Sunday state of mind

I've been pretty busy with work and everything for the past three weeks and I haven't had a decent nights sleep for a while. As I was getting a bit zombie-like, this weekend I decided to sleep off some of the accumulated sleep debt.

I have to tell you, it feels so good to sleep!

As I haven't posted anything during this time, here's a short video of Fire dozing off at our office. That's pretty much how I've felt for the past three weeks.

Here's to a lazy sunday!

Some random photos of Fire

Few weeks ago I went through about 5000 photos of Fire from the past 2 and a half years. I wanted to find some fun photos of him to send to his "mommy".

These are few from the bunch that I send.



This is one of the first test photos I've taken with my new Olympus OM-D E-M5 and M. Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2.0 lens combo.

Happy birthday: Fire turns 3


Today is Fire's third birthday, he's officially an adult now. Can't believe it has already been 2 and a half years since I took the trip to Frankfurt and came home with this little furry monster.

Happy birthday Fire!

My little puppy is turning 1 year old today! Can’t believe it! As a birthday gift we went to one of his favorite places: the pet store. He got his favorite sausages, a new toy and a new juicy bone.

A lot has happened since the beginning of march when I flew to Frankfurt to first meet him. Fire has grown from a tiny, little bit shy Aussie gentleman to all grown up, confident Aussie heartbreaker. He has made a ton of new friends and got to experience his first summer. He has learned a ton of new tricks and sniffed a ton of butts. As a dog and a friend, I couldn’t be more happy with how everything has gone so far with Fire. Big thanks for all of this goes to his human mother for such a great upbringing and for continues support and tips.

Here are few photos of Fire:

Everyone, meet Fire

This little cutie is my 5 month old red merle Australian Shepherd puppy. He’s such a gentleman! Fire arrived today with me from Frankfurt where I went to visit his Mom and got to know him little better. We took an early flight back to Helsinki, spend the day getting acquainted with his new home and surroundings and of course, napping.

Right now I’m totally exhausted with everything, so, I’ll write more about him later.
