Elvis had his first elevator ride yesterday while doing therapy work at the rehab center. He didn’t know what to make of the floor when we began moving, but did very well and was treated with a large hot dog afterwards.
I gave the guys some free time in the pasture yesterday afternoon, and Mia and Doc got on a Pheasant. They flushed a rooster while hunting the ditch bank and I was happy to see both steady to wing, holding steady until I released them. Since Doc has been doing so well with the “whoa” command in the house, I wanted to see how he did out in the pasture – and off lead to boot. He did a great job, and I think it helped that Mia was with him. In any case, either on or off lead, he’s holding his “whoa” longer – perhaps a minute or so.
Elvis and Sophie got the next shot at running the pasture and Elvis briefly went on point where the Pheasant had flushed, before deciding that the bird was gone.
Elettra and Dakota were last, and Elettra did it the easy way by pointing the birds in my loft.
