Zoa is in fine shape here on Sicily.

Coastal Dog

On the way to the river outlet among the plastic.

Morning run

A new friend on the beach. Then we drive around the island and at San Vito Lo Capo we take on the local "hill".


We return to spend time with family and friends, most of whom like seeing Zoa again. The weather is cold, but we do get to see some snow in Braunwald and Wildhaus.

Zoa meets Asi on the final day we are in Zurich. Beside the Sihl river. And again.

There is snow.


We hang around at some TV company, but walks down a valley and in some woods.


It rains


Also rains


Still raining


Rain, then sun. Many friendly dogs and dog owners. But there is mud, which often means a morning "Hose down". Baaaa...

Zoa on Gwithian beach.

And in Trevellas Cove before walking along the beach to Trevaunance Cove for coffee and a chat with the owners of a lurcher.

Zoa, like me, seems to enjoy the campsite.


And his teeth are quite clean.


Love his look when he listens to a couple of Vizslas singing to a broom.

Barking Dogs

At Bre-Pen he climbs over the rocks.

Back to Devon before setting off to London and then
