Spring in the backyard means new smells and varmints even a senior dog like me can sniff out. The only grrr downside is when my nose is pulling me towards a smell, coming from behind a thorny rose bush. My brain doesn't always tell me ahead of time (i.e. before I've scraped my nose) that dogs shouldn't try to walk *through* bushes.
I blame my female for being too good at clearing paths for me in the living room, and when we're outside together. She herds me, as much as I herd her..BOL
