Wooo Hooo! Made it to NZ
Sheep sheep sheep! Hardly surprising, since there are something like 70 million of them in New Zealand, but still fun to see them, even in a city park, like this one in the middle of the city of Auckland, Cornwall Park. Auckland, by the way, is a gorgeous city, surrounded by water with lots of dormant volcanoes creating hills and valleys everywhere.
Karen, my host at Learning About Dogs, took Jim and I on a perfect 3 hour walk this morning with two of her good friends (the human kind) and 6 happy dogs. We walked in a beautiful forest and along a black sand beach (the sand is “recycled” lava).
Here’s Rupert, Karen’s English Pointer, that she rescued a few years ago. All six dogs, a pointer, 2 English Setters, 1 Gordon and 2 Giant Schnauzers, ran themselves silly, and loved every minute of it. And because of the dogs, 5 people who had never met were instantly in great conversations — so lovely how dogs bring people together all around the world, isn’t it?
