Wednesday Pack Activities
Mamacita always gets up to greet Griff in the packmobile, on the rare occasions when they end up coming out together. She is content to lie in place and let her other packmates come to her, to sniff hello. But she never can wait to greet Griff! The trails were quite muddy, as the already-warming weather made quick work of the snowfall from Monday night. Rucksack and Griff enjoyed running through the fields and hills together. Rucksack was happy to greet a pair of Miniature Poodles along the way. Sputnik, on the other hand, gave a shrill, anxious growl as they passed by. He almost always shows some such anxiety towards the first dog (or group of dogs) that we see on the trails, but then typically keeps his cool about any subsequent encounters.
Monarch, Rey, and Isaac all found the wet grass to be very good for munching on, during our walk around Wonderland Lake this afternoon. Clover, Zoey, and Roger Roger didn't mind pulling over and sniffing around a bit, but they didn't show the same interest in grass-nibbling as their friends. Rey became very excited about some small birds that dropped in along the path, and she tried many times to leap toward them. I can only imagine how worked up she would have been about the bold magpie the Adventure Pack encountered yesterday.
