adventures of Manni the wonderdog

Entertainment in rainy times

It feels like I’ve only written pretty negative stuff so far so I thought I’d just share what we’ve been up to the first few days of the new year.

The year started out ok, weatherwise, so our forest walks are fairly standard by now:


Enchanting dog in enchanted forest.

Manni just loves being in the forest and run around on the fallen leaves. I was too late to capture how he actually played with a tree branch. He’s not done that in ages and I am so happy to see that!

Two days ago the weather turned into something atrocious. gale-force winds and rain. Yay. We do go outside, obviously, but none of us is having any fun with that so we have to make do at home:

And this is the face that looks at you after:

Pretty useless, uninformative post, I’ll give you that, but fun nonetheless 🙂


  1. We love useless, uninformative posts with pictures of dogs living life with joy, in the way that only dogs can!

  2. Don’t be daft! How could lovely pics of Mr Manni ever be thought of as useless. Thanks for this insight into your day. Meg says can she visit the enchanted forest. Looks magical and Manni looks so at home in this beautiful environment.

    • Well, Meg should just come over and visit the forest with us 🙂 You’re not THAT far away

      • Where are you exactly? I know Germany quite well.

        • Just outside of Hamburg, north-west bound.

          • Hamburg is beautiful. You used to be able to get s boat from quite near here (Harwich) to Hamburg but, as far as I know they’ve discontinued them. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Germany and lived near Dortmund for a while and also years ago near Stuttgart. I haven’t been for a long time now because I understand it’s difficult in some places with the laws concerning Staffs, and my Elsie is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I don’t know what it’s like in practice. Anyway, here’s to you and Manni!

          • I have actually taken that ferry myself, I went to uni in Edinburgh years ago. I would usually go from Newcastle to Amsterdam but have done Harwich-Hamburg,too. And yes, they did discontinue that I think. They are starting to abandon those “dangerous-dog” laws. In my state they already have, Hamburg will in the next months. I would love a European Tripawd Party, so if you happen to get back anywhere near here, give us a shout! 🙂

  3. I was wondering how a front amp would do with that game. We have that one also but Elly is a rear amp. In fact she was playing with it last night as we are having some rainy days too (California).
    I love the pic of Manni in the enchanted forest!
    Happy New Year!

  4. @oooove those pictures ofnyiu Manni! You just make me smile because you are soooo cute!!

    And posting pictures of Manni being happy being Manni is DELIGHTFUL, not “useless”! It just warms my heart to see Manni just gettin’ on with living life, always staying in the present. He clearly loves being out in nature…And he looks like a calendar cover in his enchanted forest! 🙂

    And look at him mastering thst game! I love ho, when you pointed, he looked where you pointed and went right for the prize!!

    And YAY for a European Tripawd Pawty!! Make it happen!!

    Give that sweet voy extra treats from me tonight! 🙂

  5. Useless? Haha not on your life, this is wonderful! Look at that smile of his, and how you look back at him. The bond is clear, you two are made for each other. What a great team you make.

    And boy that would be so cool to see Tripawds in Europe have a gathering. It would be the first ever and we would love to be a part of it.
