This past weekend the basset gang and I gathered for another doggy walk (to raise money for the Animal Welfare Society of Helderberg) at the Blaauwklippen winery. My good buddy Lola (and human Welna) joined us for the walk.
On our way, we met a new basset, Oscar. He asked me where I got my styling sun hat but I had to tell him he would have to go to Canada to get one!
Just like last time, we walked through the beautiful vineyards. Just look at this weather! This scenery! The Olympian-athlete-like-bassets bustling to the finish line!
By the way, note how there is no one in front of us, and contrary to rumours (probably started by that pack of yappy dachshunds at the walk–clearly driven to jealousy by our superior height and ear-length) it is not because we were so slow that everyone passed us!
There were two options: a 1.3 km and four km hike. Because our humans were so tired, we chose to do the 1.3 km hike. Here is a photo of a pack of dogs coming back from the four km hike. (Showoffs! Just look at the way they so boastfully bustle by)
After the walk, all the bassets gathered to talk of their exploits and plans for world-domination
As per usual, Trevor gave me extra tummy rubs
Max, Trevor’s basset, got jealous of my extra tummy rubs and my cool hat so I took it off to make him feel better but Max always has to take things one step too far! He stole Trevor’s hat and engaged in a fashion faux-pas!
Of course, no day is complete for my parents in South Africa without a wine tasting. So I waited patiently outside while they went in for a taste
