We are walking two dogs today and Indi is beside himself with excitement as he comes out of the dogs room and Jester the monkey is as happy as Larry. Steve has some “training treats!” for Jester in his pocket and the smart dog already senses this and starts behaving orderly, but only after a manic run around first.
So we start out through the orchard today and Indi is looking for the tennis ball he thinks I have for him in my pocket! while Jester is just pleased to be out and responding to Steve like he is his schoolmaster!
We reach the small wood and off the leads they go….Indi, on a mission to pick the perfect spot to do his business and this sometimes takes a while….to find the discreet, right spot. Today he didn’t seem too particular and just “did the business” only slightly off the path.
Jester was running with the wind again….so free spirited. We found him digging a hole in the snow and think he found the head of a fish! Can’t believe this…. but a fish head is what it looked like. Would a bird of prey have left this? Not sure but whatever this was he was on cloud nine and running around defrosting it in his mouth and teasing Indi at the same time! “look at me Indi,” he said “You’re too old and slow to have found this. Wehhaaaay!”
We let Jester have his find which gave me time to chase Indi as he decided to run off. Not for long. After blowing my whistle for ages, he finally decided to turn around and join us. “Indi…come on, behave now!” His look at me was like he was ten times smarter than me….giving me any easy time today!
Walking back to the cottage was very rewarding. I love the snow, although the lane was very slippery in places. It was funny watching the dogs slip a little as they walked…not like us heavy adults!
Back home and I tucked the dogs up in their beds with plenty of water and a smile.
