Walkies!

The dogs and I went for walk today with them on leash and me really walking fast enough to be breathless. Probably only about 3 km return trip, but that's 2.9 km further than I could go three months ago. Go me!! We went down to the West Song waterway for the first time in so long I can't remember - my hip had been so bad that it was painful walking much distance and I was foregoing leash walks for places where the dogs could run and I could throw a ball for Robinson. It was grey and cloudy this morning, but the sun came out this afternoon and it was beautiful and we saw a seal and Canada geese and other dogs and it was lovely.

I'll do my Thanksgiving post tomorrow, but I already know that one thing I'm thankful for is my new hip.

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…
