Reflections: PT. 1

Now that I have been home for a couple of days, I have been thinking about the trip and how it was traveling with 4 greyhounds. What I come away with is the incredible bond that developed between all of us, and I include myself in the equation. I remember thinking, before I left, will I want to give my dogs away by the end of this? am I crazy? will I hate my dogs? But no, instead I have an even deeper feeling towards them. By the end of the trip, they really understood the routine, we were bonded together as a traveling unit, and stopping for photo ops or just breaks and water, they understood what was expected.

Now that we are home, it is back to that routine, for dogs are all about the moment.

I am planning on continuing to post some thoughts and reflections of my 6000 mile plus journey. Stay tuned.

Cool. Reading the blog was almost as good as being there. Glad you made it home safely. Take care of the hounds!
