Charley’s First Walk in the Woods

On Saturday, we headed out to our local state park for a walk in the woods.  The park had been closed right after Hurricane Sandy and had only reopened about a month ago.  This pic was taken on Saturday!  Still a lot of down trees.


It was nice to get out and enjoy it again. We were concerned because Charley’s been swallowing sticks, but he did okay. And, I mean look at these pics; these guys are like frick and frack.  Just delightful.




I have to say, the double sit is difficult! I am very impressed with you guys who can get your dogs to line up and look at the camera! Anyway, a great time was had by all on our walkie!  (Is it me or does Finn look like she wants out of this walkie?  BOL!)

    That is soooooo the normal picture….with both dogs looking in different direction and avoiding the camera it usually takes me 20 or so shots and a treat in hand to get one good photo. I bet they both loved their walk.

    Glad you got back out in to the woods. Trust me, it takes MOM a while to get all the pups I walk with to sit still for a group shot. Lets just say there is a few treats involved.

    Great job going side by side you two! We can tell it made your Mom VERY happy. We’re glad the park re-opened bcuz it looks like a great place to take a walk.

    Mommy said it IS hard to get two to sit side-by-side. She’s got to be quick on the camera bcuz it don’t last long.

    Walking together is a great way for pups to bond. We mix it up here and take turns with each other. Mom says just have some really tasty treats in your human paws and you will get that perfect pose:)

    Oh things are coming along so nicely! We knew it would, just takes a little time. And the 2-dogs-sitting-getting-pics-taken thing will come together too. In the meantime, bait them with a treat!

    Your Pals,

    It’s been three years with Monty and we still can’t get him to actually sit next to Sam. There is usually about a 1 1/2 foot gap between them. It’s all about the angle…
