My favorite time of day, when the sun is setting and the fog rolls in.
I lived in the San Joaquin Valley for the first 24 years of my life, and I do not miss the heat. Today, the high was 65 and right now it is 55 and cloudy. Whenever someone asks Brian “How’s it going?” or some variation, he never fails to respond with “Just another day here in paradise” and he’s not lying (minus the crackheads lmao). I think the dogs are happier in this weather too, because..
Ranger had minimal reaction to two dogs across the street on our walk tonight. Then, while we were at the school having a good romp a group of people walked onto the field. So I leashed the dogs because I didn’t want to chance anything. I made a lap around the block and when I came back they were gone, so the leashes came off and I started running through obedience with both dogs. The group reappeared and a few of the kids ran up ahead. Ranger was off leash fetching his ball, and he didn’t even bat an eye. A year ago, he would have charged the kid barking his head off (but of course that wouldn’t have happened because he would have been leashed). So.. I’m pretty happy.
