Weekend fun! (with pics)

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
We went and stayed at a friend's 200 acre family ranch over the weekend. It was so much fun! We played in a nearby river where there was some small rapids, swam in their swimming pond, and played with their dogs - a 3 month old Labrador and an 18 month old Viszla.

The lab loved to play, but as soon as he got tired he turned into a snuggler - just had to be nearby cuddling. He came with us on a walk and got scared by some cows, and on the way back past them again he cowered behind my legs and tried to run away, so I had to pick him up and carry him past the big scary cows The Vizsla was just all energy - he could play all day and loved chasing anything that moved on the property, and would just bound into the pond when he got hot to cool off, and once he was done playing, he would come up and plonk his butt in your lap for a cuddle - such a sweetheart!!!

It was so nice to have a relaxing weekend away just lazing around in a gorgeous part of California.

I'd never heard of a Vizsla before and he was just to charming. He was in and out of the water all day and yet he didn't smell like "wet dog" at all. Apparently they don't have an undercoat which helps keep the smells away.

If we got a dog, a Vizsla would definitely be high on my list. I just loved how he'd sit in your lap - didn't care that he was 50+ lbs, he just wanted a cuddle! Definitely a fun weekend, I love having good connections...

Vizsla are very high energy - Two two required much walking/running etc. She did develop bad cateracts and artritis when she was about 10 years old and then cancer.

I believe the artritis is a breed issues - them being so large, etc.

I can say she was great with kids.

Wow! That place is gorgeous! I'm not an outdoors-type person and usually my idea of getting "with nature" is opening up my apartment window, but wow!!! I think I could even be enticed to go outside and sit in the shade there

Those dogs are gorgeous too, and I love the sleepy dog picture too. That little beige one looks like he's in heave sitting on your lap getting ear rubs.

The hills look like how it looks here in Southern California, but I imagine you didn't come down this far for your weekend get away. What part of California is this in?

We left Saturday morning and came back Sunday night, and had our neighbours pop in on Saturday to give them some tasty wet food, and have a bit of a play and cuddle with them. Lily was super cuddly last night, but the other two couldn't have cared less

OMG Another Vizsla!

Jake is a Vizsla mix and is FULL of energy! And you're right, he doesn't smell like wet dog at all. He's like having a hyper 3yr old in the house at all times.

Vizslas have great personalities and good with cats and kids too

Vizsla's are Hungarian Hunting dogs so yeah, they have the pitiful hound look sometimes

Hijack over....... sorry
