|Maya walking with Felix today.|
|It was the puppy's first walk and he|
|It's a lab thing - it never occurs|
to him that another dog wouldn't
want to be his friend.
|We walked about 1.5 miles, far enough for his|
first hike and far enough for Maya who was
fasting today because her guts were grumbling
|He approached this cut log as if he|
was uncertain about what it was.
Everything is new to a puppy.
Felix's intended adoption fell through today, and I'm glad it did. I had written the adopters about setting up a time for Saturday and since they did not currently have a dog, I reminded them about what it means to have a puppy. Although he's a good one, puppies poop, pee, and chew -- it's just inevitable. They must have taken my warning to heart and decided that they didn't really have the time to devote to him. I'd rather they change their mind now than after a few days, weeks, or months from now. I'll take Felix to an adoption event on Saturday and we'll try again.
After a short walk with Felix and Maya, I took Max out alone for another three miles. I've been walking him and Maya together and he pulls like a draft horse normally. But today, on his own, he really didn't pull at all. A lot of that must be due to competition to be out front. We had a pleasant walk. He has grown to be a pretty good trail dog.
