While this is not exactly the right time of year for outdoor ball games, various balls do have year round applications … especially when you have a Ray living with you! While even his playing is treat motivated, he obviously has a lot of fun chasing down a ball.
We are both hoping that by reducing his meds, his energy level will increase such that he will play just because he wants to play, rather than seeing games as simply reasons to earn treats.
We were out walking Ray the other day, when we bumped into a lady who we had not seen for quite a few years (not long after Ray moved in with us). She was in pleasant shock at the change in him! In fact it took her a brief moment to grasp that it really was Ray … and not some other dog!
I wonder what the future will reveal!
