Close to home
I thought it might be a good challenge to find something nice to shoot in my neighbors' yards on my 1/2 mile loop with hound. Stealing from the neighbors in a legal way, if you will. I was limited to curb appeal....truly curb, as I don't suppose it is polite to go traipsing across thy neighbors' yards without first asking permission...well except for my across the street neighbors. I knew they weren't home, and even if they were they wouldn't mind. It's good fortune to have good rapport with your across the street neighbors.
Tula did not particularly like this walk....too slow, and we stopped next to things we never stop at. For a timid dog with 10 million fear-filled hang ups, this is very stressful. Anything that is not exactly the same as it always is, is stressful for Tula. Rescuing has it's pluses and minuses....for instance, she doesn't chew on things and never has accidents in the house. There's a flip side to everything though. How scary can a hammock really be? An empty hammock, that's not moving at all....sigh.....
