Whitney and I love to take Freckles (our adorable Border Collie mutt) for walks. Today we took her out to play a protracted round of fetch. Besides a few distractions she proved again to be intelligent and agile.
In true Dave Black fashion I am showing pictures of taking my dog on a walk. These picture are not merely gratuitous as we made quite an intriguing discovery in the back of our neighborhood.
Tucked away behind the shiny, new houses near the river that runs behind our neighborhood, Freckles found a beautiful, historic family burial spot.
The sign attached to the burial spot indicates that the graves belong to the “Wright Family.” Most of the graves date from the early 19th century. I am aware that the developer of this suburban oasis bought and converted what was originally farmland into its current incarnation as neighborhoods.
My wife and I have no kids. Until we do, we plan on showering an inordinate amount of affection on our puppy (we call her a puppy even though she’s two years old). Here is a nice slideshow of our little girl.
Her name, by the way, is Freckles and she is a Border Collie (i.e., too smart for her own good) mutt. We got her from an animal rescue agency in North Carolina.
