You Decide

The snow that has been on the ground here since before Thanksgiving has finally melted. I went out to rake a few leaves, and Ricky all-out herded the rake non-stop for at least 15 minutes. He got so tired he had to quit all by himself. 

Then when I vacuumed just now, he was too worn out to herd the sweeper.

Genius or bad bad trainer?

Is rake herding toy play or personal play?

Chewy goes NUTS over the rake. It's quite annoying, but a very good way to wear him out.

So, I'm going with "genius". And I think it counts as BOTH personal and toy play!

Denny HATES vacula - the vacuum cleaner, and trash bags, and boxes he goes into spinning mode and barking his head off.

Java tries to kill the rake and the vacuum. It's annoying to me. I should be a better trainer but I figure I can use it ti proof somethings.

Wow he must have really wore himself out!

Our yard is a big mud pit right now!

Eva still chases and barks at my vacuum cleaner! :(

I vote for genius.

Katie hates the vacuum, trashbags, etc. Have never raked with her..but I'm guess she hates rakes too.

Genius, obviously! Herding is great fun!
What a lovely picture of you, Ricky!
