I feel like I’ve posted this over and over again… dogs playing at the pond… Shayne jumping off the rocks, Rio swimming with toys, Bandit coated in mud. You’ll have to tolerate one more post like this (at least). On Friday we took the dogs to the pond and it was just a gorgeous day! Low 80’sF, sunny as can be, a nice breeze, and only moderately high humidity (beggars can’t be choosers). The dogs had a great time just wondering the property, chasing the turkeys, hunting mice in the grass, and chasing squirrels through the woods, all while I watched from a distance. It’s so amazing watching the dogs do their thing… use their noses, use their brains, hunt down their ‘prey’ (they don’t actually hurt critters just enjoy the hunt). For domesticated animals who have relied on humans for most everything for many generations, they are pretty proficient seekers.
After some “be a dog” time, we got down to some real work… playing ball and swimming!
…and at the end of the day, Shayne finds a comfy place to get into my lap… with her dripping gross tennis ball… uhh… sorry Shayne!
