Our Walk Along the Canal with Chelsea Was Special This Morning – A Pair of Mallard Ducks Swam By – Chelsea Chose to Keep Her Distance – No Duck Was Going to Drag Her into the Water –

Mallards in Canal

Everyday, twice a day, we walk Chelsea, our pet Bichon Frise, for approximately thirty minutes each time. Some days we walk her beside this canal and back to our coach, or on other days we walk her along a sidewalk that offers a wide stretch of grass for her entertainment and utility. We think variety gives her maximum enjoyment. Today, as we strolled alongside the canal, she surprised us. She elected to watch these ducks from a safe distance from the water. But when we lived in our house, a couple of ducks went for a swim in our pool. Chelsea barked aggressively and chased them from one side of the pool to the other. Apparently she felt those ducks were trespassing. After all, she owned that pool. She must think the ducks own this canal. Ha ha!

    • Yes, animals are very smart, especially pets. They learn how to act like people and how to get what they want from us. Chelsea said “no thank you,” in dog language. I had offered to take her outside for a bathroom break. Instead of hurrying to slip into her harness, she backed off and stared at me with those big, expressive eyes that told me to try again. She wanted her breakfast first, then outside. Where was my treat for understanding her? I guess just watching her enjoying her breakfast. Blessings to you, Patti. Thanks for stopping by.
