From the dog walker:

Hobie did great today at the park.

I think the dog walker takes Hobie to the beach at least once a week. Lucky dog. We're pretty happy when he doesn't go to the beach too, since he's not as dirty.

From the dog walker:

Another beautiful day at Fort Funston.

We can feel it on Hobie's fur when he has been to Fort Funston. When we pet his back we can feel a little bit of sand still left. He seems very happy when he has been to the beach, though. I guess it's more tiring than just going to the park.

Another day at the beach

From the dog walker:

Hobie a a fun playgroup day at the beach.

Today was another rainy day. This morning, Hobie saw people at the park with umbrellas, and his tail went between his legs. It's bizarre how scared he is of umbrellas now.

Rainy day

Today it was raining hard. Hobie barely wanted to step a foot outside the apartment building this morning. He just sat down and shivered near the door.

Fortunately, the rain stopped for a while around lunchtime, and we got this note from the dog walker:


We didn't mind the weather and had a great time @ Fort Funston!

I'm going to start posting the notes we get from the dog walker. This is what we got today:

Hobie did great today @ the park. He's doing really well w/ other dogs.

Better social skills

|

Hobie's dog social skills aren't that good. Sometimes he'll growl a little bit at other dogs, and he's usually not the least excited to meet strangers. He did growl at us for around a year until he finally succumbed.

Something bad probably happened to him before we adopted him, but he's slowly getting over it.

We asked the dog walker how he is with other dogs, and today we get this message:


We had lots of fun @ Fort Funston. He's actually chasing other dogs. I think his social dog 2 dog skills are improving.

It's great that Hobie is doing better. At the park he will usually just circle around us until we take out a ball. If we didn't bring a ball, he'll sometimes sniff another dog a little bit, but he'll usually just sit down in front of us and beg for a ball.

Sniffing dogs is not the only thing he's too excited to do if he knows there is a ball around... We have resorted to trying to fool him into thinking we didn't bring a toy. We'll trick him into running after something, or going somewhere else in the apartment while we quickly stuff a toy in a bag.

His social skills are improving though, and he's much friendlier now to strangers than he used to be. He even let a little kid pet him the other day (normally he'll hide behind me if a kid approaches).
