Mondays represent new beginnings. All the dogs were rested, having stored reserves of energy. From the moment they left the gate, the dogs were running in wide circles exploring the space they know so well.
The dogs each gave way to play, mostly in the form of chase. Alma Bear was the chasemeister. First it was her best friend Blue, then our very own Mooloo. She even tried chasing Toby who played dead, before moving onto Frannie and another small dog. No matter how fast she moves, Frannie moves still faster. And the fastest of them all is Starr. "Run, Starr, run!" we chime in.
Toby adores Frannie and she him. The two court each other every day, dancing in circles and play wrestling.
Chica's loves her one-on-one time playing fetch and doesn't have a problem playing alongside Toby.
There's Blue and Mooloo who play like puppies, each taking turns being pinned. Starr frolicked with Toby which is great to see, but perhaps the sweetest scene of all was watching Toby kiss and then play gently with a girl whose energy was spent.
