Everyone, meet Ragnar!Greti’s heart melted instantly when she saw the cute little furball. We have been talking for a long while about getting pets as soon as we move to the house. The initial plan was to get two dogs (Ragnar and Freyja) and a cat (Loki). Seconds after seeing the pup myself I knew there would be no way to convince Greti not to adopt the poor fella. We asked the neighbours around us if anyone might’ve lost the little puppy, but none of them knew if he had a master. So we took him inside, fed him and spend most of the Sunday playing with him. Ragnar seemed to have dropped on our doorstep knowing that we as new homesteaders we’ll need a trusty dog.
Taking care of our new puppyIn less than 1 minute we were both calling him Ragnar. I guess in a way that’s how we confirmed to each other that we saw him as our future dog. Needless to say, Ragnar was crazy hungry, so we fed him well (maybe too well) and we brought it back to our apartment. On Monday we took Ragnar to the vet and started his vaccines and all that. If at first, I dreaded the idea of taking my dog outside every single day, I quickly realised that I actually enjoy it. I remember being amazed by how much energy I was having all of a sudden. I enjoyed teaching him tricks and shooting awesomely cute slow motion puppy videos.
Back to present dayRagnar is now a medium sized 7-month-old amazingly cute dog. He finished all his vaccines and he’s actually bound to be neutered sometime in November. About two months back we switched him to the raw food diet. This did wonders to his fur. It got a lot softer, longer and darker. Ragnar is actually so black I often can’t shoot photos of him, he turns into a dark spot.
