Too much to mention ...

A lot of time passed since I wrote the last blog entry about Orion. My partner's prolapse and the Operation was the main topic from the beginning of April to the end of May. Then she had to recover and to undergo physiotherapy, meanwhile we tried to get all the necessary papers from various countries to get the permission to get married in Austria. Orion was with us and walked and fed as usual. He had his ups and downs and his regular diarrhoea-attacks. He was with us at the marriage and on honeymoon.

We went to Norway and he enjoyed rushing out of the door onto the veranda and climbing rocks, running for his tennis ball and swimming in the sea. He regained his confidence in his swimming after he had lost it when he almost drowned in the new Danube in July. I went to rescue him after only his nose was visible above the water surface.

The three weeks in Norway passed way too fast and we went back to Austria again using car and train. Orion and Mischa made sure we had a cabin of our own with 6 seats to use for sleeping.

After another week on vacation in Vienna I went to the army and Orion decided to shake hands with death. His stomach turned, but as I had read about the symptoms and Ine's first dog had died from it, we rushed to the nearest animal hospital and 30 minutes later Orion was operated, the stomach turned back again and the next day we found a very skinny dog with a giant scar that was too weak to stand for more than 3 minutes but barked as he demanded to play. We took him back home after 3 days and you can still see the areas where he was shaved. He recovered quickly and his appetite was better than ever. His hyperventilation - something we almost got used to - was gone and soon he played again.

So far to the short summary of the summer 2011 for Orion. Now we have to move a lot of furniture and stuff from Ine's flat to our's, organise a family Christmas celebration and a New Year’s Eve party. Than we have to clear the flat and return the keys by the end of January 2012

This was the preview of the coming months and I hope I'll have more time to write then and to post some of the hundreds of pictures I took of Orion so far.
