|You can tell by Maya's tail, and their pace, that she's caught|
the scent of something here.
Max was happy to be out again and he moved along quickly and that encouraged Maya to move faster too, at least when he wasn't stopping to pee, poop, or sniff. Maya typically stops to pee and poop soon after we get on the trail. Max poops three times in the first half mile, and this time he made a fourth stop towards the end. I'm never sure if he has trouble eliminating fully or if he's marking territory. You can't assume that normal dog behavior will apply to Max.
|We didn't actually spot any deer today, but they|
got a scent a couple times and we heard some.
I need to get back to walking regularly and I'll probably start walking the boys in rotation, one at a time, with Maya, until I get strong enough to try walking three together again.

|These two do walk really well together.|
|I still believe that fall is the prettiest time of|
year in Virginia.
