Things My Dog Teaches Me

Fort Stevens, Oregon

Sophie will be four years old at the end of the month, but she acts like she’s going on four months. She’s still 3/4 puppy…



She’s a Welsh Terrier. I like a dog (and kids and friends) who misbehave a bit. I also wanted a dog that was full of piss and vinegar. As Rich often says, “You got what you wanted in spades!”

Sophie, like all dogs, is totally in the NOW. She doesn’t remember what happened five minutes ago because what’s happening right now is freaking amazing.

What a great way to live an engaged life.

She also never passes up a chance to play. As Rich and I are on this adventure, we’re aspiring to her wisdom more and more.
