Stick!!! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

This is my stick!


Oh Stick!
When I roll in the grass
And chew on you
I feel very silly!


I love chewing on you!
And I love feeling silly!

I love you
Oh Stick!

I am an amazing Thing Finder! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here again!

In all of our training for our new job, which is called Nosework, my person almost forgot what an amazing Thing Finder I am! But then one of her people-friends asked to see me work and so a few days ago she made a video!

Here is my video!



My job is to find whatever the people lose when they are on a walk!

In this video you see me find the same thing twice. My person is clearly very clumsy. I found the Thing for her, and she lost it again almost right away! It is good that I was there to help find it!

The first time I find the thing you will see me on a narrow path, and so I am moving fast! The second time I am looking in an open area, and my person had walked all over this area a few minutes before. By walking all over my person put her scent all over the place, so I had to do big loops to make sure I didn't miss anything.

It is good that I am such an amazing Thing Finder! Otherwise that black, soft, whatever-it-is would have been lost forever!

Snoozing with my paws (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

My paws worked very hard today! They propelled me after a bunny! They shot me in a giant leap over a creek! They pranced me through the tall grasses!

Now my paws and I rest. I love nap time. Zzzzzzzzz.....

Smokey skies and an epic splat

Our province of British Columbia is burning. Forests are on fire everywhere. For many weeks there has been heavy smoke in the air. The sun is orange. And we spend most of our time inside because it hurts our lungs to breath too much outside.

We still get walks. But we are not rushed. I like this, because I get to go as slowly as I want.

So the first half of the story of this picture is the orange light from our smokey skies.

The second half of the story from this picture is my muddy paw. You cannot see my back paws, but they are even muddier.

Friends, the reason there are so many fires right now is because it has not rained in practically forever. Everything is very, very, very dry. There is no mud anywhere.

Except for one creek. In the winter this is a fierce creek, with much flowing water. When we cross this creek, Ojo and I make epic leaps.

Today I made an epic leap over the creek, just like I usually do. But something happened. My leap failed. I landed elbow-deep in the only mud in the entire city. I am not sure why my person was laughing so much? Now I have three paws to clean!

Ode to Chewing on a Stick

Chewing on a stick
Is very satisfying

My jaws feel strong
Wolf jaws
Hunter jaws
Stick chewing jaws


There is nothing more satisfying
Than lying in the grass
On a summer day
Chewing

Chewing on a stick

We are busy, thankyouverymuch

No, sorry, we do not want to do the posing thing for pictures right now. We are busy with these smells. Yes, this is a very pretty place. And yes, we are very pretty too. But you can admire the prettiness without us, thank you very much. We are busy.

ME in action! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

When Cobi shared our Beach adventure, she forgot to share these action pictures of ME!


I think she forgot on purpose. She is jealous that I am so agile!


She is jealous that I am such a good Ball hunter!


She is jealous of my mouth that snatches things out of the air!
(Cobi isn't very good at snatching things.)


She is jealous that I turn so fast that I make a splash!


I think she is just jealous period!


So she did not share all these pictures of ME. But I will share them, because I am amazing. And because chasing Ball at the Beach is one of my favourite things ever!!
