She works for tennis balls.
The dogs are having a busy month. Yes, there are 2 weekends of dog shows coming up. But during most of their their days when they're not busy with agility or running around on the beach or in the forest, Otterpop, Ruby and Gustavo are ranch dogs. Which means they laze around on the deck and snooze while the horses and the people do all the work.
This month, we are moving all the horses to a new ranch! The new ranch is actually located on the exact road where Otterpop was captured as a truck chasing puppy 7 years ago, which is only 5 minutes from our favorite beach and only 21 minutes from our house! Otterpop is in heaven, because ranch dog is her true calling and she is getting down to business monitoring tractors and trucks and workers and the pasture full of sticks and turkeys as we prepare to move the horses.
Otterpop is a dog that needs a job. The other dogs are pretty happy to lay around and frolic in the sun. Otterpop, though, is a serious little worker bee, taking care of business. I have never seen her happier than she is right now, working away getting the new place ready. What would be ever do without Otterpop?
