Coonhound Mornings

So, before having a yard, Bella was strictly a non-player. Daisy would try but a few snarks from Bella and that was over.  Now, the girls have room to stretch their legs. It started with chasing. Bella likes to run and she and Daisy would chase each other. Now, its like I have a whole new dog in Bella! She wrestles and gives it right back to Daisy. Daisy growling during play used to scare Bella-not anymore! It has been so awesome to watch Bella earn to relax a bit more and to enjoy playing.

There are a few things about this video to watch out for.  First, my camera ham Daisy is distracted by the camera. She has to stop and make sure no treats are being handed out before continuing to play.  Second, near the end I love how Daisy just flops down like a kid pretending to die playing ‘Cowboys and Indians’.  Third, the sounds of the birds. I like waking up to that sound.

  2. What joy!! Your new house could be a one room shack and it would be worth it just to have that beautiful yard for the girls!! How awesome that they are coming out of their play-shells!!

  3. What a lovely video! Just play, play w/o discussion, simple joy. They look great!

  4. Beautiful video. I love watching zoomies!

    One thing I’ve learned over the years is how stressful being in close quarters with another dog can be–if they aren’t raised to enjoy it from the start.

    I’m not surprised to hear that Bella discovered the joy of play when she got a large, fenced in yard. Bella can relax and have a good time knowing that if Daisy gets too bossy, she has room to just walk away.

    It’s a beautiful thing to see a dog learn to play.
