I call this a family portrait, because Maria and I have no family close by, and in one sense, the dogs are our family. I went for two walks today, one on my hill in the morning, one out in the deep woods in the afternoon.
Maria and I walked alone in the morning, the dogs came in the afternoon. I am really overjoyed to be able to walk in these beautiful woods again without feeling pain or gasping for breath.
I am a very lucky man. The dogs have learned to love posing for photographs, I just yell “photoshoot” and they both do their calendar poses. How lucky I am to have a family like this around me.
