At least one of us was thrilled with more time to explore on the weekend now that the college football season has ended. Harper is not allowed to freely explore without being on her leash at home, with all the backyard visitors and an increase in coyote sightings and attacks in the area, so she believes a fair compromise should be that she gets to set the pace and choose the paths while we’re out wandering.
She also believes she should be able to choose how often we stop and
that she should not have to sit and pose during her valuable exploring time.
Sometimes I’m able to convince her to choose a path for a photo opportunity, but
her enthusiasm for my shots equals my enthusiasm for stopping every ten feet.
