There are many places in each city or town to take your dog. Some require the dog to be on the lead, and some allow off-lead. Either one is a wonderful opportunity for your dog – and for you – to get fresh air, to walk, and to enjoy nature. Your dog will be happy and healthy, and you will too!
It was another one of those surprise days. Jane gets me ready to go outside. I’m excited. It doesn’t matter where we’re going. It matters that we ARE going.
We ride and ride and then get out of the car. I’m on the lead and I seem to know what direction to go in. It’s the direction where I smell dogs. This is a very large place. There are ducks in the water but I don’t care. I care about the smells in ground, and the dogs that pass by me, each one on a lead with his or her mom or dad.
Most parents are really nice and give us a chance to acknowledge each other and decide if we want to be friends or not. This dog wanted to be friends with me.
Sometimes even when we decide we want to be friends, our parents say “okay, that’s enough” and we move on.
Some dogs aren’t feeling very well and my mom doesn’t let me play with them.
We walk for a long long time and we are going around and around this large body of water. I’m getting thirsty but only my mom notices that my tongue is hanging out and that I am hot and thirsty. I don’t notice. I want to keep on going. Mom mom notices, however, and after a long long time she decides it’s time to get back in the car. We go to the car where she has a treat waiting for me. Good boy. Good mom!
This is another wonderful place in the world, another place that I have discovered! That my mom has helped me to discover!
