Yesterday I took Murphy to the dog park, intending to do some off-leash work with him. Unfortunately, when we got there, the gate was locked with no explanation. So, as we drove home, I decided to take him swimming again.
This time, I let him swim without the leash, since he's been good at staying with me lately, and since he can only get out of the water at one spot. As soon as I got his fetch toy out, his eyes lit up.
Here he is, fetching his toy.
Here he is, just swimming for the sake of swimming, after biting the fetch toy in half. He just kept going back in and paddling around for the fun of it.Good dog.
But them he had to end the day be being Murphy again, waiting until my guard was down and running off down the road. Bad dog!
I'm thinking that someone's going to be getting a new shock collar in the near future.
