And Then There Was
~ Part One
Bounding over soybeans
It’s been a big year for Ringo – we moved from an apartment to an acre of land outside of town this summer. It took some time to get used to the new sounds and Nick’s much busier and ever changing schedule, but he loves frolicking in his yard and finding good smells to roll in. Still, his favorite place in the world is visiting his human grandparents on “the farm,” 300 acres of corn and soybeans not far from Lake Michigan.
Short and long tails – Ringo following Oakie around his fields
The farm includes family who adore him just like a human grandbaby, his favorite canine elders Oakie (11 years old, also a Weim) and Buddy (a 10-year-old cockapoo), and mowed paths around the fields closest to the house – perfect for running at breakneck speed. The only part of the farm he isn’t keen on is the horse. He snuck into her pasture once and barked up a storm right to her nose. Lucky for Ringo, Cindy is 37 and has seen his kind many times, and couldn’t care less.
(Oakie looms over his “nephew.” Not pictured: Ringo’s tail thumping on the floor in delight at the barking)
Ringo was requested as undocked. We do accommodate clients wanting the smooth coat undocked (European Style). There is a very specific protocol. It takes planning, and you have to jump through all the hoops to get one from us.
Part Two of Ringo’s post coming soon!
