Canine Rhythms

We have a canine visitor with us for a while - he is a Queensland heeler.  It has been a while since we had a dog in the house.  We lost our Golden several years ago and I was, quite frankly, unwilling to bring another dog in the house.    This one is a bit more frenetic than our Golden but he is lots of fun.  He is an exuberant walker.  He has seemed to enjoy sniffing out the neighborhood in the first few days.  He gets walked at least twice a day.

That gives you a reason to get up in the morning and a time (or two times) to reflect on the state of the world.   When you walk dogs you can carry on a conversation but it is mostly with yourself.   In the first few days he has been with us, he was walked in the rain a lot.  Like Molly, our Golden, he does not seem to mind the wet weather.

So far it has been a kick to have him with us.
