People have occasionally asked about our German Shepherd who appears in a number of our photographs. Sadly we report he left this earthly existence at the end of 2005. He now rests comfortably about 25 feet from our deck - his favorite command perch to watch over house and family (and spot a rabbit or a deer who might invade his territory).
In 2006 it was difficult to return to some of the trails where he was our constant companion. Some walks Jo just couldn't take because her "buddy" was missing. Our bond with this special animal was beyond description. A giver of unconditional love, an always ready companion, a psychic who knew when Jo would be arriving home from work, a dog who learned to understand human talk just from being around us, a protector who could scare the pants off a delivery man while being exceptionally gentle with a toddler. We sure miss him.
Below are a few of my favorite shots of Hans - many taken while on SuperiorTrails expeditions.

With the Family he Loved
Rest in Peace Good Buddy. Someday your spirit will rise and teach a new puppy the "ropes" of taking care of this family.
