Anyways... it's nice to head out for an after-work skijor in the daylight. So the boys got to spend the day in the truck, wheeee!
Harris is basically sitting on top of my groceries. There was even chicken in there somewhere and he's so good he doesn't even touch it. Some of my other dogs (ahem, RIPPER) should emulate Harris' good behaviour!
Boys in the truck.
We just arrived at Heather's here and they know something is up. They're on high-alert.
Jack meets Lucky! Jack is extremely um, "frustrated" these days as PB! and Esther are taking turns being in heat. Some days he's just frazzled, other days he loses his appetite, sometimes he just paws at them on the other side of the fence, he'll howl INSIDE the cabin at night (and that's quite lovely to wake up to!). Poor guy. So he was excited to meet a new girl, but she's fixed so alas, she just really wanted to meet n' run.
He was making damned sure she's not in need of some lovin'.
And Harris got in on the fun too! Lucky is very patient.
A little bit of friskiness got Jack's hopes up.
Here comes Heather and Lucky, walking down the somewhat steep-ish, sidehilly trail out of their yard.
I missed Heather pulling up the first time and raising her arms in the victory sign, so I forced her to do it again. Here is the totally spontaneous result.
The trails were super fun! More hills than I thought and a couple times so steep I thought I'd run over Jack and Harris. Luckily that didn't happen. These are trails I trained on regularly many years ago (with someone else's dogs), so it was great to go back and see them again!
Here's a wee video of Heather and Lucky pulling up to us.
The noises I'm making in this may sound odd, but it's really just the result of the dogs trying to drag and jerk me down the trail. They were somewhat impatient at this point!
All in all, a very fun run with the dogs n' friends. In the LIGHT. After work. :)
