Back in Switzerland!

I just flew back to Switzerland with Mom! Thanks to Mom's TLC, I did very well during the three flights. As usual, dad picked us up at the Zurich Airport.


Unlike most airports, the Zurich Airport is very pedestrian-and-dog friendly. As it is directly connected to the Swiss trail network, we were able to go on our first Swiss hike of Spring 2012 before the train ride back home. That's good because I had to pee after three flights!


Our destination was Butzenbüel, a cute little hill across from the pedestrian entrance to the Zurich Airport.


Butzenbüel has tons of grass for me to pee on...


as well as a commanding view of the airport facilities.


In spite of its small size, Butzenbüel offers various hiking trails that can be accessed in less than five minutes from the airport... on foot!


(Hauling Mom's luggage up the hill was not fun, but Dad took care of that.)

  1. Home sweet home...after all your problems. Looks like a great place to run around and check out the pee mail. Glad you left some to let everyone know you're back in the country.

  3. Have I told you how lucky you are Tootsie? I bet your passport is full of stamps! My Typist wants to know if you travel in the cabin because she swears she saw a pic of you once on a seat. Is that allowed where you are? I'm not even allowed on a bus or a ferry or a train.

    1. Yes, I travel in the cabin! You probably saw a picture of me on a train seat, though. I'm not allowed out of my bag onboard flights. I'm bummed you are not allowed on a bus, ferry, or train!

  11. Hey Tootsie, Jet here.

    How cool is that? Trails right out of the airport... You must be happy to see your dad again. You are truly a world traveler. Can't wait to see more hiking pics.

  13. Great to see you back on this side of the Pond Tootsie. And thanks very much for showing how Zurich is such a dog friendly airport. It has recently come to my notice that Gail is planning a wee visit to Switzerland in July, to visit her now very elderly godmother in Luzern. I fear that she is planning to sneak off without me, but I shall show her this post and maybe I can shame her into letting me join her....

  19. Any hints on how to fly with your dog? My guide dog puppy, Dublin just graduated guide dog college and took his first airplane flight. We heard he did very well. :)
