Schnauzer Group Walk

Hi everyone, it's me Louis for a change getting a look in on the blog world. I thought you'd like to hear about a grand day out I had yesterday on a walk - with a bucket load of Schnauzers!! The walk was at a little place called Sapperton, which is in The Cotswolds and it is just fab-u-lous for dogs. There were huge fields to run down:
Where shall we go next?
 There was a swimming pool for those who are that way inclined, not me obviously- I don't do water as you know!
Heidi and Ralphy going for a dip - mad fools!
 There were brilliant woods to run around and explore in! I had one hairy incident where Heidi and Brue, two of the bigger dogs were running so fast they ran straight into me and sent me flying - of course I used my best piggy squealing voice and got lots of fuss and treats!
So many woods...so little time - which way next chaps!?

There was a weeny pupster on the walk who had to be carried part of the way, she was a sweetie:
Let me down - I can walk, I can I can pleeeeease!
Another funny thing that happened was that a lovely lady called Sian and her husband thought my name was Luigi, not Louis. They called me this all day and my human didn't like to tell them, she did in the end and then decided she liked that name so has been calling me that too, hee hee. I quite like it, it has an Italian ring to it. Sian loved me for my long beard and took this shot of me
I think I have the Italian look about me don't you?
 This is Ralphy and me, another great buddy I met on the day:
Ralphy on the left, he's a Black and Silver mini - this was after the walk when we're nice and dirty!
 After a couple of hours of lovely walking and running we went to a pub for lunch and all sat in the garden, there was a sponsored dog walk in the area and there were more dogs than humans there! Some peeps had already left but this photo was taken of the group at the end, that's me on the left with my decrepit human who couldn't kneel down - how embarrassed was1??!! 
That's me with a big gap next to me - do I smell or something??!!

A Snuggle of Schnauzers - my new word for a group of us!!

Looks like a great day! And I think snuggle is the perfect word for a group of Schnauzers. :)

What gorgeous scenery!!!!!!!!!

And you're looking mighty fine, too, Louis.

Y'all look like you had a lotta fun.......what a glorious Snuggle of Schnauzers!!!!!!!!!!!

Santa, Minnie and Christmas said...

That white dog is Kenji, our doggie daddy. He spots a "horse-cut" hairstyle, that's what it's called here. Not everyone can accept that kind of haircut for a schnauzer but most of their friends said he carries it well.

JackDaddy said...

Wow, that is a great looking bunch of pups you got there!!!

Suka said...

hey Louis,

So nice to read your very funny post! What a witty pup you are! I am sure you don't smell. Perhaps the other pups were just intimidated by your beauty and out of respect let you have space. ;->

It looks like a fabulous place for a dog walk. I sure wish my human would take me there! I love the story of you flying through the air squealing! Too bad there is no video! I am glad you were not hurt, though, and super glad that you received lots of treats!

Love all the pics. And "Luigi" does suit you! :->

Ciao!

Suka

What a fantastic walk with lots of handsome pups. Luigi, uh, Louis, you were by far the most handsome.

Honeygo Beasley said...

Group walks are great, never been to one like that - instead, Chloe walked with two chihuahuas on Sunday - does that count as a group walk? We think so. Maybe just a little pack waltz around the block, but it's something.

Did I tell you Chloe's groomer is a Schnauzers lover - shows, owns, has owned more than one, many years, etc.? : ))) Yep, it's true.

Lorenza said...

Sure it was pawesome to meet all your friends!

Lincoln said...

Wow ! that's a lot of Schnauzers ! Really cute and happy bunch :-) Looks like you had fun!

My human's sister's boyfriend has two schnauzers, they are mini schnauzers like you and do a lot of agility and training, I haven't met them yet but I hope I will ... very soon!

Thank you very much for the comment you posted on my trouble boy post! Helps a lot !

Talk soon,
Your furiend, Lincoln

Isaac the wonder schnauzer said...

So many schnauzers in just one place! Woof. Photos looks like a good time was had by all. Except the swimming pool thing. Another pointless human invention with no good adaptation in the schnauzer world. Hope the paws carried you swiftly by that, Louis. Or Luigi, as you are known on the Continent!

Sagira said...

How cool to have such a cute group. :)

Tessa the Maltese said...

Oh it looks like you had such a wonderful time, ALL of you!

What a way to play in Cotswolds!

I thinks that I has to get some Maltese furiends for myself!

woo woos, Tessa

Bailey Be Good! said...

Looks like you had a great time!

Woofs & hugs,
