Happy new year

As a dog I am rather surprised about all this happy new year stuff. Humans make a lot of fuss about it, as if today will be very different from tomorrow because it will be a ‘new year’. Typical. The sun goes down and comes up again, which in itself is pretty magical every time she does that. Drawing a line between two days with an ‘old’ and a ‘new’ year is kind of…. technical.

Anyway: humans share a lot of ‘looking back on 2016’ news and that I do like. It got me thinking. It was a good year, you know. So I thought I’ll share my biggest adventures of 2016 with you.

This is The List of 2016:

February: camping for the first time with our new campervan. I guard it even more ferociously than I did before, with our old campervan. We went camping a lot this year, which was awesome.

Police adventure 2

March: helping the police to catch some burglars – that is a police officer you see in the picture, the burglars escaped. But we did find their tools!

May: exploring the woods around our home and discovering a new path that is known only to us.

Walk in Barolo

July: hiking in the hot hills of Italy.

Pijama nights 3

August: chilling in the high mountains of France.

September: cruising along the beach boulevard with my boy-friend.

November: exploring the vast woods around our favorite campsite.

I also want to mention the numerous times I was on the beach. We go there almost every day, so I can not call all these beach strolls a big adventure. But I do love them. There might not be a big adventure waiting there (although sometimes there is, like the times I assisted the police), but one never knows what little surprises we will encounter. They count too, you know.

Little fish!

Happy new year!

Four day hike

We just returned from a great Adventure. We hiked for four days in the hills of (M tells me) Germany! It was awesome. There were lots of pretty paths.

M and P were happy and so was I. I ran over the hills.

Eifel1

We walked through fields…

Eifel5

And forests….

Eifel6

And more fields….

Eifel8

There was a field that was extremely smelly – it was full of shit! Manure, M tells me it is called. I crashed trough it. Great!

Eifel7

We visited nice little towns, too. There we took small breaks. It is important to rest after and during activities, you know.

Eifel10

We slept in places like this:

Pretty, hey? I slept next to P. Cosy.

Eifel4

It wasn’t all easy, though. I had to do a lot of guarding, scanning the surroundings to make sure we were safe:

Eifel3

We encountered some wildlife. I chased a lot of mice, a fox and a hare. I could have caught them easily, of course. But in the end I let them all escape, because I was in a peaceful mood. I just liked to chase them.

Eifel15

We encountered some strange animals, too. I found them quite disturbing because they did not behave like they should – they came to me, instead of running from me. I wasn’t too sure what to think of them. Happily there was a solid fence that protected us from these beasts.

Eifel16

M tells me we walked 65 kilometers, but I don’t know what that means. I can tell we walked all day and my muscles got even stronger. Good. It was fun!

Now I need to sleep. Goodnight!
