No bones about it - walks in the city are tiring

More: Sylvie is my 80 lbs compass - her internal clock makes sure I get breaks (and her dinners on time), her snuggle quotient makes sure that I supply a sufficient amount of scratches and belly rubs each day, and her insistence to be glued to my feet (or hip) makes sure that someone is always watching out for me. But I always come second to squirrels, frogs, and birds. Her favorite spot by the tree is superseded by a run through the sprinklers.
