How do you know when an Aussie is fully recovered from surgery?  He acts worse than he did before surgery.  Scout is in need of some serious exercise, mental and physical.  He is getting into everything everywhere in the house.  He stole a 10″ bread knife yesterday and started to chew the wooden handle, he is getting on the counters, begging for food, stealing socks, general mis-behaving.  Yesterday was his first day playing at Bowdoin College fields after 3 weeks and he had a great time running and wrestling with all the other dogs.  He had a good wrestling match with a golden, Katie, that was almost his age and also just recovered from spaying, the match lasted a good 10 minutes.

Starting our next obedience classess tomorrow night (after a 4 week break) and these are different, billed as a way to beat the winter doldrums, we will be  learning tricks, rally-o, freestyle, and some other things.
