While we do what we can when planning routes to avoid surprises, you can't always account for everything.
This week was a good reminder on the importance of being flexible. After running into a couple off-leash dogs (and a less-than-helpful owner), we had to turn our whole group around and find an alternative route.
Our path back wasn't the most scenic or ideal, but it got us there without incident. And our dogs didn't mind one bit.
Have your walk plans ever been derailed? How did you get back on track?
