I've started taking the kiddos to the park for their walks as I was really getting tired of fending off all the roaming dogs in our neighborhood...Grrrrr..We live outside the city limits, no leash laws and people have no regard for dogs, they just let them roam wherever....

When it was just Samson, I carried a walking cane and would use that, but it's a lot harder with 2, esp as Angel is a handful anyways...So off to the park we go...Have to keep them on lead, as there isn't a closed area I can let them run..Don't think people would like it if I let them run on the baseball diamond... :wink: There's a pond in the middle of the walking paths and of course that means birds, specificaly ducks, now with babies....Angel is determined that will get those birds, one way or another!!

So with leashes in hand, I managed to get a few pictures of my 2 enjoying their walk...

Samson says, it's time for a break Momma


Part of the park pond, you can see the ducks swimming around


Angel staring at the ducks


Here's what she was staring soo intently at...babies


Maybe if we get inthe water, they will come to us

Haylee chases the geese at our lake, keeps them from pooping on the dock.  the only problem is that they had their goslings last week and were pretty protective.  I had to keep her on her leash until they got out of site

They look like they're enjoying themselves! Angel is absolutely gorgeous and Samson is very thick!

What size gentle leader do you have for Angel? I got a large for Mia..

I bought the medium gentle leader for Odin he for months and it fits him great and has a huge left over amount so that he can grow into it... I think the large might be too big for her...?

Grrr... I'll have to call them quick and order a medium! On their list it said boxers were a large breed, which is why he ordered that size. But I definitely want the correct size before I start my classes! Not wasting money to only go out and buy another one!  :evil:

Just got a medium.. They were putting all of my stuff together when I called.. LOL
Yes... the Boxer is definately a MEDIUM sized dog... Boxers don't need large breed dog foods or large Gentle Leaders... especially if your boxer is still a puppy.  Odin does just fine with his medium, and he's got plenty of room to grow into it.

Great pics! It looks beautiful there!
I've found a really good headcollar for Daisy. It's called a dogmatic. It's available in leather, synthetic leather or nylon, plus it's available in loads of different sizes and colours too! Daisy has a pink one!

Yeah i bought a large the first time and boy was that a mistake. So i had to go back and get Zeus a medium (size 3 i believe). And now it fits perfect on him and he has room to grow into it if he needs to, but i had to buy Dante a large, medium was to small for him. Angel and Samson look great!

Well I'm glad you knew what size it was, cos I wouldn't have been able to tell you...I have had this one for a long time and have no clue what size it is, just know it works!!! I don't know why people persist in think that boxers are a large breed dog.

I didn't think they were large.. Large to me is Toby (90lbs) and anything under 65ish is medium, IMHO. And small.. lol thats anything that bites ankles..  :wink:

I bought a medium size 3 for Roxy and it was too big at first but I think she may have grown a little bit because it kinda fits her now!!

Im not sure I told you guys but Roxy is small dog aggressive probably because shes been attacked by so many!! Anyways I have been working with her on her socialization when we go to petsmart once a week and I just HATE the small dog owners! I mean they have a poodle or something and they stand there and watch Roxy going bazerk while Im trying to calm her down they just stand there and are like "Oh you shouldnt have her in here" "shes mean" blah blah blah! Take your freagin dog and walk away dont just stand there duhhhhhhh. Anyways they (small dog owners) always seem to have those retractable leashes on their ankle biters and let them go whereever they want in the store. This woman lets her poodle thing run right up to Roxy, she wasnt even looking in the little dogs direction, so it scares the crap out of her when this little dog ran right up and jumped on Roxy! So obviously she went in attack mode! I was trying my hardest to keep her calm and she slipped out of the Halti!! It was hooked to her color so I still had her but I thought that little dog was dinner!!! I screamed at the woman because the whole time this was going on she was basically standing in the other isle!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :roll:

Thats good that you are trying to socialize Roxy. Im trying to get Zeus socialized and to let him know that all dogs arent going to attack him like that Husky at the dog park. I know exactly what you mean when the owners just stand there and watch. Its like they dont care anout there dog and want them to be lunch. But i will stop with my rambling now. Time to get back on subjectv again

I'm a little out of the loop here....what exactly are these gentle leaders? An older woman was attempting to explain them to me at the dog park one day but she didn't actually have it with her. Great pics by the way...it looks like angel REALLY wants those ducks!
