On Sunday, we went to Blue Hills Ski Area located in Canton, MA to do a little hiking and sightseeing but also to see how Abby would behave or in her case misbehave.
We did a lot of walking, but the day was quite conducive to being outdoors, a bit cloudy with a nice breeze and with an amazing view.
We all enjoyed our outing, but I think Abby enjoyed it the most. She met a lot of people, dogs, and scents that would bring the Beagle out of her. How did she do? She did well. But, we still need to continue working on behavior. Before I forget, she tried to eat a french fry she found on the floor. I said she tried because I was able to get it out of her mouth before she ate it.
Abby is a handful, but she is a really nice puppy. Just like our Alex, Abby is friendly to all dogs and people. One thing surprised me though, Abby greeted all the humans she met along our hiking path with all paws on terra firma. Yay! As you can see, Abby is improving.

That is great. Love taking my fur babies on outings. They are rather limited in the summer in Arizona. But we take them to Flagstaff so they can enjoy cool weather and grass.
Wow! Yes Summer in Arizona must be a challenge for doggies. Once, while traveling from San Diego, CA to Pensacola Fl for school, I drove and stopped in Arizona and omg it was like being in an oven. Take care:-)
That’s us. Thanks you too.
Congrats…your training efforts are paying off. What a fun outing with a sweet girl. 😉
Thanks. That is what I tell myself and Cynthia:-)
the last photo is tooooo good!!! and thanks for the idea to visit a ski area in summer, you’re right it can be a great place for long walks. maybe our dream about visiting mont blanc becomes true in summer or fall now, so we haven’t to pay the posh winter-prices :o)
Thanks:-) Yes, go out with your pet parents to explore your area.
Sounds like a great day. It is always nice when our pups pleasantly surprise us and behave when on an outing.
