Going for a walk without a toy for Coulee has it's pros and cons.
The Pros include: she actually sniffs around her environment and goes exploring (this can also be a con if she finds yucky stuff), she is usually more calm and relaxed and it is a nice change of pace.
The Cons include: she doesn't get nearly as much exercises and often in the evening acts as if she didn't get any exercise at all and she usually turns Lacey into her personal squeaky toy.
Fortunately for Lacey that only lasted for a few minutes the other day until I could settle things down. The problem usually starts when Lacey gets the zoomies and Coulee can't resist the chase.
The problem is when Lacey stops and it turns into this....
Sometimes Lacey can hold her own, but it isn't very often.
And unfortunately for Lacey the repeated beat downs resulted in a very dirty pup. Stay tuned for her resulting bath photos. :)
