Dog Day in Catania

Last weekend a Dog Day was organized in Catania. Here your dog could meet other dogs, participate in competitions, you could adopt dogs and also buy different products for dogs. Jack Londons best friend Billy participated in two categories: all dogs and breed. Of course Billy won both of them. He is the black and white Border Collie in the last photos.

The association who organized the event was very good and so typical sicilian. They are very aware of the animal protection issues here and also that people starts to wake up. Here in Sicily they speak clearly, in a way you can not speak in Scandinavia, but I like the sicilian way much better. They said out loud that we people do harm againt animals and we are to blame if e.g. our dog is aggressive. Animals are a joy to people and has to be treated well. People who treat animals badly does not deserve to live on earth. It is time to wake up people! Now! And remember that dog fights are organized by the mafia and if you bring your dog there and bet your money there, you are worse than mafia! Mamma mia, speaking like this in Scandiavia. LOL! It was a great event and more events are planned. Next time also Jack London will participate.



F?rra helgen anordnades en dag f?r hundar i Catania. H?r kunde din hund kan tr?ffa andra hundar, delta i t?vlingar, adoptera hundar och ocks? k?pa olika produkter f?r hundar. Jack Londons b?sta v?n Billy deltog i tv? t?vlingskategorier: alla hundar och hundras. Naturligtvis vann Billy dem b?da. Han ?r den svartvita Border Collien i de sista bilderna.
F?reningen som organiserade evenemanget var mycket bra och s? typiskt sicilianska. De ?r mycket medvetna problemen med djurskydd h?r och ?ven att folk b?rjar vakna. H?r p? Sicilien de talar tydligt, p? ett s?tt du inte kan tala i Skandinavien, men jag gillar det sicilianska s?ttet mycket b?ttre. De sa h?gt att vi m?nniskor skadar djur och vi ?r att skyldiga om t.ex. v?r hund ?r aggressiv. Djur ?r en gl?dje f?r m?nniskor och m?ste behandlas v?l. M?nniskor som behandlar djuren illa f?rtj?nar inte att leva p? jorden. Det ?r dags att vakna upp m?nniskor! Nu! Och kom ih?g att hundkamper organiseras av maffian och om du tar med din hund dit och satsa dina pengar d?r, ?r du v?rre ?n maffian! Mamma mia, t?nk de skulle tala s?h?r i Skandiavien. LOL ! Det var ett mycket bra evenemang och fler ?r planerade. N?sta g?ng kommer ocks? Jack London att delta.

Pick up your shit!

We are a group of dog owners who meet in a park once or twice a day where we train our dogs and dogs can play with eachother. It is also a nice new social circle for us. We keep us far away from the kids who are playing in the playground and made our own rules. Some days ago a note came up to keep clean after our dogs and yes that is correct. We have to pick up our shit, it is not nice to leave dog poo in a park where kids play, or anywhere else where people are present. Most of us do clean up! And the issue is not that big anyway. But then you look at these families coming to the park and they throw plastics all over the park, cigarettes, sometimes even dipers and much more. For some dog poo it takes just couple of days to vanish in to the natural ecosystem, but plastics takes 350 years!



Vi ?r en grupp hund?gare som tr?ffas i en park en eller tv? g?nger om dagen d?r vi tr?nar v?ra hundar och hundarna kan leka med varandra. Det ?r ocks? en trevlig ny umg?ngeskrets f?r oss. Vi h?ller oss l?ngt borta fr?n barnen som leker p? lekplatsen och gjort v?ra egna regler. F?r n?gra dagar sedan kom en lapp upp att h?lla rent efter hundarna och ja, det ?r helt korrekt. Vi m?ste plocka upp v?ran skit, det ?r inte trevligt att l?mna hundbajs i en park d?r barnen leker, eller n?gon annanstans d?r m?nniskor ?r n?rvarande. De flesta av oss plockar upp! Och problemet ?r inte s? stort ?nd?. Men d? tittar man p? dessa familjer som kommer till parken och de kastar plast ?ver hela parken, cigaretter, ibland till och med bl?jor och mycket mer. F?r hundbajs det tar bara n?gra dagar att f?rsvinna in i det naturliga ekosystem, men plast tar 350 ?r!

Dog Insurances in Italy…

Well, after we got the new family member of course we started to look for dog insurances. Got a quite big surprice that italian insurances offers only insurances that covers damage against a third part, meaning if the dog hurts another animal or person. Nowhere is to be found insurances that covers Vet. bills, illness, surgery, travel costs and other “normal” things. We are now looking for an international insurance where the “normal” things are always covered and damage against third person is just a side note.

I do not know how to translate this; if Italy is way behind in these things or if the damage against third part is a hudge issue and says alot of pet owners here. For me it was a big shock to see only one type of insurance.

Little Jack London


N?v?l, efter att vi f?tt den nya familjemedlem b?rjade vi naturligtvis leta efter hundf?rs?kringar. Fick en ganska stor ?verraskning att italienska f?rs?kringar erbjuder endast f?rs?kringar som t?cker skador mot tredje part, vilket inneb?r att om hunden skadar ett annat djur eller m?nniska. Ingenstans g?r att finna f?rs?kringar som t?cker Vet. r?kningar, sjukdom, kirurgi, resekostnader och andra “vanliga” saker. Vi s?ker nu en internationell f?rs?kring d?r de “normala” sakerna ?r alltid t?ckta och skador mot tredje person ?r bara en sidoanteckning.
Jag vet inte hur man ?vers?tter detta, om Italien ?r l?ngt efter i dessa saker, eller om skadan mot tredje part ?r ett stort problem och det s?ger mycket av djur?gare h?r. F?r mig var det en stor chock att se endast en typ av f?rs?kring.
