One of the benefits of having Buddy is that he makes me walk. He only weighs 14 pounds but he is very powerful. He has the ability and willingness to whine for HOURS. And since his favorite thing is walks, he whined a lot. Until he got me trained. Once we were up to four walks a day, the whining stopped, unless I was a bit late heading for the leash. I don't know where Buddy keeps his watch but he is very committed to staying on a schedule.
This morning we had an early morning pee walk. That technically should not be necessary, since he has access to a lovely fenced yard, but he prefers a different view. Later we were having a destination walk - we drive someplace and walk.
This morning, Buddy was very excited to be in the car. On our way to the dog park he was so excited, he whined and barked continuously. Ignored pets, favorite treats...just whined. No drooling, no anxiety, just excitement.
I couldn't stand it anymore so instead of going to the dog park we went to the much closer Lake Mary Event Center. It was closed so we had the place to ourselves. I was surprised to find furniture set up on the terrace and everything open. What a lovely surprise. We'll happily go there for future walks. Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of the sand hill cranes.
