Drizzly Tuesday

It was drizzling and in the high 50's this morning when Hiker and I got up. The hike yesterday must have tired me out because I went to bed around 9:30 last night. Hiker wanted to go for her walk, so I took her for a short walk (1 mile) because I had to get back home, have breakfast and get ready to head over to the senior center to attend my grief support group. Started out with only 4 of us there but later turned out to be 10 or 12 of us. When I got back home Hiker was so excited to see me. I made lunch and then Hiker and I went up to Stater Brothers market so I could pick up a few things. She is getting really good about riding in her hard sided crate in the back of the 4Runner. It's a good thing I decided not to sell it as I was thinking about doing right after Ben died. Hiker may not understand what to do when I say “Hiker Come”, but if I ask her if she wants to go for a walk, she sure understands that. She will even bark with little short barks at me telling me she wants to go. I had to take her for another longer walk this afternoon before she bounced off the walls again. We did 1.5 miles this time.


  1. Kay I'm so glad you found Hiker I think she will be a lot of help and company to you since Bens death. Take care, Jean.

  2. I think Hiker was just the right dog for you. You also seem to be the right person for her.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
