Hi Friends! It’s finally Friday! How was everyone’s week?
We’re so happy that it’s FRI-YAY! That means our weekend adventures are about to start! We haven’t had the opportunity to show you all the Christmas loot we got this year (WE GOT A LOT!) but definitely our FAVORITE gifts was…
…NEW CHUCK-IT BALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mom, stop taking pictures and throw the ball already! Look how nicely we are sitting and patiently waiting!
Wilhelmina’s Humom bought them for me! She knows how much I love to play fetch. And because I’m such a nice sister, I shared them with Nymeria too. (I should get some extra treats for that!)
My humom was very thankful for Wilhelmina’s humom for buying me these balls because I like to chew on them. Tennis balls aren’t very safe for pups like me because we can ingest those tiny yellow fibers and it’s not good for our tummies!
I love you, little blue ball. You are my best friend (after Wilhelmina of course!)
Nymeria is a very quick study. She’s already learned that she has to sit before our humom throws the ball. (In my case she makes me lie down because sometimes I get impatient and I jump up to grab it. That is a BIG no-no…humom gets super angry when we do that). Nymeria is also figuring out that she has to bring the ball back before the next one gets thrown. She’s not always consistent but for 2 months being here, I’d say she’s doing really well!
Here’s a video!
Do you remember in my last post I mentioned that Nymeria was really fast? In fact, sometimes TOO fast for me? Well, when it comes to chasing balls, she’s got nothing on me! Sometimes I’ll give her a chance and let her have the ball 😉
Nymeria is trying to get the ball from my mouth! But I caught it first!
We’re ready for the next throw!
Just when we thought the fun was over, our Humom took us to the forest!!!!! We thought we were going home but nope, our humom thought we could run around in the forest a bit! I was soooooooooooo so so so EXCITED!!!!!
We haven’t been able to go to the forest as often as we used to because my humom is still working on Nymeria’s recall. Since she is still a little nervous with strangers, we tend to go to off leash areas during non-peak times. Today was one of those times so Nymeria got to explore off leash on the less busier trails! She was SO HAPPY! She was really good too, she stuck close to me and Humom and when she saw other strangers walking by she would just hide behind a tree and watch them go by and then come back out.
Certain areas my humom will put her on leash because she doesn’t want Nymeria to get startled and run off deep into the forest where we can’t find her. It’s hard to find a time when the forest isn’t busy because it’s a very popular place, I mean, who wouldn’t want to take a stroll in a beautiful forest surrounded by trees, birds and water?? So any time we do go into the forest, it’s a real treat!
We had so much fun exploring together! We got super wet and muddy! It was great!
Unfortunately…the muddier the adventure, the higher change of a….BATH!!!!
Hurry! Give your best puppy dog eyes Nymeria! This is our last chance to change her mind!
Telling by how dirty our collars were…chances were slim of getting out of a bath…
In the end, it was all worth it! Boy are we pooped!!! Time to rest up for our next adventure tomorrow!!!
Good night friends! Hope you have a great weekend!
