These are the Black Russian Terrier puppies we went to see in Winterthur. Our friends picked one out and will bring him home in October. These puppies are 10 weeks old and HUGE.

There is nothing like a good belly rub!

The three adults. You can't get a good sense of scale here, but these dogs stand about waist high!

100 Strangers Series: 18

On Sunday we drove to Winterthur just outside of Zurich to help our friends meet their new puppy. Before reaching our final destination, we ate lunch at Tres Amigos (we are always looking for good Mexican food). The food was surprisingly good for Switzerland! This photo is of Michelangelo Valdez (or Dominik) who was our wonderful waiter. He is from Paraguay and speaks at least three languages that we know of: German, Spanish, and English.

Facing the Alps

It seems sunflowers enjoy looking at the view too!

Two Things Challenge: Here/Gone

I watched this rabbit for awhile running around here in the fields.

At the same time I spotted this fox, but he was too far gone for me to get a good shot of him.

These flowers always remind me of helipads. I think the bugs agree with me!

I've always loved the colors in these bugs.

I am working with the enthusiasm of a man from Marseilles eating bouillabaisse, which shouldn't come as a surprise to you because I am busy painting huge sunflowers. - Vincent Van Gogh
