What Sophie sees

Sophie has become my new hiking friend at the Riparian Park
Taking a dog to a riparian area sounds rather odd - but Sophie has the quiet step that interests neither the birds nor other hikers. She doesn't make a sound, stops when I do, and watches everything with a cautious eye.
Here ares a few views she has.
The starting path
Mallards
Goslings.
Not goslings.
Canadian geese
And lots of spring colors hanging down to eye level.

And when we get home, Sophie finds Toby and tells him everything.

Your dogs have wonderful faces! I love the look they're giving you. At first I thought you had discovered a two-headed goose - then realized it was an illusion.

Awwww..... Sophie's great! I love the picture at the top. You can almost see the wheels turning inside her head. :-)

You live in a gorgeous area...!

So she doesn't pester the ducks and geese, or vice versa? I'm impressed.

What a nice place to have so close to your house. Nice companion also.
