Dogs a gogo!
Unfortunately my chest infection is not only back it is back with a vengeance with a secondary bacterial infection I feel 2014 is rushing past me!
Whilst I bore myself silly using our field times like this it is simply a godsend, funnily enough the dogs don't care they revel in the relative freedom and the chance to pick their playmates.
You get used to the friendships though it is sometimes hard to keep up with the teenagers as they change friends like no other. However the dogs do love to keep us on our toes and choose to play with someone different with hilarious results.
Pugs chasing vizslas, pugshiht's chasing everyone and four chasing each other though you never know who out of the four is chasing who.
Chance was chasing Martha until Martha decided to chase chance. Moo chased Lola who was stalking truffle only to be stalked by fluffy. Poppy as ever had Roly on his tail before Lola dumped truffle to join in therefore fluffy had to also join in. Moo unsuccessfully tried to initiate play with pixie only to try herding her like she does with Isabelle again unsuccessfully.
Harvey by now had the yellow ball so Montanna had to keep a close eye on him waiting to strike only to then leave it behind that game only fun if the dog plays rug over the ball!
Lottie ever the live wire swung from playing with speedy Chance and Moo completely dumping fluffy today.
Well soon all settled the guys who were in the quieter bunch had already settled into the heated van for a kip whilst the third gang started to mouse hunt( utterly unsuccessfully I'm delighted to say) earnestly and came up trumps by finding Murphy's missing booties!
The guys and girls never cease to amaze me with their fluid moods, friendships and partnerships. Sirus behaved totally out of character and was horribly grumpy with lovely dexter yet without doubt we know something will be up so we wait to hear why he might behave so out of character if not a health check needed.
Ember is learning to play at first with a muzzle so she can't play bite then naked once she has settled enough to play nicely. You can see her growing up and learning the rules week by week and it's lovely to see.
All in all a fabulous fun relentless play at the field even the lame, gimpy or steady guys had a busy safe morning busy with their own little delights.
So whilst many a time I don't get excited to go to the field I have to say today had been sheer entertainment!
