I woke up this morning to head down to a monthly dog walk, where I try and get Alfie socialized.
Our Pom is almost 4 years old and still as wild as ever with socializing. I’ve brought him to obedience classes for his entire life (not just once a year) and while he knows commands and how to act in certain situations, he’s still skiddish and protective around people. Once we start walking, he calms down and acts like the King of the world. Trotting around and checking in with me.
My coworker has a Chinese Crested Powder Puff and I spotted three of them on the group walk today, so I stuck with them and their owner and had a grand ol’ chat about her pups Joey, Diva (!!!), and Kelso. One mini teacup puppy was there, have no idea what kind of dog but its name was Jeffrey. Love human names for dogs. I think it’s the funniest thing ever. There was even a Vizsla there, which reminded me of Julie’s dog Sadie.
Love these dog walks, and I wish they happened more than once a month.
Do you have any organized dog walks around your area? Do you participate in them? This is the third time I’ve gone to one of these since I only found out about them through my CEO.
What are your plans for the rest of the day? I’m heading out shortly to a goodbye forever party. My pedicure lady is moving back to Cambodia in August, so she’s having a little gathering to say goodbye to everyone. It’s going to be so sad! I know it’ll be a fun party though because they love listening to music and will probably be using their ua apollo at musicians friend thing.
