My Super Saturday with Lovely Lucille

For weeks now, my Missus has been trying to plan a get-together with my great blogging friend Lucille and her humans. Well, we finally made the trip over to meet them on Saturday and what a fantastic time we all had.

This is Lucille. She's booti-ful three year old Great Dane.

Our meeting place was the maginficent Lake Garda, Italy's largest lake. Here's some photos from our day out...

Me and Dad and Lucille with her Dad, Mario, setting off on our walk along the shores of Lake Garda.

Yippee! After a short time, our humans decided it would be OK to let us off leash for a while.

"Come on Lucille, let's go swimming."

Of course, Yours Truly is right at home in the water.

Lucille, on the other hand, is a true 'lady'. She categorically refused to get her hair wet!

Bah! I had to play my water sports alone!

Soon we were back on leash continuing our walk...

...with Lucille leading the way!

Before too long, we found ourselves in the lovely town of Lazise. This is me and Dad with Lucille and her Mum and Dad - Nicoletta and Mario.

Following a short stay in Lazise, it was time to make our way back to the cars. Hooray more time for fun and...


...and more swimming (with Nicoletta and Mario cheering me on!)

As usual, Lucille decided to stay firmly on dry land!

Just in time for some portrait shots...

The lovely Lucille.

Me and Lucille...

...and finally, the whole 'pack'.

What a wonderful day out and such lovely friends to share it with. I can't wait to meet up with Lucille, Nicoletta and Mario again soon!
