He doesn’t even usually care about sticks, but for some reason this little 2 inch twig had his attention (could my waving it around like a treat have anything to do with it?).
Isaac and I went to the dog park with Toby this afternoon, but because of the rain and such, there was just one other dog, a 9 month old boxer named Rhaego (Game of Thrones, anyone?).
Luckily, he was full of energy, and loved to play rough the way Toby does. They chased each other around for a solid half hour before his owner wanted to leave.
I think this dog was meant to be a farm dog. He LOVES going up the community garden, and as soon as I turn down the road that it’s on, he KNOWS. He starts to get excited, bouncing around the backseat and whining (not my favorite part).
When we get there, he jumps out of the car and commences his immediate sniffing. Of everything.
So far, we have usually been up there alone. A few times there have been other people, once a couple little kids, and once another dog. Toby loves everybody, and he had a great time playing with Daisy the Golden Retriever, as well as exploring every inch of the farm with the kiddos.When it’s just us, he wanted around and explores on his own. He knows to stay inside the gate, and once in while comes and checks back in with me.
I spent time out in the ‘yard’ today planting some of our future dinners – kale, two types of lettuce, basil, cilantro, and spinach.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll plant the other stuff out at the community garden. I have a couple different kinds of tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, beans, peppers, and eggplant!
I did have a helper today. He was quite curious what I was doing.
As long as he doesn’t pee on my raised bed, we’ll stay friends. :p
