Algae and Celeste, the hikers


I’ve always had dogs.

I’m married to a man who loves dogs.

We are together for 48 years.

I love my dogs. My husband is more tolerant of other dogs but I just love my own. When one dies, we get another.

They figure in with our exercise plan. We get out everyday to walk them.

We went to Lake Minnewaska to go hiking. The dogs hike too.  They got some good exercise this weekend.

We walked 12 miles so Celeste could get her exercise.  No off leash for her.  She just takes off and disappears. Algae gets more exercise because he’s allowed off leash. He comes back when we call his name.

We bring them to this dog run every day, because this is the best dog run for them. We used to live in a different part of the city where they only had concrete dog runs, so this is an improvement.

Algae likes the male dogs, he’s a chip off the old block, or leash so-to-speak. He is our 4th Briard. He’s not aggressive. He’s a nuisance in the car. He barks, whines and squeals in the car. In that way, he’s the worst dog we’ve had.

He’s very attuned to us. When we get up, he gets up.

He’s a shepherd and we are his flock.

Celeste has 1 blue eye. She is more independent. You can’t teach her to come. You can’t teach her anything.

They are important to our relationship. They are our children, our responsibility.
