On Wednesday August 12, 2015 we had a full pack of dogs and a lovely day. Our pack included Beckem and Logan the Goldendoodles, Stella and Emma the Border Collies, Winston the Aussiedoodle and Lily the Husky / Labrador mix.
We headed to our favourite summer trail, Millstream Park, to enjoy the day. And enjoy we did. The group had a great time wandering through the forest and we made sure to enjoy all the water breaks. Winston spent the first part of his walk on leash, he was just too excited to play with his friends. Once he had burned off some energy he was mellow enough to wander with a dropped leash. He did very well and it’s nice to see him play gently with his buddies. Lily was off exploring, hiding behind the odd tree waiting to see if she would be missed. She would bound into view as soon as her name was called. It was really quite cute.
Logan and Beckem would alternate between meandering through the forest and playing the odd game of chase. Beckem is usually pretty mellow but every once in a while he’ll get a burst of supersonic energy and run wild through the forest. Logan in hot pursuit.
Stella and Emma were our stick loving hounds as usual. The both would eye me and the nearest stick. Waiting for the magic combination of a good toss of the stick. Sadly Emma is ill and she won’t be joining us for walks on a regular basis. We send her lots of well wishes and love. Hopefully she’ll be able to join us for the odd walk, but we’ll miss her stick loving ways in the meantime.
It was a lovely day and a beautiful walk.
