During the Trek to Sandakphu, we would often pass through small villages. Invariably, one of the dogs from the village would lead the way guiding us as far as they could; often dashing ahead with a mild growl if we ignored them and followed an alternate route. Some of them would quietly slip away; as quietly as they appeared. However, one of them lingered on; while we took a small break and this picture of heart warming goodbye will stay with me for ever !! I am pretty scared of dogs; the mildest ones included but this unknown; unnamed one has impacted me for the better.
