We have been out and about quite regularly Cheyenne and I, and she has taken a whole new interest in her old walks. I think she really does get bored after a while even though I try to vary her trails as much as possible. I've brought her in to town as well and I snagged this picture on the fly of her not bothering the local chicken population:
She is the most perfectly behaved dog. Thunderstorms don't bother her and when my wife is away as she has been this summer, I leave Cheyenne alone at home and she is entirely content all night while I am away at work.
One likes to think of a friendly old yellow Lab as the ideal chick magnet. No such luck in Key West where Cheyenne is a total gay man magnet. Meet Benjamin and friends who loved my dog and she liked them. Not surprising really (sniff) they way they lavished their attentions on her. "To bad you aren't bi," a gay friend of mine remarked when I told him of the encounter. I guess so.
August is not a great time of year for walking the streets of Key West in a thick fur coat. Also I have noticed the pavement is getting warm for her paws and she hugs the shade or keeps moving nervously around. She knows her own mind does my girl and a few times when I have offered to let her out of the car she stays put and looks at me like I'm stupid. I try to keep her walks to early morning and evening but in any event she sets the pace, which frequently involves taking a break.
I missed her horribly while I was away and she's another reason I'm glad I'm back. Orin of Old Skool Scootin' describes dog pictures as gratuitous so I'm closing with another kind of picture.
A gratuitous shot of a banana tree.
At least I'm pretty sure it's a banana tree but I'm no botanist.
