We have a "love affair" with our neighbor's dog, a strikingly handsome Westhighland Terrier named "Latte". Our neighbors graciously indulge this "love affair" with their dog.Whenever we appear at their door, they simply smile and say, "do you want Latte?"
We couldn't think of a better way to start off the New Year than a wintry stroll around the Lafayette Reservoir with our favorite canine friend.
A new adventure awaits...
The view of the reservoir from the parking lot. It looks a lot colder than it really was.
Alright, let's go...
Right in step. Such a well trained dog!
These mile markers really help you go the distance. I'm so tired after one lap. I see folks much older than I take several laps around the reservoir!
How cool is this! A dog sized drinking fountain!
Have you ever seen this breed before?
His owners informed us that he was a French Shepherding Dog.
Latte was impressed, as were we!
Another mile marker. I'm feeling good.
Signs of Spring?
What's this up ahead?
Every Christmas, this particular tree gets decorated. I don't know why, but it seems to be some sort of tribute.
Possibly a shrine to beloved furry friends who have passed on but will never be forgotten.
We've never had a dog of our own, but I'm beginning to understand why they are called, "man's best friend".
A perfect spot for a winter's day picnic
The final leg.
One tired, but satisfied Westy!
Happy 1st day of 2010
