This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

Miss Sophie is back from her visit to the boarding kennels. She was there two nights and I picked her up yesterday. She was well-behaved, and once she had noticed me she was happy to see me. Back in the house, she rushed everywhere, as if to make sure it was still the place she knew.
We had quite a few romps, and eventually she did do her lovely little wolf-howls the way she used to. She wasn't clingy at all - so I think this training exercise went very well.

We did go out this morning. It was raining, everything is very muddy, so I took her to the tennis courts. There, she had her run-arounds, chasing crows - and I saw that we still have to work very hard to get her to come back when called. Ah well - Rome wasn't built in one day either ...

Hello {Yma} - glad that Miss Sophie was pleased to see you and to be home again - though I never doubted she would be!
And I'm sorry to hear about the weather and ground conditions near you; still and all, romping around the Tennis Court areas is better than not romping at all!
Have you ever thought of using those "e" collars on Miss Sophie - not to shock her, they can be set to just vibrate, don't hurt the dog at all -and when you call her back, if she doens't respond promptly, hit the vibrate setting so at least she'll be distracted from what she's doing and will hear your call?
