Yesterday we took Odie for a walk and it was windy and pretty chilly. Her harness didn't fit over her jacket properly and she started walking really funny and super slow and I eventually ended up carrying her all the way back.
Here's my cold baby... Does anyone have any suggestions for harnesses that fit well over jackets? I know a lot of people use buddy belts, but I was thinking of something that maybe doesn't fit so close behind the leg. Puppia perhaps?
Then today we got lucky and it was 10 degrees and sunny! So beautiful out. She started her day by getting her nails trimmed (which is a breeze now btw) then we decided to take her to a park that we haven't been to with her before. She loved it. I mean LOVED it! She was all jazzed up and running around, smelling all the smells and just having the time of her life. Sunshine really does make a difference!
We don't usually encounter many obstacles on our walks since we just walk around the neighbourhood or hike up a mountain. This park had runners, bicycles, little kids, dogs, you name it. At one point she was walking right beside a noisy wheelchair and she didn't care at all. She's never had any issues but I was a little nervous because it was so busy. She was absolutely fine and looked like a pro. She's grown up to be such a well adjusted little dog. I'm so proud!
Here are some pics of Odie's day out:
All strapped in
I'm ready! Let's go!
I just love this because her shadow is so cute, but looks a little hairy because of her sweater
We walked up the the point that dogs were allowed and decided to stop on a bench to soak up some sunshine
Taking a little break and watching all the people walk by
Ahhh, this is the life
Rawr! I'm a dinosaur! Haha, this is mid-yawn
Afterwards we went to Odie's favourite pet store and she shopped for a treat
Treat time! I broke off a tiny piece of this for her. It's coated in yogurt and she wanted it at first but wouldn't eat it. She's a meat girl through and through.
Thanks for looking!
