It was doggy good fun on our beach walk over the weekend. Our friend Nina from Westport phoned to say she was going to be passing by and had adopted her first ever dog and was hoping our boys would like to meet her and have a play. It was the boys turn to play host for a change.
Happy to meet her they were – hello Raewyn! She is truly gorgeous, a golden lab/whippet cross. Super adorable with fantastic manners for only seven months old. Super happy to meet the boys who are always glad for some doggy company.
It was a blustery morning but no rain so we headed down to the beach for walk/run/play. It was all on. Nico our dalmatian loves all creatures that move so was happy for an energetic play date. Going by the fact he then slept the afternoon away, I’m picking she may have worn him out!
Ziggy, our German Short-haired Pointer has had a sore paw of late so he spent most of the walk restrained on a lead so as not to aggravate the injury again – much to his displeasure. Actually he is pretty good as he knows we are just looking out for him. He had a bit of time off lead to play with Raewyn and was happy to run around too for a while.
Everyone enjoyed the outing and I know Nina is going to make a great “Mum” to Raewyn.
Look forward to seeing you both back again real soon.
