Happy - Mon Golden Retriever

The joys of puppy parenthood in Switzerland.
Feeling much better!

Feeling much better!

Our poor Happy celebrated National Dog Day with an crazy insect bite.

Tonight, we were playing in the garden and Happy suddenly started to roll over and scratch her head against the grass: she was bitten by an insect.

15 minutes later, she was red and swollen. We called the vet and fortunately, we had cortisone pills at home. We gave her the dose prescribed by the vet and waited 15 more minutes. To our relief, she was filling better. (If not, the vet said we would have to take her to their practice for an emergency shot).

3 hours later, she is still swollen and somewhat looks like a chow chow but she is looks much better.

Even when she is sick, Happy is so sweet. She begs for cuddles all the time. She cuddled the whole evening.

It has been a year we have moved out of Geneva, and I think Happy does not miss city life at all.

Lounging with Happy in the garden. It is Saturday.

Good morning!

Since we came back, Happy is in a cuddly mood.

3 more days…
And I will see my Happy again. I can’t believe I miss her so much.

See you soon Happy!
Happy is enjoying a special vacation while we are off to Asia. Her Petsitters at Baladog, in Celigny, are taking care of her.
I took this picture when we drove there… Happy was wondering where the hell I was taking her.
When we arrived, she saw their minivan in the garden (the one they use on week days). She jumped right in and was not interested in me anymore!

Hiking up La Dent de Jaman

A great 2-3 hour hike idea for Summer.
Park at Col de Jaman, make sure your dog wears a harness as you may have to help your dog go up through a few rocky paths during the first 45 minutes.

Breathtaking views over Lake Geneva and a well deserved lunch at Buvette de Jaman await (best röstis and rhubarb pie we had in a while, make sure to book ahead)!

We saw sheeps grazing and passed nearby a farm on the way back where you can purchase local cheeses.

We will be back to hike the nearby Rochers de Naye this Summer.

Afterwork SUP
Those Summer days, we love to go SUP afterwork on the lake, and so does Happy, always ready to jump on the board.
