Duck leg dinner
Outdoor World sells these great foam ducks, for training retrieval skills. At the dog lake, the dogs love to swim and bring this wonderful thing back. Lexik launches from the shore and goes after Duck with determination. Nick "land sharks," ankle deep in the water, right under the roots along the shore, trying to get a headstart on the duck fetching. Some of the dogs are happy to jump in and swim along, watching the game. Madison lurks onshore. Her ploy? Grab Duck and eat it. Shake it, kill it, destroy it.
Duck has held up pretty well, with chunks of varying sizes missing from one day to the next.
Today however, the death bell tolled for Duck.
Madison came home with a drumstick. She is such a naughty dog.
H-Mom is looking for retrieval ducks on eBay.
PS. H-Mom is working on a blog about summer grooming. If you have a photo of the perfect summer dog cut that you would like to have published (and she'll put a link to your blog, too, if you want!) just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org ... she can just use one and she's put herself on a deadline, lol ... Madison is amused.
