Hamish is getting bigger and we have regular
sparring matches to see who is the bravest. He is very energetic and his running is getting faster but I am still better at catching balls!. Unfortunately he has a habit of getting me by the leg or neck or rump and I have to let go of the ball to deal with his pesky hanging on. It is a very effective technique as he then picks up the ball or toy and takes it back to the biped. the only good think is that we both get a treat for effort!
Hamish is not so keen on water so I get to paddle in peace and quiet which is very satisfying. It is lovely to explore waht is under the top of the water and I often find lovely sticks which I bring out and run about with. Life is great when you find a good stick!
