Friday was Earth Day. It also happened to be Good Friday and the first day of a long weekend. In celebration, I got together with my pal Honey the Cock-a-poo and went with the humans for a walk in the Assiniboine Forest.
The weather was wonderful, just slightly on the cool side. Although rain did threaten, it stayed away for our walk. Some of the trails were still quite muddy and some were even under water, but we mostly stuck to the main trails which were pretty dry.
It was surprising just how few dogs and people were out, this area is usually quite popular for walking and biking. Because there were so few people the humans decided to let Honey and I run off leash. Coincidentally enough, the few other dogs we met up with were all off leash as well.
Along our walk we saw a couple of ducks and we could hear a chorus of frogs. Sadly, no deer this time.
By the time we got back home, Honey was in need of a bath. The mud just loves clinging to her curly fur. Me, I was clean and dry. Any mud that had gotten on me had already dried and brushed off.
