No, Bruce, he isn't my dog, though we adopted each other as compagnions for walks. He is a farmer's dog. When I pass his farm, he just comes with me, he reads the news along the way, sometimes he disappears and comes up again further on and I do my walks, take pictures, if there is anything. So we are both independent and happy to know each other. :-) May

Btw. He is a short-haired Bernese Mountain Dog. They used to pull the little carts with the milk to bring it to the dairy.

Sorry, the resolution is really bad. It was just a test with some old picture, which has been dramatically reduced.

Bruce, these dogs are very good companions and friendly. They are called "Berner Sennenhund", which translated means "Bernese Alpine Herdsdog". There is a long tradition of breeding in this region (canton of Berne), that's how they got their name. You find them here in nearly every farm. They have a very gentle character and are excellent family dogs and are used as intelligent guard dogs, for the family as well as for the animals and the house.

It's said, that they originally came to this region 2000 years ago with the Roman troops, when they crossed the mountains. Greetings, May

Hallo May! Ein schönes Foto! Berner Sennenhunde gefallen mir. Sie sind, glaube ich, sehr gutmütig und trotzdem gute Wach- und Hütehunde. Danke für die interessante Hintergrundinformation - das alles war neu für mich. L G Anne

Danke, Anne! Ja, die Berner Sennenhunde sind wirklich zuverlässige Wachhunde und sehr anhänglich und treu. Liebe Grüsse, May

I couldn't go by and not comment on a dog. Never, never! I love them, but what has made me smile here was your comment about him reading the news along the way :-)) You have to know dogs to pick up on that one! :-D I can't think of a lovelier way to walk and a better companion.

For now, Warm wishes, Lesley

Thank you Lesley! Oh, I miss Baeri, he was such a lovely dog, he has died a few years ago.

Sorry about the very low resolution of the photo, I did it with my first digital camera.

Warm wishes, May
