I started to write a post about a magical hike we made on Memorial day (I’ll share it with you later on, no need to worry,) when new entries to the Weekly Photo Challenge started to fill up my inbox. This week’s theme Friend, is just to good to pass up on.


I grew up with German Shepherds, and I just love the breed. I’m not sure if there is any living soul more loyal than one of a German Shepherd. My two year old girl Gretchen, a rescue that I’ve only had a couple months have quickly become my shadow. If I’m there, she is there.

Gretchen loves to keep me company when I work in my garden. This week we’ve been (re)planting peach trees (into bigger containers. All my trees grows in containers.)


With a German Shepherd you’re just never lonely. As a woman I feel much better hiking on secluded trails, or spending time in rural areas (something I enjoy tremendously) with a German Shepherd by my side.


I love how intelligent, and attentive they are. How they love to learn new things, and always says yes to adventure! Tell me about your friend! If you participate in the photo challenge, feel free to leave a link to your post in a comment, I’d love to see it!

    • Thank you Sheryl! She is very intelligent.

      The reason why I grow my trees in containers has to do with limited space, and the fact that I don’t own the land that I live on. I am working towards my dream of a homestead, and I look forward to bringing my then hopefully producing fruit trees (they are still young) to my own place.

      Looking forward to see more posts from you!


  2. I had a German Shepherd named Sam in my life for almost 11 years. He was the most loyal, intelligent and loving friend I could have had. Precious creature.
