Yes! We got two days of unexpected sunshine, so I tried to make the most of it by walking and walking and walking. Today the rain comes and will keep at it until we leave, or at least that's the forecast. I'm a little concerned because rain here means snow up on the pass back to Germany and I don't have chains. I thought about staying a few days longer, but the forecast is snow and sub-freezing temps for the next 10 days, so my plan now is to try on Sunday and just go slowly, slowly over the pass. Carbon of course will be completely unaware of the drama, snoozing in his little nest in the TARDIS, as I white-knuckle it over the pass and through the Alps. Lucky señor!Looks like the promised rain held off which is great
He's such a happy dog and yet he looks SO MISERABLE in these photos.As for Carbon, what a delight! e I love how he does a little jump before coming to you. He is a joy!
He really is so good. Such a quick learner - sticks his head into that muzzle like a champ even though the last time we worked on muzzle training was this spring with @Boogie .What a good boy Carbon is on the vaporetta
Forecast is rain until we leave on Sunday morning, so I'm dragging Carbon out to make the most of it. He's been so patient, but he is kind of over it all now, poor señor. I've decided for the rest of the day to find other things to photograph that don't include him. He'll still get a cookie, but no posing required. I'm also letting him sniff to his heart's content. Strangely enough, the wet doesn't bother him as much if he's got his nose in something disgusting and potentially lethal. Then it's happy waggy time!Oh Senor Carbon, it does look dire, hope the sun soon shines again
Absolute gobs of dogs. You see them more in the areas where people still live and there's a bit of open space - so near the park (Giardini/S Elena) or along the wide waterfront (Arsenale/S Zaccaria).Are there many other dogs in Venice, I cannot remember if I ever saw one when I was there, but saw loads in Paris.
I should have this tattooed on my inner eyelids so that I never forget it. I swear the number of times on this trip that I've said to Carbon, "Please stop trying to eat weird sh**t!" has to number in the millions.All Labs thrive on something disgusting and potentially lethal, that is there reason d'être
