We visited the off leash dog park today, and being a weekend, there were at least 40 dogs there today. Every now and then Kipawa would venture far away from me with the other dogs. Being a bit of a nervous new mom, I called out his name and he came zooming back to me - kind of like reporting back to me about the activities that had just occurred. Hurray! Recall training is starting to work!
Kipawa made friends with everyone, except a barky Cavalier King Charles. Actually, none of the dogs liked it. His favourite friend was a border collie - they ran and ran together. A couple of times Kipawa went so fast, he lost his footing in the sand, and did a few log rolls. He bounced up like nothing happened. I am so glad that he isn't a confrontational dog. It makes taking him to a dog park a fun, relaxing time.
I also saw the biggest dog I have ever seen in my life - an English Mastiff. Tall and bulky, a ginormous head that looked bigger than a human head! I felt like saddling it and taking it for a ride. When Kipawa stood near it, he looked like a teacup sized dog.
I got my new camera (Canon) today, but I need to sit with it and fiddle before I can use it successfully, so no pictures today.
