Popular Post kjwarnold Posted April 3, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted April 3, 2017 (edited) The weather was great yesterday so we took Kirby and Phinney out to hang on the dock for a while. It was Phinney's first chance to spend some real time loose out there. Until we know he can safely swim to shore by himself if he falls in, he'll wear a life jacket. It didn't seem to bother him a bit, unlike Kirby who slinks around for a while after we put it on him. Lucky for Kirb, he only has to wear it when we ride the JetSki! We practiced our Sit/Stays. It's a great practice area because there are lots of distractions. You can see Kirby is focused on something in the distance; its ducks on the beach. This was a huge challenge for him since chasing ducks off the beach is his job! Phinney is in obedience class now, so he did great with his Stay out there with ducks, fish jumping and boats going by. Speaking of fish, Phinney got his first look at fish coming up for bait around the dock. He was pretty shocked at Kirby's barking/shrieking at them but got used to that. The huge carp coming up to feed scared him! Maybe because they're almost as big as him! I'm sure he'll get used to it all quickly. He loves to snorkel for rocks and things in the shallow water on the beach, so I think fishing will come naturally to him. We're hoping the spirit of Packy will infect him with the love of fishing!
