I thought I would share with you some of the things I see when I go out for my 5K walk/run about 4 times per week. I hope you enjoy these...
(ah...the next hill awaits)
(hills, hills, hills!)

You may have noticed him in several of the pictures. This is the young wolf hybrid that wandered up to my house and stayed for about a month. He was very sweet and gentle, and looked forward to our daily walks. He crawled out from under my car every morning as soon as I opened the door to my house, and wagged his tail, eager to go for our walk. He stayed right with me the whole way, except once, when we were met by 4 large, vicious-sounding dogs. He turned and went back to check out a neighbor's chickens, I think. I went on past the big dogs, who stayed right at the edge of their yard, and when I was walking back, I didn't see him anywhere. I got home and he was sitting in the front yard, waiting on me. (I snapped his picture. It's the one I posted about coming home again.)
I really enjoyed him while he was with me, but I couldn't keep him. My male dog tolerated him for about three weeks but then became very territorial and began to snap at him. I tried to find the owners with an ad in the local newspaper, but no one claimed him so I reluctantly took him to the shelter, where the animal control officer seemed to be really taken with him. I hope he found a good home.
Happy Sunday, everyone! Make the most of this beautiful day. It will never come again!
