Oh what fun it is to walk my dog Dusty!
Wednesday, December 30, 2020
I go for a walk with my golden retriever Dusty just about everyday! Sometimes we go for short walks and sometimes we go for long walks that can total up to three miles. This is great for a dog who is fourteen years old! We go all over the place. One of our favorites is the Roy Park where they have Christmas lights up! It is awesome to behold. Dusty has a friend that lives in the house next to the park. He is usually outside so when Dusty sees him he runs back and forth along the fence with the dog. He has alot of fun. It has been very chilly but he doesn't seem to mind! He will walk in the snow even though I try to lead him out of it and even eat it! He has also been known to lead me home. We walk through an elementary school and he will find the entrance and turn around and walk home. This is how I know he isn't in the mood for a long walk but he will cross the street to head out to the long walk when he feels like it. He is also very good about stopping before we cross the road and when I tell him to come back he does! He doesn't really need a leash but I put one on him anyway. I think that when the new Golden Puppy that I am planning to get he will teach him well. Today was a cold but invigorating walk. I will continue to walk Dusty until he decides he can't do it anymore. It is always a fun time when I walk Dusty and I hope we enjoy many more walks.
