Nice winter walk

We made a nice winter walk. We started in a dark forest:

I like walks in general, but this one was truly awesome because it was lined with statues of me! Like this one:

And this one:

Pretty awesome, no?

For the last part of this very long walk we went to the beach. I love the beach!

We made it home just in time before dark. I do not mind the dark of course, but M does. Back home we  had a little snack and after that a really long sleep. I had a great day!

Nice little morning walk

We had a nice little morning walk, M and I. First we biked to the beach – that is: M on the bike, me running next to it. Since our cargobike is broke, this is our transport now. I think it is a cool bike, so here it is:

We walked to the small beach near the jetty, which is a great place for investigating. It has nice views, too.

Then we went to the big beach, where I did some relaxed running.

And made an effort in digging a huge hole for my brand new squeaky ball.

Then we went back home, M biking and me running. She is working now and I doze in my favorite chair. What a great way to start the day.

No more cargobike

There is some sad news I have to share with you. My cargobike is gone. It was broken beyond repair, M tells me. That is a real shame, because I loved that bike. I especially loved being driven around in it.

My cargobike

I felt like a princess! Now I have to use different sorts of transport. For instance, this:

We drove this one to the beach this morning. Which was nice, of course. The beach is always nice.

We still have a car, my favorite campervan, but M hardly uses that for our everyday transport. Instead we take public transport, like the big thing on the pic above. This means I have to share my vehicle with all kinds of smelly humans and stupid canines I do not even know. That doesn’t suit me. So I am glad we usually bike. That is: M bikes, I run beside her. Which is okay, I like running. But I do miss my cargobike. I hope M and P will buy me a new one. Hey, it is my birthday next month, so I could ask for a new cargobike! Now that is a thought…

Boy-friend weekend!

I had the most thrilling weekend. My boy-friend stayed with us! I adore him:

When we meet we always do really cool things. Like cruising in a flashy car, along the beach:

We played for hours:

He is very good at throwing the frisbee:

I have to run really hard to catch it!

It was pretty awesome. He has gone home now and I am going to sleep and dream of our adventures. Goodnight!

Exhausted

Some things in life are obvious. Like the fact that dogs need a walk every day. Not just a ten-minute-stroll-around-the-block, but a real walk. To an exiting place, like the beach or the park. My humans know this and we walk a lot. Which is nice.

But one can overdo this a-long-walk-every-day stuff. Humans tend to do that sometimes, don’t they? They don’t just exercise, which is good, but they exercise too much. My humans don’t do this, normally, they are reasonable and intelligent. They know when it is healthy to exercise and when it is time to stop and rest. However, yesterday something went wrong. We walked and walked and walked. And when we stopped to have lunch, I thought we would take a train or a car or something to go back home, but we didn’t. We walked all the way back!

Too long walk

We walked more than 30 kilometers. And that, I can tell you, is exhausting. Even for a well trained dog like me, with my long legs and strong muscles. When I got home, I wolfed down my food and went to sleep immediately (with Chuck, who had stayed home all day, the lazy bastard).
Jeez. I do hope my humans won’t do this again.

Exhausted

Photoshoot

I am not sure what to think of this. I do not like to dress up. I think it is silly to dress up dogs and whenever I meet a dog with a coat I laugh at him, really loud. But this weekend my boy-friend was visiting us. He is a model, you know, his pictures are in magazines. He likes to dress up and get himself photographed. So he was really excited when this weekend M had a surprise photoshoot for him.

That was good for him of course, he is my boy-friend so I was glad he was happy. Until I found out that I was in it, too! We went to this place at the beach. We had to dress up. The photographer made pictures of us. It looked like this:

I look very silly. But my boyfriend is extremely happy with this picture and he wants to share it with the world. That means you, my readers. So here it is.

Please don’t laugh.

A three day hike

Last time I told you I was probably up to a new Adventure and I was right! We went on a three day hike. We started at our house and went to the sea. There was a thick mist which made the surroundings a bit mysterious for M and P. Not for me, I use my nose and ears as much as I use my eyes. I knew exactly where we were going.

Hike1

We went to the beach and I ran to keep myself warm – and because I was happy, because it looked like we were going on a long hike. M and P had these packs on their backs, which usually is good news. It means we are going to walk for hours. We had lunch at a beach club and then continued our hike through the dunes. The mist cleared and it became sunny.

Hike2

Then we went to the beach again. I ran some more, rolled in smelly sea food (no good for eating anymore, but fabulous for perfuming your body) and I met other dogs, whom I greeted politely.

Hike3

It became a bit tricky when the tide came in. I had to help P cross the ocean:

Hike4

Then we sat down again at another beach club and I finally could take a nap.

Hike5

While M and P enjoyed this. I don’t know what it is, but they drink it al lot so I guess they like it:

Hike6

After my nap we walked just a little further to our hotel. It was a cosy place, where I discovered that M and P had not taken my snoozebag with them, but some flimsy blanket to lie on. I was very disappointed when I found out. So I decided to snooze on the bed. I am not allowed on the bed, but when I keep my hind legs on the floor it is not really lying on the bed, is it?

Hike7

In the end, I did sleep on the flimsy blanket. Too bad. The next day, we started out on the beach again. I found a huge stick!

Hike8

Like the day before, we walked on the beach and in the dunes. It was nice, although a bit cold with a strong wind blowing from the sea.

Hike9

We went to a new place and stayed in a different hotel. This morning we started from there. It was nice and sunny.

Hike10

We went along the beach for a short while, then walked to the dunes and into the woods. I was off leash most of the time, so I could run and sniff around. I smelled rabbits and deer and cyclists.

Hike11

Then the landscape changed. There were more houses and traffic and noise and I knew we were entering a city. A nice city though, with lots of tasty fat ducks in the little canals.

Hike12

From there we took one of those swoooish things called trains and we went back home. It was amazing how fast we were home again. It was still there and I was lucky, because the sun was shining on my favorite chair. So I stretched my long legs and dozed in the sun, for the rest of the day. This was an Adventure.
