So much happened for Sammie this weekend, it’s hard to know where to even begin! I suppose today I’ll start with our trip to the dog park Saturday.
The weather was beautiful for once, so we knew it would be the perfect day to go. When we arrived, there were two vehicles in the parking lot, but they were loading up and leaving. And while there were quite a few dogs in the small dog park, there weren’t any in the large dog park! We were so upset – we figured with it being the weekend and temperatures in the 50s or 60s (F), there would be lots of dogs. It turns out we just needed a little patience. Several minutes after we arrived, another dog came. And then another. And another. And another! After an hour, there were more dogs than I have seen there in a long, long time. And they were all dogs we hadn’t seen before! There was even another German Shepherd pup named Tucker that Sammie had a great time running with (although he was trying to… um, exert his dominance… and she was making him catch her first).
By the time we left, Sammie was spent. And we were happy that she finally got to go out and socialize. Hopefully, this nice weather continues and we can make another outing this soon.
