On a foggy weekend we went to the park. Pluto was the most happy about it.

On a foggy weekend with Pluto

Of course there was a lot of snow, it was cold and the sun was nowhere in sight. But, it was fun. No matter what the conditions are you cannot be gloomy when you have a dog that enjoys everything around him. A dog is a bundle of joy.

I can honestly say we need all the joy and happiness we can get.

It was also a good opportunity to take photos. I really do miss our one day trips to different places. They were the best mini vacation we’ve had and we always managed to take beautiful pictures.

There weren’t many attractions (now that the holidays are over) and not many people in the park (because of the weather). It was pretty quiet.

But that meant more space for us to play around with Pluto. We meet other people that owned a labrador, but one just took our breath away. It was a 3 year old white labrador. He was beautiful, very friendly and HUGE!

Of course, our Pluto is the most beautiful labrador in the world just by being ours, but there are certain dogs that just wow you. One of those specimes is the white labrador named Khan. Besides its beautiful coat and impressive stature, he was really smart.  His owner showed us aa few tricks, one involving a simple command “Police”.

Basically, we are not allowed to walk the dogs without a leash in the park. There are patrols in all the parks that will give you a ticket if your dog is not on a leash. So, this guy has come up with a new command: his dog will run away (with him) whenever he hears the word “Police”. That’s pretty ingenious.

I know we should all follow the rules, but it’s not fair considering a lot of people with small dogs get away with it. Just because a dog is of a bigger size, that doesn’t mean it’s aggressive. In fact, in our neighbourhood the most aggressive dogs are the smaller ones.

Anyway, I hope Pluto will grow up as big as Khan and be as smart. I have found a role model for him. Until then, we shall stick to our ball games.

Here's the ball! Pluto

So, a lot of things can happen on a foggy weekend, you just have to keep an open mind even when the weather is bad.
