It’s time once more for Follow Up Friday…winding up another week in the life of a retriever enjoying life as a family pet.
Let’s get right to your questions!
About “Weekend Wonders”…Sam says “hopefully you wore him out?”
He was only 8 months old to my 7 years…it was difficult!
I got lots of questions about Samplin’ Sunday!
Goose wants to know “what’s on the menu?”
Molly wanted to know what I licked?
Sugar asked if I saw something tasty and what was it?
JoAnn asks if I took a taste of grass.
The 2 (now 3) browndawgs asked, “so what did you sample?”
Notice the picture below and the opening photo…
We dogs have a scent gland in the roof of our mouths that connects to our brain…so “tasting the air” helps us to smell. Sometimes we can’t identify the scent, because it is something with which we aren’t familiar. Hope that answers your questions…I’m tasting the air!
On the “Final Chapter of Etiquette Training”, Amber daWeenie wants to know if “it’s better than a pawshake?”
It’s certainly less threatening!
The 2 now 3 browndawgs commented that it looks like spring is in full swing here.
My friends, spring is ending in the high country. Summer with all its sweltering heat and humidity is in full swing here in the low country!
Which brings me to another thought…seeing how much exercise I get racing around…and that I can cool down in the water or relax in the shade…in the summer heat and humidity you really need to carry plenty of water for you and your dog! Watch your dog closely so he/she doesn’t overheat. Heatstroke can be a serious problem for you both.
We avoid going outside during the heat of the day. Most exercising is early morning. Longer walks are in the evening, but since the heat lingers until after sunset we avoid any hard play.
Y’all come back now!
