On Wednesday we had an old friend return to our adventures. Dillon the Lakeland Terrier came back for an adventure! Welcoming him to the pack were Logan and Beckem the Goldendoodles, Bailey the Golden Retriever, Nila the Desi Dog and Emma the Border Collie.
Logan, Emma, Nila and Dillon had a blast chasing each other around the woods. The games were almost non stop. Beckem and Bailey kept a more laid back pace with me at the back of the pack.
I have to say I was very proud of Logan! We’ve been working on his stick obsession. It seems to be that he is only interested in sticks if there is another dog attached to it. Which is ok if the other dog also wants to play tug. However, sometimes a dog (like Emma) just wants to carry a stick. Well I’m proud to report that Logan successfully listened to a “leave it” and left Emma alone with a stick! He had to think about it, but he did it! He’s showing great progress with his restraint. Of course Emma later taunted Logan into a game of chase with the stick he just left… Sigh, As long as both dogs are happy.
It was a great group to go hiking with. The rain in the morning was a nice change from the hot dry weather. It’s muddy time!
