Slice of Life #13- A Walk in the Park

 

How can you have a bad day after hanging out with these smiles?

I have lots of little things I do to destress, but my go-to is walking the dogs.  We walk in rain, snow, heat, and wind.  As I tell anyone who asked me about Australian Shepherds, “They are our own personal trainers!”

Thanks to daylight savings time and the warmer weather today we were able to go out to the park with our dog friends.  A huge group of nine dogs (4 Aussies, 4 Huskies, and a Mastiff) and a lot of long line leashes enjoyed exploring the muddy trails and freshly melted snow.

The dogs love these romps but truthfully, I might enjoy them more.  Sunlight, fresh air, and lots of puppies- what more could a girl ask for?

The picture above is from the end of the walk.  We were only out for about forty-five minutes but I felt like a new person by the end.  And judging by the smiles in the photo above the dogs were pretty content, too. I’m so happy that spring is almost here and that it does not get dark out before 7pm anymore.  The dogs are definitely happy about that, too!

(And they have been sleeping ever since we got home.  They woke up for dinner and a quick trip outside, but it’s been sleepytime since then.  That’s the other great part of our group walks.  At the end, we have a lot of very tired dogs!)

  1. The walking is great for all of you! When I had a dog he would sleep so contentedly after a morning run!
