back to the park

It was a chilly morning, and we were up early, so I thought it was the perfect time to bring Oreo to the park Chewy and I had discovered last week.

There was only one other car there when we arrived, so I had my fingers crossed for a nice relaxing walk.

Oreo did really well once we got onto the trail.  He was sniffing and exploring.

 Here's a video of Oreo enjoying the creek.

He made it through the tall grassy section with no problem.

Posed on a rock for me!

Went hunting in the tall grass.

He struggled a bit when we hit the wide open field, but some lemon mustard chicken helped him out, and we were quickly back in the woods by the creek.

 Lots of posing sessions.

He even got his toes wet.

We were headed back on our loop and had wandered off the trail a little to scope out the creek, when a man with a dog came up behind us.  Oreo saw them first and got nervous and barky.  The man was nice enough to not come any closer, so distance and meatballs helped calm Oreo down enough for us to get back to the car without him having a complete meltdown.
Good dogs.

Yay! It sounds like it was a successful walk. I hope you get to enjoy many more. It is a really beautiful park.

Way to go Oreo - you did awesome buddy. Poor Denny had a bit of a melt down today - we went to our tree top park and as we came out of our favorite side path an whole group on kids appeared around the corner...he flattened himself to the ground and wouldn't move so we just waited until they passed. I swear he could of passed for one of those fainting goats. Love your new park....maybe daily trips will make it easier for him?

Way to go Oreo! Sara, you are so patient and understanding with him. I know a lot of people who would/have just stop trying to take their nervy dogs anywhere new. He looks happy by the stream!
Such handsome boys!
