Hi, Everybody -
The little Hookie Roo is lying on the bed sleeping. I'm in a chair next to it in a room we rented for a few weeks in Boulder while we look for a place. She is OUT COLD. I had to stop her swimming today because all of a sudden she was shivering so hard. Of course, she wanted to keep swimming. She's learning to retrieve. Until a couple of days ago she wouldn't keep fetching past a couple of tosses, but now she wants to go more and more. And, she's starting to get the idea that she should bring the stick or ball back to me.
She's doing well. There's one minor behavioral issue developing that I need to nip in the bud. She pesters some other dogs too aggressively to play. When their humans don't understand dog language they mistake it for aggression. It's not - but it's still not good manners. So the little Kahoo is going to have to spend a little more time on the leash during her beloved park time until she learns to calm down. If anyone has any thoughts, please let me know.
A couple of you mentioned that you've read four parts f Roo's story. There's a fifth part that isn't on Life with Dogs, it's tucked away in my facebook page. Go to http://www.facebook.com/TheDogintheClouds
and then click on the Notes section, and you'll find it there.
Of, if you go to that page and click on About, all the links are there. Have a look at the video for The Dog in the Clouds, if you haven't seen that. If there's anyone you think might enjoy the Roo stories, send them the link to that About section so they can find everything in one place.

Thank you all again for all your good wishes.
