    Willow has three dogs she plays with through a fence, a Jack Russel terrier, a standard poodle and a lab. All three of them are happy to see her when she comes along and she manages to coax each of them into running with her.

    This clip is from today's afternoon walk. This poor lab has some sort of leg problem but he still wants to play with her and they seem to be having a lot of fun. Willow waits for the lab to catch up and goes slowly for him just as she does when playing with us human pack members. She "talks" to him the whole time, her high pitched come and play bark. For the poodle, she runs full out as he's in good shape.

    Ahhhh, I was missing my daily dose of Willow stories/photos. Love how she tailors her play to the partner. That was a very sweet video.

    And here are a couple of clips of Willow playing through the fence with Dylan, a standard poodle. She runs much faster for him than for the lab. Forgive the shaky video but there was only me to hold the camera and I was dodging getting wrapped up in Willow's lead. She's very, very enthusiastic about anyone who is willing to play with her.

    As soon as I started playing the videos Devon came rushing in from the other room and started running around my office chair and barking. Even Toro (my cat) came in and jumped up on the desk to see what was going on. :hilarious:
