Summers in Texas are hot. That is just a fact of life here. Pit bulls, at least my pit bulls, are not summer dogs. Gus is especially not a summer dog. Anything over about 70 degrees and he no longer performs. He's looking for shade, asking for a straw hat and lemonade, followed by a siesta. This evening the temperature was 81 degrees and I thought we might try a bit of agility practice in the shade. Nothing very strenuous, just a little circle work and practicing fast downs. Gracie was all over both of those games - after all the reward is food. Gracie is very food motivated. I had her working for her kibble, but I believe she would probably work for small rocks. Gus declined the game - 81 degrees and kibble? Not worth it.
Thanks, but I'll just practice my down stay right here.
It is entirely possible kibble was dropped in the grass. I must locate all of it, even if I'm hot!
It is not even June yet. It's going to be a hot summer, once again...
