As we were getting Doc acclimated with everything we thought it would be a good idea to take him for a walk on the trail next to the dog park. There are lots of people and dogs on the trail so it would help us gauge Doc’s reaction to strangers and other animals. Quick disclaimer: they did behavioral tests on Doc at the shelter and he did great but we just wanted to double check everything before we just let him loose in the dog park.
Doc loved the walk and being out on the trail. He was great but he gets a little too excited when he sees another dog. He starts whining, barking and jumping trying to play with the other dog. He did this when he met Tucker too.
Mom, hurry up brover is beating us.
In a way its cute because he really wants to play with the other dog but its also not good because its a 110 pound dog jumping up and down which can be scary to many people. So that is something we are working on.
That’s better! Look at us go!
Minis the overwhelming excitement he displayed we were pleased because it was excitement and he so obviously liked other dogs. The trail was beautiful and we packed plenty of water for frequent breaks, that was a mess. They got more water on me than they drank but it’s worth it to keep them hydrated.
Mom, water….Can I jump in?
Doc and Tucker were tired by the time we got back to the car and ready for some AC. They actually ride really well in the car together. Doc is a bit of a seat hog but Tucker adapts.
Mom, he is in my spot…..
Ok this is better. Feel the AC!!!! You can have the back brover.
Cool people in the front seat only.
The only thing that makes traveling with Doc difficult is the slober. Its everywhere and gets on everything.
Mom, gross look at what he did.
Brover got his slime all over the seats too.
I will be creating a list of rules as we go with Doc. Of course there are exceptions to everything so those will be included on the way as well.
Rule #1: Slober Rag is a Must When Traveling
Exception: No exceptions he mass produces slober.
