365/26 Trixie thinks we walk too slowly.

It is so warm today, we decided to take Trixie for a walk around a frozen pond nearby.  Frozen pond, warm day, such a winning combination.  Notice the taut leash.  Notice the no-pull harness.  Notice the alert expression.  That is how every walk with Trixie looks.  She is tiny, but fast, strong, and alert.  She flushed several birds and one rabbit out of the reeds surrounding the pond.  I think that qualifies as a good day for a dog.  Great would be being allowed off the leash to chase the rabbit, but that did not happen.

Does that harness work well for you? We bought a Gentle Leader and it works really well, but the dog really dislikes it. I feel like she is saying "this is so embarrassing" But she is strong and will take the kids down without it on.

Your dog is beautiful by the way.

Trixie is adorable! Our vet recommended these for our dog, it sure helps taking the presser out of their neck.
