All three dogs were in a "mood" today. The mood to run! And a fine day for it it was.
Mags and Jack will exchange a look and then they will be off. If a straight run is long enough Jack can usually pass Mags up, but in a sprint she is more than likely to win. She has a funny gait: two strides and then a long, high leap. I always figure it is her "joy pace."
When they play their chase games she has the advantage of maneuverability. She can turn inside him on a dime and she'll let him close in and then do her turn, with him shooting off ahead and trying to brake and turn. It's like a dogfight between a B17 and an ME109. Almost as fun to watch as it is for them to do it.
Thus did they celebrate St Pat's.
