|Left the CR-V at the end of Tellbrook|
On the way back to Whitey the CR-V we encountered a woman trekking with her Yellow Lab. When both Frio and Willow barked at them I explained to the woman that they were new acquires; she said her Lab puppy was "stupid," and all she wanted to do was play. Perhaps in the future, if we meet up with them again, we'll see how the dogs interact. I think Frio has a good disposition toward strange canines, but I'm unsure about Willow.
After lunch I let the Heelers into the backyard to roughhouse for a bit, after which they both lay down in the sun and relaxed. I was having a cup of instant coffee, so it felt good to sit out there with them while they enjoyed the sunshine. When we all came back inside I sat on the floor with Willow who allowed me to trim all of her rear toenails and a few on her front paws. Some real progress on this issue.
