As I’ve said before, one of the benefits of having a dog is it forces you to walk. Dogs also come in handy when you have nothing of interest to blog about. Is your life too boring for the blogosphere? Just slap up a cute doggie pic and call it a day! This picture shows Reggie resting during our recent hike up Lovewell Mountain. Not only does Reg like to hike, he likes to share snacks when we take a break. So when we stopped to admire Lovewell Mountain’s southeastern vista, Reg and I shared a handful of almonds before stretching out to enjoy the sun: me on a flat-topped rock; Reg on a smooth patch of ground. Who says it’s a dog’s life?
