After two days of travel on their own, the dogs made it to Edinburgh safe and sound last Friday. We've spent the better part of the days following making sure they were getting adjust. As you can see from the photos, they seem to be good and comfortable. Making themselves right at home. Both of them already have their favorite napping spots.
Almost every day since they've been here, we've taken them to explore some of the parks that are in the heart of the city and they've had a blast. Since Edinburgh doesn't have strict leash policies, they don't really have any traditional dog parks. All parks are dog parks - which is great for Nala and has been a learning experience with Islay. To be honest, Islay has impressed us. Before the move, we hadn't really done any off-leash training. We've gone to off-leash dog parks but they're all fenced in Seattle so there's not really a risk of her running away. But here, they have free reign if they're off-leash. So we decided to trust her. It's certainly been an experiment but it's gone great so far! Take a look for yourself - here they are at Bruntsfield Links and then at the Meadows.
Right now, they're fast asleep dreaming puppy dreams. Hopefully this week we'll be able to take them up Arthur's Seat.
