It's called Macks Creek.
The creek was small but it was there. Just enough in some spots to get Rye muddy. He loves to lie down in water, muddy or clean.
He has been known to run the exact opposite direction from where we are though and I never thought it was him not listening. He just gets confused!
I try not to call him unless I have to because I think it adds to the confusion. I have seen him running towards us from a distance, I call his name and he turns around and starts running the opposite direction. Like he heard my voice coming from that direction!
I have found that cupping my hands around my mouth to call really helps focus the sound better.
As good as Rye is off leash, Indi is better. I never ever have to wonder where she is. She stays very close. She won't even go down to the creek without me going too if it's off the trail a ways. Rye will at least go get a drink on his own! Rye is good at finding water.
Indi has developed much more confidence out in nature than when we first got her. I have not had her spook at anything for a very long time and she just seems comfortable out there where she didn't always before. We have not met deer yet but I tend to think that she would be cautious of them and not give chase.
Oh, how Rye loves to wallow! He is so cute when he finds that perfect little watering hole and he sinks down in.
