This morning I was working in our little office when I heard suddenly a lot of noise outside. I couldn't figure out what was happening, so, as curious as I am, went outside to look. And what did I see?? The dog trainer  who we asked to come and to train our dogs more to be obedient and to be good watch dogs, was standing with two of the dogs on the chain, when suddenly a guy with a stick came running around the house. The dog trainer tried to teach the 2 dogs to bark and to attack the guy. Only one dog was really good, the other one was afraid and tried to hide behind the dog trainer's legs. It was amusing to watch. As you can see on the picture below, the one dog is really trying to attack the guy, the other one is afraid. But according to the dog trainer, the other dogs will also pick up, today it was their first time to get the command: attack!
We are still worried about little Anna. She has still fever and her tummy is so swollen, her spleen and liver are very big. Yesterday she was started again on another antibiotic. But I took her again to the doctor today, and he checked her and said that also her heart is very fast and he wanted me to take her to the main hospital to the paediatrician. We have good relationships with the doctors there, so I called her and she said I could come to the children ward where she did her rounds. She examined her and said that she might be anaemic and a septicaemia. We went to check the blood and she needed blood transfusion. We got that, there was blood in the hospital and after the blood was in, we could even see that her colour was different. We took her back home and started the new IV medicines that the doctor prescribed, Anna is still very sick, and so tiny!!! Please pray for her recovery.   
Esther is holding Anna's arm while the blood is going in.
