I knew it was going to be a fun morning when I saw Barbara packing up my tracking bag. And it got even better when she drove the dog crate on wheels through the drive-thru at Burger King. I could smell those sausage biscuits and was anticipating the fun of tracking and the great rewards.
But first we stopped at the dog park to run off some energy and meet my boyfriend Riley. I haven't seen him in awhile so I was glad to get the chance to play with him.
There was a nice group there this morning and we are had a good sniff at one another.
I did a lot of running around at first. No pictures of that because I was going so fast that I was a blur. Then I invited Riley to play with me.
The two of us get along very well and you can see my good play postures and curvy body language.
We really enjoyed the opportunity to play together and I know that Barbara was glad to see that the play helped me settle down a bit.
Riley found a nice chocolate lab mix dog to play with as well. The did a lot of bitey face and finally they both got down on the ground to chew on each other. Very silly but fun and they got very dirty too.
Then it was on to the tracking fields. Here is my BFF Ayla with her person. Ayla is all ready to track.
My boyfriend Trotter is a good tracker but he is not as intense about it as Ayla and me. He is working that track very well. I think he likes agility better because he recently got his Novice Agility title.
I ran a track where I had to find 8 articles including gloves, socks and slippers. I found them all and got sausage biscuit and muenster cheese as my reward. Very well worth it! No photos though because Barbara can't manage to hold the tracking line and take pictures at the same time! Then we headed home as I really need a nap now.
