The Love Of A Friend

A wise person once said that a dog is man's best friend. Over the years, I've found that saying to be very true. Traveling into the wilds of Southwestern Montana, my canine companions have been with me through hot and cold, windy and calm; harrowing and gratifying. In the photo, Finn, a border collie/healer mix gives a kiss and sniff after a very cold walk to my ice-covered face.
