I have a new little friend, a weekend friend. He is 7 years old, his name is Winnie and he has the most beautiful eyes you van imagine.
Ever since I was a girl and was bitten by the dog of one of my friends, I have been afraid of dogs. But Winnie is an exception. He was wild when he was a puppy, as all puppies are, and made me feel uncomfortable, but as soon as he grew up, he became the most charming dog you can imagine.
Winnie charms us all. He loves to play with Marta, and Marta loves to play with Winnie.
Winnie does not like could water, but can´t say no to Marta´s games.
Winnie loves "uncle" Terje, and "uncle" Terje loves Winnie.
Winnie is Marta´s youngest "cousin", the dog of Terje´s brother and sister in law Arne and Lisbeth.
We have spent the most lovely autumn weekend with them up in the mountains, at Røros, where Lisbeth grew up and where they have the cabin of Lisbeth´s childhood.
I will always continue to say NO to a dog living permanent in The House in the Woods,
but being Winnies "aunt", spending a weekend with him up in the mountains is close to heaven.
