What a weird week since the last Hachi Chronicle. Hachi loves social distancing, which involves being able to go in the forest all by ourselves.
A few weeks ago, someone asked what Hachi looks like when he's relaxed and playful. We get to see his "Happy Hachi" look while he plays with his sister.
Soon after I took the photo above, a huge storm bore down on us. We got 2' of snow.
Hachi and his sister had a blast together plowing through the snow.
Prancing through the snow!
He and his sister searched for places where the snow wasn't so deep. One place was on our driveway, where they had a wonderful time playing the day after the storm.
Loving Hachi has taught me a lot of empathy. He is afraid, and that is what leads to his bad reactions like when I tried to reposition him for nail clipping. Rather than feeling angry at him, I feel even more determined to help him with his fears.
We love our Hachi.
