article clipper Thoughts From The Woods
 

This past weekend I had the pleasure of heading up to North Conway, NH to do a little hiking with Katie (the girl) and Callie (the girl’s canine companion). We went on a couple of moderate hikes, but the part that I found so fascinating, was the way that Callie approached the mountain. Callie is a mutt, but she’s largely a Great Pyrenees. Her breed is a mountain dog, and to see her get out on an actual mountain was a real treat. You could tell she was finally doing what she was born to do. She’s a fifty pound dog and she dragged my 200lb frame up and down two mountains, pulling the whole way.

She was in her element, always pulling towards the next obstacle. She came home exhausted, and elated.

I can’t wait until I’m finally doing what I was born to do…
