It's almost feeling like spring!

It's been fantastically beautiful out the past couple of days and lucky enough we made it to the park yesterday for a small hike and walk.  Sadie as usual, had a blast, roaming through the woods, running in the streams, playing with the dogs we met.  As we walk through the woods, she loves going up a little ways all the side trails we pass.  It's like she's a ranger, make sure all the pathways are safe for travel.  More likely, she's looking for new people to meet, new dogs to sniff and play with, and maybe a bird or two to chase.

Practising "Sit" and "Wait" on the trail.  We've been trying to do some of our basic obedience in places other than class and at home.

"Hello Boston Terrier, IT'S ON!!!"

Getting owned by boston terrier that's about 1/3 her size.  Her move is always to get on her back and kick and bit legs.  Pretty adorable!

On the trail on the way back to car.  Always waiting for you guys to catch up!

Hurry up Mum, your so SLOW!

So beautiful and sunny!

Posing for the camera!

Stalk the ducks.  The ducks always think Sadie is going to feed them.  Not the smartest ducks!    

After a hard days run, sleeping it off with her favourite stuffed goose.  It's like her baby!

A long awaited walk!

So today we went for a walk.  No big deal right?  Well normally it's not, but it's the first time i've been out of the house since Wednesday when I had surgery.  Not a big, crazy surgery.  Just a must needed minor one.  I don't react well to the general anthestic so I spent the last few days feeling wiped out and useless at home.  I promised myself I would get out of the house on Sunday morning to take Sadie for a walk.  Here are a few pictures (mostly full of fail!) of our walk!

 There are buds on some of the trees!!  Spring is coming at last.  I get so depressed at the end of winter.  All I want are flowers and green.
 Sadie at the head of the trail, waiting for us to catch up.  She always roams ahead and then stops to make sure we are catching up.
 Curly tongue captured!
 Sitting, but squirming for the camera!

So I had to work today but luckily I was off by 3pm which meant it was still light enough to get to the park after work.  It's not sunny, but not raining either so I got to take the camera.  It was a great trip, as usual.  We met a few awesome dogs, a giant mastiff and a giant great dane.  Both beautiful and gentle.  Sadie wasn't sure what to think of those mini horses!  She also ran into Oscar (a german shepard) who likes to play but always gets a little rough, and Emma and Buddy, two adorable mutts that are older but tolerant of Sadie's rambunctious puppy behaviour.

 This way is up?
 Hurry up guys!!!!  Your too slow!!

 Photo taking is absolutely hilarious!
