My Collie mix puppy named Kash, is half Border Collie and half Australian Shepherd.
We went out in our woods yesterday. We had some incredible warm weather that melted almost all of our snow it two days! The snow had been deeper than little Kash’s legs since we adopted him, so seeing fresh earth was something new to him.
And boy did he get frisky, and freaky fast! You should have seen him running hell-bent through the woods as if the devil was chasing him. This dog has more moves than Barry Sanders on his best day!
He also discovered moving water. There is a small creek that runs through the woods when the snow melts. It was flowing about as big as I have ever seen it. Kash looked at it for a moment and just jumped in. He jumped out just as fast! It was cold!
Here are a couple pictures from our little walk.
We have been working on “come here” as per our Dog Training course. He is responding very well. I did have problems at first, I was frustrated and yelling. That didn’t work. Once I followed directions and kept calm, the whole “come here” command really started working much better. This is a head-strong dog, but we are getting there.
These long walks in the woods sure do whip us both out! Kash slept through the whole night without a sound. He was so quiet I got up and checked to see if he was ok.
We’re going for another hike in the woods… Wonder what new discoveries Kash will make this time?
Love your pet unconditionally.
