Jack and the Forest

Hiking in the early morning cold of the Smokies yesterday with Jack. This guy loves being outside more than anything else.
 
In their everyday life, of being a domesticated pet, we can’t really appreciate their true nature and arsenal of abilities.
 
He treads lightly through the forest as he sneaks around trees, responds to every sound, and searches out strange new scents to investigate. I can see him taping into his wolf genes. It’s amusing to watch.
