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: Heralds Of Spring Around Dammwiesen

We took a family tour around Dammwiesen in a marvelous and intense light. Everything was blue and yellow, we were able to hike in t-shirts for the first time of the year and in the evening our cheeks were glowing from all the sun we got. Pavlov made friends with the donkeys but even if the oxes were still babies, he showed a lot of respect. Maybe the corns?
Anyway: Even in February there a already ticks. I took four Dermacentor reticulatus (Auwaldzecke, marsh ticks) out of his fur the next day. Time to get him vaccinated.

Berlin Day Hike: Winter Lights And A Dog In A Bag

We hiked around Schönower Heide in the North of Berlin this Sunday and everything was dusted with frost and snow. With the sun rays falling on the landscape there was really some magic in viewing this. Pavlov the dog is still a baby and just stops walking after a while. Of course we brought an extra “doggy bag” with us, to carry him around. In the evening, after all those adventures (we saw birds and deer and a lot of other dogs) he fell asleep on my wellingtons.
