Cutting Corners

Landon’s never been a big believer in following the rules, so he’s not above cutting corners on our daily walks.

Sticking to the trail is so overrated - cutting corners
Sticking to the trail is so overrated

We have a beautiful greenway snaking through our neighborhood, a perfect place for our twice-daily strolls. Landon, though, says he can always find a more direct route than our paved paths, so he’s fine with cutting corners. Sort of his same philosophy when it comes to rules the humans lay down.

    The independent spirit of the husky. Love it.

    There’s always one who wants to change up the routine!!!

    Ruby agrees with Landon that you must always cut corners. Especially in the summer heat.

    Paved trail laid out for you to follow is nice but, sometimes, you just have to feel the green of the earth on your feety feet.
