Casey's Tale

Hopefully you’ve read my post about being more dog from a few days back.  Anyway, we went for a walk last night and Casey was really dragging.  I almost brought him home before we got out of our long and steep driveway, but I decided to be patient for a few more minutes when suddenly, there’s Casey, flashing past Jet, Bode and me, down the road and through the woods.  More deer.  My immediate thought is that darn 5+ foot wide ditch.  I mean really, since he wasn’t hurt, his leap and resulting faceplant the other night was funny, but we don’t need more practice.  I called out to him but he never slowed down.  What he did do is change his angle so rather than needing to leap the ditch, he ran down into it and up the other side.

Good boy Casey!

    Murphy was a golden-mix with a front amp – so I can totally relate!!! We have a park behind our yard, so he often ran the fence when other dogs were in the park – and often face-planted, too! He would just pop right back up & keep right on running, no worries!
    He loved the snow the best – I think because he knew he had more support when he fell. It seems like the snow would make it harder to run, but I think he didn’t have as far to fall plus had some padding lol
    Thanks for the laugh!

    That Casey is pretty unstoppable, wow!

    It’s good that he’s so energetic, that is wonderful. As you go on walks with him, you want to make sure he returns with at least a little bit of energy left. Every time a dog sits down during or right after a walk, or can’t make it home, that’s a sign he’s gone too far. So maybe cutting back a bit will go a long way toward making sure he doesn’t get into any injury troubles. We want him around for a long, long time (although the deer are probably thinking something else!).

      Thanks. Casey almost never sits down on a walk, but he will roll in the grass. We generally just go one way, and Ann comes and picks him up. That way I can continue on with the other two. There was one time Ann said he was exhausted when he got home.

      I try to pay close attention, and call Ann as soon as he starts looking back (looking for her).
