Yesterday Henry and I packed up a picnic lunch for an afternoon in Michigan Park. Lunch, training and exercise!
Henry likes going with the long leash - he can sniff and
explore and I can keep him reasonably close. We stay away from the
picnic and play area and stick to the areas not used during school
hours. Remember we always do the
poop patrol - cleaning up after Henry and one other dog if we find
"evidence". With that - you can already guess what happened.
Crime and Punishment:
We've played in Michigan Park lots of times, but this trip a very
apologetic maintenance man
asked if we were just passing through or stopping. When I told him we
had stopped for lunch he invoked the "no dog" rule and politely booted
us. Henry was so hurt. He just could not figure out what he'd
done wrong. He is a responsible Whittier resident too. Oh, the double
standard. So painful. Ejected! I'm saying ejected!
So, today we went back to our favorite exercise walk - the Arroyo Pescadero Nature Perserve. These photos are the after photos. Its a wonderful walk but way longer than Henry and I are used to. This is the only time I can do a close up of the boy. He is pooped! I'm thinking I might need some down time too!
