One of the best things about summer is the long evenings you can spend outside. Gibson thinks so too. He loves it when we leave the door to our screened in porch open until we go to sleep, so he can just sit out there and watch the world go by...
And bark and anything and everything that walks onto our property of course.
But sometimes, that's not enough for the Gibbers.
I wants some grass, ma!
So, we go out for some fetch!
Gibson has gotten very good at fetch, but lately he's been calling it quits after about 3 tosses. Maybe he's losing some of his puppy energy finally? Or it's just too hot out.. Or he has a.d.d. and there's just too much else going on outside! Whatever it is, he still begs me to play fetch w/him and loves it while he's running around :)
We also love sitting on our patio in the summer and Gibson has been VERY good about keeping close OFF LEASH. Yep, I decided to let him have a little freedom and see how it went. He loves to sit near us and keep an eye on the yard...
When he gets up and looks a little too excited, we just tell him to stay and he does :) Good boy! When he wanders a little too far off we tell him to come back and he does that too. Is 3 years of training finally clicking with him?? Could be!
We also love our evening walks to the popcorn stand in the summer. Gibson especially loves it because he gets to eat popcorn the whole way home :)
How bout you? Do you and your dog spend a lot of time outdoors in the evenings now that it's summer?
