Down the road with Smooch ~ February 2014

Every day after I'm done working, Smooch and I go for a walk. It's as much a part of the daily routine as brushing my teeth. 
I wouldn't know what to do between 5 and 6 p.m. if I didn't take Smooch for a walk. I look forward it, she looks forward to it, 
it's what we do. I listen to an audiobook or a podcast on my iPod while Smooch listens for coyotes.
Yesterday I was finishing up "The Wisdom of Donkeys" – a very good book but the worst narrator ever. 
If I ever meet him in person, I will wring his flat, monotone, unemotional neck. Now I will buy the print version 
and really read it so I can underline stuff and dog-ear pages. Such is the downside of audiobooks.



I really like this new photo I took of Smooch, but the color doesn't add much to it at all.



Some pictures, like some books, are just better in black and white.

  1. She is beautiful either way. Sometimes the lighting is just not right. In any case
    there is no snow chez toi. Lucky you to be able to walk with your dog and stand
    up instead of skating around on ice on the road. Wishing for spring!

  2. She's so pretty. Wonder if she's like so soft boots for your walks down the rocky road?

  4. I really liked the color version of Smooch's picture. On my monitor it has a colorized feel.

    Argh, I know what you mean about narrators making or breaking an audio book, I'm listening to A Song of Fire and Ice (Game of Thrones) and the narrator is so overly dramatic that it's kind of ruining the experience.

  6. I see you now trust her to sit-stay while you take a pic. Good girl, Smooch! And if I lived where the scenery was as gorgeous as yours, I'd walk for an hour every day also. But I'd listen to those coyotes with Smooch.

  8. I'm another vote for the color version. The soft palette is very elegant and soothing.

  9. Ahhhh..beautiful Smooch and sitting so nicely! Hear ya about bad narrators of good books. I'll take a bad book with a good narrator over a good book with a bad narrator any day.

  10. I think the color is quite lovely - unusually pastel for your geographic location.

  12. I loved The Wisdom of Donkeys. Even if one doesn't own donkeys, it's a good life lesson.

  14. She's sitting so pretty. Have you already mentioned how she got her name and what breed or mix she is?
