I love watching the girls play fetch at the lake. It doesn't matter if you toss one stick or two sticks they both go after one stick and the competition is on. They will prance around the park with one long stick holding the two of them together in perfect step like a couple of show horses.
When I work in the in home office, they often stay with me while Dale works in the morning. He stops in and picks them up anytime between Noon and 3:00 PM. One Day at 2:30 the girls started throwing a fit. We had gone to the park during an early lunch. So I figured that they just needed to "go out" for a potty break. Nope! They figured that it was time for Dale to pick them up and they ran out to the side walk and proceeded to watch for him to come.

Feeding time. We don't give our dogs a cup of food a few times a day. They actually eat whenever they are hungry. They usually only eat small amounts. As you can see by the photos, they are not overweight. Dale used to have two feeding bowls set out in different areas of the kitchen. One for each dog. This tub is used for storage in the entry way. They stopped eating out of the bowls and started to go into the tub in the entryway. So Dale brought it into the kitchen. Yes, the dogs are spoiled.
|Hurry up, would you?|
My Jenny, picks up the tennis balls from around the house and as she watches Duchess eat, she will drop them in. I think hoping to disrupt Duchess and getting her turn faster. On a rare occasion they will both have their heads in at the same time. Once My Jenny gets into the tub, she first re-arranges the toys. It is as if the best food is under the toys, hiding from Duchess. Dale says that she is just a neat girl and picks up after herself. (Conveniently every time Mama is eating,)
