|Our view from the pole barn. You can see a faint rainbow|
against the dark cloud that was still producing lightning.
|He actually settled down pretty quickly on the hike. He wasn't|
sure about walking in the rain and thunder for the first mile
or so, but I convinced him we were going on.
Maya and I took him on a hike this afternoon, starting out just when our daily thunderstorm was moving in. We were going, regardless, because I had to subdue Jack. We were all soaked within the first half mile, but it was warm, spring rain. Besides, none of us is so sweet that we were in any danger of melting in the rain. We did take refuge under the pole barn at Pleasant Grove while we waited for the lightning and thunder to move on, then we continued our hike.
I had an Easy Walk harness and a prong collar on Jack, with a leash attached to each of them. He really wasn't too bad on the leash, the harness did most of the work, but what settled him down the most was him finding a rock to carry. He carried that damn rock for three miles before he finally dropped it so he could let his tongue hang out so he could pant properly. He tried a stick for a bit but ended up with another idiot rock that he brought home.
|Jack and his stupid rock.|
|The sky was very pretty after the storm.|
|Maya wasn't deterred by the storm or the rock|
carrying shepherd who accompanied us.
|The woods are really turning green.|
