A Day at the Races

Last Sunday, a good friend invited us to a lure course a friend of his operates.  A lure course is a long string pulled by a motor that drags little fluffy things around a track very fast. These are used at dog tracks to lure the dogs to run around the racetrack, but TiredDog-GoodDog.com uses it just to entertain pets.

Carlisle didn't understand it.  As soon as we released him, he ran over to the fence where Julie and Seamus were and pleaded to be picked up.  Ruby -- who absolutely loves toys -- took to it immediately.  Seamus, however, loved it the most.  Chasing things may be Seamus' greatest love, however it isn't one we let him indulge in because he'll raise all kinds of hell.  For once, we let him cut loose, and the result was that he went so hard he broke a nail and didn't even notice.  We wrapped it and let him go again.  The video below doesn't do full justice to Seamus' excitement, but it comes  close because a Mexican family was playing appropriate music at an adjacent birthday party.  I repeat that the wonderful soundtrack was not added in post.

I also worked on the chicken coop some more.  It's exciting to see it take shape, so expect some pictures of that in the coming weeks.
