HAH! Take that, Wootie.
While Jingles tinkles merrily away on our walks, he also cannot disappear because the absence of the ringing is rather apparent. As he starts to wander off, he gets called back – see, Wootie will only take off if he’s already out of sight. But if you notice him leaving, he pretends he wasn’t going anywhere in the first place. This is one VERY sly dog.
Since I put them bell on him on Sunday, he has been remarkably present.
We didn’t even lose him on the hike today. He did try to scuttle off into the bushes once or twice, but since there were three humans, who were SUPER ANNOYED by his bell, one of us always noticed when the tinkling started to fade from earshot.
Bear bells: available for about $4.00 from your local outdoor sporting goods store.
We go hiking once a week in the deserted forests in the Belcarra area with Cheryl, who is a dogwalker, and goes there every day for her job. That’s a cool job. But she has Ru, a TDBCR adoptee, who has a reputation for “breaking” dogs. While Ru is allegedly an old dog, he outruns everyone on the hike, every single day. Any dog foolish enough to try and keep up with him ends up a crippled gimp at the end of the day.
… borderjacks who clone themselves, bigger than life.
The result is The Tri Pod Formerly Known As Tweed. He’s totally gimped this afternoon :(
We are still accepting guesses as to what her breed mix might be.
But be careful, for if you guess wrong …
