One of my favorite things to do is to walk my dogs in the woods, of course there are times when it’s very frustrating, but in general just being together in nature enjoying the beauty that exists around us helps to clear my head. It is a precious time for me, just me and the dogs.
Many a blog post has evolved from a walk with my dogs, I mean I ALWAYS know what I’m thinking, but sometimes it’s fun to imagine what they are thinking as well.
Here are the thoughts from a recent winter walk.
Me walking into the park with yak tracks on my feet: Damn this shit is hard to walk in, even with cleats!
Delilah: Yay! Sampson’s not on leash anymore so I don’t have to worry about banging into his big ass.
Sampson: I wonder if there’s anyone in the field? DOG! I hope there’s someone in the field.
Sampson turns to the right and heads up to another area where he typically meets people and dogs, running ahead of Delilah and me.
Me as I slosh and slip up the hill with my thighs screaming in protest: Who’s bright idea was it to go up the hill, Sampson?
Sampson: Why you rolling me under the bus Mama? No one told you to play follow the leader.
Delilah: I need to get this woman some wheels, it’d be a whole lot easier dragging her around if she had wheels on her feet.
As you could see from the first photo quite a bit of thawing had taken place, in fact as of today we there is not a speck of snow left. We have some low areas that tend to fill up with rain or in this case, melting snow.
Me as I sloshed through a puddle: Great my left boot leaks.
Sampson: Why does she keep calling me back to her when she’s not doing anything fun?
Delilah: Who keeps leaving this wonderful piles of deliciousness up here? It must be those elves I hear Mama speak of.
We head to the field and Sampson always alert for people in the field is definitely intrigued by what he thinks is a person. He approaches cautiously and I can see his fur is slightly raised as he’s unsure what this is.
Then he realizes it’s what’s left of a snowman.
Sampson: Well you’re not a person, here’s what I think of you.
Delilah: Do you see any little delicious piles? Do you? Huh?
Me: Shit, the right boot leaks too.
Do you have these kind of thoughts on your walks or is it just me?
