Adventure Pack Sputnik rejoined the Adventure Pack alongside Roger Roger this morning. The two of them had a lot of fun exploring the trails at CU South together, and got to spend a little bit of the time off-leash. Sputnik minded his manners very well when we passed other dogs along the way, as did Roger Roger. Variety Pack Poppy, Zoey, and Ruffers kept up a pretty good pace throughout our walk along the Bear Creek Path this afternoon, despite the heat. During one of our
Adventure Pack Riley, Avo, and Mamacita enjoyed wading through the tall grass beside Bear Creek, this afternoon. There were a lot of scents to discover, and blades of grass to chew on. Later on, Avo flopped around on the cut grass of the park beside the path, with Riley jumping around her. Mamacita went for a wiggle on her own at one point, while Avo and Riley stood by me and waited for her.
Variety Pack The pack hung out under the canopy of a large tree as an afternoon shower passed by, at the beginning of our walk. Later on, Poppy and Rey got very excited about a bird who was perched on a fence beside the path today. They both leapt toward it in unison, which was enough to cause the bird to vacate its perch and land in the grassy park on the other side of the fence, a ways off. After that, Poppy kicked off a round of playful dodging and wrestling, with Poppy
Adventure Pack Mamacita and Avo had a lot of fun rolling around in the grass together, when we stopped for a break in the shade during our walk along the Bear Creek Path. Rey was excited about her packmates' antics, and hopped in with them for a moment. When I got the ladies to settle down, Rey turned her attention to chewing on the many twigs that were lying around. It was a fun and care-free afternoon for the pack.
Adventure Pack Zoey and Ruffers enjoyed a bit of off leash time at CU South today. Once we got out onto the trail, we went a while without encountering other hikers; but there were quite a few other dogs as we approached the pond near the parking lot. A Mastiff named Sergeant stopped by to sniff hello. Ruffers was especially interested in a little, white dog (possibly a Bichon Frise?) who also came over and followed along behind us for a brief stretch.
Adventure Pack Roger Roger had a fun time on the CU South trails this morning. There were a lot of friendly dogs out. A few stopped over to politely sniff greetings with Roger Roger, which made him very happy. Variety Pack Since the weather has warmed up, it has often been a challenge getting the packs to walk. Mamacita, Zoey, Poppy, and Ruffers all wanted to veer off into the cool grass numerous times while we traveled the Bear Creek Path this afternoon. Mamacita enjoyed
Variety Pack Avo and Riley enjoyed their walk along the Bear Creek Path this afternoon. We made a few stops in shaded, grassy areas. During one such break, Avo reclined dramatically and then refused to get up again until I squirted her belly with some water from the CamelBak. Riley and Avo were both happy to get treats when I saw another dog approaching on the path. As soon as she smelled the morsel, Avo's full attention was on me. Riley was a bit more distraught over th
Adventure Pack Ruffers was eager to follow some scents at CU South this morning. I humored her to an extent, but reigned her in when she seemed like her nose was drawing her toward some far off ditch or another in a hurry. We hung out in the shade and I wrestled around with her and gave her some belly rubs while she groaned and pawed at me. Variety Pack Mamacita joined the afternoon pack today, since she is starting to slow down a bit in her older age and the morning hikes
Variety Pack The pups were pretty lazy in today's heat. Rey and Avo kept veering off from Bear Creek Path to lounge in shaded, grassy areas along the way. They each took a lot of water from the CamelBak, as well. Despite the general lethargy, Avo still had enough energy to bark at a skateboarder who rode by at one point, and Rey joined in the admonishment. Also, the pair of them turned a couple of their shade breaks into wrestling sessions.
Adventure Pack Ruffers and Mamacita took their time on the trails at CU South again. Mamacita wiggled in the grass on three separate occasions. Ruffers looked longingly at each dog we passed, and a few who were off leash came by for a quick rump-sniff. Variety Pack Rey, Riley, and Zoey were all happy to take drinks from the CamelBak during our afternoon walk. It was one of the hottest days of the season so far, with clear, blue skies. Despite their lighter-colored coats,
