I've been looking up public access spaces/places on Google Maps, rather than going for trailheads, to find some nice "hikes" closer to home. I found an old logging road near the Sandy River that is a decent walk, but wasn't exactly what I was looking for. Took Cuchulainn with me, solo, to burn some energy.
He's a great little dog - he feels very intensely and loudly, and certainly doesn't shirk away from expressing himself, which has become a bit of a double-edged sword. I do like how expressive he is (it reminds me a bit of my late Malamute), but he's sometimes inappropriate.
He's been getting better these last months, and always behaves himself when we're out together in the woods. I think it's where we're all the happiest and most relaxed.
