  • And what fun it was! When Kirby and I showed up at the parking lot Sunday, I warned Stephanie that my 21-lb Westie mix has "short man syndrome"-- he gets aggressive with dogs bigger than himself, as though he thinks he has something to prove. (He's fine with smaller dogs)

    So we were both on our guard, and I told her I'd probably only go about halfway through the planned walk, then would head back to the parking lot. But after some brief initial rumbling as we first approached, Kirby quickly settled down as he realized we were going to be doing one of his favorite things - walking!

    We went the whole hour, and it flew by. Stephanie and I talked all the way, realized we had a past connection from years ago, and stayed in the middle with the dogs trotting along on the outside. There was no drama.

    It was a truly enjoyable time, and Kirby and I both got some needed exercise. We're looking forward to being there again this Sunday.
