First Spring Walk

Today is the first day of Spring and it is beautiful out. Although there is still snow on the ground, the temperatures are mild, the snow is melting, the sun is shining and the birds are singing. I went out walking with the dog down main street.
Sherman just loves people. He thinks everyone is a long lost friend and treats them as such. Here he sees some people coming up the sidewalk. You can't tell by the picture, but his tail was wagging in anticipation of greeting them. I didn't know it until they came closer that it actually was some people I knew from church. They gave Sherman exactly what he wanted. Attention!



Here's one of Sherman's favorite stops: Ken's Hot Dog Stand. Ken has been faithfully setting up this stand every day of the week except Sundays for about 25 years or so. It's a great place to grab a quick lunch. Sometimes we come down for a hot dog in the summer. Invariably, Sherman will end up with a bite (and sometimes more if one is careless). No such luck today. We only got to savour the aromas!
Happy Spring everyone!

Your walk looks much drier and cleaner than mine was.

What a neat post. It was fun to see Main Street and Sherman. He sounds a lot like our dog Hugo.

sydney is the same way, it is as though everyone is suposed to love her. she is very eager to meet everyone. we taught her to sit when people walk or run by so that she doesn't go up to them right away.

I think Sherman was very much enjoying himself! Glad you got to take a walk.
