Hike 8 of 2019

Hike to the Bolle di Magadino in Switzerland. 🐾🐾 This is a wetland area at the mouth of the Ticino River, across the north end of Lake Maggiore. Dog met: A four-month old puppy Chihuahua named Lina and two Border Collies. (We cannot remember their names!) 🐢☀️

And we saw this pawsome doggy DACHSHUND sign!

Hike 7 of 2019

This is another hike we do a lot during the winter. It's near Sessa, Switzerland and also an extension of Hike 3. Dog met: Pinko, a four-year-old standard dachshund who is afraid of cats. His mom thought Pinko thought Tootsie might be a cat, but eventually Pinko sniffed Tootsie's butt and all was well with the world. 🐾🐢🐾

Here's what the humans ate after the hike. Tootsie got a carrot biscuit treat made especially for dogs.

Hike 6 of 2019

This trail goes to the Sessa Gold Mine, which operated until 1952. (It's now a museum.) Note that these kinds of vineyards are common in Ticino, Switzerland, terraced and tidy. (Merlot is common here, but we don't partake.) Dogs met: a fine medium-sized lab mutt guarding her home with barks and wags; she didn't tell us her name.

Can you find Tootsie? She's inside her "Take-a-Long Bag" from Dachshund Delights!
