Kate W. in Missoula, who adopted blind Luke from us several years ago, just sent us this video of Luke picking strawberries. Kate wrote,
"For weeks now I've been trying to get a video of Luke picking strawberries. I don't know when he discovered this but one day I caught him mowing through my strawberry plants eating all the red or barely red berries. And I finally got a short video of it!
At first I thought of all the ways I could keep him out of my strawberries, a little fence, putting them up high, scolding him, etc. Then I realized what joy he got out of finding these tasty little morsels all on his own (you can see his tail wag a bit in the video when he finds one)... and I decided... fine... I've had two strawberries all season and Luke has eaten the rest and that's the way it will be.
Now I look forward to watching my boy muzzle around looking for ripe berries every time he goes outside."
So keep your eye on that strawberry dangling there on the left. It will quickly disappear!
New Shelter Challenge Begins
The latest round of the Shelter Challenge is underway and runs until October 13. You can vote every day here. To search for us, type in our name, Rolling Dog Farm, and Lancaster, NH 03584.
They have redesigned the contest site and made other changes. Please note that I cannot help with technical or voting problems. I also do not have an "inside track" to anyone at the Shelter Challenge, and I don't know any more about the contest than anyone else does. So if you find yourself having issues, please consult their FAQ page here and their Rules page, which is a pop-up you can find linked on this page.
Thanks for your votes!
