The Labraduo Romps

I mountain biked with both halves of the Labraduo this morning. They were overjoyed to be allowed to romp together with no leashes. That's been very rare since R's elbow surgery in January.

The beginning of our outing was pure mayhem, with the two dogs chasing each other in circles. It make me smile to see them so happy!
Soon, though, I decided that I needed to calm them down. That way, I that I could feel that I had them under control and I could protect R's elbow from his over-the-top exuberance. I asked them to "stand-stay" next to each other, and they did their most common pose, where R looks up and over Shyla's head at something off to the side.
You can tell how hard they'd been running by their tongues hanging out, despite the 30°F temperature early this morning.
Later, they both looked more composed, after the joyful frenzy of play and sprinting had passed.
The best news is that R has shown absolutely no signs of a sore elbow today. I am overjoyed.

The Labraduo wishes you a happy weekend!

  19. Horray for fun romping and healed elbows!

  23. I wish Piper had a running buddy these days! She has worn out many a companion over the years, and it's always so much fun to watch her interacting with another dervish-dog.
    R looks like such an elder statesman! So handsome.

  24. They are really a Beautiful couple.
    You should have puppies with them. Two great dogs what a bunch of great puppies it will be
