Go4aWalk? day #133 . . .

day #133 complete . . . an hour and a half long walk today to the pet store via a busy street and time of day to add a bit more challenge to Jake’s walk.  Jake was proud that he was able to walk calmly by the kitten infested pet store . . . 4 times! 😀

our sessions,

with a longing in their voice,

our clients share stories about the endearing things their pets do.

we recognize that these memories are often the most precious to them . . .

. . . like Deb and her story of how Chloe, the 7 pound female Yorkie, thwarts Harley’s attempts at eating any of her food.

Harley, dejected, sits patiently awaiting the few measly crumbs that may fall his way.

“we make

our client’s wishes

come true…

mostly.”™ 😉

Sam asks, “what do you mean by ‘mostly?'”

well Sam, we will only do what your pet is comfortable with.

Go4aWalk? day #132 . . .

day #132 complete . . . two walks today. 🙂  this morning James walked Jake for about 35 minutes:  there were city of Calgary road crews out today fixing a winter’s worth of potholes and bumps.  Jake found it fascinating so we watched them for a few minutes.  looking towards the mountains the snow is melting quickly.  it looked like it might be raining at lower elevations.

then I took Jake out for an hour long walk.  we went into a gully and I let him take in all the smells.  there was a strong scent of fresh buds and the promise of new growth lingering in the air.  the sticky, sappy stuff clung to Jake’s furry paws on our way back.

. . . the promise of new growth is one of
