We went for a nice walk near an old military base. The dogs are getting very good about walking on lead in a bigger group. It was an enclosed area, so I let Beebe drag a leash. Farrah is so full of herself with so much drive, she caught the end of Beebe’s lead and took big sister for a walk instead. She was obviously very proud of herself.
A Veteran’s hospice/dementia care hospital was at the end of our walk. Farrah made her first guest appearance with some of the disabled soldiers. They were all happy to see such a pretty and well behaved little pup and they gave her pieces of chicken I brought with me. She made a beeline for one young gentleman who was just settling in on his first day in the nursing home. You could see he was a bit down and unsure of everything. His face lit right up and I was super pleased with her. She really showed some self control and only jumped up a few times, no mouthing, no grumbling, but always with a constant wag and licks. No pictures for privacy reasons, but I got to see a wonderful side of her today and at 5 months old, I would love to keep up this type of work with her as she grows. Grym gets to go next 🙂
