Egypt and Darrell waiting patiently while I registered
Me trying to distract Bob from the little girl that
I'm positive was trying to slip him Cheetos.
Well we all got separated at the very beginning of the walk, Laz is a fairly new rescued dog so Tieg wanted to stay towards the back where there wasn't too many other dogs or people. He was a really well behaved dog but likes to pull when he wants something - he's a chow mix so pretty big and strong. So, Shelley, Tieg, Bob, Laz and I were pretty much at the back of the crowd, which was fine with me because with all those other dogs Bob was pulling bad. It was easier to pause every time he pulled when there weren't a lot of people behind us. He got it about 10 minutes in though - I felt bad because he kept choking himself but he finally settled and walked nicely.
Bob checking out a stroller - its funny how right
when the camera goes up they stop being good lol.
Bob and Laz walking very nicely together.
The walk was a 1.75 mile loop that we were to do twice, I was happy about that just incase Bob's stamina wasn't up for the whole 3 miles but when we made the first loop he was still pretty into it. I was actually surprised that Bob was able to finish the walk - 3 miles is a long walk for 3.5 month old! I figured that since he wasn't lagging behind and still putting a bit of tension on the leash he would be fine. I made sure to give him plenty of water breaks too so that helped. I was also really proud of him because he never once attempted to go to the bathroom! With all that excitement around I thought for sure he would start sniffing halfway through but he just kept on trudging. I did give him a chance to go though once the race was over. It was a pretty good morning in my opinion. However Bob's stamina was not in anyway depleted with our walk - he slept in his hour before and after lunch and after that he was completely normal! Haha - I was hoping for a passed out puppy all day long. But thats one thing I have noticed about Bob - He's either awake or asleep, not in between - never sleepy lol. I have been wanting to trim his nails and was told to try it when he's asleep, well as soon as you touch him he's wide awake! I guess I'll just have to hog tie him or something haha.
Tired little Bob at the end of the walk, he's
panting but you can't really tell from
the angle, he got water right after this.
Oh, news! Guess who whistles while he barks?! Well not really but Bob's front tooth is missing!! lol His little hole is so goofy looking! Here's a pic to show it!
I'm not sure if that other front tooth is a new or old one, it looks new to me, maybe that't because it's tiny.. at least I got to see what missing puppy teeth looks like!
