Tuesday Pack Activities
Zoey took her brother's place on the hike this morning. She didn't follow Griff around the way Carl does; she is more self-directed and just sniffed around on her own schedule. Sputnik and Racer were very thirsty, and between them they drank most of the water from the Camelbak. Griff and Zoey each only took a little water. We took our time on the trail, and then meandered through the Chautauqua Park, stopping so the dogs could stretch out in the grass.
Rey's concerns about skateboarders started to bubble up again today, but she didn't have as much of a reaction as she has had in the past; she just rushed to the end of her leash with a very intent look, as a skateboarder rolled by us. Riley, Avo, Carl, and Mamacita all ignored the skateboarder, which may have helped influence Rey and tempered her reaction. She was definitely concerned, but didn't make a fuss about it. Other than that moment, the rest of the walk was calm and uneventful. Nobody rolled in the grass. We made a few stops so everyone could sniff around, but nobody tried to stir up any play. Everyone was happy to just walk along and take in the scenery.
