We went back to bed after taking them to the Rochester airport, we got home at 5 a.m. and couldn't see any reason to start our day that early!
Our "second" morning was spent outside with our second cup and rhubarb muffins. The dogs were happy to finally be up and outside, it had been a confusing a.m.routine for them.

|he always catches and returns it dutifully, but sometimes its not pretty|

Later in the day Dave and I joined Cindy P and Geneva at a Lure Coursing Event in the small town of Hemlock, near one of the Finger Lakes.
|did I forget to mention Glory came along??|
Lure coursing is a sport usually reserved for sight hounds, but is becoming a fun activity for dogs of all sizes and breeds. The idea is to have the dog chase a mechanically operated "lure" around a prescribed course of hard, fast curves. Most dogs take to it after a few trials and really seem to enjoy the wild run. Some even figure out the course and start trying to cut corners to reach the lure before it gets away! Lots of fun to watch the seasoned dogs as well as the ones just learning the ropes.
