I've been missing our two walks a day, but we've been making the most of the walks that we are getting. Since I get home in the middle of the afternoon, we don't always get to do a walk immediately when I get home because it's just a little too warm.
Occasionally, we've been getting in a quick neighborhood walk as soon as I get home and Barley's made some new friends.
There's a house in our neighborhood with many, many kittens. Although this stresses me out (I counted 14 cats/kittens in the yard one day!), it's no secret that I've had kitten fever this summer, so I've been enjoying watching the kittens. There are three brave little ones that I refer to as Barley's kittens. Most of the kittens run when they see us walking down the sidewalk, but these three stay put and Barley loves them. She wags her tail and leans down to sniff them and prances from one to the next. It's adorable.
We finally had a nice evening after agility class and we got to visit Barley's deer friends after school.
|Hello, young prince!|
|Barley loved watching the little spotted fawns play.|
|These two little fawns were very entertaining for us.|
I did feel a little guilty when I realized that I had been giving Barley venison lung puffs as rewards for sitting calmly for her pictures.
We've also worked in several walks at the State Park since last Friday. Now that everyone's back at school, the park is relatively empty--which is the way we like it! Since there were few people, we got to stroll along the marina and enjoy the boats.
We've done pretty well with keeping up with our mileage goals. Yesterday was a little warm, so we had a shorter walk, but the other days we exceeded our goals. We logged 24.41 miles last week.
Soth has been spending the week playing with boxes and ribbons. He seems to have taken on the clinginess this week.

Hope everyone else has had enjoyable time staying fit with your pets, too!
