In the warmer months we hike w/ our American Akita 'Dru' and take Butterfly and Insect photographs.
This usually comes down to her walking/hiking w/ Dru and me stopping to get shots and catching...
They are considered one breed in the US, but pretty much everywhere else they aren't.

Haven't posted any shots of Dru, our American Akita in a few months.
Here he is at 21 months and 100 pounds.
He's 'guarding' the Holiday Ornaments.
We have had some adventures for sure.

His Separation Anxiety is lessening.
