In the News
Dog bites

recently in the news, it was reported that a woman had walked her dog along a street and came across a person with a child that she knew. The child had addressed the dog and got bitten in the face.

Here are the thoughs that popped up.

There's certainly a lot that has gone down the wrong pathway and it is a pitty that children make painful experiences with dogs that impairs a lively realtionship with dogs. Reward-based training of dogs and a mindful approach can help improve our relationships with dogs.


A place that is worth visiting every time is Krumke. There's always something to discover, something to enjoy.

What used to be outside the city a long time ago, is now a worthwhile site to visit.

Krähenfuss, Elbe

More details about the Krähenfuss reserve are made available at BfN, Bundesamt für Naturschutz , and at the state of Brandenburg website, Landesamt für Umwelt , including a few maps.


S. has been improving incredibly well at tracking my scent down to where the dummy is awaiting him. It's a means of giving him a job to do stimulating his senses and mind that can be well fitted into day to day life. That's why I like it dearly. S. seems to enjoy the chunk of cucumber he is rewarded.

Histoire RDA
Former military area and aerport Perleberg

I'd been curious to go explore that area for a while, so it was time to do it. The information I could obtain suggest that the origin of this area started around WWI as a military aerport, between 1910 and 1920, and in accordance to the Versailles agreement, it shut its doors until the 30s under Hitler when it was reactivated for military, airforce purpose. After WWII, it was used by the Svoviet armed forces, as a training and educational facility mainly, not only to train pilots, but also for ground forces. After the wall fell in 1990, not much was done. Located near the GDR border during cold war times, Perleberg and the nearby surroundings were closed to the civil people, I learnt from old people. Military activity was high, it seems.

The former fire-brigade? Click me.

What made me think that this could be the old fire station was the tower at the back that could allow to hang up and dry hoses. I found documents on the Internet suggesting that the fuelling used to take place in the vicinity of this building - which could support my thought.

That is a beautifully built building, with tiles on the ceiling and brickstone towers to the sides.

Random constructions
along federal road west of Wittenberge

where the new autobahn is set to be built, we came across some old constructions - one is supposed to be an old bycicle garage, the other one could be an old bus station.

Hello, old bus station?
Is that an old bycicle garade?

Old military building
Festung Dömitz

I set off to visit Festung Dömitz, a very old military installation. Conveniently, I used the opportunity for a visit to Gorleben, a site of the anti-nuclear movement and heavy clashes between the government, its law enforcement and the activists.

No means no
Gorleben Salzstock und Zwischenlager

While this appeared to me as an happy place at first glance, the exhibition makes clear that this is also a place of pain, despair and violence, where people stood their ground and said no, and where law enforcement showed its fierce side.

Semaine 30, Vendredi

I don't feel like writing recently; unlike my young days where I used to feel like blurting out more often. I didn't shoot many photographs either, so I really don't have to share much at this moment.

Semaine 21, Mercredi

Il existe trois catégorie: moral / immoral; nécessaire / pas nécessaire; légal / illégal. Pas tout légal n'est automatiquement moral ou nécessaire; et pas tout moral n'est à la fois légal. Et enfin, pas tout nécessaire n'est moral ou légal en même temps, pas automatiquement. Ça fait la vie compliqué et on peut pas généralement demander de respecter la loi, car il y a des instant òu c'est immoral, òu c'est nécessaire d'en sortir.
