This was the first year we were not home. Instead we went to Boston to visit family and did a little sightseeing while there. As you can see, Alex could care less about the ducks around her.
It was funny to see Alex totally uninterested in all the real ducks around her, but once she saw these “fake” ducks she couldn’t help herself and she had to go and meet them. As you can see, she is meeting them the polite way, the doggie way. How? By sniffing the tush.
Alex even posed with them. She was such a good girl. By the way, because it was so cold that day, we were out for about 20-30 minutes only. We parked very close so we went back to the car and headed to get some food.
We could take Alex pretty much anywhere dogs are allowed because she is used to so many things, including horses. We saw a policeman on a horse, but I was hesitant about asking him for a picture so we kept walking. When Alex was a puppy I took her everywhere so that as an adult dog she would be comfortable in different situations and areas. Belated happy new year 2015!

I think the statues look friendlier than the real ones, that’s why Alex was probably more interested in them:)
Lol. You comedian.
The best way to teach a dog is to expose them to different environments early on. Well done.
Thanks, and you are right.
What about those huge geese?
It’s so ‘pawsome’ that Alex is so well behaved! Sam rushed up to a statute recently with his hackles up (and me laughing my head off at him). No sooner had he realized it wasn’t anything he needed to worry about, he was sniffing pee-mail. 🙂
Lol. Yes, for the most part, Alex is very well behaved. Alex, years ago, still wanted to chase squirrels, but as time went by she didn’t care for them anymore.
OH what a funny story! I agree – fake ducks would make me say, “Hmmmm”, too. I’d also have to check them out. 🙂
You too? I am just glad that Alex always approach other beings by sniffing their butts. I know that is not polite, for us humans, but it is in the canine world.
Happy New Year for 2015 to you too, Nice to know you had a good time away
We did. Thanks:-)
Great shots of your two together. I’ve actually walked through those same paths with Eko and have a photo of him with the ducks. (Not the real ones, those guys scrammed)
