Colt has been here a while now… and he knows the routine.
He loves me and likes attention, although he’s not a snuggler, and while he asks for it, he still remains tense if you mess with his back half! He tolerates it, and then asks for more. He and Lucas have a truce, but Dally, in her crankiness, does NOT like him. No brotherly love there!
Quinlan and I made most of this video the other day, then I *had* to add the mud puddle scene! I have NEVER seen a dog do this! Lay there, yes. Drink gross water, yes. But he was actually blowing bubbles and enjoying the heck out of that little puddle! He went into it 6 or 7 times before he was finished and ready to complete his run. I ran him right to the creek where he did his routine again, and came out his glistening self! I remember thinking as he ran through the field that he looked more Irish Setter than English Shepherd!
I do believe Colt can make someone happy. I *really* can’t keep him. If you know of someone with some property and/or an outdoor job that Colt could go along with, please share this post and video.
