Coal is the best ball dog I've ever met. He will fetch until you say "take a break" and then he will find a place to sit and wait until he thinks you will play again. He doesn't realize the break is for him because he is really tired.
It all started when the kids went off to school and my husband and I decided to get another dog. We fell in love with a Labradoodle puppy, but boy was she a lot of work! We soon discovered that with both of us working during the day, our pup Mocha needed some exercise mid day or she would go stir crazy (and be a real handful when we got home from work)! Then the recession hit and I found myself out of my socialwork job at Transitions for Youth. That is when I discovered the Bronte off leash dog park and started walking dogs during the day.
Now I am having so much fun I don't know if I could ever go back to working in an office again. I love meeting new dogs, getting them into small social groups, and taking them for mid day walks. The dogs have a great time, and the owners get some quiet time at home with their socialized and exercised pet.
