Monday was my Birthday. I was able to spend it doing one of my favorite things. Walking in the woods with dogs!
I couldn’t help myself and we ended up taking an extra long walk as we visited some of my favorite spots. Lost Lake and the Hollyburn Fir.
We had a great pack with Bailey and Stella the Golden Retrievers and Logan and Beckem the Goldendoodles.
It’s always nice to see each one of them in the morning. Bailey regularly waits by the door for pick up, his tail gently starts swishing as he sees me come around the corner to pick him up. Stella is all wiggles when I pick her up. People regularly comment “What a Happy Dog!” as we walk to the truck. Beckem will come out and immediately sit with his back turned to get leashed (a sign of respect). And Logan is all goofy happy, but sits as soon as I tell him to so he can go visit his friends.
Once in the woods the dogs run about, playing chase, rolling in dirt, smelling the earth. They’re great reminders to live in the moment and enjoy those sunny days.
Oh and we saw a frog. A great hike!
