Parker’s Tails from the Trailz

When I first met Parker, I knew right away we were going to hit it off – she came and sat right in front of me during our consultation, her happy face inches from my own, silently demanding my attention.

 

When I showed up for our first walk together, Parker was content to come over and let me put her leash on, and then seemed very happy to go roaming through the trails of Lighthouse Field. After that, whenever I showed up at her house, she was not only content to let me leash her, but super excited, dancing around in place and telling me quite clearly that she was ready to walk.

Sean also got to enjoy some Parker walks. After his first walk alone with her, we both went to get Parker the next day. I brought her outside, and the moment she saw Sean she was like a puppy, practically pulling me down the stairs and bounding right up to him, her whole body wagging. I thought, wow, they must have really bonded on their walk together yesterday.

Then the next time we both went to get Parker, Sean was the one to bring her outside, and she did the same thing to me, leaping over, a huge doggie grin on her face, and I realized this is just the way Parker reacts whenever she sees one of her friends. It’s a pretty nice way to start a walk, getting this kind of royal doggie greeting, and then watching as Parker prances down the trail, tail up, looking so happy.

Of course, Gordy had to get in on the action, so we brought him along for a full GoDogz pack walk – a couple of sniffs later and Parker and Gordy were instant friends. After that, Gordy also got to experience the joy that was a Parker greeting. 🙂

Like any true GoDog, Parker was always happy and excited to walk. She was eager to explore the trails of Lighthouse Field, or walk along West Cliff, but one of her favorite things to do was roll in the grass next to the lighthouse. Such an ecstatic grass-rolling dog! After I discovered this joy of hers, we made a point to pass that grass field on most of our walks so she could get in a few good rolls.

Sadly, Parker passed away suddenly over the weekend. She was ten years and four months old, and lived her life to the fullest right up until the end. I’ve never met a happier dog, so exuberant in everything she did, whether it be rolling in the grass, going for a walk, or meeting her favorite people, and I am just so glad we got to meet her and share some adventures with her this past month.

Rest in peace, Parker. You will be sorely missed.
