Hiking tour on August 25th, 2012

For the sevent time we invited owners of House-Barrett dogs to join us on a hiking tour

This time we hiked along the banks of the Rhine River between Hamm and Rheindürkheim.

The weather was great, not too hot nor too sunny, and almost all the families, who had registred for this trip did make it. This time we had a modest group, about 40 people and 27 beautiful House-Barrett dogs.

Again families joined us from all over Germany and other countries. Our furthest hiker
was an American who after the hike was going to visit his sister stationed in southern

We think, that this hike was amongest the easiest, and the dogs must have enjoyed swimming in the Rhine at one of the many 'Pit-stops' that were taken. The hike only was about 14 miles long, not too long, so everybody were able to make this trip easily.

We want to thank all the families who joined us to make this wonderful day happen.

Next year we for sure will plan another tour. At the beginning of next year we will announce the day when this hike in 2013 will take place.

We wish everybody the very best for the future
