Weekly Feature: Love Letters From A Dogwalker
As a special surprise, we got Havi a birthday walk!
Is it her birthday?!?! I wish I had known! I gave
her some extra bday lovin though.
What a great day! It was one of those walks where I
wish I could videotape the whole thing and send it to you guys...she had SO
It started out with a little cute roly poly action
while trying to harness her up. Then we were off! We were about five minutes
behind Jax and Sophie so they still had plenty of energy when we arrived. We
were the only ones there and they went NUTS! She is so gentle with Jax
considering her size and he proved his toughness with her. It was so fun to
watch the three of them.
After they left we still had a few minutes so we
just hung out- she was pretty pooped. The walk home was a bit difficult. I
ended up using treats but then she had to stop to eat them! I noticed though
that she responds better to sporadic tugs than to constant leash tension so I
was letting her fall behind a tiny bit and then bringing her forward
She pooped at the park and it was large and more
solid than usual-yay!
Back inside I gave her a new bowl of spring water
and a milkbone. Then she settled in on the floor for her afternoon nap.
