Babysitting Little Kenny *** Kenny sam w domu

Moze pamietacie moja notke o zaginionym Chesterze? Coz, mijaja miesiace, a po jamniku naszej sasiadki nie ma sladu… Nie zaprzestala ona jednak poszukiwan, co tydzien wydajac 1000 bs. na ogloszenia w lokalnej prasie i telewizji. Kazdy, kto choc raz posiadal ‘najlepszego przyjaciela’ wie jaka pustka zostaje po jego stracie… Nasza sasiadka przygarnela wiec niedawno szczenie o imieniu Kenny, ktory jeszcze miesiac temy byl kuleczka mieszczaca sie w dloni, a dzis z ciekawoscia odkrywa swiat:)

W zeszlym tygodniu uslyszelismy przerazliwe piski dochodzace z mieszkania sasiadki i kiedy wyszlismy na klatke okazalo sie, ze Kenny zostal sam w domu. Po raz pierwszy. Biedak piszczal, szczekal i plakal przez ponad 2 godziny bez ustanku. Zostawilismy wiec na drzwiach sasiadki notke, ze nastepnym razem, kiedy bedzie musiala zostawic Kennego samego w domu, z radoscia go przygarniemy!

Nasza sasiadka ucieszyla sie z naszej oferty, i wczoraj poznym wieczorem przyniosla malucha, zawinietego w recznik i sweter, do naszego mieszkania.

Przez nastepne 2 godziny czulam sie jak opiekunka do dziecka, probujac wynagrodzic Kennemu rozlake z ‘rodzicem’. Biedny szczeniak tym razem nie plakal, ale bylo mu bardzo smutno. Z tesknoty za swoja Pania, niemal nie opuszczal swojego legowiska, gdzie szukal jej zapachu wwachujac sie w jej sweter. Humor mu sie poprawil, kiedy Freddy wrocil z pracy, i przez chwile razem turlali sie po podlodze. Kiedy przyszla pora kolacji, dalismy mu plasterek szynki na talerzyku i wode w filizance, ale nic nie zjadl… Dobrze mu sie natomiast lezalo na moich kolanach, ogladajac szczekajace psy na Youtube:) Pozniej zas, przydreptal za nami do sypialni gdzie zasnal kolo lozka.

Kenny bardzo sie uradowal, kiedy jego pani po niego wrocila, a ona sama szczesliwa byla, ze bobas nie plakal za nia tak, jak tydzien temu. Ja cieszylam sie natomiast, ze moglam oddac komus taka przysluge, jaka niegdys wyswiadczyla nam ciocia Stasia. Mieszkala ona w naszym domu przez  niemal tydzien, opiekujac sie Misia kiedy rodzice wybrali sie w odwiedziny do siostry! Nigdy nie zapomne, jak mama wowczas narzekala, ze chce juz wracac do domu, bo tam Misia pewnie za nimi teskni. Tesknila, a jakze – tak jak dzieci tesknia za rodzicami. Mama zas po powrocie oswiadczyla, ze juz nigdy nie opusci swojego psa na tak dlugo i jak na razie, skrupulatnie dotrzymuje swojej obietnicy:)

Maybe you remember my post about missing Chester, who got lost without a trace? Our neighbour however haven’t stopped searching for him, every week spending as much as 1000 bs. on notices in the local press and television. Anyone who once was lucky to have ‘best friend’ knows what emptiness brings its loss … And so, our neighbor recently took in a puppy named Kenny, who just a month ago could fit in a palm of my hand and today curiously runs around, discovering the world :)

Last week, we heard shrill screams coming from an apartment of our  neighbor and when we went out to check what is going on, it turned out that Kenny was alone in the home. For the first time in his life… So he squealed, barked and cried for over 2 hours straight. We decided to leave a note on the neighbor’s door saying, that the next time she needs to go out we would be happy to babysit him!

Our neighbor took our offer very happily and yesterday she brought to us Kenny, wrapped in a towel and her sweater.

For the next two hours, I felt like a babysitter again, trying to compensate the absence of Kenny’s ‘parent’. Poor thing didn’t cry but was very sad. He was missing his master so much, that he almost haven’t left his bed, where he could snuggle in her sweater, sniffing her scent. His humour improved when Freddy came back from work, and for a moment they were both happily rolling on the floor. When dinner time came, we gave him a slice of ham on a plate and some water in a cup, but he didn’t touch anything … He enjoyed however lying on my laps, watching the barking dogs on Youtube. Later, he followed us to the bedroom and went to sleep beside our bed.

Kenny was very happy when his master came to collect him, and she was happy to hear that her baby didn’t cry this time. I was also pleased, because I could return a favor, that once our aunt Stasia gave to my family. She lived in our house for almost a week, taking care of Misia, when my parents went away to visit my sister! I’ll never forget how my mother complained back then that she wants to go home, because Misia is missing them. And she had – just as children yearn for their parents. I recall my mom saying, that she would never leave her dog for so long again. And she have kept her promise since:)

    I’ve spent all day working on my aperture and shutter speed in the hope that one day I can get photos as good as yours. Absolutely beautiful pictures and a gorgeous subject.

    Thank you Mandy:) The light is the key and good lens helps a lot when taking pictures in low-light situations. I struggled a lot, as it was too dark and the baby was wriggling all the time, but managed to get a couple of sharpy images at the end:) Postproduction in Lightroom helped too!
