No photos today as I left my phone at home, but it was a quick walk up to The M with Jeff and MD. Once at the benches, while Jeff enjoyed birding I decided to walk up to the top of The M…a few hundred yards further.
I got up there and looked down to where Jeff was entrenched in birding, and there was MD, looking up at me. Can’t be anything wrong with her eyesight. And then, she started up…not on the proper trail, but alongside The M, itself. That’s straight up!
She took a few breaks and checked for me, but up she came. Wow! Mountain Dog of yesteryear has returned!
If you’ve been reading along over the last few years you’ll know that Indy, our bichon, aka MD, is now 11 years old. She used to be ready for most any combination of distance and altitude gain that we came up with, but we’ve decided to let her retire from the more strenuous walks. So, today was truly a surprise! She celebrated her climb with a big slurp of water!
