Concerned Flight

Sils, Switzerland

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Discovery!

My human aunt and uncle are visiting, so I took them on walkies to Ruinaulta, known as the "Grand Canyon" of Switzerland.


And I discovered a new mushroom. So I named it: Fungus Schlongus.


I sent a photo to Grandpa, and he says it's probably a shaggy mane. I like my name better.

Tootsie Visits the Bernese Oberland

This past weekend, we hiked in the Bernese Oberland! Mom was worried because it is super touristy, but it was tons of fun and totally wotten waven.

From Wilderswil, we rode a cogwheel train up to Schynige Platte.


Here's a train load of big wheels of Swiss cheese!


Then we hiked along a plateau.


And onward next to a very steep drop-off.


At one point, we could see the Eiger! -- but we don't have any pictures, because my parental units are dorks. So here is a big rock.


Here is a great view of the Bernese Oberland. The Eiger, the Monch, and the Jungfrau were each visible at certain points, but only briefly and never all three at once. They are off to the left of the photo below.


Mom helped me with some flight practice.


But she didn't let me go.


Love,
Tootsie

My Ocean Magnet Post

Dear Furfriends and Humans:

Lest you think I am a spacey dachshund who does not follow through on her wags, I wanted to give you this update about my great magnet giveaway challenge from summer 2014.

I am remiss! I never followed up! In truth, all of you were close to guessing my location correctly, but the only dog -- or human? -- who almost guessed correctly posted with a name, Kipper, but no tracking address! So no award magnets were given.

Where was I? I was at Rockaway Beach along the Oregon Coast with Mom and Dachshund Daddy. All of you who guessed -- "you're at the beach!" -- were technically correct.

Here are the results:

Kipper was the closest because (s)he guessed near Cannon Beach, Oregon.

Hannelei was second closest because she guessed southern Oregon.

And Bouncing Bertie was third closest because he thought it might be the Oregon Coast.

Here's a photo from the Oregon Coast near Tillamook (where there is a yummy cheese factory tour):


Love,
Tootsie

P.s. Mom says it is her fault, not mine, that she did not follow-up on the great magnet giveaway of 2014!
