Half a dozen beautiful deer bounded across the road as we drove up...I would've been interested to see Alfie's response to them, but he was lying down on the floorboard like a good boy and never saw them.
Of course, even on a relaxing hike through the woods Alfie practices his job. We worked on loose-leash walking...
...finding a seat...
...here he's finding a trash can.
Spring flowers were everywhere.
These birds have a nice view from their nest!
Each blossom is like a work of art.
I admit, I didn't actually ask him to find this bench at first! On our last walk here (over a month ago) I had Alfie find me this seat. When we went back yesterday, he remembered exactly where it was and eagerly wanted to take me there again. I had him "steady" first and then told him that yes, he could "find the seat."
Ha ha, I call this picture "treat bag cam"!
Alfie found the narrowest place to cross, sat politely...and didn't want to budge! I had to step over first (not even a big step, as you can see!) and encourage him across, silly boy! And this, out of a dog who loves water. Go figure!
Good walk, buddy!
