It all started with business as usual. A Saturday morning Kassa and I did a short walk. Then after some chores we headed to the Greyhound Meet and Greet (at the 100 Oaks Pets Smart). I like to take Kassa to get his nails trimmed at the M&G's because the money goes back to the adoption group. We did a little ambassadorship. I think one couple was really interested in Kassa (but he's mine I say .. Mine! :) ). There were a lot of dogs there and it took some time to get to the trimming. Next we headed out to grab some groceries and some dogie treats. I got Kassa some deer antler. It is supposed to be healthier than raw hide chews and it doesn't splinter like bones do. The only problem is that he doesn't like it as much as the chews so I will have to alternate if I want his teeth to be really clean. The next stop for me was supposed to be Judo. Alas, I was running 20min behind so no Judo for me. It was a beautiful day so Kassa and I decided to make the best of it and head to the ball park. Small humanoids had invaded! The nerve of using a ball park for Baseball! I decided to go up the road to the dog park. After all I have never actually seen a dog there. There must have been 15 dogs in that park. This nice weather may be the end of me. The adoption group warns against taking the hounds to dog parks so I bit my upper lip and we headed on to the Model air plane fields at Cane Ridge Park. Kassa and I watched the planes for about 30min. They had 3 different planes in the air while we were there and there were some pretty nifty stunts going on. We also got to do some ambassadorship for the greyhound cause. I have to figure out the best approach for handling kids who want to pet my boy. He is fine with kids, but some kids don't have a lot of experience and pet him hard or get near his eyes. In the end there was no game of fetch but we still got to spend a ton of time together. My wife, Kassa and I headed to Edwin Warner park on Sunday. We took the Harpeth Woods Trail which is a 2 1/2 mile hike. Kassa was really excited and by the end quite tired. I like this trail because it is an actual hike in the woods with a lot of rocks and hills rather than a stroll through a grassy meadow. It was a bit muddy in places but over all quite pleasant. I was really pleased with with the people on the trails that had dogs. Some were off lead but they had excellent recall. They usually put them on lead to pass us and those dogs that didn't gave us plenty of room. Kassa was a really good boy with all the dogs both big and small. I think his socialization is progressing quite well.
