Slice of Life 22

Happy spring! Today it was 60° and sunny. The sky was blue and the breeze was cool. After work I took the dogs for a meandering walk at a local park and allowed them to just sniff and watch things. Did you know sniffing is often more exhausting for dogs than physical exercise? Dogs have more smell receptors than humans and spending time sniffing the world around them decreases their heart rate and relaxes them. We often rush dogs through walks, but slowing down is so good for us and them.

On our walk I saw blue birds and sparrows hopping from branch to branch. There were spring peepers singing in the vernal ponds. The daffodils were in bloom buds are popping! Happy spring!
