Today was another chance for Gracie and Henri to be off leash and to run free with their friend Brie! Not as good as the last trip! We started walking down the beach the opposite direction that we did last time. This time we had the ocean on one side and the promenade on the other. Here’s how it started…
They all started out playing together and having fun!
Then Gracie decided to set off on her own.
At first I wasn’t worried since she returned the last time but now she was getting close to the promenade and closer to the road! I started after her and thought I’d be able to catch her because she stopped to take care of business but by the time I caught up she was off again and I had to stop to clean up her business. Then I saw a couple coming up the beach and she changed directions and headed straight for them! I wasn’t worried too much because Gracie is nothing but a kissy monster and fortunately they were dog lovers and started playing with her. I yelled for them to grab her harness but they didn’t hear! By the time I caught up she was running circles around this couple then took off again in the direction of my friend Bobbi who was finally able to get ahold of her harness and hold her for me. She had a retractable leash for her dog so we put that on Gracie and her running far days were over!
Henri on the other hand stayed close to us and if called came running back. Henri and Brie were having a great time!
Gracie could only run after Henri from a distance!
I think I need to work with her a little bit more!
