Duke finally had his last round of shots and is ready to get out of the house. He is so full of energy, he needs lots of exercise beyond what the yard can offer. No matter how long the walk, he just never seems to tire. Brian took him for a run and that didn't even phase him. So, yesterday Emma and I took him out on the trail. We had been waiting for a break in the heat, and we held steady at 80 yesterday. Now, 80 at home, and 80 on the mountain do not feel the same at all. The mountain always feels hotter because of how the sun reflects right back up at you. It did the trick. Not too hot, but hot enough that it wore Duke out. We only did a 2 mile loop, and he drank water 4 times, even though he was unsure of his portable water bowl. Overall, he did well, and I can see him quickly becoming a good trail companion! We headed out of Borges Ranch so as to steer clear of Diablo property, where dogs are not allowed.
