Luke is back and it was time to go on a hack today. We marched out the driveway, and down to the gravel road. Even without shoes, he was pretty much impervious to the gravel. He was very tight in his neck and looking at every little thing for the first quarter mile, but he allowed me to convince him that nothing was out to get him. We hacked about 3 miles and he came home in a happy, swinging walk.
