On a Saturday in late October, Mom had to travel to Bern to review a dance show. Dad and I planned out the weekend so that we'd get a hike on Saturday on the way to Bern as well as another hike on Sunday on the way back. For Saturday's hike, we chose the Glaubenberg area in Canton Obwalden. Scenic Switzerland at its best!

The signage leaves no opportunities for navigational error.

Soon, we had some very fluffy company!

Gupfi and Tschuggi were hiking with their grandpa, who was very sweet and gave a biscuit to all three of us! He was also genetically modified, and we couldn't even dream of keeping up with him and his athletic fur-grandkids.

Plus, I don't like to walk too fast, because I love to stop and listen to the sound of my thoughts.

Eventually, we did make it to the top of Mount Jänzi. The big mountain behind me is Pilatus, the Hausberg of Lucerne and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Switzerland.

It was time to take a well-deserved nap...

before walking down the north side of the mountain, which unfortunately had some ice and snow.

Dad got worried that my paws would get way too cold and carried me for a while.

I guess I should have worn the boots we found at the Langis trailhead...but they were probably a few sizes too big :)


  1. Oh oh oh Gail is getting all misty eyed at the sight of Pilatus, scene of so many happy memories. Her Luzern-based godmother Doris used to have a chalet in the Eigental. As a student she stayed there and loved waking up to the mist lying low in the valley, dew on the rich meadows, Pilatus towering behind and in the background the sound of cow bells tinkling and clanging.
    As for me, I am wondering if you found the Egg?
    Toodle pip!

  2. We love to walk slowly...because we love to sniff everything.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. What a great time you had...but it does look a bit cold for the feet!


  4. That looks like a lovely walk. But yes, those boots are probably the wrong size -- and anyway, there's only two of them!

  5. "Stop and listen to the sound of my thoughts" MOM just loved that part. She is like that, me to most of the time. If ya go to fast there is so much beauty that is missed. What a wonderful hike ya all had.

  6. Yep... Slow and Sniffy are the bestest walkies... EGG??? that sign said EGG.. butt I didn't see it.

    Dads are such kind and thoughtful aren't they?

  7. You'd have to walk slowly to take in all that great scenery! Sounds like another great hike!

  8. Such a lovely place! It does look a bit cold for our feet though! Walking slow, what's that mean? When we travel and hike Mom has a hard time making me stop for anything, even water and food

  9. Oh this post just made me giggle and smile so much. Stopping to listen to the sound of one's thoughts can be a very good thing! hee hee Just adorable!
    Have a lovely day.

  10. Oh your walkies are so beautiful! But such a big hike for a little doggy!
    Your daddy is so kind to carry you so your little footies did not get too cold.

  11. Hi Y'all,

  12. What a great outing. I would have loved the snow. And to think just 20 minutes away from an egg- I'll have mine poached please.
