somewhere different

Life has been pretty quiet around here as of late. We have a pleasant little routine of morning romps in the park and afternoon training sessions. On Saturday mornings, all of us go and we go "somewhere different" than normal.

Today it was the Tempe Reserve. The kid's soccer was on and we went and had a look.

Gracie used to be scared of noisy little children, but this time, she didn't mind them at all.

After a while, we were off to the dog's part of the park and played ball and ran around a lot. I love playing ball - I get it and bring it back...over and over and over.

I never take my eye off the ball - never.
I never let Gracie get the ball...ever.

On the way home, Neil stopped at the shops and we had to wait in the car. Sooo boring.

Where is he?

Finally, he came back and we went home and settled down with some yummy bones that we chewed all afternoon. Quite a good day.


  1. You guys should have gotten involved in that soccer game! You could have showed those kids how the game is REALLY played!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  2. Gosh if our pinkies went to visit my nonna we could meet up at Tempe Reserve. It's not that far from her house.


  3. You are so sweet both!
    Lots of love

  4. That sounds like a perfect day! I like the idea of retrieving a ball when thrown; however, I get distracted by squirrels and forget to return the ball to mama!! You and Gracie are such pretty girls!!

  5. Looks like you had a good day at the athletic park. Little kids can be scary with their loud screams and jumping around, so you did real good! Sorry we haven't been by in a while. We'll try to be better. Miss seeing your progress with training and of course the pups growth!! Almost all grown up.
