Koopa’s first walk

Koopa's first walk

Surely one of the best bits about having a dog is taking it out for a walk!   We were super excited about taking Koopa for his first walk!

We bought a little harness and lead for him from a shop near by, weird that they sell them really as generally people don’t walk their dogs, they just kinda roam around free!
Anyway, we adjusted the harness to the smallest position, it was still a little big for our little guy, and got ready to go!

I was expecting him to fight it but he seemed more than happy on his lead!!

Unfortunately Arthur had woken up from his nap n a bit of a grump.  We probably should have waited for him to cheer up a bit but we figured seeing Koopa out with us would do the trick.

We walked to the part of the beach closest to us, it takes about a minute.  It’s not the most amazing beach but ideal for a walk especially since it’s so close.   Arthur insisted on being carried, thanks to his grumpy mood so I was thankful it wasn’t far to go either, Mark had Freddie in the wrap.

Once we got onto the beach it didn’t take Arthur too long to cheer up.  The beach is definitely this boy’s happy place.  He was delighted that Koopa was with us too!

Koopa was a little nervous at first.  He stuck very close to us and was having a good old sniff around.

He was definitely enjoying it though.

Rather annoyingly my camera ran out of battery after a couple of minutes down on the beach.  We didn’t stay too long anyway, it was more about introducing Koopa to the beach!!

We were really happy to have carried out the first of hopefully very many beach walks with the boys and Koopa!

It can be easy, even here, to pass a day without spending enough time outside so little Koopa will always be a perfect excuse to get out and get some fresh air down on the beach.
