|Scarlett is a former foster who stays with|
us when her owner goes out of town.
When Scarlett came yesterday it made an even dozen dogs. The only hope for peace and quiet with that many dogs, (too many of them being shepherds), is to get them tired out so they are happy to go to sleep when the sun goes down.
|L to R: Harper, Scarlett, and Maya|
|Scarlett is living the good life now and it shows. She's happy|
but she's also a bit overweight, so she did three miles today
along with Harper and Maya.
|Gigi doesn't need to lose weight, but|
she does need to get out and get some
|Trooper, Maya, and Gigi did a second|
hike of about four miles.
|Gigi wanted to go today, but I doubt that she will tomorrow.|
|"Which way is back to my bed?"|
|These four had been in the dog yard all day, but when I got back from the second hike I took|
them out to the pasture to play ball and generally run around.
L to R: Kip, Theo, Atlas, and Sam
|Sam's tail in the full corkscrew configuration.|
|This was the first time in the pasture for Atlas. He was more|
interested in exploring than in the playing ball but he did
a lot of running with the other boys.
|Sam is the best about giving up the ball but|
he doesn't always see it being thrown.
|Kip, Atlas, and Sam|
|Kip was much more confident|
out there today.
|Kip is learning the routines around here very quickly.|
He's eating very well and I think he's putting on weight.
