I took this picture while Dieter and Alex were asleep, but the flash woke up Dieter. Alex is so used to it that she can sleep right through it. This 4th of July was uneventful and enjoyable. Uneventful because nothing out of the ordinary happened, and enjoyable because even though we were able to hear the fireworks from Ft. Meade, Alex and Dieter only barked once and after that they went to their beds to sleep.
Bella and Milo, from left to right, were not as cooperative for this photo shoot as Dieter and Alex were, therefore I had to put a collar and leash on Milo. Because the temperature will be pretty high this weekend, we’ll take Bella and Milo for some mini-walks rather than 2 long walks. Make sure that you adjust your walks based on your dog’s age, activity level, weight, and of course, weather. Happy 4th of July weekend to all pet parents and their canine companions.
