Portia Is Five!

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 12 July 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Just like last year, she still loves being outside especially on nice sunny days. We've had some good weather lately. She stays outside for hours at a time.

She will chase her tennis ball once or twice and then she switches to Keep Away. That paw on the ball is her challenge to try to get the ball. If you make a move toward it, she grabs it,runs, and challenges again. She likes doing this a lot longer than I do. ;-)

My friend had a poodle who loved looking. After dancing to Dani, he went to see where the ball fell and then started looking for it completely. After a while, he went straight to the ball and put it in for a re-throw.

She is young! (and very beautiful) but the game is forever. Nuss (my old friend, a German shepherd, aged 12) currently suffering dysplasia, but still wants to play ball.
