A+ for Heelers

Willow and Frio
Although we saw people walking dogs on the drive over to Tellbrook neither of the Heelers overreacted.  There was very little pulling on their leads as we made our way up to Second Arroyo.  When we encountered Pamela and Terry coming from the other way Willow lay down and whimpered once, and Frio had absolutely nothing to say.  Pamela said to them, "Good boy and girl.  You two will be used to us in no time."

On the drive back home we passed two people walking dogs in the neighborhood.  Neither Heeler reacted.  It was such a nice respite from their behavior, I pray it's the new normal, though I suspect otherwise.

Another nice thing about today's trek:  a constant breeze provided for excellent evaporative cooling.
