Ex-pat Years in Switzerland

Luck. Fortune. Fate. Call it what you want, but when the opportunity to spend a few years in Switzerland landed in our laps, we didn't say "no." I mean, we may be crazy here at Wild Dingo, but we're not exactly, crazy. It was everything you'd imagine and more. From transatlantically transporting two high-drive dogs to our foreign grocery store adventures, there wasn't a single moment of regret.

Encore Une Fois Smackdown Sibérie: Dans La Neige

Since we moved to Switzerland, pack dynamics have changed a bit. Juno's hips have gotten a bit worse and she isn't as likely to play rough with Loki anymore. I'm sure it bums out Loki not to have a really rough tumble anymore.  Still, he's bit of an idiot bully with her and tends to push her […]

Swiss Made Art

While the TravelMarx were here we visited Bern (otherwise known as Berne) in hopes of going to the Paul Klee or Einstein museum. But it was Monday and all the museums were closed. Because of the stress of having to stay open on a Sunday (seriously, that's what the books say, it's the stress of working […]

Je N'Aime Pas Dire Au Revoir

  The TravelMarx left on Friday, after spending two extra days being snowed in with airport and airline shut downs. I really hated seeing them leave. Yes, those are my new boots I'm modeling in the photo. Don't worry. I already bought another pair by now. One specifically for dog walking.  I'm thinking I need at […]

Winter Woonderland

December's masthead celebrates our new adventures in a new climate. Neither dog has ever experienced snow so it has been a blast taking in their delight and wonder at the powdery stuff. At first Juno seemed indifferent to the weather, but the more the snow falls, the more she seems to enchanted with it. She savors being belly-deep in […]

More Snow Funballs

While Wild Dingo's personal photographer, TravelMarx, are excellent at taking photos, they have fallen below average in downloading the most recent to Wild Dingo's computer.  So while they're doing some boring, fascinating tour of some Nuclear & Partical Physics Lab in Geneva, (yawn), I'm posting the rest of the photos from our weeked of funballs time […]

What the Heck is This White Stuff?

Loki and Juno had their first snow, ever yesterday. Juno seemed to like it fine, but Loki really surprised us. He loved it. For a dog afraid to get his footsies wet or walk on metal grates or metal ground covers, he didn't even notice the white stuff was cold or wet. I don't think […]

American Visitors

"Hey Princess, Mom says the TravelMarx are coming to visit. Do you remember them?" "Sure I do, Big Boy. They visited us last year and stayed with us when Mom and Pop deserted us for a week." "They took us on nice hikes."' "And played tug with me every minute of the day! Sigh. They […]

The Princess and Her Turkey

One of our favorite places to hang out is on this little bit of shoreline in Morges.   It's deserted enough during the day to give the dogs a little free time off leash. Usually there's nobody for the dogs to bother, play with. But sometimes we run into this guy:

What Price Beauty

Every day on our daily walks I'm reminded how lucky I am to be living in such a beautiful place.  But with beauty, there's always a price. Take our walk to St. Prex a few weeks ago. St. Prex is a beautiful town.
