Confederation Trail

In addition to the many wonderful beaches, we also have the Confederation Trail to explore. The trail is over 400 km long and goes from tip to tip of the island. There are many access points and the other day, Brook and Trail decided to check out a section.

In case you are wondering, yes it was a bit of chaos getting a 55 pound deaf dog (Trail) and a 32 pound blind and partly deaf dog (Brook) to calmly walk. Just getting out of our vehicle and to the trail was a challenge.  

Once there, the two of them had differing opinions as to which way we should go.

It took a minute but they got themselves sorted out and off we went.

This was the first leash walk the two of them have been on together and they did really well. Trail tends to be very calm on leash walks and I wondered if Brook's enthusiasm would rub off on him. Nope, he stayed calm and seemed to calm her a little.

The section of trail we explored on this day wasn't overly scenic (Brook didn't care) but it was a nice walk with lots for the dogs to sniff.  There was one scenic spot so I had them sit for a picture.

That is a little mischievous look on Brook's face...immediately following that picture, I took this one...

"Where are you going Brook?"


  1. That is a mischievous look, Brook has....
