|He semed drawn to our female hound <3 and connected with|
Max, Andy's one-year old heeler. In fact, these three were our hiking
companions that day!
|As soon as we started our trek, |
Monsoon, Max and Andy
[I was basically the refreshment server and photo lady :-)]
On the trail with Andy, Max and Monsoon
like I thought he might be!
and, most of the time, he was pretty easy to control!
(Remember: gentle spring mist.)
Monsoon wasn't heavily into tracking scents like many dogs
I've been on trails with (which by the way
can slow you down to a dead stop frequently sniff..sniff..sniff!),
but he sure loved to LISTEN to the sounds all around him.
So attentive! Snap of a branch to the west! Head quickly turned.
Woodpecker tapping in the valley below! Whoa!-still-shhhh-
--WHAT was THAT?!
As you can see, Monsoon is a beautiful terrier mix. Brindle patches.
Extremely sleek, muscular build. Very agile with lively gait.
Persistent wind, heavy rain?
Well, persistent, yes.
THE FUTURE...oh PLEASE.
