One Tuckered-Out Puppy

Didn't bring the camera - so no pic. But we have on our hands one very tired dog after an outing to the off-leash area at Shawnee Mission Lake. We were a little worried that she'd freak out and bolt. But thankfully Ginger checked in with us once in a while and then would become an orange and white blur, darting from dog to dog, and owner to owner. She didn't quite go swimming but waded in a bit which was helpful in cleaning off the mud she had accumulated the last couple of days. We'll definitely be going back.

Nice! My pup would be long gone if he were allowed off leash - glad Ginger had such a good time :)

It was nice! We really weren't sure what would happen. Before Ginger there was Josie (another Brittany) and she did bolt. It wasn't pretty.

The Brittany bolt curse is lifted! Yay!

That's so funny - there was a definite dividing line - in the water - labs! Everyone else was on dry land watching.
