On Friday July 31, 3015 we had an energetic pack to enjoy the day. Our adventurers included Beckem and Logan the Goldendoodles, Kili the German Shepherd, Tobey the Labradoodle and Wilbur the Border Collie / Flatcoat. This pack was excited to get out on the trails. We headed to Millstream Park to hike and enjoy a couple of watering holes along the way.
Kili has been walking with this group for a little while now. He’s definitely getting more comfortable and eager to play with his packmates. A little too eager at times We kept him on leash for the first little bit to remind him we like our hike energy to be nice and mellow. Once he got a few km’s under his feet he was able to chill and enjoy the hike. It’s pretty normal and we’re happy to see him so happy to play with his friends.
Wilbur got the dogs to play a few rounds of chase. We’ve been working on giving Wilbur a break during these games as he doesn’t like to self regulate. He’s been picking up that if he runs to me, I’m the chill zone. He’ll take a moment to rest then he’s off again.
Logan enjoys a good round of chase, though he’s been content to explore the forest more and more. He’s just thrilled to be out with his buddies. Beckem and Logan had a few romps in the forest. They’re good friends and it’s always fun to watch their golden fur bouncing through the sunlight.
Tobey is enjoying this pack. He can sometimes keep his distance from the pack, but he’s been up front exploring with the rest of them these last few weeks. He makes sure to check in on me and I do my best to reward him with a few extra pats.
All in all we had a great hike.
