It seems that lately, anytime we go for a “walk” with Sophie (and I use the term loosely), it takes FOREVER to get anywhere. Walking with Sophie involves inspecting every pebble, every rock, every insect, and every blade of grass along the way. Sometimes, it just involves sitting, because obviously walking 2 steps is just exhausting!
When there are puddles involved, there is often splashing:
But there are always decisions to be made. Which puddle to splash in, which rock to pick up, which flower to smell, which bench to climb on, which curb to try to walk and balance on, and which stone to sit on, because they are obviously all different.
There is obviously a method to her madness, and I’m happy to play along. If we’ve got no where to be, or not much to do, I’m happy to see where she goes, and just follow her.
