Lachlan Explores the World

Last spring I ended up with a MTBI (mild traumatic brain injury) that I got from fainting and hitting my head while I was in the hospital with appendicitis ( was not a good day for me).  I've had to put my career on hold and have moved to live with my mum for the remainder of my recovery.

The silver lining in all of this is that I've moved back to a beautiful area on Vancouver Island and get to spend time with my wonderful family dog, Lachlan.  Lachlan acts like my therapy dog – he sleeps next to me and pretty much goes wherever I go.  Together we explore the great outdoors, whether its going for a walk, or a swim in the ocean or river (him not me. It's too cold for me).  I just spent three years in snowy Edmonton while I went to law school so I really appreciate the tranquil forests of Vancouver Island.

I thought I'd share some photos that I took of Lachlan while we were exploring.  Getting outside is some of the best therapy there is and having a dog that is eager to go wherever I go makes it all the better. I spent months trapped inside and am now at the point where getting outside is important for my recovery. It feels pretty great to finally be able to do something that is worth taking photos of.
