Finally the swimming season has started!

Look at those happy faces! Only a few weeks ago, in early May, the world around us was still blah. Everything was still dead. Brown. Beige. Cold. But as always, when you start to get restless about the never-ending cold, everything suddenly explodes into bright greens. Since...

The dog life sketchbook

Most of my sketchbook pages appear on, my art/illustration website, but as dogs were sneaking more and more into my work, I decided to start an extra notebook for dog sketches and doodles. See it as drawing out loud. Random thoughts quickly scribbled down. Some play....

Geocaching with dogs in Europe,

2023 goal: finding 100 geocaches

It was a random day in the middle of the week, only a few weeks ago, when I checked the Geocaching website and discovered that there were a lot more caches than I initially thought- since we're living outside of a very quiet village. It...

Our favorite dog harnesses (and what we use them for)

It wasn't that long ago that I wasn't a fan of harnesses. At the time, the city was our daily environment and we were constantly searching for space to let the dogs run free, play, and run. Harnesses, I thought, only make dogs pull more,...

Nature reserve Lovenhoek, Belgium

Belgium, we still love you! And perhaps even more after some wonderful walks we did recently. When we still lived in Belgium, we barely ever visited nature reserves, mainly because we constantly looked for places where our dogs could run off-leash. These days we have a different...
