Walkies in the woods
And as we emerged from our walk, we encountered a group of canine aficionados preparing to walk their pets.
I hadn't realized before, how much sheer physical strength it takes to discipline and train one of these kindly behemoths. I asked if I could photograph their babies, and everyone was very cordial and polite. When I asked if I could pet the big puppies, again, everyone was welcoming. And the doggies - oh, what dear big sweethearts they are! Very polite, and gentle, very considerate of how easily people break, and very pleased to be seen and greeted.
And everyone who had a dog also had a large plastic bag to collect the Great Dane doodoo. I appreciate good citizens like them. Imagine the mess these giants could leave behind.
