Pizzo Formico

The Pizzo Formico area in the Seriana Valley north of Bergamo, Italy is perfect for gentle family hikes...

as well as for social interaction, which is very important when you're an only child like me. Here's my new friend Gonte as he engages in a customary download of butt data with yours truly.

Apparently, my nose has more available download bandwidth, witness the fact that Gonte's download lasts longer than mine.

Birro, on the other hand, doesn't care much for butt data, especially now that I'm barking at him like my whole life depends on it.

"You want to play alpha dog?" he says, as he continues on his way. "Whatever makes you yappy!"

Am I a yappy little dog? "No, not all," Mammolo reassures me. "But you do come on a little strong when you do that dachshund thing of barking at bigger dogs just because they're bigger."

That didn't quite make sense to me, because studies have shown dachshunds have no sense of their size. I don't bark at bigger dogs because they're bigger. I bark because I think I'm just as big.

Size, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.


  1. Oh, Birro is certainly a beeYOUtiful dog. Maybe you could hold off barking at furst so you can get to know them, THEN bark if they're jerks? It makes me sad when little dogs come running up barking at me just because they can.

  2. Very wise words ! It was nice to meet some of your furriends. Purrs

  3. Leo's disappointed that this post had nothing to do with pizza. But I enjoyed seeing pictures of your walk and your friends!

  4. Dear Tootsie, social interaction is SO important and you have clear mastered the whole process to perfection.
    Toodle pip!

  5. Hi Tootsie! For some reason our laptop doesn't allow me to leave comments on your blog & we don't know why! So we're trying it on our phone now.
