Wagon Ride!

My raiser took my on my very first wagon ride recently, complete with an "up close sniffing" with her horse - that's right, I got to MEET the horse!!
"Patches" was very friendly and I really enjoyed meeting her; I'm thinking I may ask fur my very own horse when my birthday roles around!
The wagon ride was soo fun, and my raiser did an amazing job at both driving AND controlling me... with no help from others!
It was a great experience, and now I can brag about it to the other guide dog puppies :)

I want to apologize for not visiting any of you guys recently, I've been super busy lately and I hope that my raiser & I's schedule settles down some, but knowing her busy life... that will never happen!
So even if I'm not commenting on or visiting your blog, I do love you guys and hope to be reading about some of your adventures soon!

Enjoy the pictures below,


Mommy, can I sniff it???

Let me touch it...

She smells like a horse...

*Please note that Patches has been introduced to "new" dogs many a times, and doesn't mind them at all (she's a petting zoo horse) - so this is/was old news to her and we were not worried  or unsure (at anytime) that Brandon may "spook" or "scare" her.

OMD, she's the size of King Kong!

FINALLY, my wagon ride :)

How fun! I'll admit, I've been wanting to train one of my Friesians to drive - mainly because I want to go around the neighborhood with one of the boys!

I was in a parade with horses a couple of times, and they ride around our town when it's nice out. I am pretty sure if I could lose this darned leash that I could catch one!

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Wooohoooo.... that sounds exciting. Now sure I would be so calm with that big horse, but Patches looks like a good one. Have fun.

pawhugs, Max

We have horses close to our new house. We haven't been over to visit yet. I wonder what they will think of us...and us of them.

Brandon, You are one lucky puppy! I love horses and so wish I had the opportunity to expose my dogs to such a well rounded horse :)

P.S. I've had to sadly stop following your blog because my screen reader (I'm visually impaired) doesn't like cooperating with it for some strange reason. I hope to start re-following in the real near future.

There's nothing better than red wagons for kids to glorify the innocence of our youth. I don't think you can drive by a home with children that doesn't have a little red wagon in their yard somewhere.
