Saturday Nelson and I had a fun fall walk after nose work practice. Mom took us to a park to sniff and then for a nice walk on a beautiful day. Mom used to live near Blackhawk Lake, and we sometimes go there to walk. For Nelson it was his first time.
Nelson and I had a blast, but Mom says she now knows why she doesn’t usually walk the two of us together. We are kind of crazy on leash and seeing squirrels, we almost overpower her. It’s not a very long walk, but it is a pretty one for sure.
The lake is mostly surrounded by woods, so there are a ton of squirrels racing around. Mom’s arms had a good workout with the two of us, LOL! We are using our hands free leashes but still, she has to hold on tight.
Sometimes we got up on a tree stump for a photo. Mom says it is good to practice our balance and to learn posing for Nelson.
Saturday was almost eighty degrees, so when we were on the path in the direct sun, it was really warm. Our tongues got a real workout!
They are taking down a lot of trees, so we found another stump to take a photo on. Mom likes seeing my amber eyes in the sunlight.
There is a lookout place on the far end of the lake. Bailie says Mom always stops there for photos, so we stopped. A guy was sitting there and he could hear Mom calling us by name and then he started laughing. He says he works with two people named Olivia and Nelson. What a coincidence!
Here is a fun throw back photo to October 2013 when Bailie was just four months old, in the same spot we are in in the photo above the one with Katie, Emma, and Bailie. It is almost exactly nine years later!
Mom took some profile shots of each of us. This one is me, focusing on a squirrel in the woods. I really hold still when I’m focused like this.
Nelson wanted to look the other direction. He didn’t seem to find a squirrel to focus on. That is probably a good thing or he would be gone!
We had a short, but fun fall walk. As we were leaving the lake and taking this photo, Nelson spotted some people with a bunch of dogs. He likes to be “the man”. He was watching to make sure they didn’t come and kill us or anything like that. He loves meeting dogs, but he is careful if there are too many.
We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is for their Nature Friday blog hop.
