|Daphne went back home today so|
we are back down to nine dogs,
temporarily at least.
|Theo has two balls in his big mouth already|
so when I throw a third ball he runs after it
but doesn't pick it up. He returns with his
original two but won't give them up although
he still wants me to throw another.
|Commando is a big brute on the playing|
field, throwing his considerable weight
around, but he's shaping up to be a really
|Commando would pick up a ball but he|
never carried it far and certainly never
brought it back to me.
Mostly he just liked to run.
I don't think Gigi shared my attitude towards getting out in the wet weather. I suspect her preferred way of dealing with it would be to stay in bed and wait for things to improve. But she did some running, mostly with Commando who tried repeatedly to engage her in play.
|This was a common sight, Commando running|
after Theo who was running after a ball.
|Commando's house manners|
are coming along. He hasn't
marked, he's good in his crate,
and he has learned to do stairs.
|When Commando tired of running with Theo,|
he spent a lot of time trying to engage Gigi in play.
|When Gigi decides to run, she is fast.|
|Jasso enjoyed being outside again.|
|L to R: Theo, Commando, Jasso, and Daphne|
|Gigi and Commando|
|Gigi giving me the sideways glance,|
not sure we should be outside.
|Daphne is fast on short distances and could get the ball|
but she didn't really care about having it afterwards.
|I'm very happy that Jasso is feeling good again. As soon as he's neutered I'll start looking for|
an adopter to give him a permanent retirement home, but if he stays here, that would be fine too.
