|Willow and Frio|
Just after we made a left turn into Right Branch Arroyo I let the Heelers off lead, and they both responded brilliantly; of course I had to use treats (Pupperoni) to keep them nearby. Nevertheless, Willow paid attention superbly, and whenever I called her back she responded immediately; and because Frio watches her closely at all times he, too, followed suit.
We all enjoyed our morning hike immensely today due to a number of factors, not the least of which was the beautiful weather. My hope, though, is that we're not already in a permanent warming trend, and that we'll get to experience more cooler days before slipping into the Chihuahuan Desert spring and summer.
