In the Woods Again

I went on a hike in the woods again with Thane today.  I grew up walking in those woods frequently, but haven't made the time for hiking much in recent years.  It's refreshing to get out there...and nice to have a hiking buddy.  

I was thinking today that I hope I have some forest on the property when I'm finally able to buy my own place...and then it occurred to me that this is NH - it'll be challenging to find a property that isn't ALL forest!

Ideally, I'd like to have a nice mix of fields and forest.  Hey, I can dream, right?

Worst case scenario if I don't have a decent chunk of forest on my property, though, there are plenty of trails in the'd be just a short drive to find somewhere to hike.  :)  

Thane and I met a small pack of dogs today (accompanied by their people), and I was pleased to see that while he immediately leapt in to play with the biggest of the three dogs, he was gentle/ignored the two small dogs.  He ran up to them a couple times, but didn't bowl them over or try to engage them in play.  That was encouraging.

I was also glad that they were understanding that he's still a puppy as he roughhoused with their biggest dog!
