The first thing I wanna do every time I come back from a trip is to spend time with my 2 fur babies and give them some exercise. They get super clingy to me when they haven’t seen me for awhile and keeps vying for my attention. Letting them run around and explore helps ease their tensions.
Spending time with Louis and Emmie also helps slow my world down. I don’t have to think about work or schedules and just focus on them so they don’t get into any trouble. It also gives me time to stop and admire the nature around… to take a break… breathe in and realize that time is constant so I need to learn not to chase it so much.
By the way… all the photos here are taken with my little canon compact camera. Didn’t take my DSLR out with me.
And for those of you that miss Louis and Emmie… here they are… being really tired from all the running and exploring.
Emmie has really small lungs so she pants a lot very easily and with her thick fur, it’s not hard for her to get heat stroke so she needs to be monitored closely and I only take her out on days where the sun isn’t too hot or in the evenings when the sun is about to set.
Louis on the other hand was meant for running. He’s a gun dog and needs the exercise as much as he can get. He can go on for miles!
I don’t really run much. I know running is really “in” these days with a lot of my friends taking part in marathons and all but it’s just not my thing. Luckily for me… my dogs are happy to run without me… they’ll run far away and then run back to check that I’m still tagging behind before running off again. And they’ll come back to me when I call… I do have to call a few times though.
On one side we can see the moon rising…
And on the other side, the setting sun.
A clear indication it was time to go home before this secret abandon state land gets too scary.
Hydration for my babies while we watch a hawk circling in the sky.
And what did my little Louis boy find?
A hawk feather! I’m not too sure about Singapore laws. But I do know that in the USA, hawk feathers are a part of the religious rituals of the native Americans and registered tribes get to wear the hawk feathers in their costumes. But for anyone else, it’s illegal. It’s illegal to wear a hawk feather even if you found the feather on the ground or even if you own a hawk. Well, I guess it’s good luck to find one! =)
