Thanks for stopping by for my July update.
We started the month with a parade. There were sooooo many people, and loud fire trucks, but I didn’t mind at all.
And I FINALLY got to go in the lake! I wasn’t too sure about it at first because I went past Dad and my feet didn’t touch anymore. I swam like a pro, but it shook me up a little. The next time though, Dad brought a retrieving dummy and I had a blast swimming out to get it. I hope we get to do more of that!
I have been meeting new friends at the dog park. So far, I have liked every dog I meet and we run and play together. I also met the other dog that lives in our circle. He wasn’t interested in running around with me, but we got along just fine.
I have also been spending more time visiting restaurant patios. I get a little impatient waiting for Dad and Mom to eat, but I behave myself and get treats.
We are spending most days at LEPR or walking in our circle. I find so many smells in the morning when it is cooler and damp. I am starting to point things out on our walks too. I strike my pose and then wait, and wait, and wait, and wait until I’m told to “go get it!!”. I mostly find turkeys and bunnies, but I scare up a deer every once in awhile too.
Dad and I also joined a hunt club. We just walked around the clay sporting course and one of the hunting fields so far, but I overheard talk that next month I get to try to find actual birds.
I have been doing really well with “sit” and “stay”, but I really don’t like to be told to lay “down”. I fight that one every single time. Unless Mom has liver sausage. Then I drop like a boss.
Other than that, we are just hanging out together, going for car rides, and enjoying as much time outside as possible.
See ya next month!
