Of the same mind.
I got up a little earlier than usual and took Anu for a walk. It's cloudy and, although muggy, it's still cool--cool and cloudy is our kind of weather. Anu trotted along on her 26 foot pull-out leash in wide circles and when she'd get to the furthest point in front of me would run back with a huge grin on her face and smash lovingly into my legs--then do it all over again. We walked to campus and headed for, what I call, the "observation deck," which is really the cobble-stoned roof of the aquatics lab. When we got there Anu and I stood at the railing and looked out at the lake and the woods for a good long time before exchanging looks and deciding to move on. Have I mentioned that we sometimes share a brain? Yes, we do...and I love my wolfie. Funny how, out of all the people in the world, I get along with my dog best. We understand each other better than anyone. Days like today (or any other day) I can't even imagine how boring life would be without her.
