This could be a great project for Kootenay farmers as well :).

Using something they call Sheep View 360, the islands’ official tourist board is campaigning to get their roads included on Google Street View. A Faroese woman named Durita Dahl Andreassen, part of the tourist board called Visit Faroe Islands, has rigged harnesses onto sheep and attached 360-degree cameras, filming while the sheep roam the island.

A wonderful image that we have to share to remind ourselves of the important things in life for us and our dogs.

Walk Your Dog

Even if you have a back yard,
Let them see the rest of the world.
Even if they are 10 pounds and pad trained,
let them sniff the grass.
Even if they are older,
let them walk a little slower.
Whether you live in the country,
suburbs, or city, walk your dog.
If your dog pulls on the leash, or
is reactive, get help from a trainer.
Then walk your dog
better, longer, happier.
