I am pleased to note that, showing great faith in my resilient and unflappable nature, Gail added,
"I think he'll be OK. Not much fazes him these days".
And so it was I got to ride in the Breitenberg Seilbahn in the Bavarian Alps on Sunday afternoon.
I am now more than happy to recommend cable car travel to any of my canine friends, should you ever be offered the opportunity!
Later in the day we ventured across the nearby international border and I can now add Austria to the roster of countries I've visited.
When we arrived back home in Buchloe, Michael went downstairs to buy ice-cream sundaes for the humans. (Yes, our friends really do have an ice cream parlour on the ground floor of their apartment block. Imagine that!)
Renate and Michael have been such wonderful hosts that I am prepared to forgive them for not sharing on this occasion.
