No walk for us today, but I did get to go with Mom to someone's house. It's a family we know from our pack walks. They have two dogs, Spencer - an American Spitz and Ruby - a long haired Chihuahua. Well I was the only one that Mom trusted to go and not pee in the floor. Hehe. I wasn't too sure when we got there. I tend to be a little shy, but I recognized Ruby and Spencer. I still hid behind Mom a little though. And when Mom sat down I sat in her lap part of the time. But it wasn't all bad because I got this Greenie treat that was pretty good. And I didn't have to fuss at anyone to stay away from it. And I got to go outside off leash at their house. Mom knows she can trust me. But the best part was one of the other pets they have at their house. Well, besides cats. They have cats, and I saw one of them, but he was afraid of me. Can you imagine? HE was afraid of ME. And he was bigger than me, too. Anyway, back to this other pet. They called it a ferret. I was very curious and went up to smell it. Pretty interesting. And then it decided to smell me. I was a little unsure about that. So I went back to Mom's lap. I did go smell it again. I think I kind of liked it.
When I got back home Pippi, Pixie and Dutchess were all smelling me a lot. Wonder if they could smell the ferret or if it was just Ruby and Spencer they could smell. I had fun, but I'm kind of glad to be back home where I can really get a good nap.
I am so excited. I just found out I am THE Daily Diary pick for today. Me! I'm doing a happy dance. MOM!! This calls for a celebration. Treats all around, and pull out the good ones.
This helps make up for the fact that Pixie got to go on a walk with Mom all by herself, and I didn't get to go. It seems like I almost always have to share Mom with someone when I go. Now forget the fact that I feel braver when one of the others comes with us. I don't want to be confused with the facts right now. It just wasn't fair I tell you, and I was mad. I got right up in Pixie's face when they got back home. She hates that. I don't touch her, I just stand really close. Mom did point out to me that this was the first walk Pixie has made it on so far this year since she got sick right at the start of the year. And she pointed out that I have been on three walks already this year. Then I think she said something about me being a diva. I corrected her. I am a princess!
Fourth pack walk of the year and I got to go again. Pippi did, too, but Mom did tell Pippi if she doesn't learn to be quiet in the car she will only get to go on walks close to the house! Hehe. This time we went to Nicholas Ball Park, which isn't a very big park. So we loop multiple times. I did my barking at the park ... every person we passed. I do that every now and then, but am quiet most of the time.
We saw a big hawk sitting in a tree while there. Mom made sure to stay close to me every time we passed the hawk. Didn't want it getting any ideas you know.
No one carried a pedometer this time, so we're just guessing at how far we walked. We think maybe around four miles. No one with string cheese this time. Someone did have some freeze dried cheese, but I was a little shy and the other dogs kept eating it before I would get close enough for a bite. I'm a little less shy with string cheese.
