Missing My Walking Partner

I'm missing this guy right here. My Dingo was the best walking partner a girl could ever have. He would go with me on a walk, anywhere, anytime, no matter what. 

Now I have this one. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE her. She's my little appendage, my girl, my snuggle bunny, my napping buddy, my heart. But, because she is so skittish and feral, the only walks I truly get to enjoy are the ones where she's left at home. Yes, she cries and cries the whole time I'm gone. It's like she knows I went for a walk without her, but she just can't get herself to go, unless it's her exact route we take every day. 

I live in one of the most beautiful places and I would love to have a dog by my side, as I walk it. Believe me, I've tried to break Sandy of her fears. I've spent the extra time trying to coax her to go on walks in new places, but I finally gave up. It's just too stressful and time consuming and I'd rather just go alone. But, tonight as I did walk alone, I let myself feel the sadness over not having my Dingo by my side, as I did for 11 years. 

I"m hoping he's going on long walks with my mom and dad.
