A very sad day: The Prince of Satteleggli is dead

He went up to Alp Satteleggli for an incredible 18 years, although the last two he rode in the car: Now “Prinz”, the Bernese Mountain Dog (Berner Sennenhund), is gone. On Tuesday morning he wasn’t on his favorite blanket in his winter home in Gstaad. The Reichenbachs found him outside, lifeless. It’s the loss of a long-time family member.

“He was really struggling lately, and we had already agreed to have him euthanized”, said a tearful Theres Reichenbach, “now he spared us that painful task.” Always good-natured, friendly and calm, Prinz was also one of Caroline’s favorites.
