Ke-ola's two day wrap up...milestones and new firsts

Ball! Ball! Ball!
Sorry for missing Ke-ola's post yesterday but I'm combining his two days worth of adventures here. As always Ke-ola always bring the kid out in my husband Roland. They love to play indoors and out. Roland says Ke-ola is a great stress-reliever so it's not uncommon to hear commotion downstairs only to find them both playing. I need to admit they make me laugh. Ke-ola is happy to interact and play all day long. He is also very silly and joyful it's hard not to smile when your with him.  In this clip Ke-ola and Roland are "playing" fetch. I loved watching them but I am easily amused.

Today we decided Ke-ola was familiar enough with the yard and healthy enough to play on his own. It was his first leash free outdoor adventure. It was wonderful to see him run and jump and wag and smile. He attacked pinecones and played with branches. He sniffed and sniffed and marked and marked. Once he settled down I began doing yard work. He was never more than 8 to 10 feet away. He played independently but stayed close. It was very heartwarming to experience that even in his joyous freedom he wanted to stay connected. 

Here Ke-ola is off leash for the first time free to roam and investigate on his own. He's a very happy pup indeed!

After he had enjoyed plenty of playtime I decided to bring him to our pool. It is gated so he's never been close to the edge. I want to help him get over his fear of large bodies of water. Today we spent 20 minutes just sitting close to the steps. I let him smell the water and look at it. When I thought he was ready I put my hand in the water and let him drink. He really liked it! He is over his hesitation and is relaxed walking around the pool. I think he may even be a water dog one day.

I'm grateful for such a beautiful day getting to watch a wonderful soul run free and gain courage. Thank you Ke-ola you're an inspiration and a joy.

Wishing you and your pack peace today and everyday. Thank you for visiting.
