By the time you read this I will have revisited the places in these pictures, unfortunately there was no one to lay out my waterproof trousers on the bench for this time.
After seeing the first picture I am now trying to figure my mind set. I remember it as a very horrible day of constant rain which stopped as we approached the bench so Tippy was already very wet just as I was so there was hardly any point to getting her to lay on the bench instead of the wet ground but not only did I put her on the bench I also lay out my trousers for her to lay on. I know I do tend to share with my dogs when out walking so I guess I was just treating her as an equal. She sure does look like she was ready for a rest though!
The second picture was taken just a bit further long the trail and she was back in to her stride and wondering why I was so slow.
