to the park
Spanky went on his first visit to the park! This was a people park, not a dog park. He was a bit tentative getting out of his car crate - it's an awfully big world, you know. But after a few minutes, he felt confident enough to explore. He immediately went up to a group of young kids - all under 4 - tail wagging. He really seems to love the little kids. He got many pats, hugs, and kisses - all of which he thoroughly soaked up. We then went around a 10 minute walking trail. He stopped and said hello politely to everyone he met. He especially liked a beautiful Golden Retriever lady named Miley - he had a fun romp with her. He then went back in his car crate, and slept the way home. Spanky is a great car traveler - doesn't get car sick or anxious - just curls up and sleeps, or looks with interest out the window. What a good boy!
