i love my walks with this pup! last winter i went on frequent walks, but i had a lot of time on my hands that made it easy. nowadays life is very very busy, but because of this pup, i’m making more time for walks. the early morning ones are my favorite. just me and Solstice on an adventure through the woods. i’m trying to take more photos on our walks, and this pup is turning out to be a good photo walk buddy. he stops and waits for me when i’m taking photos, and watches me from his forest explorations while i snap away.
we walk along and i look for tracks and he sniffs for smells. sometimes he hangs behind, caught up in the great smell underneath a hemlock or the great taste of chewing on a beech branch. when i turn my head and look back at him and say his name, he gives me a look and lumbers ahead to catch up. with the fresh snow from yesterday, he spent the morning with a constant snow-beard. he’s at home in the woods.
