Vermont, Days 3 and 4

Outside of the two crazy incidents, yesterday was a lot of fun. David and I took Dahlia up to the park in the morning. She got to play with a yellow lab for a short bit (and yay for the guy telling us his dog was harmless and that he was fixed!) and then chased after a ball for a bit. She actually got the zoomies and ran around us a few times with it before eventually coming near us and dropping it. She's no expert fetcher, but she's getting better at it!

Then David headed off to church with his parents, Dahlia and I took our ill-fated walk, and then spent some time just hanging out on the porch.

The afternoon was spent tromping around down by the Connecticut River in Bellows Falls, checking out some more mill foundations and getting some more pictures. We finally got a chance to relax some that evening and I finally finished the book I had been reading and started another. All in all, despite a couple bumps on the road due to crazy and arrogant people, we had a nice day.

David's mother, btw, drove by the house with me and she took down the information about the guy and his dog. She's going to go over to Town Hall this week to talk to them about it! Rock on Marta!

Dahlia gets the zoomies! I stopped filming too early because she got back up ran around us again and then laid down at our feet and shoved the ball at us. It was too cute!

This man and his husky were across the river from us. As soon as the dog saw us he started to howl. Cute!

This morning we took Dahlia for a walk in one of the local cemeteries, had a nice lunch and then headed home. It was a pretty easy trip home though traffic was a bit much sometimes. We left about 1:30pm and with a 15-20 minute stop in Chester to check out the antique store, got home in about 5 hours. Not bad at all!

Such a poser!

On the way home, we stopped at this lovely church in Hoosick that we've always meant to stop at. It's just beautiful!

Trouble~~You Want It? You Got Her!!

Very cute pics! My mutts and Dahlia would get along swimmingly, chasing each other into exhaustion. *lol*

We still need to get Abby fixed (was she broke?) hopefully by the end of this year, it will depend on our finances. I also have hopes to get her into puppy daycare a couple of times a week so she can run off some steam~~Roscoe has reached the age where he will play when *he* wants to (he'll be 6 next April), which is not when Abby wants. ;~D

So, fixing comes first; Puppy daycare second; CGC & Service Training third.

Sounds like a good plan! Have you looked into low cost spay/neuter programs. Sometimes you can get it done for a much reduced cost! Might be worth checking into.

Dahlia is not THE most playful dog...she's gotten more so since we got her, but she still sometimes doesn't seem to get it. I love when she does and runs around with other dogs.
