Mud Dabbers and Farm Dogs

In between training and competing, my dogs have a fair amount of down time just being dogs and doing whatever interests them.

Recently I had to go down and work on my rental farm, grading roads, clearing culverts and other hard work. The dogs got to run and play their hearts content.

Two full days of working on my avocado farm gave the dogs lots of free time to investigate and run the hills. Birds, coyotes and bobcats were all around.

After the weekend although the work wasn't all done the dogs were through. A tired dog is a happy dog.

Great exercise for the girls. Looks like Whisper found something "wonderful" to roll in.

What a nice place. I laughed at the picture of Whisper rubbing on the ground. Just the day before I was at a friend's who has a few acres for her horses. The boys got to play in her large back pasture that had some water. They were doing the same thing as Whisper. Lots of fun for them. :-)
