Dobro report: He wanted to play yesterday afternoon, so he trotted into the house and did the butt-in-the-air laughing/goofy play solicitation posturing to me, then scrambled outside. I have to reward such happy communication, so I had to go out and play with him. It's so easy! I just stand there and wave a stick while he charges around the yard kicking up mud, or else I pretend I'm going to catch him by making a fake capture pose while he charges around the yard kicking up mud. LOL!
