Did We Walk The Dogs or Did They Walk Us

>> Wednesday, July 14, 2010

We went back to the Southeastern Guide Dog to take some of the older dogs for a walk to get some exercise.

This is Rocky with Mosi (the kids think he was named Rocky because he matches all of the huge rocks around the buildings).

This is Charlie. He did not have as much energy as Rocky but was still enjoying the outdoors.
We walked the dogs for about a half hour, I think they walked us more though.  We were pretty amazed with how strong these dogs are and tried very hard to keep them from pulling us too much.  Just when we had thought we had mastered control they saw a few of their other dog friends out for a walk so they took off running through a patch of water and mud with us following behind.  We think they thought it was play time.
We had a big laugh about getting our mud baths especially when the little kids were cracking us laughing at Mosi and me.
We went and took the dogs back to get brushed then went to the car to clean up a bit.  Good thing I had water and towels in there left over from the beach.  We then headed over to Hug some Puppies.

We don’t know when we will be back but we hope soon.  We encourage anyone who is visiting around the Parrish, FL to stop by and visit.  They could use more walkers and huggers along with supplies.
Here are some of the things they need to care for the puppies and digs in training.  You can drop them off or mail them in.
