On a recent bike ride through the Jura villages, farms and mountains Mr. Wild Dingo says to me,"It totally sucks here." And I'm like, "Ya, let's go home. Just one more ride." In fact, it sucks so bad here that we couldn't even take photos of our lame-ass rides through the quaint villages or rolling hills. So we'll share a few really boring photos of the dogs having a bad time here.
This is the dock for the cruise ship that stops here a few times per day. They don't look like they like it much, do they?
The cruise ship serves a gourmet dinner on it, which even the locals find tempting.
The photo below was taken exactly a minute or two on the same day after the first photo above. Check out the drama in the sky compared to the sky in the first photo. It amazes me that it can be so diverse here.
"Handsome, there's a new doggie sport called 'dock diving' that I know you'll just love. Why don't you go take your first plunge?"
"Princess, I'll think I'll stick to dock paw crossing."
On Sunday's, Mr. Wild Dingo and I take the dogs into town for a family brunch. I don't know if I'm paranoid or what but we seem to get a lot of stares. I think it's the husky, but then again, Loki loves to give off those cracker eyes that look like he's about to pounce.
"I have cracker eyes? I have no idea what you're talking about."
"Just wait until a black lab walks by, then it's all down hill from there Mom!"
"Suddenly, Poppy is my new best friend."
"Resistance is futile."
"Oh yeah, come to Momma."
"Nothing better than a salami sub on a Sunday morning in Swissi-land."
"Handsome, our fans are waiting for us to grace them with our presence."
"I'm ready whenever you are Princess. Shall I jump on and 'Arrgghh' the Mommy?"
The walk along side the lake is one of their favorites. There are geese and swans to watch, ice cream to hope for and doggies to meet everywhere.
All the villages have several potable drinking fountains that even doggies can use. It saves me the hassle of carrying an extra water bottle.
Yup, we hate it here.
