In between the showing and coursing, a dog just has to go have a personal day. A day to kick back, and be a dog. Well, ok, that is pretty much everyday but show and coursing days! Cathy and I decided to take our kids, 5 whippets and a great dane out to Ft Loudon park to let the dogs run and the kids have a field trip. It is a historic revolutionary war site where they have built a replica of the actual fort that was there in 1794. There is a museum and wonderful trails!!!
The dogs had a great time. They ran through the woods and then we let them run free outside the fort, on the lakeside. They were literally smiling the whole time. Dot and Riley were the only two that really opened up and ran and boy did they!!
