The sun came out this afternoon so I thought that was the perfect time to take the dogs for a walk.
So I dug out the collars and retractable leashes and put them on the dogs and headed down the street.
Come on now girls, let's get our acts together!!!
In all fairness, this was just the second time Maggie has walked on a retractable leash so she really was doing rather well.
Oh now, that is more like it ladies!
We managed to walk all the way down to the end of our street (just one block) and walked a distance on the Harbor Dike Trail.
I got brave and took them off leash...
And they had the time of their lives!
Maggie worked so hard to try to keep up with Mistaya
and Mistaya did stop and return to Maggie so they could run together once in awhile.
Maggie may be small but she has the heart of a greyhound! She tries to run so fast that her little legs were working like pistons. And once in awhile I saw her hind legs actually try to get ahead of her front legs. A very funny sight!
After we returned home it did not take Maggie long to find a comfy spot on the couch to get in a well deserved nap after her big excursion.....
I clicked this picture, turned away for just a moment...and then...
This is what I saw....
Sweet dreams little princess.
I am very thankful for having such an intelligent dog as Mistaya to mentor our little Maggie. Maggie is watching everything Mistaya does and is learning so very quickly.
She was with us just 4 days when I heard her go to the door and scratch to be let out to do her business. Not even 3 months old yet!!
Thank you Mistaya for being such a wonderful dog.
