About two weeks ago, I came home to find this note from the amazing Dog Walker Bill laying on my kitchen counter where Bill and I exchange daily notes.
I don't think I've shared much about how much we love Dog Walker Bill, so now is a good time to say that - we simply couldn't survive without him.
In addition to simply taking care of everything we need on a daily basis, Bill often plans additional fun activities. He and Lindsay play regularly - whether its the tennis ball, Frisbee, or lure. Lindsay loves them all - so a chance to get to see her actually chase the lure on an actual course was something I didn't want to miss.
We drove out to Carthage Downs yesterday afternoon. Carthage Downs is a HUGE, completely fenced in field where they had a lure course set up. A lure is basically a white plastic trash bag on a string mounted a few inches off of ground level that is set up to run all around that HUGE field. Did I say the field was HUGE - the time it took for Bill and his friends to set all of this up for us to come out and run was huge - and it's one of those - you gotta love this do it kinds of things because Lindsay ran the entire circumference of that field in not much more than a minute.
We had a lot of fun watching the antics of little Clara - a pup with a great deal of energy and a serious aversion to leaving the field and meeting Ike. Clara and Ike are two of Bill's other clients. Most of all, we just enjoyed spending time with our friend Bill - and Lindsay got a ribbon!
