Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

They can be such grizzlers, can't they?! :lol: But we can never think they don't communicate. It's just that it's mostly transmit and not much receive. I hope you manage to get your knee sorted.

I love the nesting lurcher pics!

Re: the barking/not barking at deliveries - it's possible that J feels more confident with both of you at home. Does he bark if OH is on his own?

I don't watch TV but a long time ago I used to read Anne McCaffrey, and there was a "Harper" in her books.

And what a lovely name Harper has!

JudyN, the tail-chasing creates an endorphin release activity and probably has been a lifetime coping mechanism for that dog.

That is so heartwarming, Jacksdad, and what is even better is that you are passing on your knowledge and helping so many people to help their dogs.

I'll look forward to that, Fundog. Watching bird dogs in action is amazing, and kudos to you for understanding the 'freeze and hold' part.
