Fields of Gold


We went on a walk in a park today. I didn't take many pictures because we did some behavior mod work for the first time in a long time (which was really no more than doling out cookies as jogging men passed by, but still!), but have these from a stroll down a golden grass-filled trail. It was pretty.



And, my favorite of the bunch...


This trail was quiet, but some other parts of the park were pretty busy. There were a lot of walkers and joggers around, mostly men, some coming within feet or inches of my scaredy girl. The main road just feet away roared and added to the commotion. Marge did well - we did some short on-leash recalls (just basically calling her back to me as she walked ahead) and she was slow, but that was the only sign that she gave of being uncomfortable.

I'm really excited for our practice session tomorrow. It's indoors at a totally private training facility, which means nothing else will be going on other than the small run-through group I'll be a part of. One of the other teams will be an agility classmate of ours, so I think that will give Marge some comfort. I hope it lives up to my expectations and Marge has a good time.
