This is Olivia. Her friend at work is a loveable chocolate lab named Molly. The two of them run, jump, catch, leap, attack each other and generally rumble around in the yard of my husband's office almost every day, all day. On the weekends she is manic and mouthing everything in sight (retrievers will retrieve and/or mouth anything if bored or tense) unless she gets her requisite 1/2 hour of vigorous exercise. I am always looking for ways to get her fully exhausted on the weekends. When it's -15 outside I throw her ball up and down the stair well. She jumps 2, 3, 4 steps at a time to catch it...nice way to get that girl tired. I recently bought a tennis ball launcher and a frisbee for use outside as the weather warms up (it was a balmy 55 outside yesterday). Oh yah. This is what Miss Olivia looked like after an hour session outside catching a frisbee and running after launched balls. Fun time for all :)
