Our short trip to Poland/Usedom(GER)

May 31st, 2009, 03:43 AM
A couple of days ago we went to Poland and Usedom (a german island, very close to Poland; Baltic Sea) to spend some time with my parents-in-law and my nephew. My brother-in-law and my niece joined us a day later so it was real family vaccation!
Poland is a real great place for dog-/pit bull owners! No BSL, no rules, no silly comments towards our dog while we were at the market with him.

Mine!! (

Yeah! ( ( (

I'm wet! (

The cutest Babyboy alive! (

When we came home to our hotel, Smokey got really sick: high fever (41,2°C), dehydrated, throwing up all night, shivering, pain in this stomach and he didn't react when we've talked to him. So we had to see the emergency vet that night... He saied that he could have drunk too much salt water. He got some infusions and a lot of injections that night, but he soon felt better...
btw: Smokey now have seen vets in 3 different countrys: USA, Germany and Poland. Thank God nothing has happend to him while we stayed in Denmrk earlier this year ;)

This is the only picture I took the next day. Smokey wasn't himself, he was sleeping all day long, doesn't even want to take a walk. So we stayed in the hotel all day long... (

On Friday we went to Peenemünde. Peenemünde is where the V2-Rocket was invented. It now is a huge museum.

Daddy, what's that?! (

Damn, it's a rocket!! (

And what are you? (

I found water!! Let's take a bath, Daddy! (
Hubby really had problems to take him away from the water without falling in ;)

Smokey and the V2-Rocket (

Cuddeling with "Grandpa" (

Smokey and Lord Nelson (Nelson belongs to my parents-in-law) (

I love you, I love you, I love you!! (

We really had a great time in Poland!

Smokey is behaving like a little puppy when Nelson (7 year old and a little bit overweight ;)) is around him. He's the biggest love of his life. It's great to see them together!

Smokey has to be the most well travelled doggie on this forum. :D

Smokey looks like a dream dog! :lovestruck:
Oh, he isn't :laugh::laugh:

He's dog aggressive since he was badly bitten by a german shepherd (towards bigger dogs, esp german shepherds and labrador retrievers, but he's deeply in love with every small dog which crosses his way!), he's hyperactive, he's chewing up everything he will find (last thing was my new iphone... :evil:), sometimes he is frightend by everything he sees (doesn't matter if there really IS something or not :rolleyes:), he has got some health problems (Epilespy, cruciate ligament rupture on both legs, ...) ... and so on... and so on...
... but he's MY dog and I love him very much :lovestruck::lovestruck: I never regret any second of taking him from the shelter!
