en route to Chippewa
We have the rest of the day to get back east across the UP. Along the way we head straight onto E. Munising Ave in the town of Munising, instead of taking the sharp right turn that is a continuation of M-28. It is less than two miles to Munising Falls. Tammy thinks it is a good idea to take the golden boys, FLDs Drummond and Bravo, for a short hike. We are eager to stretch our legs, too.
|No, Tammy is NOT kneeling next to FLD Drummond. Her right leg sunk into the snow up to her knee!|
|FLD Drummond holds still as Tammy extracts her leg.|
|FLD Bravo takes a snow bath.|
|FLDs Bravo and Drummond strike a post at Munising Falls.|
|Silly Bravo can't get close enough to his buddy Drummond.|
Tammy asks me to videotape FLD Drummond walking because she said the guys had some concerns about his gait. (We don't notice anything unusual.) The beauty-boy does a nice job of what we call "connected walking." He keeps a loose leash, yielding to gentle pressure, but is not expected to maintain a tight heel position at Tammy's left side. At one point a family carrying a small, yippy dog exits the trail onto the parking lot where we are shooting; Drummond is interested, but quickly refocuses. Good boy!
