Rob's Dogs Shep & Nellie Go To Dogwoods Resort - Part 2
When my wife and I travel, our German Shepherds either stay home and guard the house, or we sometimes leave Shep and Nellie in Garden Valley, CA, deep in the woods nestled between Auburn and El Dorado hills past the famous Forest Hill Bridge (most recently used in the Vin Diesel film “XXX).
During our recent trip to Hawaii, Shep and Nellie spent a week at their favorite place. One of the reasons Dogwoods resort is so great is they organize fun games like this “Nellie Look-a-like” contest.
The game was over when Shep tried to enter. Dummy.
Once the dogs are out as a pack roaming the 18 acres, I think I have figured out how Shep takes charge; he ignored the group. He just aloofly circles a small area, basically saying, “no, I don’t want to be where the rest of you are…”
Until all of the other dogs can’t stand it and come over to see what Shep is so interested in, and then they follow him into the woods. What a con artist.
Eventually the whole pack makes their way deep into the woods to frolick and play eventually culminating with Sage the yellow Lab climbing a tree, and Nellie thinking about it, and then wisely deciding not to.
Oh no…Shep can’t figure out which was is Nellie.
After a long day of chase, tag and butt-sniff, the doggies like to cool down and drink each other’s filth off of one another by taking turns in the pool…
…Until some jackass decides to plop down and hog the whole thing to himself while he relaxes.
