Haddie went on vacation with us for a three day weekend! Our first time traveling with her for an overnight stay away from home.
I found a small patch of gravel next to the Alley garbage cans where she did all of her business. It was so convenient considering the only other patch of non-cement for Haddie was around the corner and down the street to the Front Street Park. I know the pups have to be able to do their business on any surface, and Haddie has done her business on cement before, but I just don't think it is very polite for others - especially in the heat, and this Alley is more of a walk-through to get from one section of town to the other. I was so happy to find this tiny patch of gravel so close. It was certainly handy.
That is where we met Velvet - a six month old Puppy in Training with Guide Dogs of America. She was adorable and it was so fun to bump into them and watch how each of us made our dogs hold a Sit while we talked. Aww, great puppies!! Go Velvet!!
Haddie enjoyed her experience in a new town. She was her typical self, just a tad slower due to the heat. She loved the Air Conditioned buildings of shops, restaurants, and our home away from home. And - she LOVED one other thing that we treated her to, but I will save that for the next post.
This year she will be old enough to enjoy our Winter Vacation at this same place. Another extreme weather condition for her to experience - lots of cold and snow.
