I realised it’s time to pick up my civics books and start studying for the final exam I have in a fortnight! Next week I have my finals in English and Finnish but I’m not stressing over them at all, as languages have always been a piece of cake for me.
Generally speaking, I’m actually prioritising the issue of what to bring with me as snacks! I mean 6 hours is a long time and I need some comfort food to make feel better if the exams end up being unexpectedly hard 🌞
Louhi[ˈlouɦi], also known as Loviatar, Louheatar, Lovehetar or Louhiatar, is a queen of the land known as Pohjola (‘Northland’) in the Finnish and Karelian mythologies. She is the adversary of the hero Väinämöinen in the battle for Sampo, the magical artifact built by the blacksmith Ilmarinen. She has numerous beautiful daughters, and the heroes, including Ilmarinen and Lemminkäinen, attempt to win them in various legends. Louhi, however, is known for setting them impossible tasks to perform in order to gain their prize.
Louhi is a powerful witch: her powers include those of shapeshifting, commanding the weather, healing, and of giving birth to the most monstrous of creatures. Sometimes she is credited for being the mother of the Nine Diseases (as Loviatar); however, there is debate on whether Louhi and Loviatar are two different goddesses or whether the names are just regional variants.
Louhi, the 'Whore Mistress of Pohjola’, is depicted as a matriarch, and no presence of a husband is mentioned in most myths about her; instead, she becomes impregnated by the wind or by the sea monster Iku-Turso.
The Kurilian Bobtail is a cat breed (or breed group, depending on registry) originating from the Kuril Islands, as well as Sakhalin Island and the Kamchatka peninsula of Russia. The breed is also called the Kuril Islands Bobtail, Kuril Bobtail and Curilsk Bobtail. Short- or long-haired, it has a semi-cobby body type and a distinct short, fluffy tail.
i hate seeing this post around because that is some seriously forced perspective and also that is a caucasian shepherd which is exactly what it is, a shepherd. they are livestock/property guardian dogs and were not bred to hunt bears. they were bred to PROTECT things from people and animals, which may include bears.
two dogs that WERE bred for bear hunting include akitas and karelian bear dogs
source: im from a country that has caucasian shepherds everywhere
