These Sunday hikes along a new part of the Potomac are becoming a pattern, and I'm not complaining one bit.
The Sunday after Thanksgiving was a gorgeous, warm day and the first few trail parking lots we came to were full. Undaunted, Florian took us to a new one off a side road. This time, I had the sense to document where we were.
As always, Sandy was really good about staying with us and checking in, even when we saw other dogs up the trail.
When I was a kid in the Adirondacks, we would often get a beagle who showed up at our house, having lost its way after straying off track at the Beagle-Hare Club up the road.
Typical beagles! Those things will follow their noses forever.
I adore beagles, but am happy for now to have critters who stick around.
Are your critters creatures of the flock, or do they tend to wander?
What about you pittie parents and fosters--do your pitties follow their noses on the trail, or stay close?
