As a teenager, I had a pet dog, Caesar – a benevolent German Shepherd. He passed away in 1997. Since then I have been wary of being attached to another pet. I am happy to have them around, but I try really hard not to get attached. Till I met Dobby – this bundle of energy and love in form of a golden retriever. He is a friend’s pet – not ours and yet it is difficult not to get attached to him. Try as hard as I can not to, but he still reminds me of Caesar. Animals too have a personality and Dobby brings back fond memories of the times with Caesar.
Last weekend, we accompanied our friends on a short hike to Staufen in the Taunus along with Dobby and I took my camera with me (I have only a couple of photos with Caesar – I wish I had more)… here some Dobby memories from that quest.
