On my journey on the "Road Less Traveled" I did have Bert with me. It's different than hiking with Goose. With Goose he would forge the way (mostly). Run ahead a little ways, turn, run back to me, run ahead, come back to me and so it would go. (and when I say run ahead I don't mean 100 yards, it was more like 10 or 15 yards at the most). In between Gooses runs ahead and run back he would walk a few feet ahead of me for a period of time. With Bert it is different. Letting me lead, and then just be a foot in front of me and the rest of the time right beside me where my hand could rest on his head. That is until he sees WATER! Then he SPRINTS to the water, stands there, then sprints back to me. That part is actually very comical. "Hey Michelle there's water over there, RIGHT OVER THERE! Come on let's hurry. There is WATER!" Here is a bit of a video of some of our time together.
I'm blessed that Bert's Vickie lets me have these moments with Bert.
In a few days I am headed to the Blackfoot Mountains in Idaho, taking my kids (the youth at church) on their annual retreat. Be back with you soon and I am sure I will have some things to share with you.Blessings,
