Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Nick has 2 great dogs golden retrievers and his wife, a vet, was looking after a puppy too. The retrievers look similar at a glance but one is 12 and one just 2. The older one is the fittest looking golden retriever I've ever seen. Doesn't seem to have any stiffness in it's legs at all.

The 6 week old puppy is a collie/retriever cross and was pretty couragous (stupid) in playing tug of war with the 2 year old and nipping everyone in sight. Things came to a head when the pup nipped the 2 year old's tail and hung on as she spun around ("she got air"!). Things had clearly progressed to the next level of puppy induced irritation at this point and important lessons in pecking order followed!

All highly entertaining!
