Golden Hour

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags!  There are all kinds of good reasons we leave for our walks just before dawn:  less people to deal with, getting a jump on the day, beating the heat in Summer/enjoying the bitter cold in Winter*, and, in addition to lovely sunrises, it's what photographers call the Golden Hour!  Check it out!
"I feel like I'm in my element, Ragnar!"
"It's all color-coded to you, Mags!  ... except for your pink leash and harness."

See what I mean?  Golden!

"Yeah ... I'm not so sure about the whole 'neon pink' thing."
"Yeah. I'm not swapping, though."

I don't know how he knew I was going to try - except that we can pretty much read each others' thoughts!

Oh, and some people wonder if Ragnar and I walk shoulder-to-shoulder the whole walk. No, not really. Actually, a lot of the time, it's like this:
"Oh, wait!  I missed something!"
"Hey!  Someone's in the woods!"

Usually I'm the one sniffing everything, though, and Raggi is the scout.  We do like to mix it up to keep Mom and Dad guessing!

Do you get up and out to enjoy the Golden Hour, too?  What a glorious time of day!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  1. We rarely ever see the golden hour in the morning as our mom is more of a night owl. If it were up to Walter and our dad we too would be up before the sun.

  2. We catch the other golden hour, the one just before sunset. No "morning people" here! --Kelly and Boo
