To say they “walk together” is incorrect. While they technically traverse the block at the same time, they do so with distinctly unsynched personality and energy levels, leaving me in the middle trying to keep their leads untangled.
Shadow’s all about slow and steady and sniffing out all the latest news on the street, marking where appropriate and finding the perfect place to poop.
Ranger’s still too young to have anything to do with patience. Instead she’s all about soaking everything in simultaneously and forgetting it just as quickly â€” all the while ripping up and down front and back and sideways along the length of her 15 foot radius of freedom.
Shadow’s seen it all. Ranger ain’t seen nothing yet.
