Off-Leash, On The Canal
I've found a great exercise spot for Olga -- the Grand Union Canal.
It's not new to us. I've taken her there many times. But only lately have I been letting her off-leash, which she loves, and she's been great. She plays with sticks and chases ducks and eats grass and rolls around and runs, runs, runs. And she happily comes back when I call her.
What a relief. I love setting her free. She has a lot more fun that way, and so do I.
She has a very good sense of what to do and not to do, and she plays well with the other dogs we encounter. Not to mention people -- she doesn't chase bicyclists or small children.
So while she zippers up and down the towpath, I can take pictures!
But here's the best thing about the canal, at least from Olga's point of view...
