Wide Open Spaces

One of the spots that both Ricky and Lucy love going to lately is a field near White Rock Lake that also has lots of little trails to get lost in.

I put them on a 30 feet leash because I'm an overly protective mother.  Lots of people use this area as an off-leash park.  Hopefully we can get to that point eventually.  (Fortunately for us, we do have a huge gated field we go to some days--but that's a whole other blog post, which will be posted soon!)
It's a great, big, beautiful world out there!

and here's Lucy!
Lucy practicing her "stay", and looking so little and cute!

I take Lucy and Ricky to as many different places as I can think of.  Walking around the neighborhood streets each day just isn't enough!  Walks on the trails give them a whole new world of scents to work their noses.  And giving them a big, long leash (or even better-- no leash!) let's them move like dogs naturally do- speeding up and slowing down, stopping for a sniff when something's is really interesting, and just rolling around in the grass every now and then.
