I get dressed and crab my camera gear. All this time he's been quietly waiting for me to say: "You're coming with me, let's go!". Usually when we walk, he's in a leash but sometimes he can run free and do his goofy things.
When I stop to take a picture, he sometimes just appears behind my back and sits without saying a word, just like in this picture. Thank god he is a big boy with big paws, so I already know he's there (this time of the year I love how the snow squints under his paws). Otherwise I might have a heart attack..
