My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

This probably doesn't help our neighborly relations

This is a pretty common activity in the afternoons in our house. Somewhere between 2 and 4, the dogs get the syrup in them and demand a walk. On a day like this, when it was 95 degrees and 90% humidity, a walk at 4:30 was not very appealing. Instead, John tried to appease them all with a game of fetch.

Note in the video that all three dogs are included in the "fun", but it's really only Shadowfax who is attempting to play fetch. Shaak Ti is playing her defensive back position - ready to chase the dog that is chasing a ball (she's done this for years with many other dogs playing fetch). And Tito is lurking in the background, ready to put in his two cents worth if and when the puppy makes it past Shaak Ti; this is why the puppy got her stitches.

In any case, the amount of barking is typical, and I know for a fact that even with all the windows and doors shut, the barking is pretty loud and clear outside.
