Thanks to Doppler I’ve started to get a great appreciation of night. I know it’s time to go when she climbs onto my lap. That’s her signal. She is purposeful and resolute. It’s time!
She doesn’t particularly like the cold and acts accordingly. She is efficient.
I put on my heavy jacket, picked up the leash (with bag dispenser) and an immense flashlight and headed out. Doppler walked to my right. That’s her preferred side.
She’s small, but the front steps pose no challenge to her.
Cold tonight and crisp. There were thin clouds. The Moon was low in the east–just rising.
We walked on the lightly frozen grass. It gave grudgingly with each step.
There are noises from the woods. Not my favorite thing. We’ve got critters of all types around. They want to avoid me. Right back atcha.
The stars are beautiful. Some nights before the Moon rises or after it sets the sky turns a very deep inky blue. The longer you’re out the more stars there are!
Even when the weather’s been bad it’s obvious Doppler and I have a mutual interest. Good doggie.
She’s already sound asleep on the sofa.
