Vermont, Day 1

Yesterday we went out to Franklin, NH again. We've been out there 3 or 4 times together now. It's one of the towns David is doing his dissertation on, so we keep going back. This time he wanted to walk along the opposite side of the river from where the path is and try to get some shots of the (paper) mill foundations over there. That meant there was a lot of tromping through underbrush and trees, and climbing over things, including the old foundations. It was tough going, but we had a lot of fun. Well, at least until the end. David went on ahead and I stayed with Dahlia (you didn't think we left her behind did you?) because the area was too precarious for her and he came back a muddy mess. One shoe got totally sucks into mud and he ended up losing his balance and falling. His pants from the knee to the bottom were all covered in mud, as was his butt, the lower part of his shirt, and his hands. LOL Luckily I had the blanket I use for dogs in my car, so we were able to cover up the seat and head to Walmart where he found a cheap pair of gym shorts and a t-shirt to change into.

Gratuitous tail shot!

Where's Dahlia? I don't know! I can't see her through the giant tail!

David went up this wall and Dahlia SO wanted to follow him. She even leapt up, got her feet onto the top, and tried to scrabble over it. It didn't work. I called her off because I didn't want her to keep trying. She could hurt herself and it was just going to frustrate her.

I think the face she's making here is silly.

This is where David went on and we stopped. She's watching him go.

Silly face!

David and Dahlia went into the woods here and I decided to stay on the grass. When she came out and spotted me, Dahlia came running.

I think this is Dahlia's tired face. She was ready to go home and rest!

Wow, the water looks so gorgeous and blue. Unusual for around here. :P

And I love all the photos of Dahlia! I think the third to last is my favorite, where you can really see her eyes.
