Hovawart on the Hunt

Viva faced with the problem of choice. What would it be? Duck? Or stick? She couldn't make up her mind:


Kenzo - coming in from the right - steals the stick. What was a dilemma before, just became an easy choice. Duck vs. Kenzo-with-Stick is a no-brainer:


The stick is gaining more importance quickly, Viva goes into full pursuit mode:


And we have a winner, Kenzo returns to shore in retreat:



Some decisions are not so difficult after all for a - former? - resource guarder. But hey, those ducks are still there, maybe Viva could have it all?

  1. Have her stick and eat ducks too? A stick in mouth is worth two ducks in the river? I'm trying to come up with one, but they just don't flow right....

  2. Hi Y'all,

    Hoppin' by to say "hello" and see how y'all are doing. For me, a retriever, what to fetch would be a no brainer!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    1. Oh dear, I am no retriever expert, I guess that would be the ducks then? You have a great weekend too!

  6. Leo - I read your post on my iPhone yesterday while getting ready to head out on our walk at the dog park. It made me laugh out loud, In fact, I giggled all the way to the the park thinking "Why can't Viva have it all?"

    I loved the pictures and the one line narrations. Funny how dogs an be so keyed on one thing (a stick) and another (the ducks) at the same time isn't it? I love seeing them sort out what they will choose in their own minds. No wonder we love them so.

    1. Ha! That made we smile too. I love it when they think on their own and start to problem-solve. Awesome to witness :)

  7. It looks like those smart ducks are staying just out of Viva's reach. I imagine that Viva comes home good and tired - not only from the physical exercise, but also for the mental workout.

    1. The ducks always came back, I think they were teasing Viva a little. A dangerous game. She came home good and tired, and the ducks remained unharmed :)

    1. Thanks! Should have switched the iPhone to video though, but I always find out to late. Maybe we try again one of the days :)
