Happy 4th of July! In the North Bend area, this has been an exceptionally loud one...even days leading up. That has been a bit of a bummer, but hopefully after tonight it will slow down a bit.
The morning started with a fabulous little dog walk in Bellevue.
Nim and I decided to join our friends for the Áegis of Bellevue Four on the 4th Dog Jog & Walk. This walk benefits the Seattle Humane. The weather was overcast and cool, which was an added bonus to the nice start of the day.
We got there early because I was a last minute registration. I think this was a good thing too as Nim definitely needed more time to get used to the noise and amount of people. We got a cute shirt with the registration as well. This is a much bigger and boisterous walk compared to the Old Dog Haven Walk for Old Dogs which we will be participating on July 17th.
We had a great time walking with our friends: Mickie and Charlie. Mickie you might remember as a rescue dog my friend Cindy got a couple of years ago. Charlie is a house guest with Mickie and fell right in with Nim as if they knew each other their entire lives.
Charlie is pretty darn cute. He only got tangled up in Nim's legs once during the walk which I considered a success given Nim's general lack of awareness of his body, Nim's size in comparison, and the amount of dogs we were walking with.
July is looking to be a full and fun month! Today's walk was a great start.
