Dogs need more than one public holiday!

Good morning, dear friends!
Tomorrow is a public holiday in South Africa - Heritage Day!
Some folks have to work today. Others however....? 
 I think Lexi has the right idea, don't you?
 Lexi's obedience assessment for her 
Canine Good Citizen grading (Bronze) on Saturday took its toll on our young pup.
We decided, however, to treat her and Toby to a mega-walk in the park yesterday.
(Phew! They ran their socks off!)

Last night, the house radiated with a quiet rumbling of dog snoring.
Life is good if you are a pooch in our house!
I presume that today will also be a day of rest for my furry companions.

But, since it is a public holiday tomorrow, why not teach your dog a new trick?
Toby demonstrates how it's done:

Wishing everyone a happy heritage day (tomorrow) and sending lots of love to you all.


My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said... dad was just thinking how nice it would be to take the day off. But unfortunately that's not how it's going to work out. Something about earning money to pay for us...

Dogs are so happy when they've had a good romp and are tired! When it's winter and rainy they get nervous energy and cranky. What a great reward to let them run their socks off and then catch biscuits!!!

Happy Heritage Day.
How many goes before Toby mastered the biscuit catching trick?
Bertie and I are most impressed anyway!
Cheers, Gail.

Howdy Mates. Relaxing on a holiday is the best. Loved your trick and we might give it a try but mum doesn't think it will work with me, Stella, cause I'm a greedy guts hehe. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
