Odie had a BIG day out today! I love to take her out with me, but won't ever leave her in the car or anywhere alone so I reserve trips out with her to places like the pet store when I go to buy food. Today I decided to plan an Odie & Mommy day for Easter!
We started by doing an "egg" hunt, which was really a dried chicken hunt but that doesn't sound as cute. I've never done this with her before and she was so good at it! Mike held her while I hid the pieces and then he let her go and I went around with her and pointed to where the first couple of pieces were until she got it, and then whenever I would move to a new area, she'd search around and find the hidden piece. When she was all done, she got her new ducky toy and a bully stick.
She put the duck out of its misery quickly.
I knitted her a new sweater for Easter. This time I tried knitting two yarns at once. One was a blend of home spun alpaca and merino wool that I picked up at a craft fair and the other was a blend of silk and bamboo.
Next we went to the small dog only park. Big park, little dog!
For awhile we were the only ones in the small dog area...
But then some other dogs showed up!
Odie ran until she was tired enough that she didn't care about laying on the grass.
She met some new friends
Even some that were most definitely not supposed to be in the small dog area...
It was SO nice out today! No sweater needed. It's Susan Lanci weather!
