|FIVE-0 (w/ Rumi)|
Coercion became enticement
with a little soft soap.
(They were offered a discount on a shelter dog for their
assistance with some photographic skills,
but they apparently thought we meant
they could have ALL the dogs, not just ANY dog...so they smiled and
just kept trekking...)
|THIS IS BEFORE THE KISSES--afterwards would have been, well,|
let's just say..... WET.
Drying off a little
Bessie, being the sweet and charming spotted beauty she is,
spent some time on the deck above the "Killer 192".
(Steps we climb down, then up, then down again...for some reason)
This is where she discovered HER New Year's new friend,
Now Gabe isn't just an ordinary dog, in fact, he has some
When he thought time looked right, he took a few minutes to...
..."DO the VIEW"
as I like to call it.
(He will be spotlighted on this blog very soon--keep half an eye open!)
So back to our Police Woman, FIVE-O (not quite Angie Dickerson,
but...definitely as intelligent).
(If you are wondering what the theme is here, I am really not sure.
It may be something related to the highway mess at the beginning.)
Rumi made a New Year's friend this fine day, too.
Five-0 was so well-behaved,
so willing to be an attentive hiking companion!
Rumi is a petite woman--don't get me wrong--
she's definitely athletic and capable--
just petite! Five-O is...NOT petite.
This was not an issue, because Five-O is just one of those dogs
that understands her role with humans.
Rumi was totally thrilled to enjoy a hike with her.
Unfortunately, the trail ended
way too soon.
I always regret this part.
I have to come to an endpoint,
just like the hike.
So, here's a few extra photos
so I can keep going....and you can keep smiling.....
