Wednesday was our first walk of July and it was a hot one! Our pack was a big one that included Beckem and Logan the Goldendoodles, Bailey the Golden Retriever, Nila the Desi Dog, Emma and Stella the Border Collies and Noah the Labradoodle. Whew! There were lots of opportunities for play! Shy Stella is coming out her shell and asking other dogs to go play with her. Of course Emma, Logan and Nila are more than happy to oblige. It’s really cute to see.
Because it was such a hot day, we kept low in the shade of forest. Our doggie friends can’t cool themselves down as well as humans, so it’s important to keep their body temps down as we hike, not just while in the truck! It seemed to work as there were many enthusiastic games of chase and wagging tails.
The birds were singing, the dogs were happy. A great day for a walk.
