A DOG AT GREEN SPRING GARDENS


We started our walk taking the path down to the two ponds, and then walked up the hill along another path through woods.  It takes us to a flat area where you usually find a lot of other walkers making their way around a large green.  There were only a few today, some with dogs.  It was a bit chilly but we did notice a Dad playing football with his three boys.  A good family activity in this kind of weather.

After a while we usually find a bench to sit on, not only for a few minutes rest but for the enjoyment of seeing what is going on.  Today we saw a lady with this very big dog.  A Bull Mastiff? 
We watched it suddenly sit on the path and by the look of it, wasn't going anywhere, deciding to rest.  Not budging from this spot for several minutes.  The lady handled the situation well, and no doubt she has been through this before.  

Look at that face?  Eventually the lady decided to change direction from the path to the grass and tugged gently.  Beauty got up and seemed happy to walk on the much softer surface towards the exit of the park, no doubt more pleasant to have soft ground under the feet instead of stone. Such a cute scene, and what a beautiful dog!  


 "Walkies!"  It's how I love to start my day, no, really!

Thanks for looking 
and enjoy the rest of the week.

  6. awwwww, so sweet, even though he is a "big" puppy!! i like to do the same, find a bench and people watch. chuck is able to walk for exercise, i sit on a bench and knit as he goes round and round at our local reservoir. they allow dogs and it seems everyone has one, they are so cute. too much work for me, but if anything ever happened to the hubs, i would probably get one for company!!

    the quotes are awesome!!
