Sir Galahad didn't know the location, but eventually, we heard the great rising choral barks of my fellow dachshunds and followed the sound.
We caught up with my relatives just as the spring walk was getting started.
The first part of the walk followed the western shore of Lake Origlio...
where a crew of Emergency Medical Technicians were practicing a lake rescue.
It didn't seem like the EMTs needed our help, so we kept on walking in spite of the constant rain and ensuing WBS (Wet Belly Syndrome) for everyone.
Thank you for the great comments and questions after yesterday's post! The Swiss Dachshund Club is inclusive, and I met several fellow rescue doxies.
The most common breed of doxie we see in Switzerland (and so far in Germany, Austria, France, and Italy) is the wirehair. The second most popular is the long hair. Black-and-tans, which you see all the time in the U.S.A., are much less common here. I'm a rescue star!
Stay tuned: Swiss Dachshund Club Week continues tomorrow.
