    The other day I took my girls on a walk by ourselves to the same park we met MandyPug and Izzie last week. I was disappointed that I didn't take any pictures that day with them, so had to go back specifically for pictures haha. And it was really nice out and I didn't want to waste such a warm day sitting at home, so a walk through one of our favourite parks seemed like a good idea. Journey did great. She tormented her sister as usual, but Dance tells her off if she's being too much and mostly they just ran and played and had a great time. And while Journ wore a long line for most of the time for her own safety just in case she decided to run off, I was very impressed at how much she paid attention to Dance and I and where we were. She's doing very well with her recalls, too. She makes having a puppy around so easy and enjoyable. She's so good, so attentive, so much fun, so comfortable in her own skin... just a really nice little dog. By far the most stable, easy going dog I've ever raised. I think she's going through a little bit of a fear stage, as she's been a little uncharacteristically jumpy at a few things, but nothing concerning. She recovers quickly and checks whatever it is out that surprised her, eats some treats, and carries on as normal. Also, apparently when you take two fuzzy, cute dogs out together you become a people magnet. More people talked to me on the way to and from the park that day than they usually do in an entire week haha. And a bunch of people thought they were both puppies or siblings. Silly people, although I guess Dance does look like a puppy to non-dog people. Anyway, I took a hundred and some pictures as usual, so here are a bunch!

    Don't worry, I don't let her actually bother Dance. If she's being a real pest I call her off and let Dance play alone. Or Dance snarks at her and she stops.

    Journey got so mad that she couldn't pass Dance haha. She grumbles and whines and tries so hard to race her. No idea why. She does it whether they're running to me or away from me.

    Still a lot more!

    She looks so grown up and mature sometimes. :)

    Serious ball faces. Well, the black one is serious anyway haha.

    Exciting news for me: Journey fetches!!! Yay! Not perfectly, but I'm glad she's grasping the concept now. And hopefully in time we'll be able to do more than three throws and she'll bring it all the way back before losing interest. But hey, it's progress!

    I tried hard earlier to pose them together, but the best ones are always when they pose themselves together. I love this picture.

    Apparently there is still a bunch more!

    Such a smiley girl.

    Journey thought the forest needed taste testing.

    And then they were adorably exhausted.

    But Dance tried to stay awake.

    And that's all, finally!

    Goodness, Journey is getting big! How old is she now?
    Also, I want Dance. She seems like such a fun, pretty girl.

    I'd say that was more of a run than a walk. Looks like they had a great time.

    Wow, what fun! Dance is so beautiful and makes some spectacular faces :) Journey is getting so big and mature looking. They are so striking together.

    Two of the prettiest girls ever. And great photos - love the expressive faces and the personalities that shine through.

    Looks like so much fun! Can I move in?

    Thanks!

    Journey is 4 months... 17 weeks I think now. I keep losing track of the weeks though haha.

    Dance is a ton of fun. But she's my fun, so you can't have her! :p

    A run for them! They don't see the point in walking when there is so much open space haha.

    Thanks! And yeah, Dance is the queen of goofy faces. It's hard to capture her just looking serious and normal sometimes LOL.

    Thank you!

    Thanks!

    They're a good pair for sure. I wish I could do more things with them together, but this park is basically the only place I'll take Dance out with Journey unfortunately. I don't want Dance's lower confidence level and weirdness with people rubbing off on Journey, so quiet places where I know there won't be a ton of people are the only places they go together.

    Thanks!

    I know! She keeps on growing but at the same time is staying looking like a puppy, which is nice.

    Thank you!

    And sure haha. Not that there's much room here, but we could find room for you and Trent!

    Thank you!

    Thanks!

    Nina was my favorite in the litter from day one (I love my black dogs!), so I'm so excited that we keep getting to see Journey grow up! She's turning into such a pretty girl!

    And Dance makes the best expressions ever. She's more expressive than a lot of people I know!
