Laurelhurst Park is a living theater, free, and open every day. Yesterday we had a new episode.
This wonderful Labrador and his people were walking along the path in the Valley. This area is flooded in winter, but in summer it becomes the Off Leash area to let the other one green up. The people carried coffee mugs. The Lab carried a giant stick.
Seriously, this branch was about five feet long. The Lab couldn’t get the whole thing off the ground at once, but he was not going to give it up. He dragged it for quite a while, then stopped and looked up to his people.
“He wants you to throw it,” the woman said. So the man threw it, looking like an ancient warrior.
The Lab chased after it and brought it back, working very hard.
They all lasted about four throws, then they seemed to agree it was time to head home.Always something new to see.
