On Thursday April 30 we had a full pack of dogs as we headed to Ballentree Park to enjoy the day. Our pack included Bogie the Golden Retriever, Brando the German Shepherd, Winston the Aussiedoodle, Petey the American Bulldog, Drift the Border Collie and Nyssa the Husky / Malamute.
We were able to drop the leash for Winston for a bit. It’s great to let him run around, though he requires close attention as he is still working on containing his excitement. He’s slowly learning that if he mellows out a little, he gets to explore more freely. Petey has also been adjusting to his muzzle. He doesn’t love it, but it allows him to run around and doesn’t seem to chew up his nose too much.
Brando still loves Winston, he’ll take any opportunity he can to play chase. Drift joined in a few games while Bogie and Nyssa explored the forest. It was a great hike, though I seemed to mostly catch our water breaks on video. Will make sure to catch more of the walk in the future!
