Willow’s first visit to Sonstraaldam: 17 July 2021

I promised Willow yesterday that we would go for a walk this morning. I am not sure if Willow can understand me, but I think she remembered my promise to her.

At first I just wanted to walk around the neighborhood but then I decided against it. I got her leash and car keys. Normally she runs around and make a game of putting on her training collar and leash, not this morning she came and sat in front of me and her tail was sweeping the floor of excitement.

I drove to Sonstraaldam a place where I love to take photos. This morning it was just me, Willow and my cellphone. Willow first needs to get familiar with the places I like to take photos. This will mean that we will visit there a few times before I take my camera with. I am going to be honest it is hell not to have my camera there, and I see all these amazing shots I miss. But I think it is also important that Willow learn and get exposed to all the new scents and sounds.

The dam will be there tomorrow and I will get amazing shots then.

Willow sniffed and ran and pulled and sniffed the whole time. We went around the dam twice. The first time was so that she can sniff and smell everything. The second time was much more relaxed although she still sniffed a lot she did not pull as much.

I was very surprised that she did not run after the geese. She did want to chase the Guineafowl. But I pulled her back and told her not to. I will never get in a bird shot again if I teach her to chase the birds.

We also socialized with a French poodle and a big White Swiss Shephard. Willow enjoyed this and I wish we are at a stage where I can take of her leash too so that she can go play. We will get there I know and I know it will take some time.

Thank you for joining us on our walk around the dam. Willow says she is very tired now and is going to sleep the rest of the day.

Have a fantastic day.
