Treat time!


Calvin, the grandson, is here!!! He is already busy spoiling us. I got a plum, scritches, and some extra grain. He spent some time staring at the aliens who are living in a paddock at the ranch, he thinks they are cute (go figure).
The DOR and I spent time sorting out this bag thing. Will she ever give up? Today I touched it with my nose twice and then she let me out of the paddock for the evening. Wow touch the bag get ungrounded! The DOR also walked up to me in the pasture and would scritch me, holding the bag where I had to look at it while she did that. I would stand like a good boy, ignoring the bag, get a few scritches and she would walk away. This process repeated several times. I think she must have gotten bored because the then started walking around the pasture flapping the bag and looking at the ground. We just all watched her and giggled. She then came back and stood about five feet away from me, holding the bag out, asking if she could give me a scritch. If I touched the bag with my nose, she would lower the bag and the scritch me a bunch, then she would step back. I think I am figuring out the bag and how to get the DOR to do what I want: I touch the bag and that means 'DOR scritch me.' Seems to be working so far.
I am going to spend the rest of the evening playing in the sprinklers, it is hot here. Tomorrow is supposed to be 104 degrees here. That is good and bad news. The good news is it will be too hot for the DOR to torture me for long, if at all. The bad news is I will look like a soggy noodle all day from staying in the sprinklers and shade to remain cool.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR even if they are really sweaty

Way to go Cactus Jack! Your training DOR good! Beware tho, DOR's are known to come up with more bad habits you will have to break her from! :)
I love seeing your life thru YOUR eyes, not DOR's! Clever! Enjoy the sprinklers tomorrow...it's gonna be a hot one here too!
