CP Dog Park Visit

Ferguson's official "membership ID" tag came in the mail, so we are now free to use the normally deserted dog park whenever we'd like! This afternoon, just as I suspected, no one was there, so we were free to use the park in peace. Ferguson had quite a nice time; I love to watch him run.



(if the link doesn't work, you can also view the video here: http://youtu.be/nkFehXACYtA ).

In the above video, he'd already run somewhat before I remembered I had my Ipod. Next time I'll try to get his first initial sprint. A few other photos we took while visiting:






As I mentioned before, I'm hoping that more frequent trips to a large open running space will help him cope along with behavioral modification to tackling his SA. He is certainly dead tired at the moment, passed out in the corner on his favorite yoga mat. It was overall a fun time.

Speaking of which, that blue squeaky ball is Ferguson's current favorite thing and has been for a few weeks. It is Kong brand, and have a few other shapes made of the same material...perhaps I'll consider getting him some for Xmas so we can keep one in the car, and one for the yard at home.

@Jen: I was looking up several greyhounds that I know and know of, and thought you might have mentioned her original racing name in your early posts...and I was right ;).

Yes, the dog park is a nice size. It will be our new pit stop during long walks :). Have I mentioned how much I love how no one is ever there? lol.

One of the things I love about Ferguson is that "not a care in the world" run and play that he has. He just loves to be out doing his thing for the fun of it :o)
