Our Wednesday June 4 adventure was bittersweet. We had a gorgeous day and plenty of dogs and people for our adventure. Our pack included Bailey the Golden Retriever, Bertie the Gordon Setter, Logan the Goldendoodle, Emma and Stella the Border Collies, Nila the Desi Dog, Maddy the Hound Shepherd Mix and Claire and Laura the humans. As beautiful as the day was, Maddy is moving to Ontario. So this adventure is her last with us.
We started at Millstream Park and made our way up to Lost Lake. I’ll admit we hiked a little longer than our usual 2.5 hours. But everyone was having a great time, and well, it was Maddy’s last walk with us
The dogs played plenty of games of chase. Nila, Bertie, Logan and Maddy had the most games. Stella found some amazing spots to roll in. I’m not sure what she found, but she thought it was fabulous! The dogs had a lot of fun and my friend Laura had a good time encouraging Bertie to swim (though the shake off afterwards was less to be desired).
It was a great walk and a great way to say goodbye to Maddy. I’ll miss that little furball and her incredibly enthusiastic kisses. It’s a great blessing to have these creatures wander into our lives.
The last clip of Maddy wasn’t filmed during our June 4 adventure. It was taken post walk earlier in the year when I was housesitting. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
