Land update: the appraisal came through, and I have the okay to close...just waiting on the seller to get back into town from a trip so we can schedule the closing...maybe this week or next!!!
It was a little chilly today, but the lighting was nice enough to draw me outside and watch the dogs play for a few minutes. It's quite entertaining...Thane likes to grab a toy or a stick and play "keep away" with Thea. Here he is taunting her with a stick:
He really has a lot of fun trying to get her to chase him! :P
Watch out, Thane - here she comes!
Once Thea gets into the chase, they zig-zag all throughout the yard, taking advantage of natural obstacles to dodge around. Tight corner around a bush:
Looping around the other side of the yard...oops, looks like Thane lost the stick, and now he's chasing Thea!
Thea's not one to hold back; she gives it her all, even though she definitely can't keep up with Thane yet!
He helps her out...you can definitely tell that sometimes he's running slower on purpose so she can keep up:
This does backfire sometimes, lol. :P
Thea pauses for a break every once in a while...
...but is raring to go again if Thane dares come too close!
No wonder she takes such good naps!! :P
