“Happiness is only real when shared.”
Meet Max, my new travel companion. He has been following me for the last week, and I have enjoyed his company immensely. Though he may not sit or lie down on command (though he does come to my whistle), he knows how to find his own food, he runs beside me through the mountains as I cycle, and he can herd sheep and goats better than any of your pet dogs. He apparently use to be a shepherd’s dog, though, he doesn’t know the commands other shepherd’s dogs I have met do, so I am not too sure how accurate this is. He is friendly and strong, and follows me around wherever I go. He even comes and sleep in my tent vestibule when it gets cold.
