Girls Day

Daisy and I got to go out together today, just us. Tony had his teeth cleaned at the Vet's office and so we took the opportunity to do something that we can't do with him: be around other dogs! (Our new vet does non-anesthetic dental cleaning. They said Tony was wonderful to work with and he doesn't have stinky breath anymore.)

We met my new friend Emily at Green Lake Park for a walk. The lake is almost 3 miles around. We circled once with Emily, then Daisy decided she wanted to do it again. The sun finally decided to grace us with it's presence and the temp was pushing 65, bringing out all sorts of kids and dogs. The park is a really great place, big and spacious with lots of grass. They also rent paddle boats and sailboats by the hour and have concerts on the lake.

It's pretty rare anymore that Daisy gets to roam "free" on her long leash. When we are with Tony she is not as well behaved, so I have to keep her closer and under more control. I know she really wanted to run off leash, but you know beagles, she might not come back.
From the west side of the lake facing south, you can see downtown.
Looking east you can see the Cascades.
There are many mallard ducks with babies just hatched living at the lake. Daisy's not sure it's safe to be in the water.
We had a fun time. It was nice to hang out with just my girly.

Then we picked up Tony and tonight John and I are going to the Mariner's game with friends! Yay, friends!

  2. Hey Girlies,

    At Green Lake you are very close to my Grandma Natalie's old house. Grandpa Bill would know the address. Maybe you would like to do a drive by...viewing, of course.
