Hiking on the Holidays

On Sunday we had, what is turning into almost a weekly tradition, another pack walk.  Before hand, Maggie and I met a couple of friends, including her boyfriend Jango, at the dog park.  Maggie was stellar!  She ran and played and was perfect the whole time.  It is absolutely amazing to me to see the improvement in her.  Mere months earlier, if a new dog had ran into her or gotten in her face too quickly, she would almost certainly have responded with a snip or growl in their direction.  It is important to note, this is a fear based behavior, not an aggressive one as many people are quick to assume.  Not today though!  Maggie was so good, even when a fight broke out, she stuck near my side and continued to happily play with the dogs around us.

 After we played at the dog park, we went to the meeting spot for this week’s pack walk.  One of the regular’s had been suggesting that we try a new park, Lafayette Heritage, so we finally decided to give it a whirl.  It was great!  We had our largest turnout yet; I believe there were 15 dogs dogs there total including quite a few adoptable dogs!  By the time we got home, Maggie was completely tuckered out, and acted a tad bit drunk.  It was a hoot.

Since both Rich and I had today off for the holiday, we decided to head back to Lafayette Heritage, this time with all three pups and my camera in tow.  Enjoy some pictures from our beautiful hike:

  1. Have had some pretty close calls with bikers on the upper trails. Yep, best not to go on them with a large group of dogs though. I am always amazed and thankful that this beautiful piece of land exists for all of us to enjoy right here in Tallahassee.

  2. Tim was out mountain biking while we were on the pack walk. When he was on the berm that crosses the lake he came up on a pygmy rattler right on the trail! That’s the same place we walked!

    • Where is it that you and your human live? If it’s anywhere near FL, you should convince your humans to bring you done for a pack walk and to experience the beach!
