and Team Barrett hiking tour on 26th of August 2023
For the eighteenth time, House
and Team Barrett owners met for this year's hiking day.
Again around 35 participants had registered, although not all
of them were hiking due to the fact of having young dogs or
elderly people in the family, but for lunch they were all present.
Due to a so-called "stress
fracture" that "Dog Mom" had suffered from a
few weeks ago, she was accompanied by her horse "Black
Tattoo", which felt very comfortable among all dogs.
Hundemama also was accompanied by her two dams
Enza and Gwendi.
This year's route led us through a beautiful forest area between
Darmstadt and Pfungstadt.
Days before it was very hot, but the weather was kind to us
that day; around 22 degrees and no rain
Lunch was taken at around 1:00 p.m. Our board members together
with a few club members put a lot of effort into preparing
a good lunch for all participants. There were delicious salads,
different types of meat and sauces and very warm hospitality.
Our annual "Barrett photo" was taken after lunch.
Of course, the hosts could not be missing on this picture.
At this point we would like to thank everyone for the effort
that they had made.
While all the delicious food was eaten, "Black Tattoo"
grazed peacefully on our club grounds. At around 3:15 p.m.,
a large proportion of the hikers set off again towards Darmstadt.
The rest of the group, who couldn't hike back because of young
dogs or advanced aged people, stayed on the club grounds for
At 5:15 p.m., the group returned to the starting point. Some
families, who had come from far away, then went back home,
others drove to Malchen for dinner
As in previous years, Arthur captured our hiking
day with many pictures. Some have already been published on
facebook thanks to our Jennifer. As every year, we have now
opened a new page with more pictures.
It should also be noted that the Heigel family has already
agreed to select a very nice route in the Pfälzer Forest
for us next year, which we will then work out together with
the Heigel family. At the beginning of 2024 we will announce
the exact date of our next hiking day. Most likely it will
take place again on the last weekend in August.
We wish all House and Team Barrett owners the best for the
future, above all health and hope to see you again in the coming
year. This will then be our nineteenth hiking day!
