What I enjoy the most these days are these long walks that I take daily with my dog Ulysse. He's an English setter, and like other dogs of his breed, he loves running among the trees, sniffing the trail of some mysterious animal and rummaging in the dead leaves and small bushes. Sometimes, he even chases a little rodent around, before coming back to me, proud as a peacock. As for me, I just enjoy the soothing quiet of the undergrowth, where the shade of the tall broad-leaf trees creates a cosy shelter from the outside. There, I can recharge my batteries before venturing once more into the world.

Clever stuff happening!
