I feel obliged to present a happier Herman compared to the picture I posted earlier. He is out of it most of the time. But he’s always been. Take him for a walk, especially when it’s no warmer than 70 degrees and no cooler than 50, and he’s a happy guy.
I hate that, starting in a couple of days, I won’t be able to walk him for a couple of weeks. These hiatuses get more and more difficult as he ages. Compare him today with a similar pose from six years.
