Today was such a beautiful day, I decided to "play hooky". Monte and I started our day with a long walk to the park. It wasn't long distance wise, but time wise. We stopped and every street corner to practice our pivots. We crossed the street and did some more. By the time we arrived at the park we were dizzy from all that turning. His reward was some off leash time before we repeated our exercises on the way home with the addition of "Tree Circles".
At home Monte relaxed outside while I did some yard work. He passed the test; he remained silent and calmly watched me work.
Wednesday means a trip to the farm to visit his friends: two-legged and four-legged. The pigs initially ignored us because they were busy rutting. While we waited for them to finish their dinner, Monte was annoited with love by two young humans who have seen him mature over the last four months.
Eventually the swine finished eating and greeted their canine pal.
