Cassiar and Truffle

When something truly lovely is happening on the other continent, the world feels like a vast place. I had one of those missing moments when Mom got an email with this photograph attached.

This is a picture of my human cousin Cassiar taking my fur-brother Truffle on a walk in our northern Idaho woods.

Suddenly, I wanted to be there when we were here. Such times can be confusing for a little dog -- even a savvy sausage like me.

On the phone, Cassiar told Mom how much he loves visiting Grandpa in Idaho with his dad and brother. "We had a special Saturday walk with Truffle," said Cassiar, "and I held the leash the whole time."

And then his brother Aghi talked to Mom: "I love you." Mom's heart almost burst. The conversation healed our missing moment.

  1. What unusual names your human cousins have, Tootsie. I really like them!

    Maybe they'll come visit you in Switzerland one day soon. I should know by now (but don't). Do you spend 6 months in each place? And are you in Idaho when you're in the States? I still think you're the luckiest doggie out there :)

    1. Ah, thank you, Ms. Georgia! And Mom keeps advocating for another room, so my human cousins can come visit for a long time when they are older!

      Mom says she cannot even keep our schedule straight, and it's not straight-forward. Thank you for asking! Generally, we spend summer in Idaho and a month during winter in Idaho, and the rest of the time we spend in Switzerland. Recently, though, we've had a bunch of trips, which means Mom is all unsettled. And she's supposed to be learning Italian (southern Switzerland, so Italian language), but she's really bombing out on it. I speak more Italian than she does!

      We hope your return from holidaycamp went very well!

      Love and wags,

    2. Thank you! The Typist is such a sticky beak. I don't know much about Idaho but it sounds cold. That really is an exciting life you lead, Tootsie, and one my humans aspire to. Maybe more like following the sun :)

      The trip home went well. The Typist managed to do some shopping and was very happy. We miss our sunrise over the ocean view from the bedroom!

      Hugs x

  2. Arhhh but you have the best of both worlds.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Awwwwe! It must be tough missing one place when your in another!

  4. To miss someone is to really love someone!

    Your friend,


  5. What a lovely picture, no wonder you miss them. Remember the world is really a small space and thanks to computers and phones and all we can reach out to eachother at any time

  7. Yes, we too think that the young humans should come to Switzerland. Gail says she'll never stop being grateful to her wonderful Swiss godmother who she stayed with so many times as a teenager and young adult, and who enriched her life beyond measure.
    Personally, I would be a bit scared to meet one of those HUGE St Bernards!

  8. Hi Y'all,

    Stoppin' to say "hello" and see how y'all are doing.

    Ah, my Human LOVES Switzerland! Hope y'all can go for a visit!

    Hope you have a fantastic week!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  9. Oh hopefully the cousins can come visit! It looks like some fun times with the family in those pics. But the great thing is you can get a hold of them and talk via online chat! Hope you have a great Tuesday, our friends. ~Weinerful Gang~

  10. How heart warming. I hope you get to see them soon!
