The Old Man in the heather. I love this old boy. Seven seasons under his belt and he still puts the hours in like a three year old.
I put a gps tracker on him for a week a couple of years ago out of curiosity and was nearly sick when I found out he was averaging 36 miles a day on the hill. That's one hell of a thing when you consider he did that four days a week, every week from August to November.
My dogs are all special to me and they each have their own quirks and personality. I try to treat them with the love and respect they deserve.
To me a dog is an essential part of life. I've always had a dog, often several. I can't imagine life without one. Yes, they make mess and frequently annoy @grousekeeperswife with their antics but they are my friends, my colleagues and my company. Tonight they are all in the house and lying by the fire. They will be back in the kennel soon but we are just enjoying a wee moment.
