Let's face it, some days just getting out of bed is the hardest part of the day. But once you have crawled out of the sack and had your breakfast what do you do next?
Lucy likes to play "Fetch" and she's getting very good at it. She is now six months old and full of energy. So, we go for a walk once a day and we play fetch a couple of times a day. We play in the evening just to burn off the last of the energy and get her ready for bed.
When we got her in March, Lucy was 5 lbs and 10 weeks old. Now she is a 6 month old pup and weigh in at 12 lbs. When she is full grown Lucy will weigh in at 15-20 lbs and that is the perfect size for us.
She has gotten to the point that she will now retrieve the ball and bring it back, circle behind me and drop the ball within a foot or two of my feet. She's pretty proud of herself and so am I. So, how does she let you know that she's done playing "Fetch".
She only brings the ball half way back across the yard, lays down and that's the end of the game. But tomorrow is a new day and another game will be played. I LOVE cocker spaniels!
They know when they are done. Too cute.ReplyDelete
I linked this post to Awww Mondays.
Have a fabulous day. Scritches to Lucy. ☺
Yes, they do know when it is time for a break in the action.Delete
Awww! She's growing up beautifully!ReplyDelete
Thank you, we think she's growing up just right.Delete
now this dog has a LOT of ENERGY! Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Lucy has more than her share of energy. Everything is a potential toy, and everyone is a potential playmate.ReplyDelete
Cocker Spaniels are the best. We had one when I was a kid and "Doop" was a great dog. You and Lucy are fortunate to have each other.ReplyDelete
I'm pretty sure I got the better end of this deal.Delete
These are great shots, Driller, but "the first shall be (or SHOULD be) last" to show how tuckered out the little guy was from chasing the ball!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2017/06/shades-of-purple.html
I probably should have inserted the first image again at the end, just to show that her day begins and ends pretty much the same.ReplyDelete
Lucy is a good looking dog, I love it when they get tired and "fetch" becomes "keep away"ReplyDelete
I will NEVER win a game of keep away with Lucy. She is much too quick for me.Delete
