back in may my family was here for ten days. that is, my parents and older brother with his wife and daughters. younger brother and girlfriend had exams so we missed out on their company. still, it was absolutely lovely. one of the days we went to a nearby kibbutz where there are different animals for the kids to pet. it's a beautiful little place.
this summer in denmark we met the new little dog of my nieces. his name is alvin and he is adorable (for some reason i don't have any photos of him, and any way i didn't get around to go through my photos from denmark).
now our boys started talking about a dog. and i think i'm quite against it. i think they are too young and it's too much work and responsibility. if we'd had one from before they were born, but that would have been a different story.
on the other hand, having a dog does appeal to me. we have perfect surroundings for it, living here in the countryside. and i must admit that after the break ins we had in the spring, it makes me wonder if a dog would make us feel a bit safer.
what do you think?
