Golden Retriever puppy 2 weeks old


Our Golden Retriever puppies are now two weeks old. They are growing very fast and are in excellent health. At two weeks a major development for puppies is the opening of the eyes and first very clumsy steps. The puppies are strong enough to explore space around them within 1 meter.

Mind you getting so far from the pack and mum means major drama, and once they realise they are too far major alarms are given – lots of puppy squealing. Some of them try to bark already and the biggest pups even mastered a form of growling.

They are so incredibly cute it is hard to leave them alone. I think their adorable looks and behaviours justify well the term “puppy love”.

Hooded man in a dark alley


There are certain fashion trends that make me really uneasy. One of them would be the super dark glasses, which make eye contact during conversation impossible. Another fashion trend is to wear the hoodie everywhere. I think it is the lack of identifiable human feature that make these hooded tops look rather unfriendly.

Just look at this photograph of a young man in a dark alley in his dark cloths and headed covered with the hood. Is this an inviting scene? Would you venture behind him into this alley?
