like the commercial says

$160 "training" collar
Carly and Sofie able to play in the backyard together.....PRICELESS!
I'm so excited that the 2 of them are able to go outside together
without Sofie running away!!
.
I continue to be amazed by the differences in Sofie and Gabby just because of the difference in their breeds. Gabby was a retriever and did not have to be taught to fetch. She would go get and bring back anything. Sofie doesn't retrieve.
.
As a pointer, it is amazing how aware she is of birds and movement. She can track birds in the yard and into trees. She loves to chase and flush out birds, leaves, squirrels, a ball. But she then stands at it (sometimes actually pointing) and looks back at you like "ok, I found it for you. are you going to come get it?"

Those dogs really are amazing!
We have the invisible fence thing with Blue, it is WONDERFUL! I wish everyone on our road had it, I get so sick of their animals being in my yard...it's like doggie playdate! ;)

The differences in the breeds are interesting, it makes me wonder how much of what I do is innate and how much is under my control.
