Sunny Saturday (Original Post 8/8/10)

We had a really nice day today.  First we went to watch a frisbee tournament.  We met lots of new doggy friends and a few new human friends.  I must make one correction to yesterday’s post:  apparently Jonah is still sometimes rude when meeting new men.  He growled at two people who came at him to pet him.  Also, he still hates the Grimson brothers.  Usually he warms up to our friends, but not those two.  I have no idea why.  Anyway, we practiced tricks between points, sat in the shade and had a generally marvelous time.

Next we went to the Blue Hills for a hike.  It was lots of fun, the highlight (for Jonah, at least) was finding a mouse.  Before we knew it Jonah had a mouse in his mouth and was trotting down the trail.  He promptly dropped it but it looked like it’s little leg was broken.  After climbing on both of Dave’s shoes, we finally nudged it off the trail and it found its hole.  Poor thing.

On our way home we stopped and I got an agility book, and then we went to Petco to pick up some bones and a new brush.  Jonah was a total pro–he walked straight in (even excitedly), sniffed around and was perky the whole time with no signs of nervousness.  Good boy!
