After lunch, we went to visit a doggie boutique, Hyde Bark. Dazzle saw a plush model and had to check it out. :-)
We went to the center part of the park where it was grassy and less crowded and he walked around a bit, past many people, greeted by kids and past a large fountain. When we found that the ice cream store had a line out the door, we decided to skip that.
Playing "jungle puppy" in the tall grass :-)
Dazzle and I went to the house of one of my friends (Dianne and Copper) and Dazzle slept for awhile in my arms and then played in her yard while we enjoyed his antics.
It was a long day and I got limited sleep last night (because yesterday ended around 2am and today started at 7:30 am.) After Dazzle slept for the hour ride home, he was ready to go again. He played for several hours and came very close to playing with the other dogs a few times. He raced around the "pool" (watering trough) playing with Buster. He got a little rough, but Dazzle started play fighting with him and barking at him from under the stairs near the pool.
I also worked on continuing to slowly introduce him to water so he can learn to love to swim. In the past few days, I have put him in the empty pool with only half the sloped bottom covered with a bit less than an inch of water. I gave him treats for walking in it. At first he didn't want to get his back feet wet, but eventually he was fine with walking right into the water. Today, I added more water slowly while he was in the pool. I continued to feed him treats for entering the deeper area. There was about 2" of water when I turned off the hose. Then, Mike tossed in a tennis ball and he played with that and splashed around with no problem. Between the treats and ball, Coyote and Bear also jumped in and walked around in the water with him. He seems just fine with the water up to his ankles now.
I haven't had a chance to upload the video taken today, but I will soon.
Tomorrow we have a 3pm Chiropractic appointment. I'm sure we'll find other fun things to do too!
