My Doggy-Godson Visits!

We're so excited to welcome my doggy-godson Bertie & his human Gail for a visit. They're traveling all the way from Scotland, via train, ferry, and train. (Years ago, we all met online through our doggy blogs; how pawfect is that?) Welcome to Switzerland, friends! Read about Bouncing Bertie's trip here.

It's great timing for a visit because Mom's been super homesick since leaving the United States. Though, wow, how can she be homesick when the US election seem endless and exhausting and weird? To make us feel extra lucky (and put life in perspective), Dachshund Daddy took us hiking in the French Maritime Alps last weekend. If you look closely at this Alpine Family Selfie, you'll see I'm giving Mom a French kiss.

The next photo shows the wonderful signs to alert you to guardian dogs guarding their flocks.

I even got in a little flight practice!


  1. We can't wait to hear all about Bertie's visit! It's so exciting!

  2. That's so exciting ! We're looking forward to hearing more about Bertie's visit ! Purrs

  3. Hi Tootsie, I'm so thrilled to be here and it's great to meet you at last. But just one thing, dear Doggy Godmother. STOP TRYING TO EAT MY BREAKFAST! Loo, if I leave food that's put out for me, it's 'cos I want to savour it later. It is not up for grabs by the resident miniature Dachshund, OK?
    Toodle pip!

  4. Hi Tootsie it is nice to meet you and we look forward to all your adventures with Bertie and Gail. Everybuddy hug everybuddy for us.
    NOTE TO BERTIE: Well you might recall our first family pet was a mighty mini Dachshund...and let me just say I've heard mom say Toto ate any and everything that was at his eye level. No more grazing while you on vacay must eat it all at one sitting
    Hugs madi and mom

  5. Hi Tootsie!
    We wanted to come visit and say hi to Bertie's Godmother. We bet you and he are going to have lots of fun adventures during his visit!!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  7. Oh wow! How fun is that? I'd love to meet Gail and Bertie - and the location is just beautiful.
