Road trip wrap-up

Other than getting over her resistance to jumping into the car, there were other highlights to our road trip to Scottsdale (Arizona) last weekend. We were there for a conference, and although the presentations didn’t interest her much, Kyndall got her own badge,

She got many opportunities to practice her Under and did well at that.

Far more interesting to her were the walks she and I took around Scottsdale. Folks there appear to have a culture of leaving water bowls out for dogs (as they do many places in America). But I’ve never had a dog who took much interest in water bowls; most have disdained drinking from them. Kyndall, in contrast, found them fascinating and insisted on lapping out of every one she spotted…

Even more diverting than the drink-ups were the bunny rabbits who abound on the grounds of the place where we stayed.

Kyndall was not permitted to chase any of them. But they smelled divine!

Still, she seemed awfully happy to see Tucker again.

Home sweet home.
