Hiking with Friends!
This weekend mom brought along my cousin dog friend....little Atley! (who actually isn't so little). We had soooo much fun together!
Atley was supposed to be a seeing eye dog, but he had a "career change," because apparently he was confused about where to go to the bathroom. The truth of the matter is... that he told me actually QUIT! He put in his resignation because he felt it wasn't the right career path for him. I don't blame him!! I could never be on leash forever. But I suppose some doggies really like it. It takes all kinds!
I had to work extra hard in the hills with Atley around, and my multi-tasking skills were at a all time high...I not only had to fetch the ball... but herding Atley was a challenge! Auntie Suzie was (what people call) "out of it" due to some sort of boy situation. (I understand completely because my boyfriend, cody, exhausts me as well.)
Atley just wouldn't stay on the path! Thank goodness I was there to control him.
After the hike, however, I could see that he had fun. But unfortunately, he couldn't hold out for the car ride home. He's got a lot of energy...but he is no Border Collie! I have so much to teach him! I can't wait for our next hike together...
