Being Outside

 Well, Cora had a fantastic day, and I enjoyed it myself! 

I had to make a long drive down near the city so she was going to be in her crate for a few hours. I wanted to get her out for some exercise before I left, so I went over to one of the neighborhoods and we went for a nice walk. I can't take her too far yet, but we went for about 20 minutes. The temperature was perfect, and she was a very good little partner! 

I put her in her crate and headed out for my appointment. As I expected traffic was pretty bad. On the way home a 40 minute drive took and hour and a half! 

When I got home Cora was just hanging out and waiting. She was very happy to see me, but not in a panic at all! I took her out, gave her some lunch, had some myself, and then we got in the car, picked up Lilly, and drove up to the dam for a walk along the river. It was beautiful up there! Cora loved all the smells and sights.

 We walked about 20 minutes again and then loaded up to head to Aberdeen, so that I could meet Nina. She and Lilly were going to go up to the barn and do the feeding and the stalls. I have yet to go up there, since the owner has a some really restrictive rules. 

I came home and got out the mixer to make the cookies that I told Brendan I would make. He and Caitie went out to Kilgore Falls to hike and enjoy the day off. I am so glad that they are able to take full advantage of this great summer weather! It is going to start cooling off soon. 

I want to try to get Cora onto a short trail every couple of days so that she becomes accustomed to hiking and trail walking. She is really full of energy!

Tonight I am going to do some more work with pictures. There is so much to do!
