Dog walking with Rufus…

Rufus has been with us almost a year. Difficult to imagine the home without him now. He’s been the best in what has been a tough year…


He is either a very intelligent dog, who decides to ignore the pathetic goings-on of the humans around him, or else he is very thick and simply doesn’t understand our commands. Either way, he is clearly very happy.

Early morning walks are good – for me as well as the dog! And we’ve been treated to some superb sunrises over the past few days. Here’s my local Caspar David Friedrich tree, just next to the Lizzie Bennet lane…

Rufus is very bound-y, just like Tigger, and chasing a ball is absolutely what Rufus does best. Or licking the dishes in the dishwasher – perhaps that is what he does best; or maybe the challenge of a big stick on an early morning walk? No…, I have it, best of all is the chance to go for a swim in water, the smellier the better.

(I do like that tree – very CDF for sure.)

So long may our dog-master, master-dog morning walks continue. Great fun for us both, and a chance to go hunting for sticks…

One response to “Dog walking with Rufus…

    To my discredited I know very little about Caspar David Friedrich; but from a quick online search I see he was a 19th-century German Romantic landscape painter (in my fav period of history 1848-1918) so I’ll need to rectify my lack of knowledge.

    I can, however, empathise as a landscape photographer with two of his quotes, by substituting a few words only in each line:

    ‘The painter (photographer) should paint (photograph) not only what he has in front of him, but also what he sees inside himself.’


    ‘If he sees nothing within, then he should stop painting (photographing) what is in front of him.’

    Tom, I love your Caspar David Friedrich tree (Processed with Snapseed)
