Out with the Dogs

Today we all headed down to LA for a meet up with other tiny dogs. Something that had never occurred to me until today is, the cement gets HOT on their little feet. Patrick stepped out on the walkway and was reluctant to go. Within 15 seconds was whining uncontrollably. As soon as we picked him up he stopped. I reached down and touched the walk way and it burned MY hand. I felt so bad! After that snafu (and lesson learned) we climbed into the car to head to the dog park.

Despite the heat it went really well. There was shade and fresh water for people and dogs available. The dogs enjoyed themselves and socialized very well. Jackson is painfully shy so we are really working on getting him more comfortable in different situations. Patrick got a new harness - he is so tiny it is hard to find stuff to fit him. I enjoy being able to take my boys out to play with same sized dogs! I look forward to the next one.
