Hello everyone, Dakota here. I thought I would share with you some photos of today's walk (you know, that thing I was sulking about the other day) and the area by our new house.
Georgia and I get our walks together. We have a combined weight of about 60 kg (over 130 lbs) and that husky pulling power, so needless to say sometimes mom has a difficult time walking us. When we see other doggies we want to run up and say hello, and we usually end up dragging her along. But usually we walk very nicely. We even have a system--I walk on the left and Georgia walks on the right. Here I am in perfect walking form with a loose leash.
Mom and dad have a clever way of getting us to walk nicely. When we walk at their sides and look up at them, they give us a treat. It keeps us from pulling and sniffing everything constantly. A treat in the mouth is better than a sniff in the grass (hee hee). Here I am, showing what a good dog I am (treat, please).
And here's Georgia asking for her treat. Her golden retriever ears flap and fly about when she walks, so she looks pretty silly.
When we're in a tight spot and can't walk on the side, we go out front in formation. Won't we make a great sled dog team?
This is the path we have been walking along. It runs a couple of miles along the edge of the harbour, and it's a nice safe place for us without too many distractions (except for the occasional seagull).
And finally here we are posing for a nice portrait.
