she tried to poop, so I got up to get her out again, but she sat down on the rug in the living room and pulled her self forward with her butt pressed against the rug. She left a brown mark after her. I was not pleased, but not angry at her. She is sick. So I called my husband who had just left and he came back and cleaned up the rug while I walked both dogs outside.

It feels like Oracle is getting better, but I still want to keep an eye on her and that’s why I am staying home today. I don’t want to leave her with anyone else.

Now I am going to try to get some studying done before I need to take the dogs outside again.

Have an amazing day!

Love, Nea

Situation Sunday, October 14

So a lot of things are spinning in my head. So much has happened these last few weeks. It feels like the world is in chaos. With the extreme weather situation around the world. Judge Kavanaugh being sworn into office.

I am starting to wonder what is happening? I thought something like this would never happen after #MeToo. I am not claiming to be the best judge of things like this but I am surprised at the outcome of the vote. But I have read that many more people have become registered to vote in Novembers election.

Like you know, I don’t live in America. But this still affected me. We have #MeToo here in Sweden and I am scared that the change we need is not coming. At least not as fast as we want it to. I hate being afraid to walk alone at night. I want to feel safe in this world.

The weather around the world is also making me scared. I don’t remember there being as much extreme weather when I grew up. It feels like no one is really taking the situation seriously. IPCC has realised their 2018 report, but I have not read about it anywhere. But now that I googled it, some information came up.

I am trying to think more about what I am buying, like organic food and to have bags with me when I go grocery shopping. And to not wast things. I donate my clothes to people how need them when I can’t wear them anymore. And I try to not buy useless things. We eat vegetarian food at least once a week. I walk to the store instead of taking the car. I know I can do so much more and I am trying to be better.

What are you doing for the world to be better? Both for the people and the environment?

On another note. I missed World Mental Health day, but I am writing a post about that and posting it later.

This post was more ranting than anything else and I am sorry for that. I just want to share my concerns about the world.
