Today started out pretty awesome! I had a Skype date with Kris and we talked for 2 hours where we could see each other. Kris was first in Scot’s truck using a wireless device thingy, which worked really well. It was pretty cool. Then when his laptop began to die, he drove to Starbucks to plug in and we finished our chat. 🙂
After that I met with Alicyn and her border collie, Jess. We tried experimenting with a game called Treibball. We used a small, hard, plastic ball at first and then we moved to a larger exercise ball. Jess did really well and both Alicyn and I learned a lot. Neither of us had tried anything like that before, so we both were experimenting and using Jess as a guinea pig. She did an awesome job and was very patient with us. 😀
Then I decided to take my dogs to Green Bluff out in Owen County. However the directions were not that great, so I ended up driving about 30 minutes longer than necessary and not only that but the roads were totally crap! I found it finally but it seemed a bit more rugged than I was really ready for today, so I decided to head to Griffy. I’m glad that I did, it was a lot of fun and I think the dogs enjoyed it too. Following are some examples.

Swimming back with it.
Look Ma! I gots it!
The little guy hates to be wet. I didn’t have the heart to tell him he’d never get dry that way….
A whole pack of dogs meeting….
It’s the rare Tasha-shark….
Look at those nasty feet!!! The water level was down quite a bit so the “shallows” were actually the deep revealed. So instead of mixed up mud from dogs playing in the shallows, it was deep, nasty sediment that doesn’t get stirred up much.
Tasha come to say hello. I was petting just the top of her head because she was wet and dirty, lol.
Again, the rare Tasha-shark, with the even more rare, Kota-belly on shore.
