Mountain wildlife

M tells me we are in the south of Germany and these mountains are called The Alps. I don’t care much about the name of the place, but I do like it here, very much. We make nice long walks and we are camping in our new campervan. When we walk M and P like to stop and have a drink and some food and they share it with me – so far I ate speck, big chunks of pancake called Kaiserschmarrn and schnitzel. So these mountains aren’t only great for walking, but also for eating out!

When we walk I smell loads of wildlife. The mountains must be swarming with it! Yesterday we sat for some drink at a place where a special kind of wildlife was roaming free. They came very close. I would have loved to catch them, they looked big and fat and juicy. Alas, M had me on a tight leash. Which was not fair. I have dreams about this wildlife now… In those dreams I do catch one of these big chunky birds and tear them to pieces. I think they will taste like Kaiserschmarrn. My mouth is watering!

Tough weekend

I had a really tough weekend. There is a new and big responsibility pressing on my slender shoulders, as we say in Holland. M and P bought a new camper and this one is even nicer than the old one. It is my job to guard it, of course. I chase away every human, canine and squirrel that dares to come near our new van. This is it:

We just returned from a three day trip, our first in this new van. It was quite exciting. We made long walks through the woods and over dunes-without-sea (they puzzle me – where did all the water go?).

We even did a walk which apparently is especially for dogs. M pointed out to me that the signs are made for us:

I think this is very funny. We dogs do not need signs, we find our way through the woods easily! Ha, silly humans.

In the nights it became very cold, so I made sure I was warm enough. My coat is pretty and sleek, made for the heat of Greece (where I come from), not the coldness of the north. So I took the right measures to stay warm during the night.

I did not mind sharing my bed with M and P, I am a social dog.

It was a nice trip, but I am very tired now because I hardly slept. I had to guard the van, right? Although the campsite seemed deserted, this was not so. There were squirrels laughing in the trees, rabbits running about and even some chicken prying at our nice new camper. I gave them my special look, so they did not dare to come close.

Meet chuck

Sorry you haven’t heard from me for a while. I was busy dealing with Chuck. This is Chuck:

In this case he was hiding from me, but I found him pretty quick!

Chuck is my new prey. I really like him, I drag him with me through our house. I am not allowed to take him when we go on a walk, I don’t know why not. Humans can really puzzle me sometimes. Maybe they think some other dog will snatch him away from me? Surely that will not happen, I will guard Chuck ferociously!

Anyway, I like Chuck. Not for eating, he tastes horribly, but I like having him around. He is mine.
