  • Feeling a lot better!

    04 Juni 2010

    On Thursday Fabrizio received an injection. He seems to have caught some bad bacterial infection somewhere and the antibiotics worked almost immediately. A few hours later he felt much better and was his adorable self again. So, at the moment we are taking...

  • An unspectacular Sunday and awaiting Benjas visit...Thanks for the new camera Granny and Grandad!

    06 Juni 2010

    Benja is coming at 15:00. It's nice and sunny outside, but we have to take it slowly with Fabrizio. His nose is still running quite a bit and he has to take his tablets for another week...this morning he was extremely silly though. "Leave my stick alone...

    12 Juni 2010

  • Little Red Hunting DOT!

    30 Juni 2010

    Just like Ilka sometimes does with Fabrizios uncle, we are making Fabrizio chase after the red dot of a laserpointer. Ilka warned us though, that we should not do it too often, because they do tend to become real JUNKIES. Well Ilka, you are right!!! All...

  • No Puppy School anymore!

    04 Juli 2010

    Although Fabrizio is only 4 months and one week old, he has moved on to proper school and he seems to enjoy this kind of school much, much more. He never really fancied playing with pups and young dogs of other breeds. Somehow the Spinone-Italiano seems...

  • A new weight record

    13 März 2011

    We weighed Fabrizio about a month ago for the show at Rheinberg and back then he weighed in at 37kg. To be honest, we thought he was a little out of form and a just a teeny bit "flabby". In the mean time we reduced the amount of food he's fed. On Wednesday...

  • Mission Suicide!

    01 Januar 2013

  • Benja leaves and the Tooth Fairy comes

    15 Juni 2010

    Unfortunately, Benja is leaving us this evening. The 10 days went by much too soon. Not only Fabrizio will miss Benjas very cool demeanor. It's nice having her, because she shares our responsability to watch over Fabrizio and keep him out of harms way...

  • Stinging Nettle and a deer...

    12 Juni 2010

  • Fighting the sudden heat wave...

    02 Juli 2010

    The past week has been pretty unspectacular. The sudden, but very late outbreak of summer is really taxing on us all. Although Fabrizio is Italian in origin, he seems to suffer even more than we do. Most of the day he is very lethargic. He suddenly becomes...
