McKenzie and Wahya Visit!
Rich stopped by today to look at the brakes on the training cart that appeared to be locked. We want resistance for the dogs, but this was a little much. Not to mention that the humans were having a difficult time actually pushing the thing from place to place. He brought along three of his family members, two fuzzy ones, Kenzie and Wahya and then Lexy.
McKenzie and Wahya had a lot of fun running around in the backyard while Lexy kept a close eye on them. It was so good to see them both. They've been doing excellent with Rich's family and this is the first visit back since they went in August. They seemed to remember all of the boundaries and appropriate kennel manners and were very responsive to me but when Rich began to walk towards the gate looking for leashes, they both looked him straight in the eye and walked on either side of him to the gate. It was time to go home and they knew it! They have bonded extremely well to their new family. This was very heartwarming to see.
I'm happy to report also, that Rich was successful in fixing the sticking brakes of the cart and when it is cool enough, we'll be able to get back on the trail without having the work out just to get it to the hook off post.
