Weekends off are always fun, as we get to take Ramsay on extended morning walkies - usually someplace other than the ole neighborhood. This past weekend, we happened upon a 9-11 Tree Memorial in an area of the local rail trail that we had not yet explored.
Of course, no walk is complete unless dogbert gets excited about something, and that day it was birds of any sort. Be they finches in the grass or the trees, ducks crossing the road, or geese wading into the river - if Ramsay saw them, they had his complete attention until we walked far enough away. Happily he didn't bark or lunge at them - just watched intently (tail wagging) for a hot minute before resuming his walk. Once again, big change from Mr. Barky von Dachshund of only a month ago. Our little snausage IS growing up!
