Prime Land Dog Run

Its been another busy week as I am rewriting our cirriculum at school and I had a friends wedding to attend on Sunday. We did however manage to get out to enjoy this great sping weather with the girls on Saturday. Shin found a new dog run about 55km out of Tokyo. It was made up of three small dog runs and a pool area. Jazz and Dixie were the only two in the main run but the neighbouring dog run was playing host to a Newfoundland meet with 11 big black pups! I thought Dixie would freak out especially when all the neighbours were barking but Jazz and Dixie remained very quiet and stuck right by me when we were near the fence. We didn't use the pool area as you had to pay extra and Jazz and Dixie would not have stepped one foot in the water! We played around with the ball for a while until I cleverly threw it over the fence and down into some farmers garden! It was non retrievable much to Jazz's disappointment. After that the girls didn't run about much so I used the opportunity to get some close ups and posing shots. It is very easy to take pictures of Jazz but a little more tricky with the ever moving Dixie!

Hi Jazz and Dixie,

I love the close-up photos at the top. They are so cute!!

Cookie also managed to slip off a collar many times! That's why I used a Premier Collar before I switched to harnesses. But, Cinnamon has never slipped off a collar, maybe because she has a smaller neck. Also, Cookie has wiggled off a harness many times. At one of such incidents, when I was talking with my neighbour, who we'd met by chance, at a beach, somebody at a distance yelled "Who's dog is that, running toward the road?" It was Cookie, and I noticed that an empty harness with a lead attached was left by my feet!

I use diced sausages as treat at agility; cheap ones, because gourmet sausages have too strong smells. At first I used dog treat available from supermarkets, but they were not good. Cinnamon was not interested in it at all, because other people used treats with stronger smells, like sausages. Then, I tried diced cheese, but sausages seem better.

Hi Girls,

Great dog park! I wouldn't want to go in the water either, but the rest looks fun.

Wags & wiggles,

Wow! So many black fluffy doggies. Oooh, I wouldn't have been able to help it. I would have jumped straight right in without any second thoughts! Nu-uh!

Your girls are so lucky that you spend time with them on outings despite you having to "work like a dog"
