Learning to fetch

Today Spritzer has been really quiet – I think there was an emotional set back at finding himself outside the yard in the dark last night – don’t know how long he’d been out there.  Like most teenagers he just thinks he wants to be free, but likes knowing that we are here watching out for him. Yesterday, Camillo played with him about 2 hours tossing him a tennis ball that he would pounce on and run off down the hill, then drop it and run around the hill and come back up a different set of steps, Camillo would patiently go down to find the ball and fetch it back. Camillo got very good at fetching a ball. They are teaching each other and they both took a long nap at the end of the afternoon.

Today Camillo will travel to the USA and because we are now responsible parents I will stay at the house. I hope this time will allow Spritzer and I to fully bond. I don't know how good I will be at fetching the ball, I am not very patient. I'll let you know.


  1. Great photos. Sure doesn't look like tropical Brazil. I can see it must get nippy there at times; almost Flagstaff. :-)

    Nice house....

    Do you have any security there? I mean, New Dog is not exactly the Secret Service.


  2. Flagggstaff gets snow - Nova Friburgo may have a low of 10C or about 50 - feels cold but never snows. we have an alarm system that is supposed to be monitored - etc. we also live in a condo.... with live guards - take that idea with a grain of salt.

  3. Great shots. Love your house and garden, too.
