Let me tell you about some of my favorite things. I found out that I really like car rides. So far, I’ve gotten to ride to the vet, to doggie daycare, and sometimes we just ride around to see the countryside. I’ve learned to hop right in and out of the van. Sometimes I like to look out the window at the world rolling by and other times I curl up and take a nap.
Walks are also a fun part of my day. My foster brother Sooner and I head to the door when it’s time for a walk. I sit nicely to have my leash hooked up (I almost always get a treat when I do that). Usually Sooner, FD, and I go out together. We walk up to and then along the road. FD says we walk for about a half-mile at a time (whatever that means).
We do this at least four times a day. I think I could walk a lot farther than that if FD would let me. Cars coming along the road don’t scare me anymore because I know that FD won’t let me get hurt. When we get back home, Sooner and I run into the kitchen where we each get another treat.
Twice a week we do my new absolute favorite thing. Since FM and FD don’t have a fenced yard, they say that they don’t want us dogs to be outside unless we are hooked to a tie-out under their supervision or are on-leash.
But, twice a week, Sooner and I get to go in the van with FD and we all drive to what they call doggie day-care. Is this ever fun! We go into this big building. Sometimes there are five other dogs there and other times there might be fifteen dogs there. We play together as a pack or a couple of packs.
Since I’ve been with other dogs all my life, I’m definitely NOT scared of them! When the weather is good we all go outside to this really BIG yard where we can run and play, roll in the grass, and do whatever we want. We all kennel up once in the morning and once in the afternoon to take our naps and then we get to play some more.
FD comes by in the late afternoon to pick us up and we go home to eat supper. You wouldn’t believe how tired we are when we get home—but it is a “good” tired. One day I went to sleep after our post-supper walk before FD got my leash off!
