He’s been a delightful distraction, inspiration, and metaphor.
He’s massively curious and unfailingly enthusiastic.
He’s adventurous. Granted, he doesn’t get too far from his pack, but he’ll still have a go, and his range extends with every walk.
He’s brave… he’ll taunt his bigger stable mate, Clarus, until she tells him off. And then he’ll come back – again, and again, and again.
But he’s still loyal and affectionate – I’m learning to allocate a couple of minutes whenever I enter his world to be licked, nipped, and wagged at.
And at night he’ll happily go to his safe space, to rest, ready for the next day’s adventures.
And I know when I go downstairs tomorrow he’ll be utterly become with excitement at seeing me. What a great gift – an inspiration for the day.
I’ve never been a dog person before – but I’d recommend one wholeheartedly :-).
