Spring...such a great time of the year, what with the days getting longer and the breezes balmier. Sometimes though it seems such a short season, leaping forward right into the heat of Summer. Don't get me wrong, Summer is pretty awesome in its own right. It's just that Spring is sooo good you don't want to miss it.
So what is my absolutely favorite thing to do with my dogs on a beautiful spring day. Nothing! Well actually, we are doing something. It’s just that to the untrained eye we appear to be doing nothing. The most wonderful thing to do with your pups is to lay down on the green grass under a big tree filled with green leaves. Laying on the cool earth next to them in perfect silence, listening to the wind rustling through the leaves and watching them move and sway against the blue sky. Sometimes the sound of a distant lawnmower breaks the silence, but you and dogs are in the zone. It is so captivating yet meditative. You just feel so connected and in tune with your dogs, and with the earth underneath you.
It’s hard to remember sometimes when we are all so busy to take the time for the simple pleasures such as this, but I assure you it is well worth it. It’s one of those simple pleasures that bring you right back to your childhood. So what's the 2nd best thing to do with your dog on a beautiful Spring day? Well, take them for a long walk that's what ;-) While you're out and about, don't forget to bring along The Fifth Paw attached to your leash. Nothin better than having your hands free from juggling full bags of dog-poop, and free from stinky pockets and pouches. Enjoy!
Many Happy Walks!
