Tetsu had to work yesterday (Saturday) so I thought I'd go into the next town and bring him a Starbucks for a treat.
"BARK! BARK! BARK!"
"Okay, okay. You can come too."
It was a lovely day and not far from us is a very large park with a dog run (that I've never seen anyone use). Let's make a stop at the park. I checked out the dog run (which you have to pay to use) and then went and got the key and sign the necessary papers to make use of it. Choco was very excited.
We think that Choco is part Pointer, part Dalmation. She barks continually at birds and on the few occasions when Choco has gotten loose she is outa here and no stopping her! It is so futile to go chasing after this dog because she is so dang fast. But just to watch her go and not at least try to catch her before she gets into trouble seems very irresponsible. So I chase and she thinks it a great game. Even walking Choco, though I'm not feeble, I can't keep up with her pace and she is always pulling ahead. Poor dog wants to run!
The dog run was designed with an inner fenced in area and an outer track and we went in and I took Choco off her leash! What fun! Can that dog go! Almost too fast for me to catch her on camera but I snapped one picture before she flew off the screen. After awhile we were joined by another dog but that didn't work out too well. They didn't like each other so Choco went out on the track for awhile and ran laps (whether she wanted to or not I don't know. She wanted to get at the dog inside the run!) while the other dog played.
There were toys and games around for the dogs but Choco didn't give a glance at those. She ran and slid like a baseball player heading in to home base and she really tired herself out! A good day for Choco and watching her made me laugh!
We made our stop at Starbucks and she sat somewhat quietly on the porch area while I enjoyed a Latte. And Choco was very happy to see Tetsu when we delivered his Caramel Macciato Frappe.
"Dad! Dad! You should see me run!!"
