adventures of Manni the wonderdog

Where is Waldo? (Manni, I mean Manni)

Lend me your ear, would ya?

Life has been busy and so have we. Creating memories that last a few lifetimes is starting to get stressful – if you ask the dog, that is.

As you can see we officially started Beach Season, albeit it being just a liiiittle too chilly for human-no-fur-me. Manni thought it was just right.

But the right kind of provisions make for a nice afternoon and the satisfied yawning at the end of the day is worth a couple of very cold hands and ears 🙂


where’s my pig ear??


So the next day was preeeeeetty exciting, too. Because we went to Grandma’s house! and amidst all the big a-do there…. I lost Waldo.

I mean Manni. Really. I did mean to say Manni. But you know where I’m coming from when you see where I found WaManni. If you can find him too, that is… apparently he was reaaally tired (still) and found himself a place to sleep. He could have told me, at least. But nooooooo…

I don’t know no Waldo.

After that much excitement we took a little pit-stop at our favorite Manni-Court-Appointed rehab/physio place. Massages: booooooo, says Manni. Exercises: Yaaayy!!

I ain’t missin’ nuttin’!

And then, and then, we took excitement to new heights and got a Manni-Mobile to better be able to transport the Royal Carriage.  And to go places far and wide. World, watch out. We’re officially on the road now!! (well, you know, on weekends, if work permits and it’s not too cold …)

Road trippin’, baby.

First time ever on the road to memories.

(you recognize a tripawd-home immediately by the number of rugs… 🙂 )

So you can see: busy, busy, busy is what we are and plan on staying. Making the most of the available time.

i’ll leave you today with a tired pup on a meadow (just because it’s cute 🙂 ) and a slow-motion study of The Tripawd Walk.

Much love from over here

      😊 look to the quadrant on the right of the barbecue thing.

    Manni, where are you? Maaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnniiii?
    Aha! I’ve spied you by the sweet stripe on your nose. You can’t hide from me, Manni, I’m going to find you and give you a MASSIVE hug, ha ha. I know you don’t like that, but what can we do. You are such a handsome, smoochable boy. And you move so well, too. Manni, you are an athlete.

    Did you seriously buy the ManniMobile to take him on even better adventures? On toast, Tina. On, Toast. And we salute you for it!

    Meg, Clare and Elsie Pie xxx

    • tinsch

      Yes, we sorta did. and yes. I know I know… on toast. you’re right.
      as Sally said: Waldo and his Court Jester…

    I found Waldo with his white fur. Yes Manni, you should tell your Mom where you are so she does not worry more about you ! Great pictures and videos! The slow motion sure shows you how much force the front leg does take.
    Manni looks very graceful to me, I did not see anytime but ! He looks like a quad running on the beach, you can’t tell until he comes in closer!
    Glad to see you guys are having loads of fun and now your Manni Mobile.
    You have to add that on the vehicle somewhere ! Three paws too:)
    Holly & Purrkins

    • tinsch

      Holly, you are absolutely right! It says Manfred on his Royal Carriage already, so we should really add ManniMobile to the vehicle (it’s kind of corny though, because Manni and Manfred is a true Trucker’s name in German, lol!! 🙂 )
      And the three paws are a definite must!!! Great idea!! We were thinking of literally flying the Tripawds flag in form of the bandanna 🙂
      big smooch to my lovely purrrrrrrrkins!!

    OOOMMMDDDD!!! I couldn’t find Waldo Manni until you gave the clue!! Even then I had to get the magnifying glass out! The shiny white muzzle helped!! Cute photo! ALL the photos of Manni are ALWAYS CUTE!! And Mannie SMILES!!! Love the photos when he smiles! 🙂

    Yeah Manni, we humans are a bit whackynwhen it comes to building a lifetime of memories. It can interfere with a dog’s naptime!! And the pictures,…oh my goodness…we humans cannot put the camera down!! See, dogs hold memories in the heart, and we humans do too, but we need pictures to help us!

    The videos are SPECTACULAR!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 That boy runs like the wind…even in slow motion! 🙂 🙂 To see Manni so happy, so carefree, so joyful is magical! This is what we all hope for when we start this journey 🙂

    And to add the exclamation point to ” making memories”…MANNI HAS HIS OWN TRIPAWD FRIENDLY MOBILE HOME and his own human Chauffeurs!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Nope, Manni ain’t missin’ nuttin ‘ baby!!! 🙂

    Such a fun blog from Waldo…er…Mznni 🙂 🙂 🙂 Made us all smile today! 🙂 🙂 Keep on rockin’ sweet boy!! 🙂

    Lots of love and a whole bunch of hugs!! 🙂

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    • tinsch

      I think we’ll just be “Waldo and his Court Jester” from now on, served on toast, I should add!
      We love you right back, Sally!!

  6. benny55

    PS…Yeah, the background setting that nature gave Manni for the meadow photo is absolutely stunning!! 🙂

  7. Jeanette

    I loved seeing Manni RUN!! Such a handsome boy and what adventures he’s having.

    Give him a big hug from us 💕

    Jeanette, Angel Boone and Boone’s Earthly Sidekick Tuck 💕🌈🐾

    • tinsch

      He said “rightbackatcha!!” ! (He’s not sure about Tuck yet but he’ll come around, I’m sure if he gets to see more pictures. 🙂 )

    Wow, Manni sure can run. I’d say his rehab is really paying off as he looks so balanced. What a star!
    I finally found him hiding after looking awhile. Yes, his white gives him away. That was fun.
    Enjoy your travels in Manni’s carriage.

    Manni you look fabulous! Other dogs envy your life you know that don’t you? And now you’ve got your very own moving doggymobile to make life even more exciting? Well done Manni. By the way it looks like you’ve got your own set of beautiful bloomers just like Meg! Course you being a manly man we’ll have to find a better word than bloomers won’t we? Hugs to you!

    • tinsch

      Oh yes, indeed, we have a serious set of bloomers! Having longer legs than Meg means they don’t cause us much trouble apart from the regular comb-through. In German I would call them what translates as “pants”, or trousers. Maybe “knickerbockers” would be fitting for a studly male?? 🙂 🙂
