Hiking Partners


It’s hard to believe we’ve had Truman, our 7 month old Standard Poodle rescue puppy, for only 6 weeks.  He has fit in so nicely with our family and learns things very quickly.  One thing I was looking for was a hiking partner.  He has filled this role nicely – – he loves walking with me in the woods.

One advantage of where we live is that there are many hiking and kayaking opportunities nearby.  My husband had to work until 6 tonight, but that was still ample time for a quick hike to Emerald Pool in Evans Notch, on the NH/ME border before darkness set in.
