(MARCH 26, 2010) My wife, Elizabeth, and I walked on the Riverwalk this morning alone. We were without Sadie.
Sadie had an 8:00 appointment at the spa where she went to get "prettified." She will get a bath, her nails trimmed, and her ears cleaned. She is going to look wonderful and smell better.
As we walked this morning we enjoyed just strolling, looking at nature and taking pictures. Of course, the major part of our conversation went something like this:
"Oh! Look at those geese. I'll bet Sadie would have enjoyed seeing them."
"Those geese usually fly when we come near. I guess that is because Sadie is not with us. I sure miss Sadie."
"Sadie would have enjoyed the morning cool air. Sure miss that dawg."
OK....we did talk about some other stuff, but I'll have to admit it sure was easier taking pictures without the dog on the leash. However, often when Sadie needs to stop to do what Sadie does, I see something that I had never seen before - a flower, a new bird, a bud on a tree. Occasionally I miss a shot because Sadie has a different agenda and pulls right when I've focused and am ready to take a shot; I don't mind - there will always be other pictures to take on the Riverwalk. There is always something new, and each trip down there brings forth a new adventure and new photo opportunities.
It was another great morning on the Riverwalk. But . . . we sure missed Sadie. I'll probably take her down there this afternoon - she'll like that.
