Talking Ollie goes to Balboa park(pictures!)

Ollie turned four months old today!

My husband has been working 12+ hours days for about a week including through the weekend because of a deadline but his boss gave him the day off today so we decided to take Ollie out for some sun, fun and socialization. Balboa is the largest park in this country, even bigger then Central Park... It has the San Diego Zoo, loads of museums, botanical gardens, nature trails and a few big dog parks. I'd highly recommend visiting if you're ever in the San Diego area!

He did SO well and met loads of people including several small children which he adored and was so gentle with. His temperament has been absolutely phenomenal so far, he's not landsharky at all and didn't jump all over or nip at the kids... He's amazing. Even when we sat down for lunch, he just plopped down and people watched, I'm just stunned by how mellow he is for his age.

Pictures!

Fountain by the science center, we had lunch here

Gorgeous pics!! Ollie is getting big! Sounds like you guys had a great day out. Hate to say it, but you may have to 'help' those ears.... my plushie coated bitch had to have help, but when I finally got them to stand, they stayed up. He's so adorable it's ridiculous!!

Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. It's always nice to virtually travel to areas, through your photos I will probably not get to visit any time soon. Looks like your pup had a full day!

OK, I'm jealous .. I don't see ANY snow or grey sky or anything remotely resembling winter!!!!

Those are great pics ...

don't worry about the ears yet LOL ... remember he's a coatie!!! Ky's were still down at 4 months ... I think it's because they are heavier with all those floofies!!!

I'm guessing if you stood IN the fountain with the camera he'd look at you!!!!

Thanks! He might look a bit small next to my husband who's six foot lol but he is definitely growing lots, I keep having to adjust his sensations harness, lol! Btw those harness's are AMAZING for pullers... Ollie walks beautifully loose leash with this harness but if he's on a collar, any collar including the martingale he is a ferocious terrible puller. I need to work with him on that more I know but for now the harness is a godsend!

I'm hoping since he's just four months that there's still hope left since both of his ears has stood up at one point, just never at the same time.

LOL no we don't get winter here, it was about 65 today(no idea what that is in C lol).

Hoping you're right about the ears though at least his breeder said she will help if they don't go up on their own.

And I'm guessing more then just Ollie would be looking at me if I were to get in that fountain.

He also met a couple Great Danes, should have seen the look on his face like, "what in the heck is THAT??"
I'm going to be sad for him when he's grown and people don't fawn all over him anymore, he loves meeting new people so much and he'll seem confused if someone just walks by him and ignores him, lol. I just have to remember not everyone likes dogs.

I guess I should have put this in the picture section, I always forget about that section. I be derpin'.

No no no! You're doing it all wrong with the puppy training.
You had better stop what you are doing with Ollie right now and send him my way. I'll help you fix everything you've done wrong.
