We took Jaxon out for a REALLY long walk in Santa Monica last weekend during Presidents Day.
We went up and down the boardwalk on concrete, all over the Santa Monica pier which is wooden and very very smooth from the years of people traveling.
All in all we walked a good 5 miles over a 3 hour period with three or so sit down and rests for 15 minutes plus. Some laying in the grass on Ocean Blvd. Got lunch at a restaurant on the 3rd Street Promenade.
He absolutely loved it. He met a good 200 people who came up to him and said HI and petted him and about 20 more dogs throughout the day.
He also was in an immersion socialization program for 4 days before that too where he was playing with 50 dogs a day at doggie day camp. So he could still be tired from that too. He is a trooper.
When we got back the little guy was limping a bit. I checked his feet for splinters or any injuries, but there was nothing. He's all good.
I thought he might just be sore. I did actually step on one of his back feet right at the end of the day as we were heading to the car. Maybe he's just got a sore foot. I thought he may have some bruised pads too from walking all day.
He runs around like a fool right now at full speed, makes me chase him and is having a blast being the happy dog that he is.
If he doesn't stop limping by Friday, I'm gonna take him in to get checked.
Did I work him too hard for 19 weeks old?
