"dogs can't look up"

"Big Al says dogs can't look up."*

This is untrue. Dogs do look up. What is in question is whether dogs *should* look up. Particularly, should BOTH of them look up at a squirrel in a tree while racing around the tree, hoping the squirrel will come down.

If the dogs wish to avoid a rather painful high-speed collision, my verdict is that at least one of the dogs should try looking where he or she is going. Both dogs have now retired to their beds nursing their bruises.

LOL! Priceless! Are your dogs now feeling embarrassed, as well as headachey? :D

I don't think my dogs have sufficient self-awareness to be embarrassed. They have no grand self-image to let down - unlike the cats!

Oh dear! Poor Mollydog & Az, I'd like to think they'll remember not to do the same thing next time, but I have the feeling that the urge to chase squirrels probably overrides any learning from past mistakes...

They do sometimes learn from their mistakes (when I got Mollydog, she used to trip over *all the time* because she was used to running on dead flat sand, and unexpected things like grass and clumps of heather threw her completely) But I think you are right - squirrels are just too exciting!

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    Thank you! I may try it later today then.

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
