Chris and I are excited about having our puppy around and the fact that we’ll more than likely be outside doing more interesting activities this year as a result.
We’ve even gone so far as to brainstorm regarding all the different places we can take our dog and what interesting things we can do with her. I’ve mentioned many times that I’ve enjoyed just getting out each day to take her for a walk, but we can do so much more.
For example we love taking her to the park and watching her run around on her long leash. We aren’t comfortable with her going leashless yet although she’s fairly responsive when we call her to come to us. We’ve also taken her to a few of our Toronto beaches already. I’m sure she’ll really enjoy that in the heat of the summer when she can take a nice dip in the cool waters of Lake Ontario to cool off.
Lately I’ve been considering getting skate shoes. She loves her walks, but if I get skate shoes I could go even farther with her without over tiring myself.
I think she’s still a little too young and not obedient enough to tag along beside our bikes if we went riding … plus they say you really shouldn’t take young dogs running for any major distances until they are about two years old as they can hurt themselves more easily.
Anyone have any great suggestions as to what else we can do with our dog this summer?
BTW we’re enjoying a feast today thanks to our neighbors and the fact that they are celebrating Greek Orthodox Easter. Take a look at the delicacies they gave us! Yummmmm!
