Taking the puppy to Bruce Pit is a great change from her regular routine. Rob takes her on almost all of her walks, and she almost always goes to the same places (because that’s where she can run freely and play with other dogs), so once in a while it’s nice change up the scenery. Bruce Pit is a doggy heaven: acres and acres of fenced-in off-leash park, with sand pits, forest trails, and open hills. Some people have a bad opinion of the park, but it seems to be the only ones who feel that way are nervous dog owners who get apprehensive about other dogs being around. The whole point of having an off-leash area like this is for dogs to socialize, though, so if that’s not your thing than by all means, find someone else to enjoy nature ;)
Over the Christmas holidays I had family in town for a funeral. So, not the best of reasons. But I was so grateful when they took some time to visit with us. And since Blitzen the husky is a family member too, we met a Bruce Pit on a mild day so the dogs could run off some energy. When the weather is mild, people come out in droves! So many four legged friends for Meadow to play with!Blitzen and Meadow first met at a cottage this summer. They get along great — both are easy-going dogs!Anderson got a new camera for Christmas. Dad’s zombie impression??Romboughs through and through.
Things got a little silly.A common bottle-neck area shows the popularity of the park on nice days! For some this is the downfall. We’ve been there when it’s relatively quiet and when it’s full. We like both!I won’t be sad when the snow is gone, but Meadow sure will be! Clocks go back this weekend… bring on Spring!!!
