Monday Pack Activities
The dogs spent a long time sniffing around in the tall grass when we first set out along the Baseline Trail at the Chautauqua this morning. As we continued on, there were a few more spots that the pack found just as interesting. Sputnik was usually the first one to veer off. Then, Mamacita, Rucksack, and Coco all came over to smell what scents Sputnik had found. Coco eventually lost interest and didn't bother to follow up for the last couple stops; instead opting to just stand in the trail and wait for her packmates to get moving again.
Thompson, Colby, and Stella were just as interested in sniffing around as their counterparts had been this morning. They were less in unison but equally enthusiastic, which made the first few minutes of the walk a bit challenging. Eventually, they settled into a rhythm where Thompson would hone in on the main point of interest and then his packmates would follow his lead. Later in the walk, Coco found a small stick beside the path and flaunted it in front of her packmates with flair. Colby watched her with interest while our two senior pack members just stood around and waited, unimpressed.
