Rhumb Line is ONE YEAR OLD!

Rhumb Line – An arc crossing all meridians of longitude at the same angle. One of the three lines that can be drawn between any two points on the earths surface. All 32 points on the compass. The quickest way home. My Rhumb Line!!! I know that dogs always grow into their names, but this…

Rhumb Line

In navigation, a rhumb line is an arc crossing all meridians of longitude at the same angle, i.e. a path with constant bearing as measured relative to true or magnetic north.

Rhumbs first hike …

All of my dogs start hiking in the mountains the first week we bring them home. The hikes may not be long, but they are acclimated to trails, trees, streams, and being with me from the get go. But not Rhumb. When we brought her home as a wee new puppy, exited the car, and…

Rhumb & Story – winter time

Our sunrise outings down to Fort Duckworth have allowed me to experience all of our incredible sunrises. We have entered a bit of a ‘barter-trade’ relationship – I feed my…

Accepting your dogs energy

It is one thing to have a dog, it is another thing to understand or gel with your dog. Good work cannot happen if there is a gap in focus, orientation, language, or intention. This is a fact. And what it comes down to is accepting your dogs energy. In other words it is learning…

Happy Christmas Trade Secrets

I want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas this year! Instead of my annual festive card, via post, e-mail, or reindeer and sleigh, I have decided to have some fun, tell a story, vignettes if you will, a tale of sorts. My Muses that I share my life with encourage living between the…
