Walking with Ojo - my life is not fair

My friends, I don't think you realize how much my life has changed since this silly black Dog came to live with us.

One thing is that we almost never get to go to Beach anymore. This is because Ojo is "crazy monkey", which means that she climbs the "keep off the cliff face" cliff to chase birds (at Dallas Road Beach), or crazy-leaps up the walls that are as high as my person to run around in people's yards (at Willows Beach and Cadboro Bay Beach).

She does not listen to OjoCome very well yet when she is being a crazy monkey. So no beach for me, unless my person is having a day where she has a lot of the thing called "patience".

This is not fair.

Instead we have been doing many Walks in the Forest and climbing the mountain. Don't get me wrong - I love the Forest. And my person tries to make it interesting for me by taking different trails each day while she and the black one practise "OjoCome".

So at least I do get to go on nice Walks with my person. We hang out together and enjoy the scenery and smells. She gives me pets. I brush her leg as I trot past and give her my big smiles to tell her I am very happy to be here with her (even if we're not at Beach). Sometimes I have a little run. I do lots of sniffing.

I stay close to my person because that is what a Good Dog does.

But this is all we see of Ojo on our Walks.

Or this...

And lots of this... (Can you see her?)

I just stay close to my person and watch. Ojo is a too much of a crazy Dog for me.

Maybe one day we will get to go to Beach again... Sigh.

DARN this is really not quite fair. Maybe Ojo needs a BRICK tied to the end of his walkin/RACING string to slow him down.. OR NOT.

Dear Cobi,

I was adopted into a family with a crazy dog, so I know I don't get to do everything I want because of her. But I do love her, so I adjust. Maybe for a treat your Lady could take you to the beach alone. Phod

Oh my Cobi let's hope that with time and patience (my peeps lacks that) you can go to the beach again. I too was a naughty monkey and peeps said our walks were hell. Pfff she tell stories I say. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Beautiful walks. Maybe some buddy needs to stay on a very long string at the beach
