Stick Time

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Luce like to play “chase the stick”. We have not graduated to “fetch the stick” yet, but then again, we probably never will. Afterall, he is a Berner, not a retriever. After I throw the stick, Luce like to chase after it but when he gets to it, he chews on one end until I get there:

After about 15 minutes he gets tired and we make the long 5 minute walk back home. Since the field can be muddy in places, Luce gets his feet washed off before heading in the house. Here he is waiting for the hose:

While he does not like to have his feet rinsed with the hose, he really likes drinking from it so he gets the good with the not so good.

 

Luce Crusin’

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

Luce like to cruise around town with the wind blowin’ through his hair. He keeps on paw on the armrest or the ledge in case he needs to brace himself.

Here is my typical view in the rearview mirror:

Something caught his attention here since he is usually looking mostly forward.

Luce’s Rooster

Saturday, April 14th, 2018

Luce has taken a liking to the same toy rooster that our sweet Coco liked. This one is a little bigger than Coco’s but otherwise exactly the same. He has not been allowed to have the soft toys most of the time as he wanted to just bite off pieces and swallow them. Today, he played nice for quite a while and didn’t try to destroy it. He did want to play tug of war with it with me but I had to extinguish that quickly since he would have pulled it apart.

Still Lays Like a “Piccolo Cucciolo”

Saturday, April 14th, 2018

Luce still likes to lay like a “little  puppy”. He seems to be most comfortable in this position and when he does it on the tile floor, you can hear it because his claws scrape the floor as he flips his hind feet over.

Please keep good thoughts for, and send positive energy to, Luce’s brother Max who is feeling under the weather right now. Luce is very much looking forward to seeing him this summer in Lake Tahoe.
