I was starting to get concerned that the dogs were never going to wake up out of their summer coma. Once the cooler fall weather started to settle in, my fears were evaded. WHEW!
In the spirit of their energy, the Front Dogs and I were chasing squirrels. Something I have done several times with the Back Dogs, but for some reason never engaged the Front Dogs with play hunting. Blaze was already standing up on a pine tree, whining, as a squirrel must have recently went by. So we ran from tree to tree, searching for that measly squirrel. Both dogs jumped right into the game. Blaze was so razzed up that she jumped and froze when Chance sneezed. The whole game was fun and quite hilarious. I wondered why I hadn't thought it before with them. Well we did what we could, but no squirrel was to be found.
Although later when I came back out, I discovered the hunt had not been for a squirrel, but a chipmunk that Blaze had caught and was carrying in her mouth!! Which she claims is just as tasty if not more so than squirrel!!
