Berlin Day Hike: A Taste Of Spring Near Garzin

Still not in form, we chose to have a short walk near Garzin along Haussee and over the fields. What shall I say? Spring really tries, but the weather is still cold and mostly dark and a lot of plants still wait for their signal to start their new life in bloom. Pavlov is getting bigger and bigger and is coming back when we are calling quite steadlily. He chased the two huge cranes over the fields and even came back when I called him in the middle of hunting. Maybe only because the cranes started flying away and he recognized, that his chances of catching them were very thin.

On the last picture Pavlov is becoming a grown up :-). He still pees like a baby, only some times – very rarely – he lifts his leg.

Berlin Day Hike: Sunny Walk With Two Dogs

Having a dog, means hanging out in the park quite frequently. But who would have thought, that this leads to new friends? Like that I got to know Palina. She fell in love with Pavlov and told me, she will soon have a dog herself. Than I got to know her Mum Natalija and her dog Pandora, a 3 month old Maremmano-Mix. I think we just connected at first sight and I invited them to come over to the little house on the prairie. What a fun afternoon we had!

Berlin Day Hike: A Walk Around Kleiner Stienitzsee

Two of us not in the best of health, we chose a small walk near our house. This day with two dogs.

Berlin Day Hike: Lost Places near Harnekop

We will come back to visit the huge exposition of GDR motorcycles collected by one of the inhabitants of the abandoned barracks.

Berlin Day Hike: Our House Hike Around Herrensee

We started this afternoon in the rain and we just wanted to have a quick walk before returning to the city. But soon the sun came out and we had some magic light in the forest. So there is something to remember in it: The most ordinary walk can unexpectedly turn into something shiny and bright with a little help from the sun. Pavlov loves running between the trees and mostly obeys very well when we call him back.

Berlin Day Hike: Spectacular Lights at Old Spree

It’s already quite a while ago that we have hiked near Mönchwinkel but there has been a similar situation of light at the time. Dark skies and some sun rays from time to time.

Berlin Day Hike: Blue Sunday Near Lichtenow

We had a nice Sunday afternoon walk near Lichtenow with friends. Pavlov didn’t want to take the backpack option this time and we observed a big group of deer far from us.

Berlin Day Hike: Over The Fields Near Görlsdorf

We have some friends out there on the countryside and it’s a very cute little village with a lot of nice and creative people who fled the city and try out different styles of living. The weather was capricious and much colder than the pictures suggest.

Sometimes Pavlov gets out of his instagram mode and eats his paws.

On our way home we saw at least 30 deer next to the street.

Berlin Day Hike: Tour Around The Lakes In Waldsieversdorf

We had a slow and grey Sunday and the sun hid behind clouds again. We all hope spring will manifest soon with great lights and warm sunrays. Pavlov saw a duck for the first time and as he is a “Duck Tolling Retriever” I imagined noticing some interest. But he is also interested in crows in the park 🙂

Berlin Day Hike: Puppy Tour Around Herrensee

Pavlov takes one or two kilos weekly and he really starts to enjoy the outdoors in the last days. We have a lot of fun teaching him how to get treats (easily, with those eyes!).
