Reckless

I often complain about how reckless Riley is when it comes to her "playtime".  While I will not throw the toy for her anymore, she still has to do her thing which is running, darting, play bowing, tossing and catching the toy herself, spinning, and more of the same. I cringe since she has been anything but free of injury (fractured hock and punctured joint that laid her up for a year), but it is a necessary evil. We recently went to a 4-day agility trial and she really needs to be reckless for a few minutes every morning to be at her best in the trial.  Thankfully, she was careful (or lucky) and ran sound all four days.

She is so cute flying around. That's great that she's not having any trouble with her hock or foot.

So great to see her running around... Data has a shoulder injury at the moment, so we're trying to keep her to walks and slow jogging -- I can't wait to let her run around again.

She is hilarious. That ear!

Riley is such a little crack up:) Hopefully her injuries are behind her now.

Were they birds (geese?) in the background? And Riley doesn't chase them? Beryl has decided she's not going to chase the seagulls at the beach anymore, she knows she can't catch them.

Yes, there was a bunch of geese in the background. She didn't even see them.... and they seem to know that.

I love this video of Riley & the general goofiness of greys when they play. It looks like she could give Mina a run for money in the zoomies stakes. Here's hoping she continues to enjoy the zoomies & remains injury-free.

I'm shocked that the geese weren't a part of the recklessness. She's too fun.
