This is what all dogs should get to do.
Yesterday was my day off and I spent part of it at work! I took the dogs to the 600-acre farmed animal sanctuary where I work. There are parts of the sanctuary where none of the farm animals roam. The dogs and I hiked through meadows. It was so freaking beautiful. I saw three does, a buck, two king snakes, a bunch of lizards and some wild turkeys.
I love the turkeys here. Back at the old sanctuary, the turkeys had a short flight distance. You could get 15-20' from them. So could hunters. At the new sanctuary, the turkeys have a large flight distance. Like a 100'. I support this. :) They are also bigger. All the wild animals out here are bigger. The coyotes are larger, the deer are larger, but I'm hoping the mountain lions and black bears are actually tiny. Like invisible tiny, heh.
Anyway, here's the video of the dogs. You will get to see Mina wade ankle-deep in a spring-fed mini-pond. Celeste expresses her inner (actually outer too) wild dog. Both dogs will channel their inner puppy monologue at the end. Mina will voice this monologue outloud. She's a talker when she plays. I realize her age when she cannot keep up with Celeste and cannot make sharp turns like she used to. It hurts to watch. She is not allowed to age.
