R escorted us on the trails again today. I think that he knows what his job is. I asked both dogs to "take a bow" but he insisted upon standing tall and burly like a body guard!
The wonderful sounds of birds singing in the treetops made me pause there for longer than usual. Shyla snuggled against R and fell asleep. He definitely makes her more comfortable.
We had a peaceful ride, filled with the joy of the two dogs romping together.
It was the warmest ride of the year, with me in shorts and short sleeves! What a glorious feeling after a winter of being bundled up. I have no doubt that it will snow here again (and I'm rooting for that!) but I enjoyed this day.
You can tell that it was warm because the dogs were panting for one of the first times this year!
Shyla has seemed very happy and unworried on our rides with R. I think that we'll take him with us for one more day, and then we'll try it on our own. R will go back to his routine of running with the Runner. We sure have appreciated how R has bolstered Shyla's confidence since that day that the woman decked her.
I hope that you're having a great spring holiday weekend!
