|Vince is the only dog I allow to go out on|
his own, at large, without supervision.
Vince is old enough and wise enough. He
represents us in the neighborhood dog world.
|Out in the pasture today, that's Vince in the rear with nose to the|
ground. Then there's Theo and Kip up front, taking a break
from chasing the ball and chasing Theo, respectively.
|Theo with a ball, Kip following|
|Kip's schedule: Eat, play, run, sleep, grow, repeat.|
|Max was out in the pasture with us today. When he found|
himself without a ball, he grabbed a stick that I had just
cut from a tree.
|Kip tried to help.|
|Trooper is pretty good about coming back in when I call, and the rest of the dogs follow him|
back to the dog yard, except Max who, as usual, is marching to the beat of his different drummer.
|Harper and Kip, nose to nose|
|Harper doesn't understand that when Gigi comes and|
stands on the bed it means that she should get up.
|When Gigi sits and Harper still won't move,|
Gigi gives me the look that means that I'm
supposed to make it happen.
|Harper is a fur-covered contradiction; she's still scared of me, but she sleeps next to me at night|
and she will lay with her head resting on my foot.
