and wouldn't even come out with us when we went for our walk tonight. she has that "someone is mad at me" look, but no one is mad at her, tyra is a great and lovely dog. i am pulling her out of the dog room tonight and putting her back with me where she belongs. i don't ever want to see her unhappy especially when i don't know why. maybe rocky is stressing the dog room too much. i will hang out in there more and see.
but, it was a nice run in the upper field tonight. trev and maudie really had some fun. maudie rolled in more poop than cole and bill ate more than even that. i think that is why bill just lives forever, it has to be the high vegetarian content of his snacks. he is such a great, great dog. i hope he lives happy til he's 20!
low and behold, even andy joined us and he stayed brave til the very end til cole decided he'd had enough fun and chased andy back up to the house. come on cole, it takes him weeks to screw up his courage, ease up on the poor little guy. rocky is stone deaf still but it has to do with not listening and julie had to go and fetch him back. i won't be able to take him out on my own, but at least i can get him out a couple of evenings a week when someone is here. dexter got stuck on the pond side of the fence, he could not believe i wasn't going down there. but i was alone with all of the dogs so the upper field is safer. when julie came down she helped him back to the side the rest of us were on. the fencing is done and cole scouted the perimeter and i think he was ticked that we wrecked his fun. lexie as always was my very best shadow, but maude checked on me frequently too. the sooner we get back to normal again the better because we just have no schedule anymore and it sucks.
some days it is too snowy or wet or slippery for crutching, some days i am too tired or it has gotten too dark too fast. but tonight it was perfect except it was without tyra and that just didn't feel right at all.
anyway she is currently de-stuffing a ton of stuffies in the kitchen so i think she is over whatever upset her now.
