Friday Pack Activities

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 few breaks in the shade, Poppy and Ruffers - who both have tended to avoid the water from the CamelBak spout - actually took a drink along with Zoey. Near the end of our walk, Poppy flopped around in the grass like mad

Thursday Pack Activities

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.

Wednesday Pack Activities

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 and Rey paired off, and Zoey and Ruffers paired off. After a minute of play, I got everyone back on track for the remainder of the walk.

Tuesday Pack Activities

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.

Monday Pack Activities

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 a few wiggles in the grass, of course. The others just sniffed around and nibbled at the grass. Poppy was the peppiest of the pups; but even though she had plenty of energy, she was still drawn to wading through tall

Thursday Pack Activities

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 the decision between focusing on me with the treat, or on the other dog; but the treat finally won out.

Wednesday Pack Activities

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 seem they might be a bit too long for her, now. Poppy mostly just knows Mamacita from the packmobile, and she was especially happy to have another friend join for the walk. When Mamacita went for her usual wiggles in t

Tuesday Pack Activities

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.

Monday Pack Activities

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, Zoey and Rey kept wanting to pause at shaded spots along the way, while Riley would have been happy to keep going.

Adventure Pack Roger Roger was very affectionate as he greeted me for the first time since the stay-at-home orders took effect. He snuggled into me and then lay down partly in my lap. Mamacita's stomach seemed to be feeling better today, but she still wanted to take her time as we trekked the trails at CU South - particularly during the first 30 minutes. Variety Pack Poppy was giddy with excitement to see Zoey and Ruffers this afternoon, and they responded with warm greetings of their own. Zoey and Poppy had a taste for broad blades of grass beside Bear Creek today. Ruffers perused the greenery alongside them, but did not partake in nibbling on it.

Thursday Pack Activities

Variety Pack Storm clouds loomed as the pack headed out on the Bear Creek Path this afternoon, with a light drizzle falling on us. Lightning started moving in as the rain fell harder, so we took shelter in an underpass at Broadway. Riley, Zoey, and Avo all waited patiently with me as I squatted down with them for several minutes while the rain and lightning swelled. A trickle of water started to creep down the gutter at the side of the underpass. Avo hopped to her feet and stared with curiosity as the water neared and then flowed past us. Riley poked at my face with her nose every time I glanced at her. Zoey stood next to me, waiting patiently for the walking to resume. Once the storm

Adventure Pack Mamacita and Ruffers headed back to CU South today. The trails were busier than this past, rainy Monday, but they weren't crowded. Mamacita set an especially leisurely pace today. Her stomach was bothering her, and she nibbled some grass until she eventually turned it back up. I thought she might perk up after getting that out of her system, but she kept heading back over to the grass beside the trail so she could wiggle around in it. Ruffers also wanted to make lots of stops as well, but she just sniffed around. She often wanted to sniff in different directions than where Mamacita wanted to wiggle, so each waited for the other to do their thing. Variety Pack Poppy was v

Variety Pack Avo, Rey, and Zoey were all very happy to see each other this afternoon. With the sun shining and yesterday's rain dried up, the dogs were not as interested in sniffing around as yesterday's packs were. Of course, they still got a nose-full here and there. Shortly after we started the return leg of our walk at the Bear Creek Path, Avo dropped down into the grass and eyed her packmates mischievously. Rey took the bait and pounced. Zoey, who often sits out while her packmates get wound up, was feeling more lively today and joined in with Rey to jump around Avo, while Avo dodged and flailed about. After a minute of that, everyone settled back down, and the rest of our walk wa

Adventure Pack Mamacita and Ruffers were the first pack members to come out since our COVID19 hiatus. They both greeted me with lots of wags and wiggles; however, after the initial hello, Mamacita was all business. She led me to the car purposefully, without a glance back to me. She got up at our next stop to sniff hello with Ruffers, who whined and jumped around to show me her excitement. On the trail at CU South, we took a leisurely pace in the light rain, as the pair of them were very interested in taking in all the scents along the way. I stopped and squatted down to dog level to take a moment with them every so often. Ruffers always came right over to me to sniff and check in. Ma
