Calgary, Alberta September 5, 2014. My friend Gwen drives here almost every day to take her dogs for a walk. The park is within Calgary, over four square miles in area, and open year round. I have known Gwen for over twenty years and got invited to tag along on one of her trips with her two dogs. Gwen is one of those friends that you like to hang out with if you can ever get in touch with them. This was one of those rare occasions where I was able to get her on the phone and meet to catch up on events.
