On Tuesday September 22 we had a full pack of dogs. They included Wilbur the Border Collie / Flatcoat, Drift the Border Collie, Taayo the Mexi mutt, Winton the Aussiedoodle, Petey the American Bulldog and Nyssa the Husky / Malamute.
This was Wilbur’s first walk with the tuesday group. He’s been adventuring with us for years on Friday, but thought this group might be a better fit. And it was. Wilbur knew Petey from Fridays and the two of them were quickly off playing. Logan and Drift joined in for a few rounds while Nyssa explored the forest at an easy pace. This was Taayo’s second adventure with us and he did pretty well. I dropped the leash for a portion of the walk as I could see that he really wanted to play with his packmates. But he was a little further ahead and tried to play a game of keep away when we were loading into the truck (not for very long there was another dogwalker loading up and he went to investigate). But it means we’ll keep him on leash a little longer. He clearly loves the group, but needs to learn I’m the boss.
All in all it was a great adventure and I’m looking forward to hiking with this group again.
