Sepia Saturday - Walking Zaphod

I have never walked Zaphod alone. Hailey I had (and she is more or less the same alone, maybe a little less sniffing when alone), but not my boy. I have been enjoying the time we have been spending together. I think he as too. He always has a big smile when we head out. He is actually sniffer than Hailey. He also often checks in with me or nudges me for pets on the walk (something Hailey never does, I think she forgets she has a human with her half the time). 

Smiling and walking
He is happy until I ask him to stop to take his picture, then I get these cute faces:)

"I thought you said it was walk time."

This time alone is helping keep me motivated to keep up the two walks most mornings. (We do occasionally do a very early morning walk together, when I know it will be safe).

    I am sure that each dog appreciates single time too, for different reasons. Glad you are finding some benefit for yourself in it; every 'parent' finds that dynamics differ according to whether they are alone with each of their children or if all the kids are together! YAM xx

  2. oh a just mom&me time is very important... and as much as we love our fursiblings such solo-walks are good too for both ends of the leash.... wish we would live closer, so I could send Easy to entertain Lee while you walk with Phod ... oh wait... better not,they would make a great duo infernal :o)

  3. What precious time with Phod and we love his handsome face and how he keeps check on you.

  5. One on one time can be very special! Sheba gets annoyed with me when I stop to take photos too! But usually I just get the back of the head....LOL.

  6. We know you love walking with your mom, Phod. What a sweet face!

  7. One-on-one time with Mom is always the best. I love your photo-face, Z. It speaks volumes!

    Love and licks,

  8. Sounds like a win-win situation to us! Phoddy is a bit of a ham for the camera!

    Your Pals,

  14. Mazie loves her one-on-one time too :)

  15. It can be hard sometimes to make sure our babies get one-on-one time. It's good that you make a point to do that. I should start doing that too.
