warm fall days

The weather has been sunny and beautiful the last few days, and weather like that calls for nice long walks. So out the back door we go and head for the trail.

My walks consist of running full speed and then stopping to smell the delightful aroma of nature.

P.A. always keeps his eyes open for golf balls, and I'm right beside him making sure that whatever he picks up isn't food to eat.

Running, stopping, sniffing. Over and over and over. Running, stopping, sniffing. But the best thing happens at the end of the walk when we stop in the back yard and my dad takes off my leash.
FREEDOM! I run as fast as I can in circles before making a dart for the back door. Sometimes I get side-tracked and head for the rabbit under the deck, but I'm usually pretty focused on getting inside the house.

After expending all of that energy, I need a treat to revive me.

You are speedy, Miss Petra. I like to run in circles too, but when I do it I also tuck my butt under so I look super crazy. Apparently this butt-tucking is a Labrador trait.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

What a spectacular display of zoomies! Enjoy your warm Autumn while it lasts :-)


Peanut said...

Oh man you can run. We could hardly see you since you are going so fast.

Moco said...

P.A. is lucky to keep up with you. It is a good thing that you have a long leash or else you would be doing the whiplash dance. You are quite speedy on that final run.

I think little Petra has a case of the BT zoommies!!

Lady Kaos said...

Holy cow! Only 1 treat to revive you? After running so fast I think you need about 4 or 5!

Hi, Petra!
I got tired just looking at you in the video!
I hope you got lots of treats!
Kisses and hugs

You are my hero, Petra. Me needs to learn how to run and sniff, run and sniff. Me just knows how to run.

I wish I could come and run in your backyard with you. I only have off leash at the doggy park and that place scares the willies out of me.
Love, hugs, bellyrubs, smoochies

Your walks are so fun, Petra! I wish I could run as fast as you when I go on my walks...but my Mom is very sluggish and won't keep up! *sigh* Any tricks on getting a human to walk faster? hehe!
