This week we've been mostly just walking out at Thousand Acres. Yesterday morning it was raining off and on but the sun came out and there was a brilliant rainbow off in the distance. It was fading fast and I was only able to capture a bit of it.
The wild flowers are blooming like crazy. It's so fun to find them and pose the dogs with them.
The lupines are one of my most favorite flowers!
Phoenix played in the water and fetched the stick a bunch of times! She's getting so much better about being in water! The pond is now so low that she can pretty much touch the bottom across the whole thing! Even though the pond being low is sort of a bummer, I think it's good because Phoenix is getting a lot more confident.
A bunch of dogs showed up and there were no people in sight. I'm assuming it was one of the dog walkers with a huge pack (there were 8 or 9 dogs) because I could hear someone whistling. A couple of the dogs stole Phoenix's stick but she got it back eventually.
Zoe went into the water a little bit but she didn't feel like fetching sticks.
After they were done playing in the water both dogs had a serious case of zoomies and ran around for quite a while. It was so funny!
This week we did 20.85 miles and we still have today and tomorrow left! Today will be another Thousand Acre walk and then tomorrow is my most favorite event in Portland. It's Doggie Dash! I'm so excited. All of the proceeds from the event go to the humane society where I rescued both of the girls so it's definitely a worthy cause. Tomorrow I'm going to post a couple of throwback pictures from the last time we went and then I will have the full details from our day on Monday.
Also, I joined a "30 miles in 30 days" challenge on the app that tracks our walks and I have less than 10 miles left to complete it. That's pretty awesome. We are doing really great!
I hope you all have an amazing weekend!
