I just finished my bath and had to reflect on my morning. Where do I start....I guess at the beginning.  

This moring I thought I would walk Tonee our puppy of 4months that is a puggle (beagle mixed with pug)at the local park. We packed up with treats (to coax her with)and leash and we (my husband and I) loaded up and headed to the park to hit the trails.

When we got in sight of the park, Tonee got excited and was ready to jump out of the truck. She jumped from front to back with excitement almost like she was shouting “let me out, let me out“. But what I did not know was she was not jumping because of excitement more because she had to “go“. She jumped and jumped and started to whimper but we just did not get message. Tonee decided since we were not paying attention that she would take control of the situation. She went to the back of the truck, squated and did number 2. We thought something was wierd when she stopped jumping. Well, we did not have to wonder for too long because our noses revealed what she was really up to. Right when we were pulling up to the park. Oh man, we got to clean poop in in the truck. I immediately volunteered to take Tonee from the truck while my husband cleaned.  

Tonee was ready as soon as her feet hit the ground. Her tail was wagging and her happy face was on and she was ready. Now the real fun starts.  

My husband joins us after he finishes cleaning and we are off walking so I thought. Tonee wants to run as soon as she spots other people on the trail. I decicded to run with her. Note...I am not a runner. I try and keep up with Tonee and we are off running down the trail with my husband behind us. She runs until she spots something on the trail that she has to investigate. Once she is satisfied she is off again.  

As we meet joggers and walkers along the way, Tonee is working her magic by wagging her tail and trying to get over to them to say “hi“. Once she gets her dose of attention (being rubbed by passersby)she is ready again. Off we go. I am now working up a sweat and looking back at my husband trying to get him to take over but he is not cooperating.  

We are now in view of the parking space and Tonee spots the doggee fountain. We are now in full gallop. I am running with her because I am trying to tire her out so she will be more relaxed when we make it back home. We make it to the fountain and I am about to pass out. Not Tonee, she is wagging her tail and looking up at me waiting on me to hit the button for the water to sprout out.

As I am standing there waiting on my husband of course because we ran to the fountain; I am reminded of something Ceasar The Dog Whisperer has said on one of his shows “you don’t get the dog you want but the dog you need“. I looked at Tonee and wondered if she is the dog I needed. I was out in the park to walk her (she ended up running then walking me) and I got the excerise that I would not have gotten if it was just my husband and I so I got what I needed for the day.  

Thanks to Tonee I not only walked but I ran part of the 3 mile trail something I would not have normally done.

Love it
