Not long after entering Right Branch Arroyo I let both Heelers off lead, and they were marvelously well behaved, stopping often to look back at me and to retrieve the treats they seem to crave.
Several times we stopped for a longish break, and Frio and Willow exhibited great patience in lying down to wait for the command to get going again. I felt extremely happy with their behavior this morning.
