Another Jimmy-ism

A while back, I reported on a little quirk of Jimmy's. He really is a character and a smart one at that! On many of our morning walks, we take to the W and OD trail behind my house. It runs east/west and usually we head east in order to complete a nice 2 mile loop back to the house. Of course, this time of year, the sun is still low in the sky, even at 7:30 or 8 in the morning. So that means the sun is in our eyes, often quite brightly. I wear a winter hat that has a small brim to block most of the rays. Jimmy has developed his own method....

What a smart boy!
He walks behind me and stays in my shadow. No sun is his eyes, thank you very much!

As we head into the home stretch of Christmas, I have a feeling my posts may become infrequent. I haven't had much camera time lately so the blog fodder is running low. Have no fear though, I do have a couple of Wilson's Wednesdays stacked up :-)


  1. Clever lad. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. HI Jimmy
    What a clever way to keep the sun out of your eyes on your daily morning walk

  3. Clever boy! Pumpkin (with her glossy black back) would be right back there with Jimmy! She doesn't like being in the sun very much. (It's awful when one runs out of blog fodder, isn't it! I'm glad Erika and her new camera are helping me out!,

  4. Good thinking, Jimmy! Humans are handy to have around. :-)

  5. That Jimmy is one smart dude! It does get tougher to find time on the blog during the holidays. Busy, busy times! :)

  6. Jimmy is super smart!!!! It sounds like you have very fun morning hikes.

  7. So smart! I try to get Rita to walk in my shadow when we are on hot summer walks, but she's clearly not as smart as Jimmy!

  8. A very smart fellow. So funny we got a laugh out of it.

  9. I love the shadow shot
