From her first attempt to one of her last, Corona, our Dogo Argentino, sure made us laugh on a sunny afternoon at the cottage.
Setting up, for the first time, her complete obstacle course took more time than realizing she just didn’t have the energy to put her all into it. Corona was walked through the weave poles ok, was more than happy to sit at the pause box, quickly trotted through the open tunnel and ecstatic to sit again at the finish line. Only she couldn’t quite bring herself to make it past the first obstacle with gusto.
Catching her many attempts on still and video camera this Dogo Argentino will always be remembered for her jumping ability. Giving her some credit, she did swim tons already that morning and the day before so she was pretty tired. And, as can be our luck, she was vibrant the next day after we took the course down.
Maybe next time we’ll start with the course and reward her with a swim!
After many attempts at getting the ball, this Dogo Argentino proved to have less stamina then I and gave up before I did. Corona loved catching the ball and playing on the beach right up until she almost collapsed from exhaustion.
We had to go back the next day, but didn’t mind, to get her to play again and renew her zest for the ball to get the second picture. The one that impresses everyone who sees it.
With all this Dogo Argentino’s power and stamina I cannot imagine what an intruder would ever think when entering our house. We can’t wait to get back out to the ocean to practice Corona’s ball catching, Paul’s leash handling and my photo-taking.
