Climbing Ariano’s Mountain

These photos date from July 11, 2009, so I’m a bit off in my date matching (today being the 18th). Early that morning Eduardo, my cousin Natasha’s husband, led us up their neighborhood “hill.” Tom, Ed, and the dogs made it up easily… I huffed and puffed and really wished I hadn’t been wearing hot and sticky blue jeans. This week in Minneapolis that’s a pretty familiar feeling.

    Very cool, Martha. What kind of dog is that?

    Eduardo is French and all I know of his two dogs (you can barely see Neg in the first photo) is that they hail from France directly and that his term of endearment for the white one is Oveja (sheep). I will have to investigate!

    After some googling I have concluded it must be a Pyrenean Mountain Dog or a Pyrenean Mastiff
