Hiking tour on July 1st, 2006

For the frist time we invited all the owners of House-Barrett and House-Jack dogs to join us on a hiking tour

We decided for the country site of our beautiful area in the so called "Odenwald", a landscape around the famous Bergstraße (Heidelberg area)

We were lucky and had beautiful weather, which made everything so great

The families came from all over Germany. One family even came from Austria. Almost 700 km (close to 500 miles) they had to drive to get to us. Most families stayed for three days in a nice motel, so they could enjoy this one day with us.

We want to thank everybody who joined us to make this wonderful day happen.

Everybody liked it so much, They asked us to repeat something like this again next year. More families actually wanted to join, but their pups were too young for a tour like this at this time. They for sure will have a chance to go with us next time.

We wish everybody the very best for the future

Towards the end everybody got a little tired and looked for rest stops as Jacko did on this picture

At right around 7 PM our hiking tour was finished. But not finished for good. We all had Dinner together at a very nice restaurant

Just before we reached this restaurant Queeny thought, that she had to take another bath
