I wanted a dog because I wanted someone to take on adventures with me. Cat are super awesome, don’t get me wrong, but I wanted a camping companion, a beach buddy, a canine co-pilot. Klaus and I have our days where we want nothing to do with each other, where’s being a total jerk of a dog and my patience has worn thin but then we’ll have a massive string of days where we’re a dream team. He’s my best buddy!
The day these photos were taken we made some of our best memories together so far. It was his first time by water that wasn’t the beach. He’s afraid of the water at the beach so I made the assumption he didn’t like water. I was little bummed because I wanted a water dog, a dog who’d be super stoked to head down to the river for a swim with me in the summer. I assumed wrong because as soon as we got down to the water he jumped in. He had no qualms splashing around, chasing rocks as I’d throw them in and just generally making himself a big, stinky, dirty dog. I’ve never seen him act like such a nut. It was so great.
Can’t wait to go on a million more adventures with you, Klaus!
