Finally Mama Jo opened the flood gates. You know what they say…..the grass is always greener on the other side. There are SO many smells and things to investigate…… and destroy. This tree is just the right size for us! Thank goodness for corners. We need good hideout places. Busted!Sometimes we take a little breather and watch someone else get into trouble.The best part of having our freedom is WE CAN RUN!! Freedom of movement is all we ever asked for. The best part about running is getting someone else to follow you. We don’t know why it is so fun it just is. This is called the sneaky run. Hide behind a wall, be real quiet, get someone to follow you, then run in a line. And poof! We are in a whole new world now. We are over on the OTHER side of the yard. We have never been here before. Life is heavenly when free.Some things are chewable and some things are not. We are finding that out.I know you know we can jump. Because we have jumping blocks in the Puppy Palace. But we are learning to jump in thin air too. Watch this….. Perfect form huh? Another thing we like to do to pass the time is play…..of course. What dog doesn’t play? Rrrrrruff and tumble is the best on OUR new soft lawn. But we play on concrete too. You want to be on the top when playing not the bottom. Riata is taking notes. Just passing by minding my own business.We are learning social skills too. I am not so sure about this. How long do I stand here?Besides, running, jumping, playing and destroying we also do SOME exploring. But then when the big new world looks too scary we come running back. Right to that place of comfort and security. THE LAWN.Feeling much better now. I got a little dusted up over there.It is best to stick together as a group when we explore. Someone has to keep watch while the exploring and investigating is going on. You never know what could happen.Howdy is a mighty good watch dog.After about 30 to 40 minutes we start looking for cover. We like pots. When we find cover we get so comfortable we start to fade. And start dreaming about dreaming. Believe it or not we instinctively know how to get back to our Puppy Palace. We don’t know why we want to go there we just do. By hanging out at the door we get the best of both worlds. Dreaming about dreaming some more.Real dreaming.
