Nuestro Arroyo

Frio and Willow in our backyard
Another day off from long hiking in order to give my ribs a break--I mean a "respite."  Dr. K and I took the Heelers on a walk in the arroyo next to our house; we went up and back 1 1/2 times before heading partially up our street.

When we got back, after I took care of a few chores, I played with Frio; his favorite toys right now are a rock-solid black Kong ball and a red bell-shaped Kong.  He's relentless in fetching, going back and forth until he's panting like a steam locomotive heading up Pike's Peak.

Yesterday afternoon we used those two toys to play with both Frio and Willow; the dogs are absolutely hysterical together.  Willow will grab both toys and try to hoard them, keeping Frio away until he makes a mad dash to snatch one.  The Heelers had me laughing so hard my ribs hurt twice as much.  :)
