Thankful Thursday: Watching Pickleball by Roxy

I am thankful that twice now mom and dad brought me along with them when they went to play pickleball near our house.  They used to leave me loose in the house, but since I chewed up the slipper last time they left me alone when they played, they decided to try taking me with them.  The alternative would be to be in my crate.

They brought along some water for me and tied my leash to the fence.  I had a ringside seat to watch them play and was happy to be with them.  There are lots of other things to see there too.  Sometimes there are kids playing hockey behind the pickleball courts, sometimes there are kids playing on the playground near by, today there was a man cutting the grass around the courts and sometimes other dogs go by.

Gerard seems to play better when I come along because mom's attention is divided.  She says I'm a bit of a distraction.  Both times I went, dad actually won a game!

This seems to work okay if it's not real hot out because there is no shade there for me to be in.  Where do you take your dog?
