Today mommy took me and Hershey on a furry Big Walk! I could tell Hershey knew where we were going, but he doesn't really talk to me. We went out our door like always, but we crossed the street and went up some stairs (I'm getting good at stairs!) and right out of our neighborhood! There's a big, busy street up there, and that's what we headed down. Mommy kept us close.
We walked and walked and walked. We passed a place with lots of people milling around, and lots of dropped food in the nice deep grass by the sidewalk. Mommy wouldn't let us have any, but I think Hershey snagged something. Then we passed a place with lots of cars parked and driving in and out. That went on and on and on. I saw lots of people, but none of them stopped to pet me. We didn't stop much either. Hershey was on a mission.
Finally we went back down some more stairs, and Hershey was getting so excited he wanted us all to run! Mommy doesn't run. We kept walking, and soon I began to sniff all kinds of enticing things! Food, and treats, and other doggies, and toys! We crossed a street and through a door and OMD! We were in doggy heaven! The people inside pet us and gave us treats, and we smelled all kinds of food and treats and saw evfurry kind of toy you can imagine! I thought Hershey might go clean out of his mind! BOL!!
We didn't stay nearly long enough. Mommy got some little tennis balls, the kind that fit in my mouth best, and a stick to throw them with. The people gave us some more treats, and then we started fur home. We got another shot at the dropped-food zone, but to tell you the truth we were both pretty tired. It felt good to get back home to an apple slice and my nice soft bed. I wonder when we'll take the new balls out to play?
Ohhh! It sounds like you got a Chuck-It stick! I LOVE it when someone uses the Chuck-It with those special tennis balls.
It is Fun!
And maybe you will be able to help Hershey *relax* on those walks. He should stop and sniff the sniffs, like you do.
What a great walk! Exciting, too!
I hope you get lots of playtime...and Hershey, too!
One good thought about not getting to snag any food droppings...you left them for more needy pups! BOL!
Wow, Winkie! Yu r seein' da werld, my fwiend an' dat r wunnerful! "Mommy doesn't run" BOLBOLBOL :D
You're right, Freckles! I was one of those pups myself, and I know what it's like. Still, there's something about dropped food that makes it extra tasty, BOL!!!
That's it, Tux, a Chuck-It!! OboyOboyOboy!!!
Hope you has fun with your Chuck-it! Walks is fun, aren't they?
Oh Winkie how fun! You got a Chuck It! We have them too and love them. Momma throughs it the whole length of the baseball field for me and Roscoe has one for in the house..It rolls a fuzzy chuckit wheel! He hasn't ripped it up yet.BOL!
Winkie that above post was from me! Silly Lexi can't play anymore* thump*
BOL, Lexi! You had me going fur a second!
Monnie, we took the new Chuck-It out today! Even Hershey chased my ball! He likes the small ones better, too. The place where I can run is nowhere near as big as a baseball field, but since we don't always bring the ball back anyway, mommy thinks that's okay!
You got Hershey running! WOW! You're good Winkie! Momma you and Hershey will all be thin and healthy like hooman runners! BOL! Momma calls me her lean mean running machine!
BOL, Monnie! See above. Mommy doesn't run. BOL, BOL!!!

Thanks, Watch Dog! I'm trying to train mommy to be more careful!
