Few thoughts for today as we all catch up with things put off until the weekend. But who am I kidding… among all the things to do we still must find time to relax and enjoy each day. :)
The Yellow Lab is eager to make a retrieve. In the field I put a couple of pheasant wings in different places. I’m marking the path for a blind retrieve…. which doesn’t mean a whole lot to him at this point. He races towards the mark I give him, but then tails off in one direction or another before he quite gets there. Instead of being as “direct” as he was last month, I think he’s feeling his oats lately… he loves to choose his own path. I’ve got to work on that- although he does make the retrieve, it takes him longer now, he runs from one side the other, sometimes back, and wastes energy. Sometimes I struggle to understand “how” to get him to do things… it’s part of his education, and most certainly it’s part of mine!
He has grown to muscled youth with a vigor I can only look back upon. The pheasant wing is in his mouth on the way back from finding its hiding place.
The pond was foggy on several days this week- I love the mist on the waters, and it makes me wonder what lurks in the deep?
