Tulip was a very sweet boxer mix. She gave me kisses when I would kneel beside her. Her laid back attitude went to a whole new level. I think she might have taught herself to heal because she naturally returned to my side after she sniffed the grass a bit. Tulip had a calmness about her as soon as I met her, but that drastically changed when we stepped foot onto a big field. She immediately busted out all this energy and bolted about like a Ping pong ball at a championship tournament. In all her excitement of being outside and able to run, she did nip a good amount at my legs. I think that if a person brought a toy along while on walks she could easily learn where and how to redirect the nipping action in her frenzy of excitement.
During our walk, on a wonderfully sunny morning, she would sometimes walk behind me in a relaxed manner making me think that my slow walking pace was too fast. Every once in a while she would jump onto the grass along the curb and roll around in it, giving herself a nice, fun back scratch. Sometimes she would have fresh cut grass stick to her afterwards, which was quite amusing.
Tulip would strive with a family that has a big yard for her to run around. When she noticed another dog during our stroll, she seemed intrigued, but showed no forms of hostility.
