Today Mom and I took Wish out for a walk - "a little loop," I think was how she pitched it. Two or three inches of snow had fallen overnight, so the first couple of miles on one of our favorite trails involved breaking trail. (Read: Wish was having the time of his life while our leg muscles were burning.) "Are you guys good to go a little farther?" she asked, and Wish and I agreed. Once we finished the trail segment, we finished the loop by trekking along a quiet dirt road lined by trees dusted with a fresh coat of snow.
An hour and a half later, we were back home, totally tuckered out, and we figured out we'd traveled five miles on our "little loop." "Oops!" Mom chirped.
No wonder there were some extra-leisurely naps this afternoon!
