Caucasian Shepherds Need Love Too

Go ahead, give ’em a tickle

Another road trip into Kakheti. This time to Akhmeta along the restored road over the pass and looping back via another swimming hole. A day full of Swiss cheese (though I have my doubts, seeing as it had no holes), picnicking, and jumping off loose rocks into presumably deep water. Oh, and I got to drive a Niva again. Ypa!

As we consumed our second picnic meal of the day, after a swim, the two dogs above snuck over to say hello. Luckily Hans keeps dog food in his car. He does not own a dog but my assumption is just that he’s an eccentric snacker.

Bred to protect livestock from wolves, the Caucasian shepherd is something of a fluffy badass, weighing over 100 pounds and yet still able to leap a capital T in a single bound.

Even without their instruments these guys look cool.

Fancy old school ads somewhere in Kakheti where you can buy ice cream.

This photo would be a lot funnier if these guys weren't standing at the scene of a car accident.

Hans makes mental notes of Caitlin's perfect headstand.

In the hands of a man from Bern, this multi- tool is lethal.
