Gracie is really getting big, she is full and beautiful, she weighs in the neighborhood of 35 pounds. Grace is energetic to say the least....the very least, she still tries to hook me with her hooks and man that is killer! My forearm looks like its gone through a meat grinder after playing, when she draws blood like she so often does I stop playing and let her know that hurts, she comes to lick my face then she is off and running again.
My question is how do I play with her without her using those hooks? She is full of life and I like playing with her, I just want to do it without drawing blood.
On another note, I am trying to get her to ride beside me on my bicycle, the first trial run we did pretty good, I only wrecked once. I want to do other things with her that challenge her as a Border Collie I want her to be able to use her in stinks any suggestions? Oh, Gracie is still not good with Bella but I keep them apart when Gracie starts the stare or using her mouth to nudge her. Bella isn't a dog that likes to play, ever! Grace wants to play ....always, lol go figure.
