A good day in the UK!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Today has been a pretty good day. The weather started off rainy and windy and miserable, but then the sun came out and Barney was in the garden most of the afternoon chewing a bone. I didn’t get a picture of this but when we walk out to the orchard I took some photos there.
As you can see he has his ruff wear harness on, it doesn’t seem to bother him at all and it is there in case we need it.
He was playing with sticks and his best game is “chase the leaves in the wind”. As it autumn now most of the leaves have already come off the trees so it’s up to us, either have to kick them in the air or throw them or my husband uses his walking stick! Barney waits in real anticipation for the leaves and then runs and jumps (yes jumps) for them. This really is good to watch but worries me silly in case he hurts himself, so far so good. He is enjoying himself and that’s what it’s all about.
It will be three weeks since the operation tomorrow I still sometimes wonder if we have down the right thing but today I know we definitely have, see what tomorrow brings……

    Hooray Barney!

    Looks like you had some fun outside. I love to play outside too! I don’t much chase leaves, but I love to chase squirrels. I have never caught one, though…I’m kinda glad cause I’m not sure I would know what to do with it if I did, but don’t tell the other dogs.

    You did the right thing! Like our vet said if you get even a month of quality time with your companion it is worth it! They surprise us day after day with the things they can do and will do. Let Barney be a dog as much as it scares you! Enjoy every day with Barney! He looks very handsome in his vest!!!
