But Ptera hadn't had a chance to do much other than hang out in the yard and sleep on the bed for the day, so I wanted to get her out and about a bit, and had to make sure to grab some photos for our Hikes and Beach Goals series.
In the end, a tired dog is a good dog. To a certain extent. For Ptera, I feel that unwinding in the woods makes for a more relaxed kind of tired than a weekend of flyball or lure coursing. She may sleep as deep, but she seems more calm in her sleep after hiking.
