Daddy gave me a test today. He thought I would be able to go to the big dog park without my leash. I thought he meant Fort Fun, but this was a different one, not by the water but sort of in a forest. It isn't far from our house. Hershey said I've been there befure, but I don't remember. He says it was right after I moved in. We all went to the park and daddy took our leashes off and I took off running to say Woof to all the other doggies. Daddy had to take off running too, because I can't hear if he calls me back. So that time, I got my leash on again pretty quick. And that's been the story of my life since then. The only place I could evfur go off-leash after that was inside of a fence.
But I was new to my fambly back then. In fact, I may not have known they were my fambly. I was probably running around looking fur the fambly I had just come from. But I don't remember.
Anywag, where we usually go is Fort Fun, and I always have to be on my leash. Hershey doesn't, because he doesn't wander off and if he does, he comes right back when daddy calls him. But daddy thought after all this time, I could be good like Hershey. So today was my test. The park we went to doesn't have trails like Fort Fun where I could run off and get lost, just lots and lots of grass to run around on. When we got there daddy took off my leash and we started walking. We walked and walked, all around the park and in and out of the trees. There were lots of other doggies there and I sniffed them and their pawrents petted me, but I kept my eyes on mommy and daddy and Hershey and nevfur got furry far away from them. If I ran ahead a little, I stopped and looked back to make sure they were following. If they got ahead of me I caught right back up. Most of the time I stuck right by Hershey. Mommy said it was like we were tethered togefur, BOL!
When we were all tired and ready to go home we headed back to the car and daddy said I get an A+!!!! I'm not sure what he meant, but he and mommy were furry happy and proud of me! When I got home I got extra apple slices. Well, Hershey did, too, but that's only because he tries to steal mine. Now daddy says I have to pass the test again, next time at Fort Fun. I know I can do it!

GMA'S COCKER SPANIEL HAD CATARACTS AND LOST ALL HER HEARING IN THE LAST YEARS OF HER LIFE. SHE WAS OVER 15 WHEN SHE WENT TO THE BRIDGE FROM CANCER. SHE WAS NEVER OFF THE PONDEROSA EXCEPT FOR GROOMIN' APPTS. SHE KNEW WHERE EVERYTHING WAS...AND SHE OPERATED BY GMA'S PAW SIGNALS. SHE COULD FEEL VIBRATIONS OF THINGS MOVIN' BUT COULD HEAR THEM.. HER EYE SIGHT WAS VERY LIMITED. SHE DID FINE FOR OVER 5 YRS.
TELL THEM TO KEEP THOSE APPLE SLICES HANDY!!! HAPPY EASTER,HUGS AND KISSES,MAZY AND GMA K.
I know I would never do this well in a park, Winkie. Mama and Papa say that I get distracted very easily and don't always pay attention. And I have taken off on Papa a few times.

Mazy, you can't keep a good cocker down! I have one good eye and a phenomenal nose! What else do I need? BOL!!
