This year it was just Tango and Nemo. Lily and little Ike stayed at home – it was gray and drizzly, and besides, we didn't want to leave just one dog at home. So Dana chose Nemo and I (of course) chose Tango.
The dogs love to run through the fields (on leash, of course) sniffing and snuffling to see what scents they can uncover. I only wish I had their sense of smell for just one day! I would love to know what complex smells they can latch onto and recognize.
The folks who own the christmas tree farm are dog-friendly and even let the dogs into the barn where they have fresh wreaths and other christmastime goodies for sale. The dogs get a good whiff of all the good smells there, too. We usually run across a few families who want to come over and pet the dogs. The dogs are all too happy to oblige – there's no such thing as too much love from the dog's perspective!
Going to the christmas tree farm is one of our traditions we share with the dogs – what are your traditions involving dogs?
