They eat his food when he is not around:
And they make him chase them without ever getting a chance of catching them. But as he needs exercise anyways it is quite OK.
Luca has a new obsession, which is to eat sunflower seeds and he refuses to go anywhere without munching on a pack
As we are just north of Traverse city we decided to go check out the cherry festival. Well, there were cherries
And candy floss
And a gazillion people
It was on the crowded side for bringing a dog and waiting in line for restrooms and trying to get coffee, so we decided to leave quite early.
On our way back to the car we saw a baby seagull wandering the streets constantly being in danger of getting run over by a car. Seagull mom was NOT happy. And decided to attack Ulrik! And managed to make a hole in his head (in a nice beak shape). So we started heading back to the car a bit faster. Then seagull mom came back bringing a little gang of other angry seagulls, and then we decided to make it to the car REALLY fast😳. Ulrik got the blood cleaned off and does otherwise seem OK, but we do not like seagulls anymore. And as we passed a taxidermy store on our way to Traverse City we decided to make a stop. Who knows? Maybe there was a stuffed seagull we could buy as revenge! It turned out to be the most awesome store EVER:
I just love finding these places unexpectedly (and I secretly wish a had a few hundred dollars to spare to get that canoeing squirrel).
