Looking at Val's response was a bit of a dope slap.
Whew, OK this is an old problem with throwing the frisbie for Barker the Elder the First. Like 1990s. Long line on doggo. Long line on doggo. How could I forget that? Especially when it saved the relatively expensive, nice soft gummy frisbies from being reduced to rubble. You don't need to hold the long line. Your throw can go out further than the line reaches. You can , however, pick up the long line and call doggo back with success. That is how you get the retrieve to work when it has become keep away.... Maybe that will work for you Bev.
My experience is that often higher doses of a product help, as well as combination products. Many glucosamine products do not have a good mix of ingredients, and they are often at low doses, so they are ineffective.
I just had the best day ever with the pups. First Sasha 'helped' me with all my housework. The beds still not made but we had a blast laying there while I tickled her toes. She thought that was just the funniest game ever and so did I. I was so thankful to have all the time in the world to play this game with my little girl.
After that we went out front for a while. I checked on the garden while the pups ran circles around the center bush. I so love to watch them play together.
Enough of the front, we then journeyed to the back where we played ball and ran and just had tons of fun.
Returning to the front later, I sat up their little swimming pool and they had a blast with that. They also loved chasing the water from the hose. I was reminded of just how happy a pup can be when their all covered in mud It was a hot day so I knew they would dry just fine.
After they rested and dried some I loaded the two into the car and off we went for ice cream!!! I got them each a cup that they had to wait to get until we got home. I had a cone, well, I started out with a cone. I offered Sasha a lick, then a lick for Kody, me a lick, but when I brought it back to Sasha for a lick she took all the ice cream off in one big bite I'm thinking she didn't want to share it with Kody funny girl.
And now I'm going to head outside with them and watch the sun go down over the ocean. Life is great.
