We are still a bit nervous about the parvo outbreak here that has experts worrying because it is affecting vaccinated dogs who are well past the typical age of susceptibility. The White Dog Army's visits to the park have been restricted to minimize the potential risk, especially to our oldest members and those with existing health issues. Since Labor Day is a huge day for family celebrations that include the pups at our parks, we decided to stay away from them today.

Round 2 with Oso and Nuka (who refused to yield her spot) went MUCH smoother. Steve reported that the two White Dogs settled in like royalty on their cushions and watched the kingdom pass as they rode.
The Queen, White Dog, insisted on a solo tour. She stood and barked greetings to her subjects as Steve pedaled her up and through the neighborhood! WD shouted her blessing to those poor pups relegated to WALKING on the sidewalk as she drove by. And when she returned, she gracefully jumped from her carriage and pranced past the others to come into the office to tell me of her adventures.
YoYoMa decided he was too much a libertarian to be carted like on parade. Instead, he asked Steve for an old-fashioned trot on his leash about town. This allowed him to stop and sniff and enjoy the full sensory experience of our home base.
After, five exhausted ("I don't know why YOU are all so tired I did all of the work," said Steve) pups laid on the deck supervising the grilling of bratwurst and chicken sausages and anticipating the fine meal (apple pie AND juicy peach blueberry whipped cream parfaits) that the serving staff would serve them for dinner.
Hope you had a wonderful holiday.
