Today Clio came with me in the kayak for a 45 minute paddle upstream on the Slocum River in South Dartmouth, MA. She was very curious at first, and almost tipped over the kayak a couple of times. However she did settle down, and we had an uneventful hour and a half in the boat. Awesome.
She’s also learning — with the assistance and judicious feeding of raisins — to go up and down stairs. We had one frantic moment this morning when, while scratching her face, she knocked herself off the dock and onto the sand below. No apparent damage, and she’s feeling fine. She’s hot and not enjoying the sun too much; at the moment she’s curled up alongside her crate, resting against the wet towel we draped over her hidey-hole.
She is scratching her face and/or her collar a lot, and we’re not sure if she’s getting used to it, or frustrated that it’s there, or if she’s experiencing some sort of bug biting her there and making her miserable. Any thoughts?
