I love dogs that run! Even though Sophie's owner says she's a little testy around other dogs, a good hard run can fix a lot! We came across the same dog that we met last week and not a peep out of Sophie. We ran past a property with two dogs that would have loved to fence fight, and again, Sophie didn't even flinch. We passed by countless people and she just trotted along beside me! On another note, Sophie was extremely hot today, at about twenty minutes in, she was lagging behind. We found a sprinkler and I let her off-leash to go cool off. She sat in the sprinkler water for a good five minutes before we moved over to a shady spot to sit down. About fifteen minutes later I cooled her off with a hose but she wasn't interested in drinking from it. We did quite a bit of walking after 30 minutes in. She had one poop and it was extremely runny, nothing to pick up even though it was rather a lot. Tummy troubles??? :( Sophie's picture is of her wiggly bum in the sprinkler, scratching her face, pure bliss!
