We tacked up and went out for a hack, through the owl woods, across the road, did some canter work in the big field in the park. He felt pretty good on both leads today and he was just cheerful as all getout. What a treat he is!
As we were trotting through the woods across the lake from the beach, we came upon an older couple with a loose white german shepherd. He came bounding up in an interested but friendly manner and gave his mom and dad apoplectic fits while Austin merely looked around for the other 30 hounds, never missing a step. They gathered up their dog and apologized profusely while I assured them there was no problem and we carried on with our trot around the lake. We did some more canter work in the field back on the 3G side of the road, then walked home. Nice day.
