A Tad Longer (and Rockier)

Fly me to the moon
Got Becca out early this morning for a slightly longer trek, one that covered more rocky ground.  She seemed to handle it well.  Even though I'd like to go further I'm not pushing her rehab at too-rapid a pace.  At home we have to worry about her tendency to twirl.  Becca, you see, is a spinner--one of these dogs who expresses excitement through rapid rotation.  Now, whenever I give her a treat I have to discourage that behavior through a "No!" command.  It's a shame to damper her enthusiasm like that, but all for the best.

The supermoon was so bright last night--too bad we weren't camping in the wilderness.

A Nice Bushwhack
