Ray has not been particularly active this past summer. I am guessing that having a thick double-coat in hot and humid conditions is a significant factor. Who knows what impact his tumor had on him earlier and, of course, he is not getting any younger. In fact it seems incredible that in the seemingly brief time that he has lived with us, he has gone from teenager … to “early” senior!
However, we did recently have a slight drop in temperature and so took him to a nearby conservation area. He had a great time exploring all the new scents, and taking us to the river!
He had a brief splash around, but was generally more interested in eating the good riverside grass! Such simple pleasures. We humans can learn so much from our canine friends Simple pleasures that is … not eating good grass!)!
