……..I think it’s time to have a brake from my blog and maybe come back later.

It is hard to write………

In the meantime…..check me out at instagram, my handle is:  @anitathuna

I may not post every single day there, but almost…….. so feel free to follow me……. Power to the instagrammers.


Villa K9

I have been busy lately…….if you wonder why I haven’t posted anything. To say that the house have been crowded is an understatement. But oh so happy we are……these dogs put a smile on your face. You will find me and Bella under

Big Sur-05058

After our first guest Baylee, came Big Sur…….and he had a very fitting name, he was HUGE. And he really listen so good when I called him out………SIR 🙂  Bella was the ham hanging there in front of the camera as usual.

Big Sur-05060

Everybody commented on his paws, they where massiv. But what a great personality, so gentle even that it felt like hurricane went thru the house when he wanted to play with Bella.

Bella HAD to eat his food……..

And of course……he liked Bellas food better….go figure 🙂

Charlie Brown-05080

as soon as big Sur went home this big bear named Charlie Brown moved in…….he is 10 year old but act like a little puppy.

I decided to try to make a portrait here in front of my window, where the light is good, of every dog that visit, I missed out on Big Sur and Baylee but they will be back so I’ll catch them next time.

It’s a hard life to live like you are 3 when you’re 10, lucky we have nice cold floors to chill on after running around in the summer heat.

Watching the gate is a busy job, and everybody that pass will be greeted with a bark.


Lola…..a tiny little German Shephard that was so scared the first hours, she was jumping in to the cage while I was trying to get the bed in there. We left it like that and after a couple of hours she came out for a pee…….

and she could not resist the smelling game….


Yeeeeeaaaa……we got your portrait little Lola. And Rita found the song with your name….. Lola at Cobacabana or something like that…..we liked to sing and dance for you.

Is that a bear in our garden?

Charlie……I think your name should be Big Bear!!


Our neighbors dog Boo hanged here watching the other dogs play………… I’ll invite you next time poor Boo!

It has been a difficult time to blog, maybe I just needed this brake……..or I need more time. Whatever it is …..bear with me……I’ll be back. Today was the doctor visit to get a shot of cortison in my bad knee so I can start walking again. After the visit I decided to go to a trail close to the doctors building, to take some pictures and check it out for future walks. I have signed up for dog care business!! We have something called dogvacay people can find their dog sitter while away thru daytime or over the night. And of course……if you invite a dog to your home you need to take the necessary walks too. I’m home during weekends anyway, so why not get Bella a playmate/date and have some fun. Some updates on the subject might be here pretty soon I think 🙂 trail-04391 On this trail it is common to bring your horse too and it is nice to see that they don’t only provide water but also somewhere to keep your horse while taking a brake. trail-04400

Elijahs memorial

Yesterday was one of my toughest days ever.
The memorial for Elijah Ward, who was Sashas boyfriend, was at Aliso Beach at sunset.

Elijahs mom Stacie asked me if I could take the pictures and of course I would, it was an honor for me, and also a way to celebrate Elijah who was an aspiring photographer himself. He and I often talked about photography and Sasha used to complain that I kept her boyfriend away from her 🙂
I took pictures, wiped my tears,  wiped the fog off the camera, wiped more tears and kept taking pictures, collecting memories for Elijahs family.

I am especially grateful that we had such a beautiful sunset, Elijahs favorite time of the day was sunset and he took a lot of those beautiful sunflare pictures, I want to honor him and his moms Stacie and Megan with a sunset picture that remind us of him.
You can see his work at instagram  @elijah_ward.
Rest in peace Elijah, you where taken far too soon.
